The Arizona Cardinals will not have to face Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton but they still have a lot to contend with
Just because the Arizona Cardinals will get to see Carolina Panthers backup quarterback Kyle Allen instead of starting quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday does not automatically mean it is time to relax.
The Panthers may be 0-2 but plenty of players they need to worry about. The Cardinals are still seeking their first victory as well.
It’s not just one side of the ball either. The Cardinals will face huge talent on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, which could provide struggle at times.
These three players should be the biggest concern for the Cardinals. Let’s hope they are prepared to still face a stiff test.
Arguably one of the best linebackers in the NFL, Kuechly has had a little success against the Cardinals in the previous two games he’s played against them in the regular season. In the postseason, even more success in two games.
He has one sack and one interception in the regular season against the Cardinals. He has two interceptions in the postseason, one of which was returned for a touchdown in the 2015 NFC Championship Game.
He was all over the field last Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had 18 tackles, tow of them for a loss, including a safety. He hasn’t lost a step, so let’s hope the Cardinals offense is well aware of his presence.
