Cardinals and Packers threaten 100 total points

The two teams combined for 96 points in the 2009 wild-card playoff game the Cardinals took in overtime, winning 51-45. That game featured a Hall of Famer at quarterback in Kurt Warner against a future three-time NFL MVP in Aaron Rodgers.

Fast-forward to 2021, and the Packers still have a future Hall of Famer under center in Rodgers, who continues to play at a high level. Arizona has a legitimate MVP contender in their starting quarterback spot in Kyler Murray.

Even without Davante Adams, the Packers will still threaten to ignite the Cardinals’ defense, despite Arizona giving up just 29 points since Week 5.

Look for both offenses to score at least 40 points in this one, with both teams threatening to go over the 100-point threshold.

It may not exactly be the Wake Forest-Army game from last week where the teams combined for 126 points. But you can expect this potential preview of the NFC Championship to get hot from the first snap.

Prediction: Arizona wins this one 51-48, totaling 99 points
