The Slumping Arizona Cardinals will face the rising Green Bay Packers this week. The Cardinals started off the season 4-0, but have since lost 4 straight to get to an even 4-4 record this season. The Packers, on the other hand, started slow but have since got hot. They are currently 5-3 on the year and have a chance to gain some ground in a division they fell behind in from their early play. Arizona could all but be eliminated from any playoff hopes with a loss. The game will kickoff at 1 PM ET at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
Arizona has simply looked terrible as of late. The offensive line is hands-down the worst in the league. They give up constant sacks and continuously give their quarterbacks no time to throw the ball. I say quarterbacks because both have gone down with injuries this season after being demolished by opposing defenses. Skelton, who should start this Sunday, has been knocked out (literally) this season. Kolb, who accounted for all of the Cardinals wins, has been out due to injured ribs suffered on a sack. The team has lacked a running game as the lineman can not block for that either and it honestly is a miracle that the team won 4 games.
Green Bay seems to be hitting a championship stride as they have found their identity again. Their last week came in Green Bay against the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-15. They have won 3 straight, and have not lost a game since week 5 in Indianapolis. Currently they find themselves behind the Bears for the division lead. They have been trying to gain ground, but the Bears continue to win games. It may just end up coming down to these two meeting to decide who will take the division.
