That's just silly. We barely won last time at home.

I expect this game to go alot like denver. It will be close in the first half but in the second half we should wear them down with our running game. Hopefully we don't fall into a hole like the first time so we don't have to make such a big comeback.

I fear Vegas will lose a lot of money if that line remains static...

So have they.

That spread is way too high. I don't buy for a moment that the cardinals will be a pushover or this game will be a blowout.

I expect a very tough game, one I hope the Panthers win.

And so have the Cardinals. I think it will be a close game all the way through and hope is that the Cardinals pull it out in the end.

Everyone knows how hard it is to beat any NFL team twice in the season. Last time the Cardinals relied on the pass heavily and really only went to the ground during red zone situations. Look for the Cards to keep your defense true which will give our recievers a little more space downfield. The Cardinals defense has stepped it up these last two game and are really finishing tackles unlike 10 weeks ago. They will also force turnovers which should make for an interesting game.
The Cardinals are also extremely motivated and coming into this game with a little bit of momentum. Especially with that 10 pt spread that Vegas has we still feel like we aren't getting any respect. They know that if they win and get some help from Philly over the G-Man they will be headed back to the desert for the NFC Championship Game. It's do or die and they will play that way.

Final Prediction: 27-26 Cards

The Cards have not improved since playing us. They had not 1, not 2, not 3, BUT 4 EMBARRASSING LOSSES To Philly, New England, Giants, & Minnesota at their own house out of all people. Must have forgot about that

I give credit to winning against Falcons. But only difference is actually trying to establish a run

I don't get how that performance doesn't qualify as improvement.

Yeah they played badly when the playoffs were locked up and nothing was really on the line (bad coaching there) but those conditions no longer apply.

Like someone else here said, Panthers are 8-0 at home, Cardinals are 0-5 on the road against non-NFC West teams.

I'm not scared of anybody at home.

Actually something was on the line. They still had a chance of getting a higher seed. You don't mail it in when there is still a chance. You only do that when there is not one.

They couldn't have risen higher than number three, and there's no practical difference between the third and fourth seeds. Both have to play in the wild card round at home. The only difference is who you match up against.

I agree you shouldn't mail it in, but I think you'd have to say they did. To me, that's on the coaches.

They have not improved in my opinion. They beat Atlanta. A team that has poor DB's because they ran the ball about twice as much as any other game they have played all year and Atlanta's key to defending the pass, Abraham, got mauled on an off day.

They are a good team and they do indeed have a chance against anybody in the league with that O. I strongly disagree with any notion that they have shown improvement since they played us however. After all they played damn near perfect against us and if you take into consideration what they have done collectively since that day, using the word "improvement" is reaching...a BUNCH.
