Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
This ought to be a very good game. Carolina has been stunningly good all year. Arizona, at times during the course of the season, looked like the best team in the league. Cam Newton looks like the Most Valuable Player in the NFL. Both teams play great defense. Both teams can score. While Carolina has shown a propensity in recent weeks to give up big leads and let teams back in, Arizona did not look invincible against the Packers in the Divisional Playoff.
So, who wins? I think it’s Carolina in a close, hard fought game. I think the do enough to get into Palmer’s head and into the pocket and force a late mistake.
Carolina will punch their ticket to the Super Bowl… the question is, who from the AFC will they play?
