The Panthers came loaded for bear. Good thing I'm not a betting man. This will make the Divisional matchup with the Seahawks much more interesting.
The Panthers will struggle against the Cardinals suffocating defense and will not be prepared for the Cardinals offense. I believe the Cardinals will pull off this win, even with their third string quarterback. The Cardinals defense is twice what the Panthers have to offer, and the Arizona quarterback is starting to produce both yards and points. Lindley has proved that he can throw touchdowns, and I'm sure he'll cut back on interceptions as he progresses. He's been tested by fire, having been thrown into the mix against the tough defenses in the NFC-West. Lindley could not have come out at a more opportune time, given the Cards were already guaranteed a playoff berth. This timing gave him free experience against the best defenses in the league. Don't look at his average, but his progress. The Cardinals quarterback will be hot come game time. The Cardinals coaching staff will have a superior game plan. Cardinals 24 - 9 over the Panthers. The Seahawks will face the Cardinals for the third time in the Divisional Playoffs.
