The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers meet Sunday in NFL action at the Lambeau Field.
The Arizona Cardinals could use a feel good win here after losing five of their last six games. The Arizona Cardinals have lost their last three road games. Josh Rosen is completing 55.5 percent of his passes for 1,521 yards, 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Rosen has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his nine career games. Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald have combined for 996 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while David Johnson has 34 receptions. The Arizona Cardinals ground game is averaging 77.3 yards per contest, and Johnson leads the way with 692 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 26.6 points and 364.6 yards per game. Antoine Bethea leads the Arizona Cardinals with 87 tackles, Chandler Jones has 11 sacks and Tre Boston has three interceptions.
The Green Bay Packers need a win here to save their season after losing four of their last five games. The Green Bay Packers have won their last three home games. Aaron Rodgers is completing 61.7 percent of his passes for 3,271 yards, 20 touchdowns and one interception. Rodgers has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 12 games. Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham have combined for 1,508 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while Marquez Valdes-Scantling has 25 receptions. The Green Bay Packers ground game is averaging 106.4 yards per contest, and Aaron Jones leads the way with 606 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 24.3 points and 355.2 yards per game. Blake Martinez leads the Green Bay Packers with 96 tackles, Kyler Fackrell has eight sacks and Jaire Alexander has one interception.
The Cardinals are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 13 and 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games in December. The Packers are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. NFC, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in Week 13 and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The home team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Packers last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Cardinals last 7 games overall.
The Arizona Cardinals have been held to 18 or less points in five of their last six games and three of their last four losses have been decided by double digits. The Green Bay Packers pretty much need to win out to have any chance of sneaking into the playoffs, and they finally finished what was a brutal schedule stretch that included four tough road games. The Arizona Cardinals are 3-6-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a double-digit underdog. The Green Bay Packers have covered six of their last nine games as a double-digit favorite. The Packers aren't good enough as a team to be throwing out chalk like this, but the Cardinals are that bad. We saw the Cardinals last week turn a 10-point lead into a 45-10 loss. I want no part of the Cardinals. It's either Packers or pass for me.
