Ready for a rematch?

The Green Bay Packers play the Arizona Cardinals tonight in a rematch of the Week 16 game between these two teams. The Packers suffered an embarrassing 38-8 defeat in that game, but come into the desert this weekend rejuvenated following their Wild Card win in Washington last Sunday.

The Cardinals, however, are healthy and rested following a bye last week. They also played in week 17 like they had a bye as well, as they were drubbed at home by the Seattle Seahawks 36-6.

The Packers have no Davante Adams this time around, as the receiver suffered an MCL sprain last week. The secondary will be worth watching as well, with Sam Shields and Quinten Rollins both recovering from injuries. Thankfully, David Bakhtiari is back at left tackle, and with the starting five all together again on the offensive line, Aaron Rodgers should be better-protected this week than he was in Week 16. In that game, he was sacked eight times and lost two fumbles that were returned for Cardinals touchdowns.
