The Packers and Redskins battled it out in the final game of wildcard weekend, and after a fast start by Washington, Green Bay's intensity picked on both sides of the ball as they played one of their first complete football games in awhile.
They will now travel to Arizona to take on what might be the most complete team in football in the Cardinals. Carson Palmer has had the offense clicking at a ridiculously high level all season, particularly in prime time. They complement that with a fierce defense that will pose some problems to a Packers offense that has been erratic at times, but found a groove against Washington? Will Green Bay be able to pull off a road upset, or will Arizona continue to cruise to the NFC Championship? It'll be a tough task for Green Bay, who lost to Arizona 38-8 in Week 16 and gave up 9 sacks. Arizona's hot streak will continue to the NFC Championship. Cardinals 31, Packers 23
