The Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers face off today in an NFL wildcard playoff football game which sees both teams facing challenges. The Cardinals are 11-5 on the season but are down to their third quarterback, while the Panthers have a 7-8-1 losing record and only squeaked into the postseason due to a weak NFC South division. Today’s game has an afternoon start time and airs on a surprising TV channel as well as a live stream available online.
Ryan Lindley starts at QB today for Arizona, taking the place of the injured Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. He has potent weapons at his disposal like wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, but failed to produce in his previous start and was nearly benched in favor of the fourth stringer. Despite the superior record, the Cardinals are on the road today due to having not won their NFC West division. Carolina is starting Cam Newton, who just a few weeks ago broke his back in a car accident but has recovered rapidly. The Panthers defeated the Falcons in their regular season finale to earn their way into a home playoff game.
Today’s Arizona Cardinals vs Carolina Panthers NFL playoff football game has a start time schedule of 4:20pm EST and airs on TV channel ESPN, as opposed to the usual network postseason broadcasts. The game is also available as a live stream online.
