Packers-Cardinals: Three Keys
Position Battles Left guard, right outside linebacker and safety are the three contested spots in the starting lineup. TJ Lang, Erik Walden and Morgan Burnett have the inside track. An impressive performance tonight could solidify a starting spot for Week One.
Time To Shine For rookies and others on the roster cut bubble tonight could be the last chance to make a name for yourself. The next preseason game is the dress rehersal and four days after that the first round of roster cuts are made. After tonight chances to seperate from the pack will be limited.
Birds Of Prey Like Cleveland last week, Arizona will put more emphasis on this game than the Packers. With a new quarterback in Kevin Kolb the Cardinals will take every chance to get him on the same page as star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The Packers will counter with a fully loaded secondary early on.
