Packers could face Cards two weeks in a row


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers pulled it off, rallying from a 4-4 start to make the playoffs.

Now heading into Sunday's regular season finale at Arizona, Packers coaches face a unique strategic challenge: Given the fact that they could play the Cardinals again in the first round of the playoffs, coaches must decide if they should go all-out for a victory Sunday -- or rest key players and keep some of the plays they think might work best against Arizona under wraps.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy wasn't particularly eager to talk about his approach to potential back-to-back games against the same opponent, saying Monday that it does the team "no good" to discuss such things in public.
