Packers are set for possible playoff preview

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals won't know until kickoff just how much their regular-season finale with the Green Bay Packers might mean.

Most likely, it's just a tuneup for a much more meaningful rematch with the Packers on the same field in the first round of the playoffs. Then again, there's a chance a first-round bye could be at stake for the NFC West champions.

For the Packers (10-5), winners of six of their last seven, the game means nothing more than whether they get the No. 5 or 6 seed as a wild card. But they are insisting they won't ease up on the pedal as they approach the postseason.

Coach Mike McCarthy says they won't be sitting players and will go in wanting to win.
