Packers rout Cardinals 33-7 in playoff preview


GLENDALE, Ariz. (ASSOCIATED PRESS)— The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers knew well before kickoff that they would be playing each other again on the same field in a few days.

The Cardinals can only hope this wasn't a preview of that first-round playoff matchup.

Aaron Rodgers, playing mostly against the Arizona reserves, shredded the Cardinals in a 33-7 Packers rout on Sunday.

Rodgers played three quarters, completing 21 of 26 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown.

Charles Woodson returned an interception 45 yards for another score as the Packers (11-5) won for the seventh time in eight games.

It was the most one-sided home loss for Arizona in coach Ken Whisenhunt's three seasons with the Cardinals.

Arizona (10-6) sat quarterback Kurt Warner after one quarter. Backup Matt Leinart completed 13 of 21 passes for 96 yards and was intercepted twice.
