TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals watched virtually defenseless as Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers tore them to shreds -- first in a preseason game, then in a meaningless regular-season finale.
The Cardinals withheld whatever tactics they thought would give the quarterback problems, saving them for Sunday's wild-card game.
Whether anything Arizona does will work against the Packer's strong and accurate quarterback will go a long way toward determining the outcome.
While the Cardinals want to bring pressure, they have to worry about the potent Green Bay running game, too, and the fact that Rodgers has become good at getting rid of the ball in a hurry.
