The over is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Arizona has struggled this season with their only win being a miraculous comeback against the Raiders. One thing to remember about the Cardinals is that they have played a difficult schedule this year. For the Panthers, they were able to get away with a win against New Orleans, despite losing the yardage battle by over 100 yards. I am going to take the Cardinals in this game as I think their tough schedule really helps them prepare for this game.
