Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers 6:40 p.m. Sunday, FOX (PANTHERS- 3)
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers look great as they are racing towards Levi Stadium and Super Bowl 50. This Panthers team is simply the best in the NFL in all three phases and faces a Cardinals team that could be their kryptonite as they are arguably the second best in all three phases so something has got to give on Sunday night in the Carolina’s.
The Panthers just seem like they are playing too well and with such confidence that not only would it take Zona’s best game of the year to take down the NFC’s one seed on the road, but even that might not be enough. It has been a banner year for Cards QB Carson Palmer and you have to love the two former #1 overall draft picks going at it with a Super Bowl appearance on the line. However, Newton with his feet and arm will get the job done sending Carolina back to the big game for the first time since they were defeated by a late Adam Vinatieri field goal and the New England Patriots back in the 2003 season.
The League’s clear choice for MVP will shine on Sunday night and while the Cards will put up a good fight, Cam Newton will show just how ready he is to win it all and his defense will show they are ready to stop whoever the AFC has to offer.
