The 4-4 Arizona Cardinals look to end their four-game losing streak with a win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and this may be their best chance.
The Packers are struggling with a number of injuries. Greg Jennings has a torn abdominal muscle, Cedric Benson has a sprained foot and Charles Woodson has a broken collarbone.
Jordy Nelson has a hamstring injury and is considered questionable for Sunday's game.
The Cardinals are also plagued with injuries and this has resulted in a weakened offense.
The team's top two running backs remain out, which has stalled the rush-game.
In Monday night's loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Cardinals managed just seven rush yards. That's the fewest since totaling minus-1 on Oct. 18, 1953.
"We're just not doing enough things offensively now where we can say anybody's being real productive,” said Cardinals head coach, Ken Whisenhunt. So our focus now has to be on as an offense, as a group, running the ball better, throwing the ball better, staying on the field longer, scoring more points.”
However, neither team's offense struggled in their last meeting on Jan. 10, 2010. The Cardinals beat the Packers in that matchup, 51-45 in overtime.
Prediction: Cardinals 13, Packers 35
