On Friday evening at famous Lambeau Field two of the NFL's oldest and storied franchises will meet for their 21st preseason game. History runs deep between the Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers and the blood, sweat and tears will flow once more at 5:00 p.m. PT as Week 2 of the NFL preseason continues. You, good fans, will be seated on your couch or in your reclining chair with your favorite beverage and snacks at hand as you turn your television sets to ABC Channel 15 and let the sound of the battling warriors wash over you.

Cardinals' coach Ken Whisenhunt has made it clear this week that he has no intention of adjusting his plan to meet the strengths or weaknesses of the Green Bay Packers. Whiz has an agenda for his team that includes familiarizing his offense with the offense and to test the defense against the Packers offense.
In Week 1 of the preseason, the Cardinals played 80 players and were pleased with all four of their quarterbacks who racked up a combined 297 yards, three TDs and a 126.7 passer rating. The running backs looked good at times with rookie Ryan Williams perhaps even pushing Beanie Wells for the starting job.
This week at camp, the defense has reportedly reasserted itself after getting sand kicked in their faces early on. It will be nice to see if we see any improvement there on Friday both from the pass rush and the secondary.
Watch the Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers, NFL Preseason Week 2 at Lambeau Field at 5:00 p.m. Arizona time on ABC Channel 15 or KTAR radio.
