The Cardinals will look to take advantage of a banged up Packers squad as the two teams face off on Sunday.

The Arizona Cardinals are in a free fall and their gift for such an occasion is a red-hot, though short-handed, Green Bay Packers squad at Lambeau Field.

The Cardinals (4-4) are reeling after following an undefeated start with four straight losses, bringing them back to earth and back to .500. The Packers are finally rolling after a slow start to their season but the Cardinals are catching them at a time where they're banged up all over the place. Greg Jennings, Cedric Benson, Charles Woodson and Jordy Nelson are all dealing with significant, long-term injuries. Jerel Worthy and Mike Neal also were injured last week.

The Cardinals must take advantage. The Packers defense gives up 21.3 points per game but the Cardinals are only putting up a paltry 15.9. A stellar defensive effort only gives up 17.8 points so if the Cardinals can manage 21 points and keep the Packers around what the defense usually gives up, they'll have a victory on their hands.

Game Time: 1:00 pm ET
