2016 NFL playoffs: Cardinals vs. Packers preview and picks video

Matt Ufford previews the game and picks the Cards to cover.

With the Arizona Cardinals set to host the Green Bay Packers this Saturday in the divisional round of the playoffs, the SB Nation Studios crew of Matt Ufford and Uffsides previewed the game. Ufford mentions the Alex Okafor injury loss as a key loss, which it is. However, he did mention injury reserve, which was not technically the same thing as what happened, as Okafor's season was ended when he was placed on the non-football injury list.

Ufford also jokes about how Aaron Rodgers must envy how Carson Palmer has all the receivers.

He notes how if the Cardinals win, it would be their second time to play in a conference championship game in 70 years. Then he essentially throws away all the St. Louis years.

In terms of picking the game, Ufford thinks the seven-point spread is probably too much for a playoff game, but he takes the Cardinals to win by at least a touchdown anyway.
