Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals

If you like defense, Sunday's game between the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale should feature plenty. At least, don't expect much in the way of offensive fireworks.

The Panthers rank No. 3 in the NFL giving up just 12 points per game through three games played this season. They should be fresh heading into Arizona, coming off a bye week following their 38-0 drubbing of the New York Giants.

The Panthers bring with them the league's No. 3 rushing offense at 151.3 yards per game. Unfortunately for them, the Cardinals have the No. 2 rush defense, allowing just 75 yards per game, less than half of what the Panthers have been averaging on the ground. If the Panthers want to win, they may need to rely on Cam Newton's arm.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, have yet to score more than 25 points in a game this season, and are coming off an ugly 13-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This may be a good week to take the under.
