Cardinals vs Saints tickets should yield a huge shooting match. Make no mistake, these are two of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. It was almost inevitable that they should end up meeting each other in the NFL Playoffs. Had circumstances been different, it wouldn’t have surprised anyone to see the Saints and Cardinals meet in the NFC Championship.
So now the New Orleans Saints, reeling from three consecutive losses to end the regular season, will play host to an Arizona cardinals team that got hot at the end of last season and ran all the way to the Super Bowl. Kurt Warner looks as good as ever, tossing five touchdowns in a massive pointfest against the Green Bay Packers. When Warner gets hot, he’s impossible to stop. He’ll need to be hot to keep up with the Saints.
New Orleans delivered the most prolific offense in the NFL in 2009, as Drew Brees passed his way to another Pro Bowl season. The emergence of Robert Meacham as a counterpart to Marques Colston and Jeremy Shockey makes this the most dangerous Saints offense ever. What New Orleans is hoping to dial up is the defense. Early in 2009 the New Orleans defense was dangerous but lately has proven susceptible to a strong running game.
