The Cardinals vs. Panthers live stream online and televised 2016 NFC Championship game will arrive on Sunday as the NFL’s two best teams record-wise battle for a spot in the Super Bowl. NFL MVP candidate Cam Newton has led Carolina to a 15-1 season and will try to bring his squad to the big game, but it won’t be easy. While the Panthers will host this game at Bank of America Stadium, they’ll take on the league’s best offensive team, Arizona. The Cardinals had 6,533 yards of total offense this season ranking them first there, while also leading in yards per game. Can the tough-minded Panthers defense stop Carson Palmer and his crew? The 2016 NFL playoff live stream and televised coverage will be presented through FOX sports networks.
According to NFL.com in their Jan. 23 report, this matchup will feature two teams facing each other with the highest combined win total in the playoffs since 2004. It’s also the first time in the Super Bowl era that two teams which average 30 or more points will face off. That said, it looks to be a shootout between Cam Newton’s Panthers and Carson Palmer’s Cardinals, two franchises that have also made it to the Super Bowl, but never won it. Both Newton and Palmer played MVP-caliber seasons with the Carolina Panthers QB winning the award. However, it was Palmer who paced the NFL in many categories when he played on the road.
These included points per game (32.8), yards per game (426.3) and passing yards per game (292.8). Arizona also led the league in net total yards this season with a total of 6,533 and was second only to New Orleans in total passing yards with 4,616. Carolina ranked No. 24 in that category and No. 11 in net total yards with 5,871. However, the team was No. 2 in rushing yards with 2,432 and No. 6 in terms of their defense which allowed opponents to score just 19.3 points on average per game, compared to a league-leading 31.3 for the Panthers. That said this game has the makings of a classic at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium to determine the 2015 NFC Champions.
The line first opened in Vegas for this game with Carolina favored by a field goal and that number has held strong through most of the past week. In terms of winning against the spread, Carolina was 11-5 ATS overall and 6-2 ATS at home this season. The Cardinals were 9-7 overall and 6-2 away ATS, making this an intriguing game to pick the winner for. The over/under points total is at 48 points for the game. Over the course of the past season, these two teams ranked at No. 1 and No. 2 in points scored on average per game, with Carolina first averaging 31.3 and Arizona second with 30.6 points per game.
