Phil's Forecast

What's this?

BEST BET: *
Weather: Mostly Sunny, Mid 80's, Winds 6-8 mph - Following a horrid start to 2016 where they return from their bye week with just 1 win on the season (at home against SF!!), the Panthers are hoping to get back into form against a Cardinals squad that's looking for redemption following a blowout loss in Charlotte in LY's NFC Championship. While the Cardinals did dominate the Seahawks in nearly every statistical category LW in Glendale, they were unable to get the victory in a 6-6 tie (short FG's missed on both sides in OT). With ARZ having a bye of their own on deck and coming in as an underdog against a 1-win team, I agree with my computer's forecast and will call for the outright upset.
