The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals begin their preseason schedules on Friday night when they meet at Lambeau Field. Green Bay enters the 2013 season with the Super Bowl on its mind after falling to the San Francisco 49ers in last year's NFL Divisional round, while the Cardinals are just trying to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
This game will be Carson Palmer's Cardinal debut after joining the team via trade from Oakland this offseason. He won't play long, but a couple connections with Larry Fitzgerald would go a long way toward making Arizona fans happy.
The focus for Green Bay will be on their pair of rookie running backs, Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. It seems like Lacy is the leader for the starting job at the moment, but there should be plenty of carries to go around. However, Lacy missed practiced during the week and might not play Friday.
Friday, Aug. 9, 8 p.m. ET
Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wis.
