Carolina Panthers vs Arizona Cardinals takes place on Sunday in one of the late afternoon games in week 5 of the NFL 2013 regular season. This game may be overlooked by most of the nation – outside of fans of both teams – as most of the country will be tuning into the unbeaten Denver Broncos' trip to Dallas to face off against the Cowboys, who are undefeated at home this season.
Nevertheless this is an important game for both the Panthers and Cardinals as both look to improve on their mediocre starts to the season. The game will start at 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Panthers come into week 5 on 1-2 having had a bye week in week 4. The Panthers had lost their opening two games of the season, but then gained a morale-boosting 38-0 win over the lowly New York Giants.
They will be hoping they can take the momentum from that massive win into week 5 and hoping gain a second win to get them back to .500 today.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 2-2 having gained a good 13-10 win last week on the road at Tampa Bay. Despite their record of 2-2 though they will have concerns about their offense, which has yielded an average of just 10 points per game over the past two weeks.
Through the season so far the Cardinals are ranked 27th in the NFL for total points scored, averaging just 17.2 points per game, and they will want to improve on that record as they cannot rely on their defense to bail them out each week.
