Preja vu: Panthers/Cardinals preview

We preview the season opener between the Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers for National Football Authority.

(By the way, if you don’t know what preja vu is, it’s the opposite of deja vu. Deja vu is thinking you’re experiencing something that already happened; preja vu is trying to project how something will happen before it actually takes place. Yes, it’s a term we made up.)
