Warner Back in Playoffs

For the first time since losing Super Bowl XXXVI on a last second field goal to New England in 2002, Panther alum Kurt Warner will start an NFL playoff game.  Saturday his Arizona Cardinals host the Atlanta Falcons at 3:30 here on KWWL. 

The Falcons head to Arizona with one of the leagues best running games featuring Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood. Atlanta rookie QB Matt Ryan will go up against former league MVP and Super Bowl winner Kurt Warner. The Falcons are playing with confidence after having won five of their last six games to finish with an 11-5 record. Arizona limped down the stretch after locking up the NFC West early and will need to rely on Warner's playoff experience because very few players on the Cardinals have the type of big-game experience needed in games of this magnitude.
