The Cardinals have (excuse the expression) flown under the radar in the playoffs so far. Yeah, not any more. The Cardinals, who had trouble selling out their first home playoff game in a lifetime, had little trouble selling out the stadium for the NFC Championship Game. In fact, it took only six minutes. The Cardinals fans are at full boil, and now the players are having to find a way to fight through the distractions.

But now all of the Cardinals are worried. In fact, there is at least one player who is embracing the experience.

    “I’d rather have these distractions than me calling somebody to see if I can grab some tickets,” defensive lineman Bryan Robinson said. “It’s all right, man. It’s my 12th year, and this is the first time I’ve been in an NFC Championship Game. So I don’t mind these distractions right now.”
