You can throw this NFC Divisional matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals in the conversation as one of the greatest playoff games in NFL history. In a tight game from the start, the lead between both teams was never extended beyond seven points.
Going into the fourth quarter, the score was 20-13. The Packers had the ball, and it was fourth down and 20 on their own 4-yard line. The "Cheesehead" fans of Green Bay thought that they were miraculously going to come back and beat the Arizona Cardinals tonight after Aaron Rodgers threw a miraculous 41-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Jeff Janis, which tied the score at 20-20 as time expired, and pushed the game into overtime. This was absolutely insane! Just like the unthinkable Miracle in Motown Hail Mary earlier this season in Detroit that Rodgers completed to beat the Lions.
But within just one minute and on their first drive to start the sudden death overtime, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer shoveled a pass to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who caught and took it a whopping 75 yards and broke multiple tackles to score the game-winning touchdown. It was Fitzgerald's only touchdown of the entire game, with a total of 8 receptions and 176 yards.
OMG! Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than the Hail Mary from Rodgers, this happens. The Cardinals won 26-20, and move onto the NFC Championship game to face the winner of the Seahawks-Panthers NFC Divisonal game.
