NFC Divisional Highlights: Cardinals top Packers in wild overtime thriller

01/17/2016

GLENDALE, AZ – Larry Fitzgerald had two receptions for 80 yards and the game-winning touchdown overtime as the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Green Bay Packers 26-20 in an NFC Divisional Playoff Game that will go down as one for the ages.

Arizona took the lead late on a deflected pass intended for Fitzgerald that was instead caught by Michael Floyd. Green Bay answered on the final play of regulation as Aaron Rodgers found Jeff Janis for a game-tying score on a Hail Mary as time expired.

Arizona then won the overtime coin toss – but only after the coin was thrown up a second time after it failed to flip the first time. It was that kind of night.

The Cardinals drove the length of the field in three plays and Fitzgerald’s score ended the game.

Kevin Kugler and James Lofton called the action on Westwood One.
