Cardinals rout Packers behind ferocious defensive effort

Posted:
GLENDALE, AZ (AP) -

Arizona sacked Aaron Rodgers eight times and returned two of his fumbles for touchdowns on Sunday in a dominant 38-8 victory that clinched a first-round playoff bye for the streaking Cardinals.

Carson Palmer threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns for Arizona (13-2).

In all, the Packers were sacked nine times in by far their most one-sided loss of the season. Dwight Freeney had three and Calais Campbell 2 1/2. Cory Redding rambled 36 yards with one of the fumbles for a score, Jerraud Powers took another five yards for a touchdown.

Green Bay is home against Minnesota in its regular-season finale next Sunday.
