Cardinals defeat Packers in overtime playoff thriller

Posted:
GLENDALE, AZ (AP) -

The Arizona Cardinals sent the Green Bay Packers packing for the season in a 26-20 NFC Divisional playoff victory that became an instant classic in overtime.

Aaron Rodgers delivered his second Hail Mary touchdown of the season, following his regular season magic act in Detroit. He launched a deep touchdown to Jeff Janis with no time left on the clock in the fourth to tie the Cardinals, 20-20.

Arizona responded with a big play of their own as Larry Fitzgerald took a Carson Palmer pass deep into Green Bay territory. Palmer's shovel pass to Fitzgerald found the end zone to clinch the postseason win.
