    Wow.....this game was beyond intense. Cardinals hosted the Packers in a game that would have huge playoff implications for both teams. Both teams were forced to make huge clutch plays just to keep this game close. The game started right off with fireworks as the Packers drove down the field on their first possession capped off by an Eddie Lacy TD. The first Arizona possession ended in an quick 3 & out. Green bay's Randall Cobb would then return the ensuing punt to within the Redzone placing the Packers in scoring position. Cobb finishes the drive with a TD catch to put the cheeseheads up 14-0. It appeared as if things were going to get ugly. However, Carson Palmer wasnt backing down that easy. AZ would score on there next drive after and early threat of another 3 & out. Instead picking up a huge 3 & 26 to keep the drive going. They would eventually score on a David Johnson 7 yrd TD run. 14-7. Ok now we have a ball game. Green Bays next drive would stall and be forced to punt. Then....this happened.....
    TE J. Fauria would score on a catch and run for an 86 TD. 14-14 at the half. The Packers could feel the momentum beginning to slip. After trading score for score making it 21-21, Green bay again found itself in scoring range with a chance to take the lead heading into the 4rth quarter. Enter the HONEYBADGER....
    A sack fumble by LB Daryl Washington would be recovered by FS T. Mathieu and taken back for 6! What was looking like a 28-21 lead for GB heading into the 4rth became just the oppisite and AZ was surging late in the game. GB would march down the field on the following drive and punch it in again with Lacy. AZ would then be held to a FG. 31-28 AZ Aaron Rodgers would once again pull out some fourth quarter magic on this 62 yrd bomb to Jordy Nelson....
    Setting up the FG to tie the game and send it into OT. AZ wins the toss, elects to recieve, rips off a nice return placing them immediately in FG range. Casron Palmer continues to drive the ball down the field UNTIL.....
    FS/Nickel CB Micah Hyde picks Palmer off and returns it for 6 in OT to clinch a playoff spot!

    Great game Hordan54! It def was a nail biter all the way to the end.
