Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers
The Cardinals and Packers are two of the NFL’s oldest teams. The Cardinals joined the NFL in 1920, and the Packers followed a year later in 1921. The two teams are not division rivals, but recent playoff games have ignited interest in the matchup between them.
The Packers have had two of the best quarterbacks in football over the past 25 years. Brett Favre was the Packers’ QB between 1992 and 2007 and led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in 1996. In 2008, after Favre’s first retirement and eventual trade to the Jets, rookie Aaron Rodgers took over for the Packers and has been the QB in Green Bay ever since. Rodgers led the Packers to a Super Bowl win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.
The highest-profile Cardinal is the ageless wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who is still going strong with the team at age 34. Fitzgerald holds franchise records for the Cardinals in almost every major receiving category, including receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. Fitzgerald would also become the playoff hero for the Cardinals in their 2016 matchup against Green Bay in the NFC Divisional game.
Historic Cardinals vs. Packers Games
“The Craziest Playoff Game of the Century”: This matchup from the 2016 playoffs is famous for its roller coaster ending: you couldn’t count either team out of the game until the very end. The Cardinals took a late lead in the game when a pass bounced off a Packers defender and into the arms of receiver Michael Floyd. The Packers got the ball back, but the Cardinals defense forced them into a 4th and 20 situation. QB Aaron Rodgers scrambled and made a huge throw downfield to Jeff Janis, and the Packers converted on the 60 yard reception. With five seconds left and down by a touchdown, Rodgers threw a perfect Hail Mary pass to the end zone, and the Packers tied the game and forced overtime.
But the OT period was all Cardinals. Larry Fitzgerald caught a pass on the first play of overtime and took the ball all the way to the Packers’ 5 yard line. Fitzgerald ultimately scored the game winning touchdown on a shovel pass from Carson Palmer.
