2009 NFC Wild Card: Packers vs. Cardinals | “Most Points Scored in Playoff History” | NFL Full Game


>>THIS OUGHT TO BE A LOT OF FUN HERE THIS AFTERNOON. PLAYOFF FOOTBALL — THE GREEN BAY PACKERS, THE ARIZONA CARDINALS. LET’S HAVE SOME FUN TODAY ON FOX. FROM ABOUT THE 4, JORDY NELSON. SLIDES DOWN RIGHT AT THE 20. THIS OFFENSE FOR THE GREEN BAY PACKERS IS RANKED SIXTH AROUND THE NFL. WE’VE TALKED PLENTY ABOUT AARON RODGERS. RYAN GRANT, A 1,200-YARD SEASON RUSHING THE BALL. AND, FINALLY, TROY, STABILITY ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE.>>WELL, THAT’S BEEN THE REAL KEY FOR THEM OVER THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON — NOT ONLY IN PROTECTING AARON RODGERS, BUT ALSO, THEN, IN THEIR ABILITY TO IMPROVE THEIR RUNNING GAME.>>RODGERS BUYS TIME. VERY GOOD AT DOING THAT. THROWS IT ACROSS THE FIELD. IT’S TIPPED AND INTERCEPTED BY DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE. ARIZONA TAKES OVER AT THE 40.>>FIRST, YOU’RE GONNA SEE DARNELL DOCKETT HERE. HE GETS A PRETTY GOOD PUSH UP INSIDE, WHICH IS ULTIMATELY WHAT GETS AARON RODGERS FLUSHED OUT TO THE RIGHT SIDE. AND THIS IS JUST A MISTAKE BY AARON RODGERS. HE’S THEN ROLLING OUT TO HIS RIGHT. HE TRIES TO COME BACK ACROSS THE GRAIN. HE DIDN’T REALLY HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL AND JUST TRIED FITTING ONE IN TIGHT. SEE RIGHT THERE? KARLOS DANSBY WELL UNDER DONALD LEE, THE INTENDED TARGET. YOU ALWAYS WONDER — I KNOW, IN TALKING WITH MIKE McCARTHY COMING INTO THIS GAME, HE WANTED TO GET AARON RODGERS SOME EASY COMPLETIONS EARLY, LET HIS NERVES SETTLE. NOT A GOOD START.>>A GREEN BAY TEAM THAT TURNED IT OVER ONLY 16 TIMES DURING THE REGULAR SEASON AND LED THE NFL IN PLUS-MINUS RATING. THEY TOOK IT AWAY 40 TIMES. AND, YET, THE FIRST TURNOVER BELONGS TO ARIZONA. AS HIGHTOWER CARRIES IT FOR 2. CULLEN JENKINS BRINGS HIM DOWN. HERE’S THE OFFENSE FOR ARIZONA. KURT WARNER PULLING THE LEVERS, AND LARRY FITZGERALD, THE PRO BOWLER, ON THE OUTSIDE. AND AN OFFENSIVE LINE THAT HAS JEREMY BRIDGES, TROY, AT LEFT TACKLE, AND HE WILL HAVE HIS HANDS FULL WITH CLAY MATTHEWS, THE ROOKIE, COMING OFF THE EDGE.>>WELL, THAT’S A GROUP, AS A WHOLE, THAT HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT INCONSISTENT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. I KNOW, IN TALKING WITH COACHES, THAT’S A GROUP THAT HAS TO BE BETTER TODAY. JEREMY BRIDGES, LAST WEEK, GOING UP AGAINST CLAY MATTHEWS. THAT’S GONNA BE A TOUGH MATCHUP. THEY’RE GONNA GIVE HIM SOME HELP THROUGHOUT THIS GAME.>>WARNER, WITH A GOOD POCKET, THROWS. AND OVERTHROWS LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING. AND IT’S THIRD AND 8. SO, THIS DEFENSE, WHICH HAS FLOURISHED UNDER FIRST-YEAR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR DOM CAPERS — 24th IN THE NFL — 24th SEASON, BUT FIRST IN GREEN BAY. AND THEY HAVE GOTTEN, TROY, BETTER AND BETTER AND BETTER. THEY SMOTHER THE RUN, AND THEN WHEN YOU HAVE TO THROW, CHARLES WOODSON IS WAITING FOR A MISTAKE.>>I THINK THEY’VE ALWAYS BEEN PRETTY GOOD AGAINST THE PASS, BUT, YOU KNOW, THE RUN GAME IS WHERE THEY REALLY NEEDED TO IMPROVE, AND, BOY, DID THEY DO THAT. NUMBER-ONE RUN DEFENSE IN ALL OF FOOTBALL.>>THIRD AND 8. BLITZ COMING. MATTHEWS DOESN’T GET THERE. AND THE PASS IS COMPLETE FOR A FIRST DOWN TO JERHEME URBAN. 13 YARDS ON THIRD AND 8 TO JERHEME URBAN, WHO HAD 18 CATCHES DURING THE REGULAR SEASON.>>WELL, I KNOW THIS IS WHERE ARIZONA FELT THAT THEY COULD HAVE SOME SUCCESS. THEY GO STACKED SETS, YOU SEE THERE, TO KURT WARNER’S RIGHT SIDE, AND GREEN BAY HAS SHOWN SOME PROBLEMS IN BEING ABLE TO COVER RECEIVERS IN THEIR COMBO PACKAGES. YOU SEE THEY TURN JERHEME URBAN LOOSE. THEY WERE IN FOUR WIDE RECEIVERS THAT TIME. BECAUSE OF THE INJURY TO ANQUAN BOLDIN, JERHEME URBAN, THEN, IS THEIR FOURTH RECEIVER IN THAT PACKAGE.>>HAND-OFF IS TO THE ROOKIE, BEANIE WELLS. RUNS RIGHT OVER TRAMON WILLIAMS AND TAKES IT TO THE 11.>>WELL, A NICE JOB, YOU’RE GONNA SEE, JUST WORKING OFF THAT LEFT SIDE. HERE’S TRAMON WILLIAMS. HE’S THE GUY WHO’S GOT TO TRY TO MAKE A TACKLE. HECK, HE WAS FALLING BACKWARDS BEFORE BEANIE WELLS EVEN GOT TO HIM.>>HOW ABOUT THIS START FOR ARIZONA? AFTER LOSING HERE AT HOME, 33-7, TO THE PACKERS LAST WEEK, THEY GET AN EARLY TURNOVER ON THE FIRST THROW FROM AARON RODGERS. AND NOW IT’S FIRST AND 10 FROM THE 11. PENALTY FLAG ON THE PLAY, AS WELLS CARRIES IT TO THE 6. AND IT’S A FALSE START.>>ILLEGAL FORMATION, OFFENSE, SIX MEN ON THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. 5-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT AARON RODGERS — YOU SAW HIM ON THE SIDELINE. TERRY BRADSHAW TALKED ABOUT IT IN OUR PREGAME SHOW. IT TYPICALLY DOES COME DOWN TO TAKING CARE OF THE FOOTBALL. RODGERS, WHO THREW FOR 30 TOUCHDOWNS, ONLY 7 INTERCEPTIONS. FEWEST BY A GREEN BAY QUARTERBACK SINCE THE LEAGUE WENT TO A 16-GAME SCHEDULE, IN 1978. HE THROWS A PICK ON HIS FIRST ATTEMPT. HERE’S ARIZONA INSIDE THE RED ZONE, FIRST AND 15. THIS IS THE BEST TEAM IN THE NFL IN THE RED ZONE. DOWN TO THE 5 IS BREASTON.>>YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE MATCHUPS WE TALKED ABOUT COMING INTO THIS BALLGAME WAS GONNA BE CHARLES WOODSON, AND HIM — FOR THE MOST PART, HE’S GONNA BE MATCHED UP WITH LARRY FITZGERALD. IT’S A GOOD MATCHUP BETWEEN THOSE TWO. KURT WARNER CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO SHY AWAY FROM THROWING HIM THE FOOTBALL. THAT TIME, CHARLES WOODSON WAS ONE-ON-ONE WITH FITZGERALD. AND KURT WARNER’S WORKING THOSE COMBINATION ROUTES TO HIS FRONT SIDE WITH A LOT OF SUCCESS HERE ON THIS FIRST POSSESSION.>>WARNER LOOKING RIGHT THE ENTIRE TIME. HITS STEPHENS HOWLING, WHO FIGHTS… BUT CAN’T GET IN. MAY HAVE ENOUGH FOR A FIRST DOWN. TRAMON WILLIAMS, FIRST GUY TO HIT HIM. IT CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING HAS GIVEN ARIZONA — AND HE HAS — FIRST AND GOAL FROM INSIDE THE 1.>>WELL, WHAT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE RIGHT NOW HERE EARLY IN THIS BALLGAME, JOE, IS THAT WHEN KURT WARNER HAS TIME TO THROW THE FOOTBALL, HE IS AWFULLY DANGEROUS. IN GAMES WHERE HE HAS BEEN SACKED ONLY ONE TIME, HE HAS NOT THROWN AN INTERCEPTION. WHEN HE’S BEEN SACKED MORE THAN ONCE, THAT’S WHEN HE’S HAD HIS 14 INTERCEPTIONS ON THE SEASON. SO FAR, GREEN BAY HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET ANY PRESSURE ON HIM WHEN HE’S DROPPED BACK IN THE POCKET.>>ON FIRST AND GOAL, HIGHTOWER SLAMS IT IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN.>>JOE, THEY PUT DARNELL DOCKETT, NUMBER 90, THE DEFENSIVE TACKLE, WHO FLUSHED AARON RODGERS OUT OF THE POCKET — THEY’RE GONNA PUT HIM RIGHT HERE AT FULLBACK AND LET HIM LEAD THE WAY, A LA “REFRIGERATOR” PERRY BACK IN 1985 FOR THE BEARS.>>HE WASN’T ALONE. THEY BROUGHT IN GABE WATSON, BIG NUMBER 98 — 6’4″, 329. AND HIGHTOWER JUST PLOWED IN BEHIND THEM FOR THE FIRST POINTS OF THE DAY. AND IT’S 7-0, ARIZONA. DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE WAS INJURED LAST WEEK, WEEK 17 — GOT SPIKED ON THE KNEECAP, HAD A BRUISE. BUT HE WORKED HIS WAY THROUGH THAT DURING THE WEEK AND HE GETS THE EARLY INTERCEPTION ON AARON RODGERS’ FIRST THROW OF THE DAY. TIP BY DANSBY. AND THE CARDINALS LEAD, 7-0. NOW JORDY NELSON GETS ANOTHER TRY AT IT. SLID DOWN AT THE 20 LAST TIME. RUNS INTO BODIES AT THE 22. STILL GOING. AND A LOT OF WORK JUST TO GET IT TO THE 20. RALPH BROWN ON THE STOP. DESPITE THE EARLIER REPORT, THE ROOF IS CLOSED HERE IN GLENDALE. AND IT’S HOLDING THE NOISE VERY WELL. SECOND PLAY FROM SCRIMMAGE. IT’S RYAN GRANT OVER THE RIGHT SIDE. GETS 10 AND A FIRST DOWN. AND WE GO BACK TO THAT BIG BACKFIELD FOR THE TOUCHDOWN.>>DARNELL DOCKETT AND GABE WATSON. AND DARNELL DOES A GOOD JOB HERE ON THE LEAD BLOCK. 600 POUNDS OF LEAD BLOCKING RIGHT THERE. TIM HIGHTOWER’S GOT TO BE PRETTY EXCITED WITH THAT PACKAGE. SEE DARNELL DOCKETT. HE GOT A PIECE OF A.J. HAWK. BARNETT WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD GET THERE TO MAKE A PLAY. BUT, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING THAT THEY HAVE NOT SHOWN.>>THE GREEN BAY DEFENSE HAD ALLOWED ONLY FIVE RUSHING TOUCHDOWNS ALL SEASON — TIED FOR THE FEWEST IN THE NFL. ARIZONA HAD TO GO TO A BIGGER BACKFIELD TO GET IT IN. HERE IS DONALD DRIVER. AND IT’S RIPPED OUT. RECOVERED BY… ARIZONA.>>PRETTY SAFE THROW. DONALD DRIVER GETS IT INTO HIS HANDS, AND DANSBY — YOU KNOW, YOU SEE HE’S GOT HIM STOOD UP AND IMMEDIATELY GOES RIGHT FOR THE BALL. NICE PLAY ON HIS PART. YOU KNOW, HE COMES OUT AND IS THE GUY WHO’S ABLE TO MAKE THE TACKLE AND THE HIT ON DONALD DRIVER. AND JUST AN OUTSTANDING JOB, ON HIS PART, OF STRIPPING IT. YOU KNOW, COMING INTO THIS GAME, GREEN BAY PACKERS THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND. YOU KNOW, WITH THE CARDINALS AND THE WAY THEY HAD TURNED THE BALL OVER THIS SEASON, THEY FELT THAT THEY HAD A REAL ADVANTAGE. AND THE PACKERS, WHO HAD PROTECTED THE BALL ALL YEAR — THEY COME OUT FIRST TWO POSSESSIONS, AND TWO TURNOVERS.>>HERE’S BEANIE WELLS OVER THE RIGHT SIDE TO THE 15-YARD LINE. FOR GREEN BAY, THEY’VE RUN THREE PLAYS FROM SCRIMMAGE, TURNED IT OVER TWICE, AND KARLOS DANSBY HAS BEEN THE REASON WHY. HE TIPPED THE PASS FROM AARON RODGERS THAT ENDED UP IN THE ARMS OF DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE AND THEN HE RIPPED IT OUT OF THE ARMS OF DONALD DRIVER. AND THE THREE PLAYS — TWO OF THEM HAVE BEEN PASS PLAYS, AND THEY’VE RESULTED IN TURNOVERS. BACK –>>WELL — SORRY, JOE. KARLOS DANSBY IS ONE OF THOSE ATHLETIC GUYS. HE’S A GREAT COVER GUY. HE’S DECENT AGAINST THE RUN. BUT THEY’RE ABLE TO DO A LOT OF THINGS WITH HIM, AND HE IS A PLAYMAKER AND HE HAS SHOWN THAT HERE IN THE EARLY GOING.>>SECOND DOWN AND 3. AND OVER THE MIDDLE. DOUCET, TOUCHDOWN.>>WELL, YOU CAN SEE THAT GREEN BAY IS JUST HAVING SOME REAL PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW WITH THE STACKED SETS THAT THE ARIZONA CARDINALS ARE SHOWING, OFFENSIVELY.>>EARLY DOUCET WASN’T ACTIVE UNTIL MIDSEASON BECAUSE OF SHOULDER AND RIB INJURIES. WE CERTAINLY GET OVERLOADED WITH STATISTICS DURING THE COURSE OF AN NFL SEASON, BUT ONE OF THEM THAT JUMPED OUT AT YOU WAS THE PLUS-24 IN THE TURNOVER RATIO IN FAVOR OF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS. THEY LED THE NFL BY A MILE. NEXT-CLOSEST WAS PHILLY, AT PLUS-15. BUT IT’S BEEN TWO TURNOVERS HERE EARLY AND 14 POINTS OFF THE TURNOVERS PUT UP BY ARIZONA. AS JORDY NELSON RETURNS IT FOR 18 YARDS. WILL DAVIS IS THERE FOR THE STOP. AND A PENALTY FLAG COMES IN AT THE END OF THE RETURN AFTER THE TOUCHDOWN BY DOUCET. IT FOLLOWED A FUMBLE BY THAT MAN, DONALD DRIVER. WE’LL GET THE CALL FROM SCOTT GREEN, THE REFEREE.>>PERSONAL FOUL, UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS — RECEIVING TEAM, NUMBER 47. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>WE’LL GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED ON THIS PLAY. YOU’RE GONNA SEE DOUCET HERE, BUT HERE’S THE ROUTE HERE. AND JARRETT BUSH, NUMBER 24 — HE TURNS HIM LOOSE. JARRETT BUSH — EVERYBODY’S IN MAN COVERAGE UNDERNEATH. AND A LOT OF THE REASON WHY YOU GO TO THOSE STACKED LOOKS IS — WHEN YOU’RE PLAYING AGAINST A DEFENSE THAT RUNS A LOT OF MAN COVERAGE, IT’S HARD TO DECIPHER. THERE’S THE PENALTY ON THAT PLAY.>>MATT GIORDANO WITH THE SHOVE ON LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING. SO, IT FORCES GREEN BAY TO START AT ITS OWN 8. HAND-OFF IS TO RYAN GRANT. NO GAIN. FINALLY, WE CAN GIVE YOU A LOOK AT THIS ARIZONA DEFENSE. THEY PLAY A 3-4. DARNELL DOCKETT IS A PRO BOWLER. THEY HAVE A PRO BOWLER ON THE BACK END, IN ADRIAN WILSON AND THE CORNERBACK DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE, WHO HAS AN INTERCEPTION ALREADY. SECOND AND 10. RODGERS DROPS IT OFF TO RYAN GRANT. AND GRANT’S TRIPPED UP BY ANTREL ROLLE. GOOD TACKLE BY THE FORMER CORNERBACK, NOW A FREE SAFETY. THAT SAVED A FIRST DOWN. GAIN OF 9.>>WELL, I THINK ANTREL ROLLE — I MEAN, A GUY WHO IS IN HIS SECOND SEASON AT SAFETY. CAME INTO THE LEAGUE AS A CORNER. AND THAT’S ONE OF THE AREAS WHERE — I DON’T KNOW THAT HE HAS SURPRISED PEOPLE, BUT, TYPICALLY, WHEN YOU HAVE A GUY WHO IS A COVER CORNER, LIKE ANTREL ROLLE WHEN HE CAME INTO THE LEAGUE, THEY’RE A LITTLE RELUCTANT TO GET INVOLVED AND TACKLE. BUT HE IS A PRETTY SURE TACKLER THERE ON THE BACK END.>>THIRD DOWN AND A LONG 1. PENALTY FLAG ON THE PLAY, AS AHMAN GREEN GETS IT ON THE TOSS. GETS A FIRST DOWN TO THE 20. AND THE EARLY INDICATION IS — OFFSIDE, DEFENSE. IF THAT’S THE CASE, EITHER WAY, IT’S A FIRST DOWN, PACKERS.>>OFFSIDE — DEFENSE, NUMBER 53. 5-YARD PENALTY. FIRST DOWN.>>THAT IS CLARK HAGGANS, WHO’S PLAYING IN HIS 12th PLAYOFF GAME. HE WAS INACTIVE LAST YEAR WITH A LISFRANC SPRAIN IN HIS FOOT, WAS ON I.R., AND MISSED THAT FUN POSTSEASON RUN BY ARIZONA THAT LANDED THEM IN THE SUPER BOWL. FIRST DOWN, PACKERS, AND A RATHER IMPORTANT ONE, CONSIDERING THEY’RE DOWN, 14-0, AND THEY STARTED THIS DRIVE AT THE 8. RODGERS THROWS. AND THAT’S THE TIGHT END HAVNER. SPENCER HAVNER’S GOOD FOR 5.>>WELL, SO FAR, WHAT WE’VE SEEN HERE — I MEAN, SO MUCH FOR MIKE McCARTHY AND AARON RODGERS WANTING TO GET OFF TO A GOOD START, YOU KNOW, AND LET AARON RODGERS’ NERVES KIND OF CALM DOWN A LITTLE BIT. IF ANYTHING ELSE, THEY GOT ELEVATED AFTER THE FIRST PLAY OF THE GAME. BUT SINCE THEN, YOU KNOW, THEY’VE DONE A GOOD JOB OF TRYING TO MIX IT UP. RYAN GRANT HAS HELPED WITH SOME OF HIS RUNS. THEY’VE THROWN SOME PRETTY SAFE THROWS AND JUST TRYING TO GET HIM BACK INTO SOME TYPE OF LEVEL OF COMFORT.>>SECOND DOWN AND 5. FOUR MEN ON THE RUSH. AND THIS ONE’S DOWNFIELD FOR JENNINGS. OVERTHROWN. AND RODGERS IS YELLING AT HIMSELF, AS HE JUST MISSED A HOME-RUN BALL THAT WOULD HAVE JUMPED THE PACKERS RIGHT BACK IN THIS GAME.>>BOY, HE SURE DID. THEY GOT EXACTLY THE MATCHUP THEY WANTED. THEY HAD NO SAFETY HELP OVER THE TOP ON GREG JENNINGS. AS YOU SEE, ONE-ON-ONE ON RALPH BROWN. AND A BALL THAT AARON RODGERS — HE HAS NOT MISSED MANY OF THOSE THIS YEAR. YOU DON’T THROW FOR 4,400 YARDS IN THIS LEAGUE AND MISS MANY OF THOSE TYPES OF OPEN RECEIVERS.>>HAD 10 COMPLETIONS OF 50 OR MORE YARDS DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. PACKERS HAVE NOT BEEN IN THIS POSITION ALL YEAR — DOWN 14. THIRD AND 5. FOUR-MAN RUSH AGAIN. RODGERS IN TROUBLE. DOWN HE GOES. WHAT A START FOR THIS DEFENSE, AS BERRY MADE THE PLAY.>>JUST NOWHERE FOR AARON RODGERS TO THROW THE FOOTBALL. JERMICHAEL FINLEY — HECK, THERE WERE THREE GUYS ON HIM. HE HAD TWO RIGHT UP CLOSE AND THEN A SAFETY OVER THE TOP. THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT BILL DAVIS WILL DO. HE’LL COVER UP THE RECEIVERS AND THEN PUT SAFETIES IN BEHIND IT — SOMEWHAT OF A PREVENT-TYPE LOOK. IT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR A QUARTERBACK, THEN, TO FIND AN OPEN MAN. [ WHISTLES BLOWING ]>>PENALTY FLAGS. PRIOR TO THE PUNT, A FALSE START. BILL DAVIS IS THE FIRST-YEAR COORDINATOR.>>FALSE START — OFFENSE, NUMBER 26. 5-YARD PENALTY. FOURTH DOWN.>>BILL DAVIS, FIRST-YEAR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE ARIZONA CARDINALS, SPENT SEVEN YEARS UNDER DOM CAPERS, WHO’S THE COORDINATOR FOR THE GREEN BAY DEFENSE. THIS IS ABOUT AS BAD A START AS THE GREEN BAY PACKERS COULD HAVE HAD — ON THE ROAD, IN THE PLAYOFFS, FIRST START IN THE POSTSEASON FOR AARON RODGERS. THIS IS AS BAD AS IT GETS.>>AND A TEAM THAT CAME INTO THIS GAME FEELING AWFULLY GOOD JUST A WEEK AGO IN THIS SAME STADIUM.>>KAPINOS HITS IT. ON THE RETURN, IT’S BREASTON. STILL ON HIS FEET FOR A MOMENT. LOST THE FOOTBALL. THEY’RE SAYING THE PLAY IS ALIVE. EITHER WAY, ARIZONA GETS BACK ON TOP OF IT, AND THEY AVOID A TURNOVER. THIS HAS BEEN A WILD-CARD WEEKEND AROUND THE NFL THAT HAS BEEN LARGELY FILLED WITH BLOWOUTS, INCLUDING TODAY, EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON, WITH NEW ENGLAND GETTING BLOWN OUT AT HOME BY BALTIMORE. HERE’S A LITTLE FLEA-FLICKER. WARNER HAS IT KNOCKED OUT OF HIS HAND. ARIZONA GETS BACK ON TOP OF IT. CLAY MATTHEWS, THE ROOKIE, WHO HAD 10 SACKS, WAS THERE TO KNOCK IT OUT. AND NOW THE TWO TEAMS START TO ROUGH IT UP. LOOKED LIKE JEREMY BRIDGES GOT BACK ON THE LOOSE FOOTBALL. LOSS OF 5 ON THE PLAY. HOW GOOD IS THIS GUY, CLAY MATTHEWS?>>HE’S HAD ONE HECK OF A ROOKIE YEAR. 10 SACKS TO LEAD THE TEAM. THIS IS ASKING A LOT RIGHT HERE OF YOUR LEFT TACKLE YOU’RE ALREADY CONCERNED ABOUT, IN JEREMY BRIDGES. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU RUN THAT TYPE OF FLEA-FLICKER BACK TO YOUR QUARTERBACK — AND CLAY MATTHEWS IS RELENTLESS COMING AROUND THE EDGE AND CONTINUING IN ON A QUARTERBACK. NOW, THIS IS WHAT KURT WARNER HAD DOWN THE FIELD — STEVE BREASTON, NUMBER 15. HE GOT IN BEHIND TRAMON WILLIAMS RIGHT HERE. SO THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY, IF HE WAS AFFORDED MORE PROTECTION IN THE POCKET.>>IT GOES DOWN AS A SACK FOR MATTHEWS, THIRD-GENERATION NFLer. AND HERE’S FITZGERALD GETTING IN ON THE FUN. LARRY FITZGERALD GETS 15 YARDS, AND IT APPEARS HE HAS ENOUGH FOR AN ARIZONA FIRST DOWN. HE DOES.>>YOU KNOW, LAST WEEK, CHARLES WOODSON JUMPED A SLANT ROUTE FOR AN INTERCEPTION. AND, IN VISITING WITH LARRY FITZGERALD AND TALKING ABOUT GOING UP AGAINST CHARLES WOODSON, HE SAID ONE OF THE REAL KEYS IS, YOU JUST CANNOT TIP YOUR HAND. HE FELT RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT INTERCEPTION LAST WEEK BECAUSE HE GLANCED IN TO THE SLANT, AND CHARLES WOODSON, BEING A VETERAN CORNER, JUMPED IT. AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS LARRY FITZGERALD’S GONNA TRY TO DO IN THIS BALLGAME IS BE MUCH MORE PRECISE AT THE TOP OF THOSE ROUTES.>>WARNER DOWN THE MIDDLE. HITS BEN PATRICK, HIS TIGHT END. EVERYTHING’S WORKING FOR ARIZONA. 22 YARDS TO NUMBER 89.>>WELL, THE TIGHT END DOESN’T GET A LOT OF BALLS IN THIS OFFENSE. BEN PATRICK, RIGHT HERE, A TIGHT END — HE JUST RUNS A SEAM ROUTE RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE, AND NOBODY’S LOOKING FOR HIM. HE COMES INTO THIS BALLGAME WITH ONLY 12 RECEPTIONS. BUT A NICE JOB KNOWING WHERE THE WEAKNESS WAS WITHIN THAT SCHEME. NICK COLLINS THE GUY WHO GOT BEAT IN COVERAGE.>>SIX COMPLETIONS TO SIX DIFFERENT RECEIVERS FOR WARNER TO START HIS DAY. HERE’S BEANIE WELLS, WHO LOST HIS FOOTING. NO GAIN. YOU KNOW, TROY, WHEN YOU START LOOKING AT THE OVERALL NUMBERS FOR KURT WARNER IN THE PLAYOFFS AND WHAT HE HAS DONE IN HIS CAREER — 8-3 ALL TIME. AND THEN YOU LOOK AT HIS FIGURES IN THE SUPER BOWL ALONE. HE HAS THE TOP-THREE PASSING DAYS BY HIMSELF IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY.>>YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT A GUY WHO’S A TWO-TIME LEAGUE MVP. HE’S BEEN PHENOMENAL. HE’S BEEN PHENOMENAL. HIS NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, AS FAR AS WHAT HE’S DONE IN THE REGULAR SEASON, BUT WHEN HE HAS GOTTEN INTO POSTSEASON, THOSE NUMBERS HAVE GOTTEN EVEN BETTER. SO, HERE’S A PLAYER WHO PLAYS AT A HIGH LEVEL DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, BUT TAKES IT TO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENTLY LEVEL IN POSTSEASON, AND THAT’S WHY HE’S WON SO MANY GAMES.>>WIDE OPEN IS BREASTON. ANOTHER BREAKDOWN IN COVERAGE FOR THE GREEN BAY PACKERS. DOWN TO THE 9 FOR ARIZONA.>>BOY, RIGHT NOW, THIS IS LOOKING A LITTLE BIT LIKE THE PITTSBURGH GAME THAT WE HAD A FEW WEEKS AGO, WHEN BEN ROETHLISBERGER THREW FOR OVER 500 YARDS IN THAT GAME. DOM CAPERS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT HE CAN DO TO CLEAR UP SOME OF THE COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS OUT THERE ON THE FIELD. WE’RE SEEING A LOT OF THE SAME STUFF FROM ARIZONA — SOME OF THE COMBINATION ROUTES, STACKING RECEIVERS — AND THEY HAVE JUST NOT COMMUNICATED THAT VERY WELL AMONGST THEMSELVES IN PICKING THE PROPER RECEIVERS UP.>>THEY’VE BEEN READY TO PUT TOGETHER A STATUE FOR DOM CAPERS OUTSIDE LAMBEAU FIELD FOR WHAT HE’S DONE THIS SEASON. HIS DEFENSE IS GETTING WORKED. WARNER JUST THROWS IT AWAY. AND KURT WARNER ENDS UP ON HIS BACK. PRESSURE BY CLAY MATTHEWS.>>YOU KNOW, BUT WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO. I MEAN, OTHER THAN THE PITCH-BACK TO KURT WARNER AND TRYING TO TAKE THE SHOT DOWN THE FIELD, REALLY HASN’T HAD A LOT OF PRESSURE. AND, YOU KNOW, KURT WARNER, AS WE KNOW — HE’S NOT SOMEONE WHO’S GONNA BUY A LOT OF TIME IN THE POCKET. HE IS A POCKET PASSER AND HE IS GONNA THROW FROM ONE SPOT AND HE IS ONE OF THE MOST ACCURATE QUARTERBACKS IN THE LEAGUE WHEN HE HAS THAT KIND OF TIME TO THROW. AND SO THEY’VE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO GENERATE MORE PRESSURE ON KURT WARNER THAN WHAT THEY HAVE.>>SECOND AND GOAL. HAND-OFF IS TO BEANIE WELLS. AND HE GOES BACKWARD. WELL-PLAYED. NICK COLLINS WAS UP THERE TO MAKE THE STOP. FIRST GUY THERE WAS MATTHEWS. AND A LOSS OF 5.>>YEAH, CLAY MATTHEWS COMES UP, AND THEN HE GETS ENOUGH THERE OF BEANIE WELLS TO BOUNCE HIM TO THE OUTSIDE. AND BEANIE WELLS HAS HAD A HECK OF A ROOKIE YEAR, AS WELL. CAME INTO THE SEASON A LITTLE BIT SLOW, MISSED SOME OF TRAINING CAMP, WAS INJURED EARLY. BUT HE’S GOTTEN MORE AND MORE CONFIDENT. IN FACT, IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON, HE’S GOTTEN MOST OF THE CARRIES. HE AND TIM HIGHTOWER ARE THE TWO THAT RUN THE FOOTBALL. BUT BEANIE WELLS’ ATTEMPTS HAVE GONE UP AS THE SEASON HAS GONE ALONG.>>IT’S THIRD DOWN AND GOAL. GOOD POCKET. WARNER THROWS, COMPLETES. BUT WELL SHORT OF THE END ZONE. THAT’S DOUCET, WHO HAS A TOUCHDOWN. IT’LL BRING UP FOURTH DOWN, AND THE FIELD-GOAL UNIT TROTS ON FOR ARIZONA. BUT MORE POINTS FOR THE CARDINALS, IF NEIL RACKERS CAN KNOCK IN WHAT’S BASICALLY A CHIP SHOT. AND WARNER, AS IS TYPICAL, COMES OVER TO THE SIDELINE HOT. ABOUT AS MILD-MANNERED A GUY AS YOU’LL EVER FIND AWAY FROM THE FIELD, COMMUNITY-ORIENTED, GOT A BIG HEART, A LEGITIMATE GOOD GUY. HE GETS FIRED UP ON GAME DAY. 23-YARDER IS GOOD BY RACKERS. REMEMBER THE PART EARLIER WHEN WE TOLD YOU THAT THE GREEN BAY PACKERS HAVEN’T TRAILED BY 14 POINTS THIS SEASON? YEAH, WELL, THAT WASN’T RIGHT. THEY TRAILED THE VIKINGS, 24-3, ON NOVEMBER 1st. AND THE ROOF IS STILL CLOSED. JORDY NELSON ON THE RETURN AFTER RACKERS DOES HIS THING. INSTEAD, IT’S TO ONE OF THE UP BACKS. THAT’S JOHN KUHN, THE FULLBACK. AND DECENT STARTING FIELD POSITION FOR THE PACKERS, WHO ARE DOWN BY 17. AND WE WELCOME YOU INTO OUR LITTLE HOME HERE IN GLENDALE. AND HOW YOU LIKE THIS ONE?>>WELL, I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, THIS DIDN’T START OUT THE WAY THAT THE GREEN BAY PACKERS WERE HOPING. AND I THINK, RIGHT NOW — I MEAN, NOTHING HAS GONE WELL. NOT ONLY OFFENSIVELY, BUT NOTHING’S GONE WELL FOR THEM DEFENSIVELY. THE KEY FOR THEM RIGHT NOW IS — PLAYING FROM THIS KIND OF DEFICIT, THEY’VE JUST GOT TO FOCUS ON TRYING TO, SOMEHOW, MOVE THE BALL RIGHT NOW AND COME AWAY WITH SOME TYPE OF POINTS. YOU KNOW, ONE SCORE, AND THEY’RE RIGHT BACK IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS THING. BUT THEY’VE GOT TO HAVE SOME THINGS HAPPEN POSITIVELY FOR THEM, ‘CAUSE RIGHT NOW, THE CARDINALS ARE FEEDING OFF OF THIS EMOTION.>>A BLITZ. RODGERS BACKPEDALING AS HE GETS RID OF IT. AND THERE’S JUST NOTHING THERE. WELL, YOU’RE RIGHT, TROY. I MEAN, FOR GREEN BAY, ONE TOUCHDOWN, THEY FEEL MUCH BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES. AND THIS IS A TEAM THAT SCORED 461 POINTS DURING THE REGULAR SEASON TO SET A FRANCHISE RECORD. THEY CAN LIGHT UP THE SCOREBOARD.>>WELL, THEY CERTAINLY CAN. AND WHAT THEY DIDN’T DO A GOOD JOB OF IS — THEY DIDN’T MANAGE THE INITIAL EMOTIONAL SURGE OF THE BALLGAME. AND, YOU KNOW, HAVING BEEN A PART OF A LOT OF BIG GAMES, A LOT OF PLAYOFF GAMES, THAT HAPPENS, PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU’RE THE TEAM THAT’S PLAYING ON THE ROAD. AND AARON RODGERS — YOU KNOW, YOU WANT TO TELL YOURSELF, AS A QUARTERBACK EARLY ON, “IT’S OKAY TO PUNT.”>>THIS ARIZONA DEFENSE IS PLAYING. THAT WAS WATSON WHO MADE THE TACKLE. A GAIN OF 2 BY RYAN GRANT. AND THAT SHOULD BE IT FOR THE FIRST QUARTER. AND WHAT A QUARTER IT WAS FOR THE WINNERS OF THE NFC WEST AND THE DEFENDING NFC CHAMPION ARIZONA CARDINALS. THEY LEAD, 17-0. ALL ARIZONA. GREEN BAY, OFFENSIVELY, HAS RUN 10 PLAYS FOR 13 YARDS, TWO FIRST DOWNS, AND TWO TURNOVERS. AND NOW IT’S THIRD AND 9. BLITZ COMING. OVER THE MIDDLE. IT’S JENNINGS. AND DID THE GREEN BAY PACKERS NEED THAT. TO THE ARIZONA 35 ON A BEAUTIFUL THROW FROM AARON RODGERS.>>AND THAT’S GONNA REALLY HELP HIM. AND AARON RODGERS DOING A GOOD JOB OF MOVING THE SAFETY, WHICH ALLOWS JENNINGS, THEN, TO BE ABLE TO RUN UP THE SEAM. BUT IT REQUIRED AN AWFULLY GOOD THROW IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. YOU KNOW, THAT’S AN AREA OF THE FIELD — NOW, WE SAW THE ONE THAT HE MISSED A LITTLE BIT EARLIER, BUT THE SAME AREA OF THE FIELD THERE IN THE SEAM AND A WELL-THROWN BALL.>>27 YARDS ON THIRD AND 9. INSIDE ARIZONA TERRITORY ARE THE GREEN BAY PACKERS. AND NOW RODGERS BUYS TIME BUT DOESN’T BUY ENOUGH. AND UP HIS BACK IS OKEAFOR. A LOSS OF 3.>>A DESIGNED ROLLOUT. I KNOW BILL DAVIS — THERE HE IS — DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE CARDINALS. AND HE’S VERY CONCERNED ABOUT AARON RODGERS ESCAPING THE POCKET. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT HE DOES VERY WELL. AND WHEN YOU GET A QUARTERBACK OUTSIDE THE POCKET, THEY PUT A LOT OF PRESSURE, THEN, ON THE DEFENSIVE BACKS TO BE ABLE TO STICK WITH THE WIDE RECEIVERS. BUT GREAT EFFORT BY CHIKE OKEAFOR COMING BACK. AND THAT’S ONE OF THE REAL TRADEMARKS OF THIS ARIZONA DEFENSE NOT JUST THIS YEAR, BUT LAST YEAR, AS WELL. SOMETIMES, YOU DON’T GET ENAMORED WITH THE NUMBERS, BUT, BOY, DO THEY PLAY HARD.>>SECOND ARIZONA SACK OF THIS GAME. AND A DELAYED HAND-OFF. THAT’S JACKSON. HE GETS 2. THIRD DOWN AND LONG COMING UP. AND, AS YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS FOR AARON RODGERS, TROY, I KNOW HE HAD THE INTERCEPTION ON HIS FIRST THROW AND THEN DRIVER TURNED IT OVER, BUT IF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS ARE GONNA COME BACK AND WIN THIS GAME, HE’S GONNA HAVE TO CUT IT LOOSE AND DO WHAT HE DID ALL YEAR LONG, WHICH WAS ROLL OUT, MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, AND SHOW OFF HIS ARM.>>YEAH, I MEAN, YOU GET INTO A GAME LIKE THIS, THEN, YEAH, IT’S GONNA BE THE QUARTERBACK, AND IT MAKES IT AWFULLY DIFFICULT, THEN, ON THESE FIVE GUYS UP FRONT WHO ARE TRYING TO PROTECT HIM.>>RODGERS WAS THE TOP THIRD-DOWN PASSER IN THE NFL THIS SEASON. THROWS OVER THE MIDDLE. TOO HIGH FOR JONES. HAD HIM OPEN, MISSED HIM. AND IT’S FOURTH DOWN.>>BOY, HE HAD A CHANCE FOR HIM. THERE’S NO DOUBT. I MEAN, YOU’VE GOT ARIZONA, WHO’S PLAYING TWO DEEP SAFETIES, AND THIS IS THE AREA OF THE FIELD RIGHT THERE. YOU KNOW, THEY RAN A GOOD COMBINATION, GETTING JERMICHAEL FINLEY THROUGH THE MIDDLE, WHICH GAVE, THEN, JONES MORE ROOM TO WORK. AND AARON RODGERS JUST HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO QUITE SETTLE IN YET.>>ANTREL ROLLE IS IN THE END ZONE, WAITING. THIS WOULD BE A CAREER LONG FOR CROSBY. TRYING TO DRAW IT BACK IN. AND IT STAYED OUT WIDE RIGHT. ARIZONA WILL START WITH IT AT THEIR OWN 45. STARTING FIELD POSITION HAS BEEN GOOD ALL AFTERNOON. STARTED AT THE GREEN BAY 40, AT THE GREEN BAY 22, AT THEIR OWN 41, NOW THEIR OWN 45 AFTER THE MISS BY CROSBY. BUT THIS GREEN BAY DEFENSE, WHICH LED THE NFL IN TAKEAWAYS, IS GONNA HAVE TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN. AND HERE IS A PLAY — THEY’RE GONNA RULE HIGHTOWER DOWN. RYAN PICKETT WAS OUT THERE, MADE A HIT. BALL CAME OUT. IT’S A 6-YARD GAIN FOR HIGHTOWER. LET’S TAKE ANOTHER LOOK.>>WELL, THAT WAS GREEN BAY’S CHANCE, RIGHT THERE, TO TRY TO GET SOMETHING OUT OF THIS. SEE WHERE THE BALL — AND HE LOOKED LIKE HE MIGHT HAVE EVEN HAD IT BEFORE HIGHTOWER EVEN GOT TO THE GROUND.>>YEAH, YOU KNOW, IT LOOKS LIKE PICKETT JUST TOOK IT RIGHT OUT OF HIS ARMS.>>YEAH, THAT’S A TOUGH ONE TO CALL RIGHT THERE AS TO WHEN EXACTLY PICKETT ACTUALLY HAD IT IN HIS POSSESSION.>>NO CHALLENGE FROM THE GREEN BAY SIDELINE. AND HERE’S BREASTON ON A REVERSE. PICKING HIS WAY THROUGH THE GREEN BAY DEFENSE DOWN TO THE 23. 27 YARDS FOR STEVE BREASTON.>>YEAH, JEREMY BRIDGES DOES A NICE JOB ON THE BLOCK. YOU’RE GONNA SEE HIM HERE AT LEFT TACKLE. BUT THEY COME HERE WITH THE REVERSE, AND BRIDGES THEN SEALS OFF CULLEN JENKINS AND GETS BREASTON, THEN, ON THE EDGE. AND JUST A LOT OF POOR TACKLING ON THE BACK END. I MEAN, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE PACKERS HAVE BEEN SO GOOD IN RUN DEFENSE IS THAT THEY’RE GOOD TACKLERS. A LOT OF GUYS OVERRUNNING IT RIGHT THERE, WHICH ALLOWED BREASTON, THEN, TO PICK UP A LOT OF EXTRA YARDAGE.>>WARNER STEPS UP AND DROPS IT OFF FOR FITZGERALD. NOW THE BALL IS KNOCKED OUT. AND HERE’S MATTHEWS PICKING IT UP FOR GREEN BAY. HOW LONG OF A RETURN? HE’S GONNA BE FORCED OUT OF BOUNDS UP AT THE 48. AND THE PACKERS’ DEFENSE DOES WHAT IT DID ALL YEAR LONG. KNOCKED OUT BY WOODSON. HE DID THAT ALL YEAR LONG. AND GREEN BAY GETS EXACTLY WHAT IT NEEDED.>>WELL, AS YOU SAID, THIS IS WHAT GREEN BAY HAS BEEN KNOWN FOR. CHARLES WOODSON AWFULLY GOOD AT GOING RIGHT FOR THE FOOTBALL. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE SEEN THAT THIS YEAR? AND LARRY FITZGERALD ACTUALLY HAD IT IN A PRETTY GOOD SPOT. HE WASN’T CARELESS WITH THE BALL, BUT WOODSON GOES RIGHT AFTER IT, KNOWING THAT, DEFENSIVELY, THEY HAD TO MAKE A PLAY IN ORDER TO TURN THIS THING AROUND. OUTSTANDING JOB. YOU SEE KURT WARNER. HE’S GOING AFTER LARRY FITZGERALD. NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT AT ALL. THEY HAD A CHANCE TO REALLY PUT THE DAGGER INTO THE PACKERS. AND WHAT AN EMOTIONAL SWING.>>HERE’S GRANT. CUTS UPFIELD. RYAN GRANT LOWERS HIS SHOULDER AND PICKS UP 10. BRYANT McFADDEN DOWNFIELD TO MAKE THE STOP. AND LET’S SEE IF THAT TURNOVER FORCED BY CHARLES WOODSON WILL LEAD TO POINTS AND LEAD TO THE GREEN BAY PACKERS JUMPING BACK INTO THIS FOOTBALL GAME.>>WELL, A LOT WAS MADE OF LAST WEEK, AS FAR AS WHAT THE APPROACHES WERE FOR THESE TWO TEAMS. THE CARDINALS DECIDED TO REST THEIR PLAYERS. STILL EXPERIENCED A NUMBER OF INJURIES. THE PACKERS PLAYED ALL OUT. NO ONE REALLY KNEW WHAT THE RIGHT APPROACH WAS GOING TO BE UNTIL WE SAW HOW THEY CAME OUT HERE TODAY. SO FAR, THAT SEEMS TO BE WORKING PRETTY WELL FOR THE ARIZONA CARDINALS.>>THEY STAY ON THE GROUND WITH RYAN GRANT. AND THAT’S HAYES WHO DRAGS HIM DOWN. AND THEY’RE GONNA THROW A PENALTY FLAG FOR A HORSE COLLAR. PENALTY FLAG ON THE BOUNDARY, AS HAYES MADE THE TACKLE WITH HIS HAND UP IN THE PADS OF RYAN GRANT.>>PERSONAL FOUL, HORSE-COLLAR TACKLE — DEFENSE. 15 YARDS FROM THE END OF THE RUN. FIRST DOWN.>>I GOT TO TELL YOU, JOE — I’M NOT SO SURE THAT WAS A HORSE COLLAR, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THE WAY THAT THE RULE READS IS — HE’S GOT TO BE BROUGHT TO THE GROUND IMMEDIATELY. YOU SEE, YEAH, HE’S GOT THE HAND INSIDE THE JERSEY, BUT THERE’S NOT THAT IMMEDIATE JERKING AND PULLING HIM TO THE GROUND.>>THAT’S THE CALL, AND IT TAKES THE BALL DOWN TO THE 27-YARD LINE OF ARIZONA. GREEN BAY PACKERS COME TO THE LINE TRAILING BY 17.>>AND I THINK THE PACKERS GOT ONE THERE.>>BACK TO THE GROUND GAME, AND IT’S RYAN GRANT. BIG RUN BY GRANT. STILL GOING INSIDE THE 10. DOWN NEAR THE 6. SEVENTH-BEST RUSHING TOTAL — RYAN GRANT, THIS SEASON, WENT OVER 1,200 YARDS.>>YEAH, YOU WATCH THE CUTBACK AND THEN THE BLOCK THAT JERMICHAEL FINLEY MAKES. HE COLLAPSES THAT BACK SIDE, WHICH GIVES, THEN, RYAN GRANT A PLACE TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL. YOU KNOW, HE’D LIKE TO KEEP IT FRONT SIDE, BUT WHENEVER HE SEES A HOLE, HE’S THEN GONNA MAKE ONE CUT AND GO. THAT’S A NICE JOB. NICE EFFORT THERE ON THE BACK SIDE WITH JERMICHAEL FINLEY AND THE REST OF THAT OFFENSIVE LINE.>>WELL, FINLEY WAS JUST BLOCKING. WE’LL SEE IF THEY USE HIM AS A RECEIVER, THAT BIG-BODIED TIGHT END.>>A FIRST AND GOAL. THIS IS AHMAN GREEN. THERE’S NOTHING THERE. BRANCH MADE THE PLAY. NO GAIN.>>WHEN WE SHOWED KURT WARNER COMING OVER AND YELLING, I THOUGHT IT WAS AT LARRY FITZGERALD. ACTUALLY, IT WAS AT EARLY DOUCET. WE TALKED ABOUT IT — DOUCET GETTING HIS OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY BECAUSE OF THE INJURY TO ANQUAN BOLDIN. AND WHATEVER IT WAS THAT DOUCET DID WITHIN THAT ROUTE IS NOT WHAT KURT WARNER WAS EXPECTING.>>THIS GREEN BAY TEAM WAS THE NINTH-BEST IN THE NFL — TOUCHDOWN PERCENTAGE INSIDE THE RED ZONE. IT’S SECOND AND GOAL. RODGERS STEPS UP. TROUBLE FROM BEHIND. THAT’S BERRY. AND THE THIRD ARIZONA SACK OF THIS GAME. BERTRAND BERRY PICKS IT UP.>>YOU KNOW, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT BILL DAVIS WAS TALKING ABOUT. AARON RODGERS — WHEN HE ESCAPES THE POCKET, HE STEPS UP AND THEN HE FLUSHES OUT, TYPICALLY TO HIS RIGHT. AND YOU BETTER KEEP PLAYING. AND BERTRAND BERRY KEEPS ON THE MOVE. YOU SEE HIM THERE. HE WORKED THE OPPOSITE SIDE. BUT AARON RODGERS HAS GOT TO KNOW, WHEN HE GETS OUTSIDE THE POCKET, WHO’S IN THE TRAILING POSITION.>>SECOND SACK FOR BERRY. IT’S THIRD AND GOAL. RODGERS OVER THE MIDDLE. AND THEY’LL THROW A FLAG. DRIVER, THE INTENDED RECEIVER. ADAMS WAS THERE IN COVERAGE.>>INTERFERENCE — DEFENSE, NUMBER 27. FOUL OCCURRED IN THE END ZONE. THE BALL WILL BE PLACED AT THE 1-YARD LINE. FIRST DOWN.>>THAT WAS A GOOD CALL. HE WAS ON MICHAEL GAI– OR MICHAEL ADAMS, EXCUSE ME. AND HE HAD DONALD DRIVER THERE IN THE SLOT POSITION. THEY WENT FIVE WIDE AND WENT EMPTY BACKFIELD. AARON RODGERS MIGHT HAVE HAD A CHANCE FOR A TOUCHDOWN IF HE GETS THAT BALL UP A LITTLE BIT HIGHER. BUT MICHAEL ADAMS NEVER TURNED TO MAKE A PLAY ON THE BALL.>>FIRST AND GOAL NOW FROM THE 1. THEY GIVE IT TO THE FULLBACK. AND KUHN TAKES IT JUST OUTSIDE THE GOAL LINE.>>THEY GAVE IT TO KUHN HERE, AND SPENCER HAVNER COMES IN, NUMBER 41 FOR GREEN BAY, WHEN THEY GET IN THESE TYPE OF SITUATIONS DOWN AROUND THE GOAL LINE. AND HE’S A REAL RECEIVING THREAT WHEN HE’S DOWN THERE. HE ONLY HAS SEVEN RECEPTIONS ON THE SEASON, BUT FOUR OF THOSE HAVE GONE FOR TOUCHDOWNS.>>SECOND AND GOAL. [ WHISTLES BLOWING ] THAT’S HAVNER. AND TIME-OUT IS TAKEN. AND A CONFERENCE NOW FROM THE OFFICIALS PRIOR TO THE SECOND-AND-GOAL PLAY. IT’S THE OFFICIALS CALLING TIME-OUT. WE’LL GET THE CALL FROM SCOTT GREEN.>>ILLEGAL SUBSTITUTION — DEFENSE, NUMBER 27 — GOING OUT THE BACK OF THE END ZONE ON THE PREVIOUS PLAY. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. SECOND DOWN.>>SO IT’S MICHAEL ADAMS. INSTEAD OF COMING OVER TO THE SIDELINE, WENT OUT THE BACK OF THE END ZONE. REALLY, THE PENALTY ISN’T MUCH. IT TAKES IT JUST INCHES CLOSER. IT’S LIKE A RUNNER GOING BACK TO FIRST BASE AND MISSING SECOND BASE. JUST CUT STRAIGHT ACROSS THE INFIELD. ADAMS JUST SAID, “WELL, I’M OUT,” WALKED OUT OF THE BACK OF THE END ZONE. AND IT’S SECOND AND GOAL. AND IT’S CLOSE ENOUGH NOW WHERE RODGERS, A VERY POWERFUL RUNNER AS A QUARTERBACK, COULD JUST POP IT IN.>>YEAH, AND THAT’S KIND OF WHAT I WOULD EXPECT HERE ON FIRST DOWN. YOU KNOW, WHY TAKE ANY CHANCES AT THIS POINT? GET IN BEHIND THOSE BIG GUYS IN THE MIDDLE AND LET IT RIP.>>HE TAKES IT. PLOWS IN. DID HE GET IT OVER THE GOAL LINE, BREAK THE PLANE? NO CALL YET. TOUCHDOWN. A TOUCHDOWN RUN BY AARON RODGERS, WHO HAD FIVE RUSHING TOUCHDOWNS DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. THE PACKERS ARE BACK IN IT.>>WELL, YOU GO BACK TO THAT LAST POSSESSION THERE BY ARIZONA, AS WE SEE THE QUARTERBACK SNEAK HERE IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. BUT THE JOB THAT CHARLES WOODSON MADE IN ORDER TO GET THE BALL LOOSE, YOU KNOW, THERE FROM LARRY FITZGERALD — THE DEFENSE NEEDED TO MAKE A PLAY TO HELP OUT THIS OFFENSE. BUT A GOOD DRIVE THERE BY GREEN BAY IN COMING AWAY WITH A TOUCHDOWN OFF OF THE TURNOVER.>>THINK ABOUT WHERE ARIZONA WAS. THEY WERE UP 17-0. ARIZONA TURNS IT OVER. GREEN BAY PACKERS TURN IT INTO 7. 17-7. 6:52 LEFT IN THE HALF. BIG PASS-INTERFERENCE CALL ON THIRD AND GOAL, WHICH HELPED SET UP THE TOUCHDOWN. ON THE RETURN, IT’S LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING. THERE ARE THE TAKEAWAYS — 2 FOR ARIZONA, 1 BY GREEN BAY. THIS WAS A GREEN BAY TEAM THAT BOTTOMED OUT, A RECORD OF 4-4, WITH A LOSS AT TAMPA BAY ON NOVEMBER 8th. THEY WON 7 OF 8 TO CLOSE OUT THE REGULAR SEASON. WON BIG HERE LAST SUNDAY, TRAIL BY 10. HAND-OFF IS TO BEANIE WELLS. HE STAYS UPRIGHT AND GETS 9.>>BOY, THEY SURE LOOKED GOOD LAST NIGHT. THAT’S TWO GAMES IN A ROW NOW AGAINST THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES THAT THEY JUST COMPLETELY SHUT — THAT DEFENSE FOR DALLAS IS PLAYING ABOUT AS WELL AS ANYONE.>>SECOND DOWN AND 1. AND THE PASS BOBBLED BUT CAUGHT BY BREASTON FOR A FIRST DOWN AT THE 41. AND I’LL TELL YOU — SO FAR, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS HAVEN’T PROVEN THAT THEY CAN STOP ANYTHING ARIZONA’S TRYING TO DO.>>NO, AND NOW THEY’RE TRYING TO BRING A LITTLE PRESSURE ON KURT WARNER. AND YOU SEE, KURT WARNER’S GONNA GET UP. HE WAS WANTING TO SEE THE FLAG. BUT, ACTUALLY, I THOUGHT BRANDON CHILLAR DID A NICE JOB OF PULLING UP. DIDN’T THINK THAT THAT WARRANTED A FLAG THERE. BUT THEY’VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO GET PRESSURE ON KURT WARNER AND MAKE HIM MOVE HIS FEET.>>KURT WARNER IS THE EPITOME OF A RHYTHM QUARTERBACK. HIS WHOLE GAME IS BASED ON TIMING. 2-YARD CARRY BY TIM HIGHTOWER OVER THE RIGHT SIDE. AND THAT GOES BACK TO HIS DAYS WITH MIKE MARTZ AND THE ST. LOUIS RAMS OFFENSE, AND THAT THING WAS LIKE A BALLET, WATCHING IT. IT WAS SO WELL-CHOREOGRAPHED SUNDAY AFTER SUNDAY. AND IT WAS WARNER WHO WAS CALLING ALL THE SHOTS. AS JOHNNY JOLLY IS SLOW TO GET UP. THE MAGIC FORMULA — WHATEVER IT IS — FOR KURT WARNER — ALL THOSE NUMBERS PUT TOGETHER A QUARTERBACK RATING OF 132.4.>>THAT JUST MEANS HE’S PLAYING REAL GOOD.>>UH-HUH. HERE’S BEANIE WELLS WITH A BURST AND A FIRST DOWN INSIDE GREEN BAY TERRITORY. GAIN OF 9.>>YOU KNOW, THAT’S THE AREA OF THIS ARIZONA TEAM WHERE THEY HAVE REALLY IMPROVED FROM WHERE THEY WERE A YEAR AGO. OF COURSE, THE POSTSEASON PLAY LAST YEAR AND THAT RUN TO THE SUPER BOWL, THEY RAN THE BALL BETTER THAN THEY HAD DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. AND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE PROBABLY FAMILIAR — TODD HALEY, WHO’S NOW THE HEAD COACH IN KANSAS CITY, WAS THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR. KEN WHISENHUNT TOOK OVER PLAY CALLING THIS YEAR AND PUT MUCH MORE EMPHASIS ON BEING ABLE TO RUN THE FOOTBALL. AND IN THE LAST 7, 8 GAMES, THEY’VE BEEN VERY GOOD AT THAT.>>ALREADY RUN IT FOR 67 YARDS IN THIS GAME. HESITATION BY WELLS. AND HE TURNS THAT INTO A NICE GAIN OF 5 YARDS. BEANIE WELLS, AS YOU MENTIONED, TROY, HAS BEEN COMING ON SINCE THE 1st OF NOVEMBER. AND, TYPICALLY, ROOKIES WILL TIRE OUT IN THE COURSE OF THIS LONG SEASON. HE’S BEEN AVERAGING 4.7 YARDS PER CARRY, AND, IN GENERAL, THE NUMBERS ARE BETTER. AVERAGING 115 RUSH YARDS A GAME FOR THIS TEAM OVER THEIR LAST NINE. ONLY 65 RUSH YARDS PER GAME IN THEIR FIRST SEVEN. SECOND AND 5. LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING GETS IT. FIRST DOWN, ARIZONA, AND MORE. INSIDE THE 30, TO THE 25. AND A PENALTY FLAG COMES IN. 18-YARD CARRY BY LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING, WHO SPENT HIS LAST TWO YEARS AT PITT BACKING UP LeSEAN McCOY, THE ROOKIE FOR PHILLY.>>PERSONAL FOUL, GRABBING THE FACE MASK — NUMBER 20, DEFENSE. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>WELL, ARIZONA DOES A NICE JOB. THEY GO THREE WIDE RECEIVER AND THEY PUT STEPHENS HOWLING, THEN, IN THE BACKFIELD BEHIND JASON WRIGHT. AT THE END OF THAT IS WHERE THEY GET THE FACE MASK ON THIS. ATARI BIGBY RIGHT THERE WITH HIS LEFT HAND. EASY CALL. BUT HE HAS HAD A NICE ROOKIE SEASON, AS WELL. IN FACT, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS REALLY HELPED ARIZONA — SOME OF THESE YOUNG PLAYERS. YOU GO BACK TO WHEN KEN WHISENHUNT TOOK OVER, AND THEY’VE GOT SOME GOOD YOUNG PLAYERS THAT THEY FEEL AWFULLY GOOD ABOUT AND HIM BEING ONE OF THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE EARLY THIS YEAR.>>HE’S ON THIS TEAM BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DOES ON SPECIAL TEAMS. AND HERE’S A HIT ON BEANIE WELLS BY NICK COLLINS. LOSS OF 3. UNDER 3 MINUTES TO PLAY IN THIS FIRST HALF. AND ARIZONA TRYING TO ANSWER THE GREEN BAY PACKERS’ TOUCHDOWN WITH POINTS OF THEIR OWN, AS THEY LEAD IT BY 10. THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME THAT ARIZONA’S BEEN INSIDE THE RED ZONE IN FIVE POSSESSIONS. AND THEY HAVE BEEN PLAYING ON THE GREEN BAY SIDE OF MIDFIELD MOST OF THIS HALF. ON SECOND DOWN, WARNER THROWS IT. PASS IS CAUGHT. THAT’S DOUCET! HIS SECOND OF THE DAY!>>YOU’RE GONNA SEE IT STARTS WITH THE PROTECTION UP FRONT. GREEN BAY BRINGS FOUR. AND THEY DO A GOOD JOB GIVING KURT WARNER SOME TIME. YOU SEE THE LITTLE BIT OF A STUTTER MOVE THERE BY EARLY DOUCET. AND THEN JUST POOR TACKLING ON THE BACK END. HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THE TACKLE AS SOON AS HE MAKES THE CATCH. I DON’T THINK KURT WARNER’S GONNA BE YELLING AT HIM THIS TIME ON THE SIDELINE.>>EARLY DOUCET DID NOT HAVE A TOUCHDOWN IN HIS ROOKIE SEASON. HE GOT ONE LATE IN THE REGULAR SEASON. FOR KURT WARNER, 9th TIME IN 12-CAREER POSTSEASON GAMES HE’S HAD MORE THAN ONE TOUCHDOWN PASS. TWO TO EARLY DOUCET. THE GUY WITH THE SECOND-BEST ALL-TIME QUARTERBACK RATING IN THE PLAYOFFS, KURT WARNER HAS GUIDED HIS TEAM UP AND DOWN THE FIELD HERE IN THIS FIRST HALF. BACK TO A 17-POINT GAME. GREEN BAY WITH 2:16 LEFT AND ALL THREE OF THEIR TIME-OUTS. TRY AND GET SOMETHING DONE BEFORE HALFTIME. RACKERS HITS IT. JORDY NELSON WILL TAKE IT OUT. CROSSES THE 20 AND LOST THE FOOTBALL! [ WHISTLES BLOWING ] A FUMBLE BY JORDY NELSON. AND THERE’S NO TELLING WHO HAS THE BALL AT THE BOTTOM OF THAT PILE. AND GREEN BAY WILL KEEP THE FOOTBALL. THAT’S GIORDANO AT THE BOTTOM OF THAT PILE, AND HE’S INJURED. [ WHISTLE BLOWS ] QUICK THROW BY RODGERS. COMPLETES IT TO JENNINGS. AND HE’S OUT OF BOUNDS WITH 2:03. NOW THEY’RE GONNA GIVE HIM FORWARD PROGRESS, SO THE CLOCK WINDS TO THE 2-MINUTE WARNING. AARON RODGERS — FIRST QUARTERBACK, NFL HISTORY, IN HIS FIRST TWO YEARS, TO THROW FOR OVER 4,000 YARDS IN EACH SEASON. HE’S 5 FOR 9 FOR 38 WITH AN INTERCEPTION. SECOND AND 5. RODGERS THROWS OVER THE MIDDLE. AND IT’S DROPPED. JAMES JONES WAS WIDE OPEN AND STARTED TO RUN BEFORE HE MADE THE CATCH. AND IT’S THIRD AND 5.>>YEAH, IT’S SNOWBALLING ON THEM A LITTLE BIT HERE. AND, YOU KNOW, GREEN BAY COMES INTO THIS GAME AS THE SIXTH-RANKED OFFENSE IN FOOTBALL, AND THEY’VE NOT DONE A GOOD JOB. PART OF THAT BEING WITH THE TURNOVERS THEY HAD. AND YOU SEE JAMES JONES. HE SLIPS COMING OUT OF IT, AND AARON RODGERS HAD TO HOLD ON TO THE BALL A LITTLE BIT LONGER THAN WHAT HE WANTED TO. BUT, CLEARLY, JAMES JONES SHOULD HAVE MADE THE CATCH, AND IF HE DOES, THEY’VE GOT A FIRST DOWN.>>IT’S THIRD DOWN AND 5. RODGERS… AVOIDS A SACK AND NOW AIRS IT OUT DOWNFIELD, HOPING FOR A PLAY. AND IT’S FINLEY WITH A CATCH. AND A FLAG COMES IN WITH McFADDEN ON HIM. FINLEY WAS COVERED, AND RODGERS THREW IT TO HIM, ANYWAY, BECAUSE OF THE SIZE ADVANTAGE OF JERMICHAEL FINLEY, AND HE MADE THE PLAY.>>YEAH, WELL, THEY BROUGHT MICHAEL ADAMS OFF THE EDGE, AND THAT’S WHO AARON RODGERS INITIALLY DUCKS. I’M NOT SURE MICHAEL AD– I DON’T KNOW HOW HE MISSED HIM.>>…DEFENSE, NUMBER 25. PENALTY IS DECLINED. FIRST DOWN.>>YOU SEE MICHAEL ADAMS COMING OFF THE EDGE, AND AARON RODGERS ACTED AS IF HE DIDN’T EVEN SEE HIM TILL THE LAST MINUTE. BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW MICHAEL ADAMS JUST RUNS RIGHT BY HIM AND DOESN’T HIT HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD, YOU KNOW, AND MAKE THE SACK. AND AARON, AFTER HE AVOIDS IT — HE JUST THROWS IT UP IN THE AIR. GOOD COVERAGE THERE. HE JUST THOUGHT HE WOULD GIVE HIS BIG GUY A CHANCE, AND A GOOD CATCH. OF COURSE, THEY HAD THE PASS INTERFERENCE TO GO WITH IT.>>44 YARDS ON THIRD AND 5. AND NOW A BLITZ FROM ARIZONA. THE PASS CAUGHT OVER THE MIDDLE. THAT’S FINLEY AGAIN. AND FINLEY WILL TAKE IT DOWN INCHES INSIDE THE 10, WHERE IT’LL SET UP FIRST AND GOAL WITH THE CLOCK RUNNING AT UNDER A MINUTE AND A HALF.>>TAKE ANOTHER LOOK HERE AT MICHAEL ADAMS COMING OFF THE EDGE. AND, YOU KNOW, HOW HE — HE JUST GOT IN THE AIR, I GUESS EXPECTING AARON RODGERS TO THROW IT, INSTEAD OF COMING IN AND TRYING TO MAKE THE SACK. THAT’S A HECK OF A CATCH RIGHT THERE BY A GUY WHO HAS HAD A HECK OF A YEAR.>>6’5″, 247 POUNDS. JERMICHAEL FINLEY A WEAPON IN THIS AREA OF THE FIELD, AS WELL. TECHNICAL PROBLEM. AND NOW A TIME-OUT. WE GET THE PICTURE BACK, AND AARON RODGERS…>>TIME-OUT, GREEN BAY.>>AS THE GREEN BAY PACKERS TRAIL BY 17. ON FIRST AND GOAL, IT’S JACKSON BACK TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. TWO TIME-OUTS LEFT. CLOCK CONTINUES TO WIND.>>WELL, I THINK, YOU KNOW, TALKING ABOUT AARON RODGERS AND COMING INTO THIS GAME, WHEN YOU GET OFF TO THE START THAT HE DID AND THE FIRST THROW OF THE GAME BEING INTERCEPTED, YOU FIND YOURSELF CONSTANTLY TRYING TO DIG OUT FROM THE HOLE. BUT IT DOES APPEAR THAT HE’S STARTING TO SETTLE IN AND STARTING TO THROW THE BALL THE WAY THAT HE HAD THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE YEAR.>>QUICK THROW. AND THAT’S JENNINGS OUT ON THE EDGE. AND GREEN BAY WILL HAVE TO SPEND A TIME-OUT NOW INSIDE THE 5 BUT LET THE CLOCK GET ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 14 SECONDS LEFT IN THE HALF.>>THIS IS HUGE RIGHT NOW FOR THE GREEN BAY PACKERS AND A REAL MOMENTUM-BUILDER, IF THEY’RE ABLE TO COME AWAY, WITH THIS DRIVE, WITH A TOUCHDOWN.>>THIRD DOWN AND GOAL. RODGERS BUYS TIME… WILL TRY TO RUN. AND HE IS DRAGGED DOWN. NO FLAG. AND DOCKETT MADE THE PLAY WITH 4 SECONDS REMAINING. AND IT’S FOURTH DOWN.>>THAT’S A GOOD JOB BY ARIZONA, DEFENSIVELY. WE GOT A FLAG ON THE GROUND.>>THEY DID THROW THE FLAG, AND, TROY, THAT COULD BE FOR ANOTHER HORSE COLLAR.>>PERSONAL FOUL, HORSE-COLLAR TACKLE — NUMBER 90. HALF THE DISTANCE TO THE GOAL. FIRST DOWN.>>GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS AND SEE IF IT WAS, IN FACT, HORSE COLLAR. AND THAT IS IT THERE. YOU CAN SEE THAT AARON RODGERS IS COMING BACKWARDS. HERE’S DONALD DRIVER. THEY’RE PLAYING IN-AND-OUT COVERAGE ON HIM, A BRACKET COVERAGE. AND THAT’S WHERE AARON RODGERS WAS WANTING TO GO WITH THE FOOTBALL, JUST COULDN’T FIND ANYWHERE TO GO WITH IT. BUT DARNELL DOCKETT CAME IN AND IS ABLE TO GET HIS HANDS ON HIM. AND I THINK THAT WAS A PRETTY GOOD CALL BY THE OFFICIAL.>>I TALKED ABOUT THEM MANAGING THE CLOCK AND LETTING IT WIND DOWN. THE ONE THING THEY DIDN’T ACCOUNT FOR WAS A DEFENSIVE PENALTY, AND NOW, WITH ONLY 4 SECONDS LEFT, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE A TIME-OUT LEFT, GREEN BAY’S GONNA LINE UP FOR THE FIELD GOAL AND NOT GET A SHOT INTO THE END ZONE.>>WELL, THEY’RE GONNA TRY TO MAKE THIS A TWO-POSSESSION GAME. I KNOW YOU COULD ARGUE WITH THIS, BUT I THINK IT’S PROBABLY THE RIGHT DECISION.>>CROSBY KNOCKS IN A CHIP SHOT. AND THE HALF IS OVER AT 24-10, ARIZONA. FOR ARIZONA, OFFENSIVELY, THEY HAVE TO BE THRILLED WITH WHAT THEY ACCOMPLISHED IN THE FIRST HALF. AND MAYBE THE THOUGHT OF ARIZONA GETTING THE BALL BACK WITH ANY TIME ON THE CLOCK IS WHAT LED GREEN BAY TO LET THE GAME CLOCK WIND DOWN, WHICH, AFTER THE DEFENSIVE PENALTY, DIDN’T ALLOW THEM A CHANCE TO TAKE A SHOT INTO THE END ZONE. INSTEAD, 3 POINTS. WE’LL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT IN A MOMENT. RIGHT NOW, WE GO DOWN TO THE FIELD AND PAM OLIVER.>>WELL, JOE, THE PACKERS ARE HOPING THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO BUILD ON, THE WAY THAT HALF ENDED, AS TROY NOTED. MIKE McCARTHY TOLD ME, “ALL WE DID THIS WEEK WAS FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS — HOW YOU TACKLE, HOW YOU EXECUTE, HOW YOU TAKE CARE OF THE BALL.” HE SAID, “WE DIDN’T DO A VERY GOOD JOB OF THAT IN THE FIRST HALF. WE GOT OFF TO A ROUGH START.” BUT HE EMPHASIZED IT AGAIN AT THE HALF. HE SAID, “IT IS TOO HARD TO COME HERE AND WIN IF YOU’RE NOT PLAYING FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND.” BACK TO YOU.>>ALL RIGHT, PAM. AND WE’LL SEE WHAT THE GREEN BAY DEFENSE HAS FIGURED OUT AT THE HALF, IF ANYTHING. KURT WARNER WAS ALMOST FLAWLESS. HAND-OFF IS TO HIGHTOWER. HIGHTOWER PICKS UP 7. WE GO DOWN TO CHRIS MYERS.>>JOE, KEN WHISENHUNT SAID IF HIS TEAM HAS ANY PROBLEM MAINTAINING A HIGH LEVEL OF INTENSITY, HE REMINDED THEM ABOUT LAST WEEK, WHEN GREEN BAY WHIPPED ARIZONA AND THEN TALKED A LOT ABOUT IT. HE SAID, DEFENSIVELY, THEY’LL COME AFTER AARON RODGERS LIKE THEY HAVE, FROM ALL OVER EVERYWHERE. BUT THEY DON’T WANT TO GIVE UP THE QUICK STRIKE. OFFENSIVELY, FROM LAST WEEK, HE AND KURT WARNER SAW SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD AGAINST THE GREEN BAY DEFENSE. IT’S WORKED SO FAR. HE SAID THEY WOULD CONTINUE TO ATTACK THAT IN THE SECOND HALF.>>ALL RIGHT, CHRIS. WELL, LAST WEEK IN THAT GAME — A 33-7 WIN BY GREEN BAY — WARNER ONLY PLAYED TWO SERIES, OFFENSIVELY. HE COMPLETES THE PASS FOR A FIRST DOWN. AND IT’S DOUCET, WHO HAS STEPPED UP AND PLAYED A VERY GOOD GAME FOR ARIZONA. A GAIN OF 8.>>AND KURT WARNER — HE — THE PACKERS, ANYWAY, ARE STARTING TO GET A LITTLE BIT MORE PRESSURE ON KURT WARNER IN THE POCKET, AND HE’S STARTING TO FEEL IT. OF COURSE, HE HAD ENOUGH TIME. THEY RUN A CROSSING ROUTE HERE WITH EARLY DOUCET, AND HE JUST GETS PAST BUSH. OUTRUNS HIM THERE TO THE SIDELINE ON THE CROSSING ROUTE FOR THE FIRST DOWN. BUT, YOU KNOW, THAT’S GONNA BODE PRETTY WELL FOR GREEN BAY IF THEY’RE ABLE TO GET MORE PRESSURE ON KURT AS THIS SECOND HALF UNFOLDS.>>QUICK SNAP. HAND-OFF IS TO BEANIE WELLS. AND WELLS, OVER THE RIGHT SIDE, GETS 3. BEANIE WELLS, A ROOKIE, A YOUNG PLAYER OUT OF OHIO STATE, FIRST-ROUND PICK. HE AND TIM HIGHTOWER, FOR THE MOST PART, SPLIT THE DUTIES AT RUNNING BACK. MEANWHILE, FOR GREEN BAY, YOU SAW JARRETT BUSH COVERING DOUCET ON THAT CONVERSION FOR A FIRST DOWN. THIS IS A GREEN BAY DEFENSE THAT’S LOST THREE CORNERS — AL HARRIS, PAT LEE, AND WILL BLACKMON. SO THE DEPTH HAS BEEN TESTED. SECOND DOWN AND 7. A BLITZ. CARDINALS PICK IT UP. AND THAT’S LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING. [ WHISTLE BLOWS ] AND CLAY MATTHEWS MAKES THE PLAY. HOWLING HAS A FIRST DOWN ALL THE WAY OUT JUST SHY OF MIDFIELD, AS STEPHENS HOWLING HAS BEEN A PART OF THE OFFENSE TODAY FOR ARIZONA.>>WELL, THE PACKERS TRY BRINGING PRESSURE, AND THE PACKERS DO A GOOD JOB OF PICKING IT UP INSIDE. TIM HIGHTOWER EXCELLENT IN PASS PROTECTION. AND, YOU KNOW, THEY MOTION STEPHENS HOWLING OUTSIDE AND THEN THEY RUN HIM ON SOMEWHAT OF A POST ROUTE, A QUICK POST ROUTE. AND KURT WARNER FITS THAT BALL IN THERE JUST PERFECTLY.>>GOT IT JUST PAST THE OUTSTRETCHED HAND OF CHARLES WOODSON. TOSS TO HIGHTOWER. LEFT SIDE. A.J. HAWK OVERRUNS IT. MATTHEWS MAKES THE TACKLE. A GAIN OF 9.>>YEAH, IT’S A LITTLE BIT OF A CONCERN RIGHT NOW. I THINK A LOT OF THE FOCUS HAS BEEN ON THE START, OFFENSIVELY, FOR THE GREEN BAY PACKERS, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED DURING THAT FIRST HALF, DEFENSIVELY, THEY DID NOT STOP THE ARIZONA CARDINALS, THE PACKERS DID NOT, OTHER THAN THE ONE FUMBLE RECOVERY THAT THEY GOT FROM LARRY FITZGERALD. OUTSIDE OF THAT, THEY MOVED THE BALL AND SCORED POINTS ON EVERY POSSESSION.>>ARIZONA’S RUN IT FOR OVER 100 YARDS IN THE GAME. SECOND AND 1. PLAY-ACTION FROM WARNER, WHO HAS ALL DAY AND NOW SCRAMBLES. DROPS IT OFF. AND IT’S INCOMPLETE, BUT A FLAG COMES IN. FITZGERALD THE INTENDED RECEIVER, AND WOODSON WAS ON HIM.>>INTERFERENCE — DEFENSE, NUMBER 21. BALL WILL BE PLACED AT THE SPOT OF THE FOUL. FIRST DOWN.>>THEY’RE TRYING TO GET A DEEP BALL DOWN THE FIELD TO BREASTON. HE HAS TO COME UNDERNEATH. YOU SEE THERE, A PUSH IN THE BACK. THAT’S A GOOD CALL.>>GREEN BAY — THEY WERE THE MOST PENALIZED TEAM IN THE NFL — SOMETHING THAT CAN BE CRIPPLING TO GOOD TEAMS. THEY DIDN’T TURN IT OVER DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, TOOK IT AWAY A LOT. THEY’VE TURNED IT OVER TWICE, TAKEN IT AWAY ONLY ONCE IN THIS GAME. AS WARNER… BUYS TIME AND HITS FITZGERALD. WOODSON HAD FALLEN, AND FITZGERALD HAS A TOUCHDOWN.>>YEAH, THERE’S CONTACT AT THE TOP OF THIS ROUTE. YOU’VE GOT CHARLES WOODSON ON LARRY FITZGERALD. RIGHT HERE, THEY GET TANGLED UP. I THINK IT WAS A GOOD NON-CALL. YOU SAW THE FEET GET TANGLED UP AT THE TOP OF THAT WHEN LARRY FITZGERALD WENT TO GO TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. AND SO JUST AN EASY CATCH. NOBODY, THEN, IN THE SECONDARY — MAN COVERAGE — IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THE PLAY.>>WELL, FITZGERALD WAS UNSTOPPABLE LAST YEAR DURING THE PLAYOFFS. HE SET RECORDS WITH 30 CATCHES, 546 YARDS, SEVEN TOUCHDOWNS. AND HE GETS HIS FIRST OF THIS POSTSEASON. HIS DEFENDER, WOODSON, HAD FALLEN, AND FITZGERALD TOOK IT IN UNTOUCHED. 33 YARDS. AND FOR LARRY, 42 TOUCHDOWN CATCHES IN HIS LAST 44 GAMES.>>THAT WAS THE LONGEST RECEPTION HE’S HAD IN THE LAST FIVE WEEKS.>>AND IT’S 31-10. ARIZONA WILL KICK IT AWAY. DOUCET HAS TWO. HIGHTOWER HAS A RUSHING TOUCHDOWN. LARRY FITZGERALD HAS ONE. RACKERS HAS A FIELD GOAL. IT’S 31-10. TRAMON WILLIAMS HAS TAKEN OVER THE KICK-RETURN DUTIES IN PLACE OF JORDY NELSON. AND HE WILL TAKE A KNEE. THIS YEAR, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS’ OFFENSE BECAME THE FIRST TEAM IN NFL HISTORY TO HAVE CONSECUTIVE SEASONS WITH A 4,000-YARD QUARTERBACK, A 1,200-YARD RUSHER, TWO 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS. AND ALL THAT OFFENSIVE TALENT NEEDS TO SHOW ITSELF WITH THE PACKERS DOWN BY 21. RODGERS, A QUICK SETUP AND THROW. AND HE THROWS BEHIND JENNINGS, WHO CAN’T MAKE THE CATCH. AND BACK TO THE TOUCHDOWN TO FITZGERALD.>>WELL, YOU’RE GONNA SEE STEVE BREASTON IN THE SLOT. HE’S GONNA GO HERE TO THE POST. AND THEY’RE IN MAN COVERAGE, AND THAT EVENTUALLY IS GONNA PULL THE SAFETY, ATARI BIGBY, OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. YOU’LL SEE ATARI BIGBY IS RIGHT BACK HERE. HE’S GONNA ROTATE TO THE MIDDLE AND THEN HE’S GONNA GO WITH STEVE BREASTON ALL THE WAY ACROSS, WHICH IS WHY, THEN, THE INCIDENTAL CONTACT AT THE TOP OF THAT ROUTE WITH LARRY FITZGERALD — THERE’S NOBODY, THEN, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD TO HELP OUT AND TRY TO MAKE A TACKLE.>>SECOND AND 10, GREEN BAY. ANOTHER QUICK SETUP AND THROW. AND THIS ONE OUT OF THE REACH OF JERMICHAEL FINLEY. THERE HAVE BEEN A COUPLE OF FLASHES FOR THE GREEN BAY OFFENSE, BUT, FOR THE MOST PART, IT’S BEEN A BIG DAY FOR THE ARIZONA OFFENSE AND VERY IMPRESSIVE FOR THIS ARIZONA DEFENSE, WHICH FINISHED THE YEAR RANKED 20th IN THE NFL, AVERAGING ALLOWING JUST UNDER 350 YARDS PER GAME.>>YEAH, I DON’T KNOW THAT THIS DEFENSE REALLY HAS GOTTEN MUCH CREDIT. BILL DAVIS, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, CERTAINLY HAS NOT. AS I SAID EARLIER, THEY’RE A MUCH BETTER DEFENSE THAN WHAT THE NUMBERS WOULD INDICATE.>>THIRD DOWN AND 10. RODGERS STEPS UP AND COMPLETES FOR A FIRST DOWN. THERE’S FINLEY AGAIN.>>IT’S A GOOD JOB THERE OF CONVERTING ON THIRD DOWN. THE CARDINALS COME OUT WITH SEVEN DEFENSIVE BACKS TO TRY TO MATCH UP, KNOWING THAT THE CARDINALS — OR EXCUSE ME — KNOWING THAT THE PACKERS ARE SPREADING THEM OUT AND TRYING TO CREATE SOME MATCHUP PROBLEMS. BUT THEY FIND JERMICHAEL FINLEY, THEN, FOR THE FIRST DOWN. I THINK THAT — YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS GAME RIGHT NOW, YES, THE PACKERS, OFFENSIVELY, HAVE BEEN INCONSISTENT, UP AND DOWN, BUT THE ONE THING THAT THEY THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO RELY ON IS THEIR DEFENSE BEING ABLE TO SLOW DOWN THIS OFFENSE OF THE CARDINALS, AND THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED.>>RODGERS FLOATS IT FOR DRIVER. OUT OF HIS REACH. SECOND AND 10. THEY DO HAND OFF. SLOW-DEVELOPING PLAY. RYAN GRANT, A GAIN OF ONLY 2. THIRD AND 8 COMING UP.>>WELL, AND THAT’S BEEN ONE OF THE TOUGH THINGS. AND WHEN YOU’RE DOWN 21 POINTS, RYAN GRANT — THAT JUST BEING HIS SEVENTH CARRY OF THIS GAME. WHEN HE HAD GOTTEN HIS OPPORTUNITIES, HE HAD ACTUALLY DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF RUNNING THE BALL, BUT BECAUSE THEY’RE NOW IN PASSING MODE, SPREAD HIM OUT, PUT HIM IN THE BACKFIELD, BUT THAT’S REALLY ALL YOU CAN DO WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT RUNNING THE BALL FROM THE SHOTGUN FORMATION. THE PACKERS ARE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE WITH AARON RODGERS UNDER THE CENTER AND RUNNING FROM THAT.>>THIRD DOWN AND 8. AND THAT, OVER THE MIDDLE, WILL DRAW A FLAG. THAT’S MICHAEL ADAMS AGAIN, AND, THIS TIME, HE’S ON DONALD DRIVER, WHO HAS ONLY ONE CATCH IN THE GAME, AND THAT BALL HE FUMBLED. THAT WAS EARLY.>>WELL, MICHAEL ADAMS — AND THAT’S TOUGH DUTY FOR HIM RIGHT THERE.>>…DEFENSE, NUMBER 27. BALL WILL BE PLACED SPOT OF THE FOUL. FIRST DOWN.>>WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT PUTTING A THIRD-YEAR GUY, YOU KNOW, IN THERE ON ONE OF THE REAL VETERAN WIDE RECEIVERS IN THIS LEAGUE, THAT’S A MISMATCH. IT’S A GOOD JOB OF AARON RODGERS RECOGNIZING WHO HE HAD ON DONALD DRIVER AND THEN GOING RIGHT TO HIM.>>SO, A FIRST DOWN BY PENALTY ON THIRD DOWN. AND THIS ONE FOR DRIVER. HAS A LITTLE ROOM TO RUN. AND DOWN THE SIDELINE, HE HAS A FIRST DOWN AT THE ARIZONA 38. 13 YARDS FOR DONALD DRIVER.>>I THINK GREEN BAY — YOU KNOW, I MEAN, THEY’RE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB. I MEAN, NOT TO DWELL ON HOW THIS GAME BEGAN, BUT ONCE THEY GOT SETTLED IN, THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO CREATE SOME THINGS AND MOVE THE FOOTBALL. AND THEY HAD THE MISSED FIELD GOAL THERE IN THE FIRST HALF, WHICH CERTAINLY HELPED. BUT THEY PUT TOGETHER A COUPLE OF GOOD DRIVES TO END THE HALF. IT WAS JUST UNFORTUNATE THAT THEY RAN OUT OF TIME THERE AND HAD TO SETTLE FOR THE FIELD GOAL WITHOUT GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO GET THE TOUCHDOWN.>>ON FIRST DOWN! THIS ONE IS TO JENNINGS. AND GREG JENNINGS STUMBLES. NOT TOUCHED, GETS UP, AND HE’S STILL GOING. THIS IS A LIVE PLAY. GETS A BLOCK. AND HE’S DOWN INSIDE THE 5. 34 YARDS FOR GREG JENNINGS AFTER INITIALLY GETTING AROUND DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE.>>WELL, THAT WAS A RISKY THROW THERE. I MEAN, IF THAT BALL HAD NOT HAVE BEEN PLACED WHERE IT WAS, DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE WAS GONNA MAKE A HECK OF A PLAY ON THIS BALL. THAT WAS OUTSIDE JUST ENOUGH. YOU SEE THAT HE GOES DOWN, JENNINGS DOES, BUT HE’S NOT TOUCHED. AND A GOOD EFFORT BY HIM GETTING MORE OUT OF IT.>>FIRST AND GOAL FROM THE 3. THAT’S KUHN, THE FULLBACK. AND OUT THERE MAKING THE PLAY, ADRIAN WILSON, THE PRO BOWLER. A LOSS OF 3. BACK TO THE JENNINGS CATCH.>>YEAH, HE’S ALREADY GOTTEN PAST RODGERS-CROMARTIE AT THIS POINT AND JUST PUTS A MOVE THERE. LOOKED LIKE RALPH BROWN MAY HAVE GOTTEN A HAND THERE ON THE RIGHT KNEE OF GREG JENNINGS. THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORTH A CHALLENGE THERE.>>AS IT IS, JENNINGS TOOK IT DOWN TO THE 3. A LOSS OF 3 ON THE COMPLETION TO KUHN. IT’S SECOND AND GOAL FROM THE 6. RODGERS, OVER THE MIDDLE. THROWS. AND IT’S DROPPED. INCOMPLETE. DONALD LEE HAD IT RIGHT INTO HIS GUT AND COULDN’T HANG ON TO IT. THIRD AND GOAL.>>I THOUGHT ARIZONA DID A GREAT JOB THERE. YOU’RE GONNA SEE RODGERS. HE STEPS UP. HE’S GONNA WANT TO HEAD TO HIS RIGHT WHEN HE ESCAPES. HE STEPS UP. HE WANTS TO GO TO HIS RIGHT. A GREAT JOB RIGHT THERE BY CHIKE OKEAFOR NOT ALLOWING HIM TO ESCAPE TO THE RIGHT AND FORCE HIM BACK DOWN INTO THE POCKET. BUT A BALL, RIGHT THERE, THAT LOOKED LIKE DONALD DRIVER SHOULD HAVE HAD. I MEAN — EXCUSE ME — DONALD LEE.>>IT’S THIRD AND GOAL. HERE’S JENNINGS! WHAT A CATCH FOR THE TOUCHDOWN! A ONE-HANDED LEFT-HANDED CATCH. AND JENNINGS IS IN FOR THE SCORE.>>WOW, WAS THAT A HECK OF A CATCH THERE. A BALL THAT — AARON RODGERS IS TRYING TO THROW THE BACK-SHOULDER FADE. AND THIS IS A MISSILE COMING OUT, AND HE HAD NO CHANCE BUT TO GET ONE HAND ON IT. AND STRONG HANDS, ABLE TO PULL THAT ONE IN. WHAT A HECK OF A CATCH BY GREG JENNINGS.>>AND HE ROLLED UNDER THE FOOTBALL, SECURED IT ALL THE WAY DOWN. AND, JUST LIKE THAT, IT’S A 14-POINT GAME. GREG JENNINGS WITH A PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT-REEL CATCH FOR THE TOUCHDOWN TO MAKE IT A 14-POINT GAME, 31-17. LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING IS WAITING FOR IT. AND IT’S AN ONSIDE KICK. GREEN BAY FALLS ON TOP OF IT. PACKERS HAVE IT. BRANDON UNDERWOOD, THE ROOKIE, COMES AWAY WITH THE FOOTBALL. AND THE CALL FROM MIKE McCARTHY, AND IT CAUGHT EVERYBODY BY SURPRISE, AT LEAST EVERYBODY IN CARDINAL RED.>>HOW GOOD WAS THAT? I MEAN, WHAT A CALL THERE BY MIKE McCARTHY. AND THE CARDINALS — YOU SEE THEM ALL. AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT THEY HAD SEEN ON OTHER KICKOFFS OR ON FILM, KNOWING THAT IF THEY GOT INTO A SITUATION AND THEY NEEDED TO COME UP WITH AN ONSIDE KICK TO GAIN ANOTHER POSSESSION, THAT THEY COULD PULL THAT OFF, BECAUSE IT WAS UNCONTESTED. A GOOD KICK, HE GOT THE BOUNCE, AND THEN BRANDON UNDERWOOD RIGHT THERE TO MAKE THE RECOVERY.>>YEAH, JUST A PERFECTLY PLACED KICK BY MASON CROSBY. AND NOW THE PACKERS, WHO ARE STARTING TO FIGURE IT OUT — 17 POINTS ON THEIR LAST THREE DRIVES. A PUMP FAKE. AND NOW THIS ONE’S THROWN AWAY IN THE DIRECTION OF FINLEY. AND RODGERS ENDS UP ON HIS BELLY. PRESSURE BY DARNELL DOCKETT.>>YEAH, DARNELL DOCKETT GOING TO HIS SECOND PRO BOWL, AND WHAT A YEAR HE HAS HAD. YOU SEE THEY’RE DOUBLING UP AND THEY’RE TRYING TO GET SOME PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE THERE TO GIVE RODGERS SOME PROTECTION. A TWIST THERE BY DARNELL DOCKETT. AND HE’S BEEN OUTSTANDING. WE HAD A CHANCE TO VISIT WITH HIM THE OTHER DAY, JOE, AND WHAT AN ENJOYABLE GUY HE IS. HE SAID HE LIKES TO TALK OUT THERE ON THE FIELD AND GET ENGAGED WITH THE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN. AND IF HE CAN’T GET THEM TALKING BACK TO HIM, THEN, HECK, HE’LL START JAWING WITH WIDE RECEIVERS, IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES.>>SECOND DOWN AND 10. HERE’S GRANT. GETS AROUND ADRIAN WILSON, BUT THEY’LL MARK GRANT OUT WITH A 9-YARD GAIN. THIRD DOWN AND 1 COMING UP.>>WELL, I LIKE WHAT GREEN BAY HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO HERE, OFFENSIVELY. YOU KNOW, THE REAL KEY — WE WERE GONNA GET INTO IT IF THEY HAD NOT RUN THE ONSIDE KICK — IS GOING TO BE WHETHER OR NOT THIS DEFENSE, A DEFENSE THAT HAS HAD A BIG PART TO DO WITH THE SUCCESS OF THIS TEAM — WHETHER OR NOT THEY’RE GONNA BE ABLE TO SLOW DOWN ARIZONA. AND THAT PROBABLY WENT AS MUCH INTO THE THINKING AND THE DECISION TO KICK THE ONSIDE KICK AS ANYTHING.>>THIRD DOWN AND 1. RODGERS THROWS FOR HAVNER. AND HE DROPS IT. NOW IT’S FOURTH DOWN, AND WE’LL SEE IF GREEN BAY WILL STAY AGGRESSIVE AND GO FOR IT. AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL.>>YEAH, YOU KNOW, AND IT LOOKED LIKE HAVNER MIGHT HAVE BEEN A LITTLE DEEP ON THAT ROUTE. YOU KNOW, A BALL THAT HE CERTAINLY COULD HAVE CAUGHT. GOT A LITTLE DEEP, I THOUGHT, FOR A THIRD-AND-1 PASS PLAY, BUT, YOU KNOW, YEAH, I UNDERSTAND WHAT MIKE McCARTHY’S DOING HERE. DIDN’T WANT TO WASTE AN ONSIDE KICK AND A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY, BUT THEY’RE GIVING THE BALL TO ARIZONA IN GREAT FIELD POSITION IF THEY FAIL TO MAKE THIS ONE.>>AHMAN GREEN WILL CARRY IT FOR THE FIRST DOWN. THE PACKERS’ ALL-TIME LEADING RUSHER. INSIDE THE 45, AND THE DRIVE CONTINUES, AS GREEN GETS 4.>>YOU’RE GONNA SEE THE FULLBACK, JOHN KUHN, AND THE JOB THAT HE DOES IN ALLOWING AHMAN GREEN TO GET RIGHT IN OFF OF THAT BLOCK. JUST GREAT EXECUTION RIGHT THERE. LEAD BLOCK OFF TACKLE. JOHN KUHN COMES IN THERE AND CLEANS OUT THE LINEBACKER AND PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN.>>FROM THE SHOTGUN, RODGERS THROWS… AND COMPLETES. THAT’S FINLEY. NEEDING A BLOCK FROM DRIVER. AND THEY MAY CALL A HOLD ON DONALD DRIVER. RIGHT AROUND THE 10-YARD LINE, DRIVER WAS ENGAGED WITH DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE, AND THAT’S WHERE THE FLAG CAME IN.>>YOU KNOW, JERMICHAEL FINLEY IS ATTRACTING A LOT OF ATTENTION. THIS TIME, THEY HAD SAFETY ADRIAN WILSON ON HIM. THEY’VE BEEN MIXING UP COVERAGE.>>HOLDING — OFFENSE, NUMBER 80. 10-YARD PENALTY FROM THE SPOT OF THE FOUL. FIRST DOWN.>>YOU KNOW, A PERFECTLY THROWN BALL. WILSON TRIES COMING UNDERNEATH TO MAKE A PLAY ON THE BALL AND WHEN HE DOES THAT, HE THEN IS UNABLE TO MAKE THE TACKLE. AND THEN HERE’S THE END OF THAT WITH DONALD DRIVER.>>THAT DREW THE FLAG. THE PACKERS — IT’S FROM THE SPOT OF THE FOUL. SO, TYPICALLY, A HOLDING CALL CAN BE CRIPPLING. THIS JUST TAKES IT OUT TO THE 21. FIRST AND 10 FOR GREEN BAY, DOWN BY 14.>>AND THEY NEED TO HURRY UP RIGHT NOW. THIS PLAY CLOCK WINDING DOWN. BUT THE CARDINALS NEED TO COME UP WITH AN ANSWER FOR FINLEY.>>HAND-OFF IS TO GRANT. PUTS HIS HEAD DOWN, TAKES IT TO THE 14-YARD LINE. GERALD HAYES ON THE TACKLE. A GAIN OF 7. AND THE MOMENTUM HAS COMPLETELY SWITCHED HERE OVER THE LAST 5, 6 MINUTES.>>YEAH, AND IF THEY’RE ABLE, THEN — YOU KNOW, RIGHT NOW, WITH, OBVIOUSLY, 5 MINUTES LEFT TO GO HERE IN THE THIRD QUARTER AND THEN THE ENTIRE FOURTH QUARTER, YOU KNOW, THEY GET A SCORE HERE — THEY’RE LOOKING AT AT LEAST A FIELD GOAL — BUT THEY’RE ABLE TO GO BACK TO KIND OF WHAT THEY’RE COMFORTABLE DOING, AND THAT’S MIXING THINGS UP. YEAH, THEY THROW THE BALL AWFULLY WELL. YOU MENTIONED IT — TWO 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS. BUT THEY ALSO HAVE A 1,200-YARD RUNNER THAT THEY’D LIKE TO HAVE MORE INVOLVED THAN HE’S BEEN.>>HE GETS IT AGAIN, ON SECOND AND 3. AND HE PICKS UP THE FIRST DOWN. RYAN GRANT BROUGHT DOWN BY DARNELL DOCKETT. AND, FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE 10, IT WILL BE FIRST DOWN, GREEN BAY. SO FAR IN THIS GAME — AS GRANT GETS 4 — PACKERS ARE 2 FOR 3 IN THE RED ZONE IN GETTING IT INTO THE END ZONE.>>AND THE ARIZONA CARDINALS — THEY’RE SHUFFLING A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THERE RIGHT NOW ALONG THAT DEFENSIVE FRONT. REMEMBER, THIS IS THEIR SECOND DEFENSIVE POSSESSION. LONG POSSESSIONS. THOSE BIG GUYS UP FRONT ARE WEARING DOWN.>>RODGERS IN TROUBLE, BUYS TIME. THROWS ON THE RUN FOR JORDY NELSON FOR THE TOUCHDOWN! THAT’S WHERE AARON RODGERS IS SO GOOD — SCRAMBLING TO HIS RIGHT, USING HIS LEGS, BUT NOT TO RUN, TO FIND SOME OPEN SPACE TO THROW. AND HE GETS A TOUCHDOWN.>>YEAH, PRESSURE RIGHT OFF THE EDGE WITH THE DEFENSIVE BACKS MICHAEL ADAMS AND ADRIAN WILSON. ADRIAN WILSON, TO HIS FRONT SIDE, IS THE ONE THAT MISSES. AND AARON RODGERS GETS OUT ON THE OUTSIDE. AND THAT’S A GOOD JOB. GOOD POCKET AWARENESS RIGHT THERE BY RODGERS.>>IT’S ALSO A GOOD GAME. IT JUST TURNED INTO ONE. SEVEN POINTS IS THE DIFFERENCE. JORDY NELSON GETS THE TOUCHDOWN. NOW ARIZONA — IN THE CATEGORY OF “TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE,” THEY HAVE SOME OF THEIR HANDS PLAYERS UP ON THE FRONT LINE OF THEIR KICK-RETURN TEAM. CROSBY KICKS IT DEEP. NO SURPRISE. AND LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING ON THE RETURN. CROSBY IN ON THE TACKLE. 17-0, ARIZONA, EARLY. 31-24, ARIZONA, WITH 4:01 LEFT IN THE THIRD QUARTER. PASS COMPLETE. THAT’S DOUCET. WHAT A GAME HE’S HAD. FIRST DOWN OUT TO THE 42-YARD LINE. 15 YARDS FOR EARLY DOUCET.>>WE TALKED ABOUT IT JUST A MOMENT AGO, AND, YOU KNOW, GREEN BAY, AT THIS POINT, NOW NEEDING TO SHOW THAT THEY CAN MAKE A STOP. THEY REALLY HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO SHOW THAT THROUGHOUT THIS GAME. AND THEY’RE A GROUP THAT, RIGHT NOW — IF NOTHING ELSE, THEY SHOULD BE WELL-RESTED. YOU KNOW, THEY’VE BEEN ON THE SIDELINES NOW FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF POSSESSIONS, HAVING GOTTEN THE ONSIDE KICK. BUT KURT WARNER’S JUST PICKING THEM APART.>>HAND-OFF TO BEANIE WELLS. HAS THE EDGE. AND THE ROOKIE WITH A BIG RUN! OUT OF BOUNDS INSIDE THE 20. THEY’LL MARK HIM AT THE 16. AND A 42-YARD RUN FOR BEANIE WELLS.>>WELL, AND THE FULLBACK, DAN KREIDER, DOES A NICE JOB. YOU’RE GONNA SEE HIM SEAL THE EDGE, WHICH IS WHY BEANIE WELLS, THEN, HAS CLEAR SAILING UP THAT RIGHT SIDE. AND THEN, OF COURSE, GOOD BLOCKING DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE, AS WELL, BY WIDE RECEIVER STEVE BREASTON. YOU SEE HIM ON TRAMON WILLIAMS.>>NOW ARIZONA SNAPS IT. GREEN BAY WAS MAKING SUBSTITUTIONS. THEY COULDN’T GET PLAYERS OFF THE FIELD. DOUCET MAKES THE CATCH. FLAGS ARE DOWN. AND GREEN BAY HAD ABOUT 14 PLAYERS ON THE FIELD AT THE SNAP. SO, A 42-YARDER FROM BEANIE WELLS. IT’S HIS LONGEST IN THE NFL.>>WELL, IT’S EASY TO GET THOSE KIND OF RUNS WHEN NOBODY TOUCHES YOU. YOU KNOW, I MEAN, HE WAS WELL DOWN THE FIELD BEFORE ANYBODY EVEN GOT A HAND ON HIM.>>12 MEN ON DEFENSE. 5-YARD PENALTY FROM THE PREVIOUS SPOT. FIRST DOWN.>>HERE’S THAT 42-YARDER BY BEANIE WELLS, WHICH SET UP THIS OPPORTUNITY.>>YEAH, HERE IT IS ON THE OUTSIDE. AND JUST A GOOD JOB, BECAUSE BEANIE WELLS THEN ABLE — HE DOES A NICE JOB, BEANIE WELLS DOES, YOU KNOW, REALLY HELPING STEVE BREASTON WITH THAT BLOCK. STARTS TO THE BOUNDARY, AND THEN ONCE TRAMON WILLIAMS OVERCOMMITTED, HE COMES OFF OF THE BLOCK INSIDE. STEVE BREASTON GETTING HIS OPPORTUNITY TO BE THE NUMBER-TWO RECEIVER TODAY, AGAIN, BECAUSE OF THE INJURY TO ANQUAN BOLDIN. AND HE HAS STEPPED UP AND HAS BEEN ACCOUNTED FOR TODAY.>>THIS HAS BEEN A COMPLETE WALKOVER BY THE ARIZONA OFFENSE ON THIS GREEN BAY DEFENSE, THE NUMBER-TWO DEFENSE IN THE NFL DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. WARNER, WITH ALL KINDS OF TIME, COMPLETES TO FITZGERALD FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. A FLAG IS DOWN. WHAT A CATCH BY FITZGERALD. WILL IT COUNT?>>PERSONAL FOUL, ROUGHING THE PASSER…>>YEP.>>…NUMBER 77, DEFENSE. TOUCHDOWN. PENALTY WILL BE ENFORCED ON THE KICKOFF.>>SECOND OF THE GAME FOR LARRY FITZGERALD, TO THE DELIGHT OF ANQUAN BOLDIN.>>WELL, KURT WARNER’S ABLE TO KEEP THE PLAY ALIVE, AND HE’S GETTING HIT JUST AS HE’S LETTING THIS BALL GO. I CANNOT DISAGREE MORE WITH THAT CALL RIGHT THERE — ROUGHING THE PASSER. CULLEN JENKINS IS BLOCKED INTO KURT WARNER. BUT THE BALL FLOATED ON HIM, AND LARRY FITZGERALD JUST ABLE TO LOCATE IT IN THE AIR. WE’LL GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE CALL, BUT JUST A HORRIBLE CALL ON CULLEN JENKINS.>>MEANWHILE, FITZGERALD JUST RAN OVER THE DEFENDER, WHICH LEFT HIM WIDE OPEN IN THE END ZONE, AND THEN HE SHOWED OFF THAT GREAT STRENGTH WITH A ONE-HANDED GRAB, LAYING OUT. AND KURT WARNER’S QUARTERBACK RATING IN THIS GAME IS 154.2.>>AND WE’LL GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. AND CULLEN JENKINS — YOU’RE GONNA SEE, AT THE END OF THIS, HE GETS BLOCKED, AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN CALLED A HOLD. I MEAN, HE’S BASICALLY TACKLED. AND WHEN THE FLAG — YOU SEE IT RIGHT THERE. I MEAN, THAT’S WHAT THE OFFICIAL SAW WAS THE HAND TO THE FACE, BUT HE’S JUST TRYING TO GET OFF OF A BLOCK AND THEN, AT THE SAME TIME, TRYING TO MAKE A PLAY ON THE QUARTERBACK. AND GIORDANO LOSES LARRY FITZGERALD ON THE BACK END. IT LOOKED TO ME LIKE THE BALL CAME OUT OF KURT WARNER’S HANDS AWKWARDLY AND THAT IT WAS GONNA FALL INCOMPLETE. LARRY FITZGERALD PICKED IT UP AND MAKES A PLAY.>>WELL, WHEN THE FLAG WAS THROWN, JENKINS WAS CELEBRATING. HE THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE A HOLD. HERE’S FITZGERALD. WATCH HIM RUN RIGHT THROUGH CHARLES WOODSON. AND THEN HE’S THERE TO MAKE THE ONE-HANDED CATCH. SO MUCH HAPPENED ON THAT PLAY, BUT, AT THE END OF IT, IT’S SEVEN MORE POINTS FOR ARIZONA. AND NOW, FOR THE CARDINALS — 7 POSSESSIONS, 5 TOUCHDOWNS, A FIELD GOAL, AND A FUMBLE DEEP INSIDE GREEN BAY TERRITORY. THEY HAVEN’T STOPPED THEM ALL DAY.>>WELL, THEY HAVEN’T STOPPED THEM, AND, YOU KNOW, I SAID, HEY, I DON’T THINK THAT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED ON CULLEN JENKINS. A BAD CALL THERE. AND I’LL BE HONEST WITH YOU, JOE. AT THE TOP OF THAT ROUTE, LOOKED TO ME LIKE LARRY FITZGERALD GOT AWAY WITH OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE IN THE END ZONE. I MEAN, CHARLES WOODSON IS A PHYSICAL PLAYER AND HE CAN PLAY THAT TYPE OF GAME, BUT LARRY FITZGERALD’S A BIG, PHYSICAL RECEIVER HIMSELF, AND IF THEY’RE GONNA LET HIM PLAY LIKE THAT, IT’S GONNA BE AWFULLY HARD, THEN, TO COVER LARRY FITZGERALD.>>RACKERS GETS TO KICK IT FROM THE 45. AND, JUST FOR KICKS, HE’LL TRY AND PLOW IT THROUGH THE UPRIGHTS, WHICH HE DOES. LET’S GO DOWN TO THE FIELD AND CHRIS MYERS.>>JOE, BEHIND THE CARDINAL BENCH, DURING THAT OFFENSIVE SERIES, AFTER THE DEFENSE GAVE UP A TOUCHDOWN TO THE PACKERS, DARNELL DOCKETT — NO COACHES. HE GATHERED ALL THE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS, HUDDLED AROUND. FIRST, THERE WAS A PRAYER. THEN THEY ALL PUT THEIR HAND IN. ULTIMATELY, THE MESSAGE WAS, “WHICH DEFENSE WILL TAKE A STAND AND DECIDE THIS GAME?” LET’S GO BACK UP TO JOE AND TROY.>>ALL RIGHT, CHRIS. WELL, WE GOT A CHANCE TO MEET WITH DARNELL DOCKETT ON FRIDAY. I — YOU JUST COME AWAY FROM A MEETING WITH DOCKETT VERY IMPRESSED. HE’S BEEN THROUGH A LOT, WAS AS A YOUNG MAN. HE WAS JUST NAMED TO HIS SECOND PRO BOWL. AND HE JUST KEEPS COMING. RODGERS HOLDS ON. NOW FIRES OVER THE MIDDLE. AND THE PASS IS CAUGHT BY JENNINGS. GOOD FOR 9 WITH 2 1/2 TO PLAY IN THE THIRD QUARTER.>>WELL, I KNOW THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING INTO THIS GAME, IN LOOKING AT IT, AND BELIEVING THAT, OF THE FOUR GAMES THIS WEEKEND, THAT THIS ONE WAS GONNA BE THE HIGHEST-SCORING. AND FOR THOSE THAT THOUGHT IT, YOU KNOW, THEY WERE RIGHT. I JUST THOUGHT THAT THE GREEN BAY PACKERS’ DEFENSE — NOT THAT ARIZONA WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO MOVE THE FOOTBALL, BECAUSE THEY DO PRESENT SOME MATCHUP PROBLEMS, BUT I SURE DIDN’T EXPECT THE PACKERS, DEFENSIVELY, TO PLAY THIS POORLY.>>SECOND DOWN AND 1. RYAN GRANT CARRIES FOR A FIRST DOWN. JUST SHY OF THE 35-YARD LINE WITH 1:45 REMAINING IN THE QUARTER.>>I JUST KIND OF GET THE FEELING, RIGHT NOW, THOUGH — AFTER ALL THE NERVES HAVE SETTLED AND NOW THE PACKERS REALLY FINDING THEIR RHYTHM, OFFENSIVELY, THEY’RE OKAY WITH THIS TYPE OF GAME. YOU KNOW, I MEAN, THEY WERE ABLE TO CUT IT TO SEVEN POINTS, BUT — AND WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS — I THINK THEY’RE A PRETTY CONFIDENT OFFENSIVE GROUP RIGHT NOW THAT THEY’RE GONNA BE ABLE TO MOVE THE BALL AND MATCH THAT SCORE AND CUT THIS BACK TO A ONE-POSSESSION DEAL.>>WELL, THEY’RE 14 POINTS IN THE HOLE RIGHT NOW, AS RODGERS THROWS DOWN THE MIDDLE. JENNINGS. AND GREG JENNINGS HAS A FIRST DOWN AT THE ARIZONA 45. A 20-YARD COMPLETION.>>WELL, YOU GOT GREG JENNINGS INSIDE, AND HE GETS A FREE RELEASE JUST STRAIGHT UP THE FIELD. AND MICHAEL ADAMS IS THE GUY WHO — WHENEVER THEY’VE SEEN THAT HE’S GONNA BE IN COVERAGE AND THEY GET A ONE-ON-ONE MATCHUP WITH HIM, EVEN THOUGH HE’S GETTING A LITTLE HELP OVER THE TOP THERE BY RALPH BROWN, THEY’RE GONNA GO AFTER HIM.>>YEAH, THEY’VE BEEN PICKING ON MICHAEL ADAMS. THEY PICKED ON HIM LAST WEEKEND IN THE GAME THAT DIDN’T MEAN ANYTHING. AND THEY’RE BACK AFTER HIM HERE AGAIN TODAY. BLITZ FROM ARIZONA. PACKERS PICK IT UP. PASS IS CAUGHT BY DRIVER. AND DRIVER IS OUT OF BOUNDS RIGHT AT THE MARKER. DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE OUT THERE DEFENDING. AND IT’S A FIRST DOWN FOR THE PACKERS WITH 32 SECONDS LEFT IN THE QUARTER.>>YOU KNOW, AND DOM CAPERS — HE SAID IT IN OUR CONVERSATION WITH HIM THE OTHER DAY, THAT AS HOT AS THE QUARTERBACKS ARE IN THE NFC — AND YOU THINK ABOUT THE SIX COMING IN, YOU KNOW, AND HOW WELL THEY WERE PLAYING, HE REALLY FELT THE BESTDEFENSEWAS GOING TO DETERMINE, YOU KNOW, WHO WINS. AND HE’S RIGHT. BOTH THESE DEFENSES RIGHT NOW — BOY, THEY ARE ON THEIR HEELS.>>COULD BE THE LAST PLAY OF THE QUARTER, AS AHMAN GREEN GETS IT. ON FIRST DOWN, PICKS UP A YARD, AND THAT’LL DO IT. ONE OF THE INJURY QUESTION MARKS FOR THE ARIZONA CARDINALS DURING THE WEEK — THE LEFT THUMB, BROKEN THUMB, OF CALAIS CAMPBELL. THE QUESTION WAS — COULD THEY PUT TOGETHER A FUNCTIONAL CAST FOR HIM TO PLAY? THEY DID. HE’S PLAYING. AND IT’S SECOND AND 9 AS WE START THE FOURTH QUARTER. DELAYED HAND-OFF, BRANDON JACKSON. TO THE 30. THIRD DOWN AND 5 COMING UP. IN THIS GAME, WE’VE HAD 62 POINTS, 685 YARDS, 45 FIRST DOWNS, AND 1 PUNT THE ENTIRE AFTERNOON. AND IT’S A 14-POINT ARIZONA LEAD. LOOK AT THE TOTAL YARDS, AS THESE DEFENSES ARE BACKPEDALING. THIRD AND 5. THAT’S FINLEY AT THE TOP. BLITZ COMING. RODGERS THROWS. OFF THE HANDS OF DONALD DRIVER. AND THE PACKERS ARE IN THAT AREA NOW WHERE THEY WILL THINK ABOUT GOING FOR IT ON FOURTH DOWN.>>YOU KNOW, THE KIND OF RESPECT THAT JERMICHAEL FINLEY GETS — HE SPLITS OUT, AND THEY ROLL A SAFETY OVER THE TOP, TOOK HIM AWAY. BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO WORK THAT FRONT SIDE, WHICH IS WHAT AARON RODGERS DID, AND THEY HAD DRIVER THERE ON MICHAEL ADAMS. IT JUST WAS A THROW THAT GOT AWAY FROM AARON RODGERS.>>GREEN BAY PASSES ON WHAT WOULD BE A 48-YARD FIELD GOAL TO GO FOR IT ON FOURTH AND 5. BLITZ. RODGERS THROWS… AND COMPLETES. THAT’S JONES. JAMES JONES TO THE END ZONE FOR A TOUCHDOWN! AND, ON FOURTH AND 5, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS NOT ONLY CONVERT BUT GET IT INTO THE END ZONE WITH LESS THAN A MINUTE GONE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.>>WELL, BRYANT McFADDEN GIVES JAMES JONES A HUGE CUSHION, BUT A WELL-THROWN BALL. BUT WATCH HOW JAMES JONES COMES BACK TO THE BALL RIGHT THERE WITH HIS HANDS. McFADDEN OVERRUNS IT. A LOT OF TIMES, YOU’LL SEE THE PACKERS — THEY’LL WORK BACK OUT TO THE SIDELINE ONCE THEY GET TO THE TOP OF THAT ROUTE. McFADDEN EXPECTING THAT. HE OVERPLAYS IT TO THE OUTSIDE, AND JAMES JONES, RECOGNIZING WHERE HE WAS, TURNS UP INSIDE AND IS ABLE TO GET IT ACROSS THE GOAL LINE.>>WHAT A GAME, AIKMAN. WHAT A GAME. JAMES JONES GETS INTO THE SCORING. SEVEN-POINT GAME, AND ARIZONA’S OFFENSE ABOUT TO TROT BACK ONTO THE FIELD. AARON RODGERS WONDERING IF HIS DEFENSE CAN STOP HIS COUNTERPART, KURT WARNER.>>[ CHUCKLES ] I THINK EVERY PACKER FAN AT HOME IS THINKING THE SAME THING.>>LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING ON THE RETURN. JARRETT BUSH IN ON THE TACKLE. DOWN TO PAM OLIVER.>>YEAH, JOE, KURT WARNER MOVING THE BALL VERY WELL AGAINST THE PACKERS’ SECONDARY IN THIS GAME. GREEN BAY MAY BE EVEN MORE HAVING TROUBLE HOLDING ITS GROUND. SAFETY ATARI BIGBY GOT HURT ON THE PACKERS’ LAST DEFENSIVE SERIES. HE’S GOT A HAMSTRING INJURY AND HE’S QUESTIONABLE. BACK TO YOU.>>ALL RIGHT. SO, NOW, WITH THE PACKERS’ DEFENSE ON THE FIELD, BIGBY’S GOT HIS HELMET OFF ON THE SIDELINE. AND MATT GIORDANO, WHO WE SAW, EARLIER, INJURED ON A KICK RETURN — GOT UP WITH A BAD KNEE — IS ON THE FIELD, AND HE TAKES OVER ALONGSIDE NICK COLLINS.>>AND THAT’S A BIG LOSS. ATARI BIGBY HAS BEEN PLAYING SOME AWFULLY GOOD FOOTBALL HERE OVER THE LAST FOUR WEEKS.>>ONLY ONE TAKEAWAY FOR THIS GREEN BAY DEFENSE SO FAR ON THE DAY. DOWN THE MIDDLE. BREASTON WIDE OPEN. HIT BY COLLINS AFTER A COMPLETION OF 17 YARDS.>>WELL, THEY JUST HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO COME UP WITH AN ANSWER FOR THIS RIGHT HERE. YOU SEE THE TWO-WIDE-RECEIVER SETS IN TIGHT, AND YOU’VE GOT GUYS JUMPING THEM. YOU’VE GOT JARRETT BUSH AND THEN NICK BARNETT, AND THEY’RE JUST NOT PLAYING THOSE COMBINATION ROUTES VERY WELL.>>HEARD THE REPORT FROM CHRIS MYERS THAT THE ARIZONA CARDINALS BELIEVED THEY HAD ABILITY TO TAKE IT TO THIS GREEN BAY DEFENSE DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD, AND THAT HAS CERTAINLY HAPPENED. HERE’S WELLS. TO THE 40. GAINED 3. KURT WARNER — HIS PASSER RATING IS JUST ABOUT PERFECT. 18 OF 20, 236 YARDS, 4 TOUCHDOWNS. AND HE CAME INTO THIS GAME WITH THE SECOND-ALL-TIME-HIGHEST QUARTERBACK RATING IN PLAYOFF HISTORY, SECOND TO THE GREAT BART STARR. AND HE’S APPROACHING HIS MARK OF 104.8.>>AND HE’S ONLY BEEN SACKED ONE TIME IN THIS BALLGAME, AND WE TALKED ABOUT HOW EFFECTIVE HE HAS BEEN WITH ONE SACK OR LESS IN ANY GAME THIS YEAR.>>HAND-OFF IS TO HIGHTOWER. AND HE IS CAUGHT AFTER A GAIN OF 1. BARNETT WAS IN THERE ON THE STOP FOR GREEN BAY, JOHNNY JOLLY, AS WELL. IT’S THIRD DOWN FOR ARIZONA.>>WELL, AND THIS IS A KEY THIRD DOWN, CLEARLY, FOR GREEN BAY TO MAKE ONE STOP IN THIS BALLGAME AND FORCE BEN GRAHAM TO PUNT. TO TELL YOU HOW GOOD ARIZONA HAS BEEN, OFFENSIVELY, THIS IS JUST THE THIRD THIRD DOWN THAT THE CARDINALS HAVE FACED THE ENTIRE GAME.>>SO FAR, THEY’RE 1 FOR 2. ON THIRD AND 6, WARNER DOWN THE MIDDLE. TIPPED. INCOMPLETE. WOODSON MADE THE PLAY. PASS INTENDED FOR FITZGERALD, AND IT’S CHARLES WOODSON, WHO HAS HAD AN ALL-PRO YEAR, GETTING HIS HAND ON THE FOOTBALL.>>YEAH, HE GETS UP TIGHT ON LARRY FITZGERALD. LARRY LIKES THAT. HE LIKES WHEN A CORNER WILL GET UP AND PLAY TIGHT. BUT WOODSON IS ABLE TO PLAY UNDERNEATH IT. HE DOES A GREAT JOB OF GETTING HIS HAND ON THE BALL, AND THE REASON HE WAS ABLE TO WAS BECAUSE HE HAD SAFETY HELP WITH NICK COLLINS OVER THE TOP. SO HE DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT GETTING BEAT DEEP.>>NOW YOU GET TO SEE YOUR FAVORITE PUNTER, BEN GRAHAM.>>I WAS WONDERING IF WE WERE EVER GONNA GET TO SEE HIM TODAY.>>HE’S HAD A BIG YEAR. AND HE’S ABLE TO GET THAT ONE AWAY. BUT IT’S NOT VERY WELL HIT. BART STARR LOST HIS FIRST THEN WON HIS NEXT NINE. FAVRE WON HIS FIRST. RODGERS PLAYING IN HIS FIRST AND PLAYING OUT OF A DEEP HOLE MOST OF THE DAY. OVER THE MIDDLE, WIDE OPEN IS FINLEY. AND JERMICHAEL FINLEY HAS CARVED UP THIS CARDINAL DEFENSE, AS HE PICKS UP 38 YARDS, TAKING IT INTO ARIZONA TERRITORY. AND A PLAYER IS DOWN. THAT’S CLIFTON, THE LEFT TACKLE.>>WELL, THEY JUST HAVE NOT HAD AN ANSWER FOR JERMICHAEL FINLEY. PLAYING ZONE COVERAGE, AND, YOU KNOW, YOU SEE HE HAD THE ENTIRE THIRD OF THE FIELD THERE TO WORK TO GET OPEN. IN FACT…>>CLIFTON IS OUT. T.J. LANG TAKES OVER AT LEFT TACKLE. FIRST DOWN, GREEN BAY… AT THE ARIZONA 29. LITTLE PUMP FAKE. AND DRIVER’S WIDE OPEN. MAKES A MOVE. AND HE IS OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 2. I MEAN, NOBODY IS COVERING ANYBODY FOR ARIZONA. THESE GREEN BAY RECEIVERS — FINLEY AND OTHERS — ARE ABSOLUTELY WIDE OPEN.>>BUT THIS IS A GOOD JOB BY AARON RODGERS. YOU’RE GONNA SEE DONALD DRIVER — OR DONALD LEE. HE’S GONNA GO OUT TO THE FLAT. THAT’S WHO AARON RODGERS PUMPS TO GET THE CORNER ON THAT, BECAUSE HE’S GETTING HELP. I MEAN, THE CARDINALS COULD NOT HAVE BETTER COVERAGE RIGHT THERE. THEY’VE GOT McFADDEN OUT THERE ON DRIVER WITH SAFETY HELP, BUT BECAUSE AARON RODGERS PUMPS THE CORNER, McFADDEN, ON TO DONALD LEE, IT CREATES THIS VOID THERE ON THE SIDELINE FOR THE COMPLETION. GREAT JOB BY RODGERS.>>HAND-OFF IS TO KUHN, THE FULLBACK. AND KUHN IS IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN! AND WE ARE AN EXTRA POINT AWAY FROM A TIE GAME. EVEN A LITTLE SHAKE OF THE HEAD FROM MIKE McCARTHY, THE FOURTH-YEAR HEAD COACH OF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS. THIS HAS BEEN STUNNING, THE TURNAROUND.>>WELL, THEY GOT A NICE PUSH UP FRONT. OF COURSE, T.J. LANG — HE HAD TO COME IN FOR CLIFTON THERE. BUT THEY GOT A NICE PUSH IN THE MIDDLE.>>THE GREEN BAY PACKERS WITH FOUR STRAIGHT TOUCHDOWN DRIVES THIS HALF, AND THEY’VE TIED THE GAME AT 38. THIS COULD BE THE THIRD-BIGGEST POSTSEASON COME-FROM-BEHIND VICTORY IN THE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE. AND DRIVER A BIG PART OF THAT LAST DRIVE. AND, WELL, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE WAY THIS THING STARTED? 17-0, ARIZONA JUMPED OUT ON TOP. THEY WERE AT HOME. GREEN BAY — HERE’S RODGERS, HASN’T BEEN IN A PLAYOFF GAME. AND THIS HAS BEEN SOME KIND OF COMEBACK.>>WELL, IT’S BEEN IMPRESSIVE, BECAUSE THE ONE THING YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU GET BEHIND THE WAY THAT THE PACKERS DID EARLY IN THIS BALLGAME — YOU HOPE THAT YOU’RE ABLE TO AT LEAST GET IT TO A POSITION IN THE GAME WHERE YOU CAN START, THEN, TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE OPPOSING TEAM. THAT’S WHAT THEY WERE ABLE TO DO. IT STARTED WITH THE ONSIDE KICK BY MIKE McCARTHY AND GREAT EXECUTION TO BE ABLE TO CUT IT, THEN, TO A ONE-POSSESSION GAME. THE DEFENSE FINALLY MAKING A STOP ON THIRD DOWN, AND NOW, YOU KNOW, THE PACKERS GO RIGHT DOWN. THEY TIE THIS GAME UP. IT’S GAME ON NOW.>>SO, NOW CHAD CLIFTON HAS TO GET ONTO A CART, BE HELPED OFF THE FIELD. BEEN PART OF WHAT’S BEEN VERY SOLID OFFENSIVE-LINE PLAY OVER THE LAST EIGHT WEEKS NOW. THIS ONE GETS BEHIND LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING, AND HE’LL TAKE A KNEE. THE BIGGEST POSTSEASON COMEBACKS TO WIN — JANUARY 3, 1993, 32 POINTS BY FRANK REICH AND THE BUFFALO BILLS OVER HOUSTON. THAT WAS IN THE AFC FIRST ROUND. JANUARY 5, 2003 — 24 POINTS, SAN FRANCISCO OVER THE GIANTS IN THE NFC FIRST ROUND. AND, TODAY, GREEN BAY TRAILED BY 21 POINTS. IT WOULD BE THE THIRD-BIGGEST IF GREEN BAY SOMEHOW MANAGES TO WIN THIS GAME. HERE’S KURT WARNER NOW FROM THE 20. WARNER THROWS… AND OVERTHROWS BREASTON.>>HOW ABOUT THE JOB THAT AARON RODGERS HAS DONE IN THIS BALLGAME? I MEAN, TO COME OUT HERE IN HIS FIRST NFL START — OR FIRST PLAYOFF START AND HAVE IT GO AS BAD AS IT DID EARLY IN THIS GAME — FIRST THROW OF THE GAME IS AN INTERCEPTION — AND TO GET DOWN LIKE THEY GOT DOWN, BASICALLY ELIMINATING THE RUNNING GAME, AND FOR HIM TO COME BACK AND MAINTAIN HIS COMPOSURE AND PLAY THE WAY THAT HE HAS AND BRING THIS TEAM BACK, BASICALLY PUTTING THEM ON THEIR SHOULDER WITHOUT ANY HELP, REALLY, FROM ANYONE ELSE HAS BEEN TRULY REMARKABLE.>>HE HAS A PACKER PLAYOFF-RECORD 360 PASSING YARDS. HERE’S FITZGERALD. AND A GOOD TACKLE BY WOODSON, WHO’S ONE OF THE BETTER TACKLING CORNERS IN THE LEAGUE. A GAIN OF 6. THIRD DOWN AND 4 COMING UP. ATARI BIGBY IS STILL OUT OF THE LINEUP FOR GREEN BAY. JERMICHAEL FINLEY, BY THE WAY — 150 RECEIVING YARDS, ALSO A PACKER PLAYOFF RECORD. BUT, RIGHT NOW, IT’S KURT WARNER, IN A TIE GAME, FACED WITH THIRD AND 4. WARNER THROWS. WIDE OPEN IS HIGHTOWER. AND HE SPINS FOR THE FIRST DOWN. GOT AROUND WOODSON AND PICKED UP 7.>>WELL, WE CAME INTO THIS GAME TALKING ABOUT JEREMY BRIDGES AND HOW HE WAS GONNA HAVE TO HOLD UP AGAINST CLAY MATTHEWS, AND, FOR THE MOST PART, HE’S DONE A GOOD JOB. CLAY MATTHEWS TRIES A SPIN MOVE HERE AT THE TOP OF THIS, AND, YOU KNOW, THE BALL’S OUT. IT WAS A PRETTY QUICK THROW THERE BY KURT WARNER. BUT JEREMY BRIDGES HAS BEEN VERY INCONSISTENT. HE HAD AN EXCELLENT START IN HIS FIRST START THIS YEAR, AGAINST MINNESOTA. BUT HE’S HELD UP PRETTY GOOD AGAINST CLAY MATTHEWS.>>MAKING HIS FOURTH STRAIGHT START AT LEFT TACKLE. CARDINALS LOST MIKE GANDY, PUT HIM ON I.R. THIRD WEEK OF DECEMBER. HERE’S BEANIE WELLS. AND A GOOD PLAY BY BARNETT. BY THE WAY, THE LAST TIME KURT WARNER FACED GREEN BAY IN THE PLAYOFFS WAS 2001. PACKERS TURNED IT OVER EIGHT TIMES, WITH SIX BRETT FAVRE INTERCEPTIONS, AND THE RAMS BEAT GREEN BAY, 45-17. KURT WARNER HAS HIS HANDS FULL TODAY WITH HIS COUNTERPART, AARON RODGERS, WITH A PACKER-RECORD 360 PASSING YARDS AND WHAT IS NOW A TIE GAME. SECOND AND 8.>>WELL, WHEN THE OFFENSES ARE SCORING LIKE THIS, IT’S A LOT OF PRESSURE ON THE QUARTERBACK KNOWING THAT YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO PUNT, BECAUSE YOUR OWN UNIT — DEFENSIVE UNIT — PROBABLY WON’T MAKE A STOP ON THE OTHER END. HERE’S HIGHTOWER SPINNING TO MAKE THE CATCH. AND HE STAYS IN BOUNDS. NOW THEY’RE GONNA SAY HE’S OUT OF BOUNDS RIGHT AT THE MARKER, ENOUGH FOR A FIRST DOWN, BUT PULL THE BALL BACK TO THE ARIZONA 43.>>WELL, YOU’RE GONNA SEE CULLEN JENKINS. HE’S STANDING UP HERE. BUT THEN HE HAS TO COME OFF. OBVIOUSLY, THEY DON’T WANT HIM LOCKED UP MAN-TO-MAN WITH TIM HIGHTOWER. THEY WERE HOPING HE WOULD STAY IN AND BLOCK AND THEN CULLEN JENKINS WOULD HAVE STAYED ON THE RUSH. BUT NO. HIGHTOWER GOES OUT ON THE ROUTE, WHICH FORCES CULLEN JENKINS TO BE INTO COVERAGE. AND WHEN YOU CAN GET THOSE TYPE OF MATCHUPS WITH ALL THE ZONE BLITZES AND ZONE DOGS AND THINGS THAT WE SEE IN TODAY’S GAME, OCCASIONALLY, THAT HAPPENS.>>BOTH TEAMS OVER 400 TOTAL YARDS IN THIS GAME. FIRST DOWN, ARIZONA. HAND-OFF, HIGHTOWER. AND HE LOSES YARDAGE. MATTHEWS AND CHILLAR. A LOSS OF 2. 8 MINUTES TO PLAY.>>THESE LINEBACKERS FOR GREEN BAY ARE NOT THE BIGGEST GUYS IN THE WORLD. CLAY MATTHEWS — THEY HAVE HIM LISTED AT ABOUT 250 POUNDS, AND, BOY, WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIM, YOU HAVE A HARD TIME IMAGINING THAT HE’S THAT BIG. I CERTAINLY DON’T THINK HE CAN CARRY MUCH MORE THAN THAT. NICK BARNETT’S NOT AN IMPOSING MIDDLE LINEBACKER. BUT THEY’RE VERY FAST, VERY PHYSICAL, AND THOSE BIG GUYS UP FRONT DO A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING BODIES OFF OF THEM AND ALLOWING THEM TO RUN FREELY TO THE BALLCARRIER.>>LINEBACKER JONES IS ACROSS FROM THE SLOT RECEIVER. THAT WAS WRIGHT. PASS COMPLETE TO PATRICK. AND BEN PATRICK IS BROUGHT DOWN JUST SHORT OF FIRST-DOWN YARDAGE. BUT NOW ARIZONA’S ON THE GREEN BAY SIDE OF MIDFIELD. WE’RE GONNA GET A MEASUREMENT. CERTAINLY LOOKED LIKE, WITH WHERE THEY SPOTTED THE FOOTBALL, IT’LL BE THIRD DOWN AND INCHES.>>WELL, IT’S NOT A GOOD COMBINATION FOR GREEN BAY WHEN YOU’RE PLAYING ZONE COVERAGE AGAINST KURT WARNER AND YOU’RE ALSO ALLOWING HIM TIME TO THROW. I MEAN, HE, LIKE ALL OF THE TOP QUARTERBACKS IN THE LEAGUE — IT’S IMPOSSIBLE. YOU JUST CANNOT HOLD UP, AT ANY LEVEL, IN PASS COVERAGE GIVEN THAT KIND OF TIME.>>ONLY ONE SACK TODAY FOR GREEN BAY. AND IT IS THIRD DOWN AND INCHES, WITH THE BALL BASICALLY AT THE PACKERS’ 46. ONLY BEEN HIT SEVEN TIMES. THERE’S A LOT OF TALK — CHAT ROOMS AND ONLINE — ABOUT THIS POTENTIALLY BEING KURT WARNER’S FINAL GAME, IF THE ARIZONA CARDINALS DON’T WIN THIS BALLGAME. HE’S SIGNED THROUGH NEXT YEAR, BUT HE COULD WALK AWAY. HE SUFFERED ANOTHER CONCUSSION EARLIER THIS SEASON IN A GAME AT ST. LOUIS. THERE’S NO GUARANTEE THAT HE’S COMING BACK FOR THE 2010 SEASON. THIRD DOWN. HAND-OFF TO BEANIE WELLS. AND THE ROOKIE HAS A FIRST DOWN. FIRST DOWN, ARIZONA. AND NOT ONLY DOES THE DRIVE CONTINUE, BUT THE CLOCK CONTINUES TO WIND WITH UNDER 7 TO PLAY.>>YEAH, THAT’S A GOOD POINT, BECAUSE, A LOT OF TIMES, AS AN OFFENSE, WHEN — YOU KNOW, THEY PICKED UP THE FIRST DOWN. COULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD TIME THERE TO MAYBE TAKE A SHOT DOWN THE FIELD. THEY ELECTED TO JUST PICK UP THE FIRST DOWN FIRST. A LOT OF OFFENSIVE COORDINATORS, IN THIS SITUATION, WILL NOW TRY TO TAKE A SHOT DOWN THE FIELD ON A BIG PLAY. BUT I THINK THAT KEN WHISENHUNT’S PROBABLY LOOKING AT THE CLOCK, AS YOU JUST SAID, JOE, SAYING, “WELL, YOU KNOW, HEY, LET’S JUST TRY TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF THIS CLOCK AND GET SOME POINTS, PREFERABLY A TOUCHDOWN, AND LIMIT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GREEN BAY.”>>WARNER’S GONNA FLOAT IT. THERE’S YOUR SHOT. AND THERE’S BREASTON. FIRST DOWN AT THE GREEN BAY 20. 27 YARDS FROM KURT WARNER.>>YEAH, TRAMON WILLIAMS — HE’S UP IN TIGHT COVERAGE ON STEVE BREASTON. A GOOD MOVE BY BREASTON. YOU SEE HIM START TRAMON WILLIAMS TO THE INSIDE, AND WHAT THAT DOES IS — IT AFFORDS KURT WARNER A LOT OF GRASS THERE ON THE OUTSIDE TO MAKE A THROW. NOW, HE COULD HAVE GIVEN HIM EVEN A BETTER THROW THAN THAT. EXCELLENT CATCH BY STEVE BREASTON. LOOKED LIKE HE BROUGHT THAT ONE IN WITH ONE ARM.>>YEP. THAT’S THE THIRD ONE-HANDED, ONE-ARMED CATCH OF THIS HALF. FIRST TWO WERE FOR TOUCHDOWNS. HERE’S BEANIE WELLS. TRIPPED UP AS HE GOT THROUGH THE LINE. A GAIN OF 3. NICK BARNETT BROUGHT HIM DOWN. 5 1/2 TO GO. WELL WITHIN FIELD-GOAL RANGE FOR NEIL RACKERS. EACH SIDE WITH ALL THREE OF THEIR TIME-OUTS REMAINING.>>WELL, AS GOOD AS THIS PACKERS DEFENSE HAS BEEN THIS YEAR, THEIR ONLY LOSS THERE IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON WAS AGAINST PITTSBURGH, BUT BEN ROETHLISBERGER AND THAT GROUP WENT UP AND DOWN THE FIELD ON THEM A LOT LIKE WHAT WE’RE SEEING RIGHT HERE TODAY WITH KURT WARNER.>>SECOND AND 7! OVER THE MIDDLE, BREASTON! TOUCHDOWN!>>WE SEE THE PROTECTION UP FRONT. JEREMY BRIDGES, THE LEFT TACKLE, DOING A GOOD JOB, LEVI BROWN. STEVE BREASTON UP THE SEAM. NICK BARNETT TRYING TO GET UNDERNEATH IT AND MAKE A PLAY ON IT. HE’S UNABLE TO.>>HOW ABOUT THE NUMBERS FOR WARNER? 24 OF 28, 312 YARDS, 5 TOUCHDOWNS. WELL, THE ARIZONA CARDINALS LOST ANQUAN BOLDIN, THEIR 1,000-YARD RECEIVER, LAST WEEK IN THE SECOND HALF OF A MEANINGLESS GAME. THEY HAVEN’T MISSED A BEAT. EARLY DOUCET HAS TWO TOUCHDOWN CATCHES. NOW BREASTON HAS ONE. IT’S A SEVEN-POINT ARIZONA LEAD. AND THIS IS TRAMON WILLIAMS ON THE RETURN. HAS SOME ROOM TO RUN. STAYS UP. GETS TO THE 30, AND THAT’S IT.>>WELL, NOW IT’S AARON RODGERS’ TURN TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN.>>SECOND-YEAR STARTER AARON RODGERS. QUICK THROW. JONES MADE THE CATCH. HE GOT TO THE 35, STOPPED, TURNED AROUND, GOT IT. A 5-YARD GAIN. McFADDEN ON THE TACKLE FOR ARIZONA.>>YOU KNOW, YOU TALK ABOUT KURT WARNER AND ALL THE SPECULATION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS GONNA BE HIS LAST YEAR AND YOU LOOK AT THE TYPE OF GAME HE’S, THEN, HAVING HERE TODAY AND YOU CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE SOMEBODY WALKING AWAY FROM THE GAME PLAYING AT THE LEVEL THAT HE’S PLAYING. I UNDERSTAND THE CONCUSSION THAT HE HAD A FEW WEEKS AGO, BUT HE HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING HERE IN THIS GAME.>>SECOND AND 5. CHAD CLIFTON IS OUT ON THE BENCH WITH AN ANKLE INJURY. T.J. LANG AT LEFT TACKLE. AND CONTACT AND A FLAG. GREG JENNINGS WAS INTERFERED WITH BY MICHAEL ADAMS, WHO’S HAD A ROUGH COUPLE OF WEEKS.>>YEAH, HE’S HAD A TOUGH ONE HERE TODAY, THAT’S FOR SURE. AND THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHERE 27 IS AT ALL TIMES ON THE FIELD.>>HOLDING — DEFENSE, NUMBER 27. 5-YARD PENALTY. AUTOMATIC FIRST DOWN.>>YOU KNOW, BOTH OF THESE OFFENSES, RIGHT NOW, ARE JUST DOING AN AWFULLY GOOD JOB OF PUTTING PRESSURE ON THESE DEFENSIVE BACKS. AND THE WAY THAT THESE QUARTERBACKS ARE THROWING THE FOOTBALL, I MEAN, NONE OF THESE DEFENSIVE BACKS KNOW WHAT’S COMING AT THEM.>>COMBINED POINTS, THE TOTAL YARDS. SEVEN-POINT CARDINAL LEAD. RODGERS IN TROUBLE. BUYS TIME AND WILL RUN. RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD. HE SLIDES WITH A GREEN BAY FIRST DOWN. 13-YARD RUN FOR AARON RODGERS, WHO HAD THE SECOND-HIGHEST RUSHING TOTAL AMONG NFL QUARTERBACKS THIS SEASON.>>WATCH T.J. LANG HERE. AND HE DOES A GOOD JOB. BERTRAND BERRY ACTUALLY GOT A GOOD JUMP OFF THE BALL, BUT T.J. LANG, WHO HAS DONE SPOT DUTY AT VARIOUS TIMES BECAUSE OF INJURY — HE’S ABLE TO MAKE UP FOR IT. AND IT’S BECAUSE OF THE JOB THAT HE DID WHICH ALLOWED, THEN, AARON RODGERS TO ESCAPE THE POCKET AND GET THE YARDS HE DID.>>CAN ARIZONA COME UP WITH A STOP? RODGERS THROWS. AND… IT’S JENNINGS WITH THE CATCH. AND THEY’RE GONNA SAY A GOOD CATCH IN BOUNDS. SOMEHOW GOT IT OVER McFADDEN FOR A 22-YARD GAIN.>>YEAH, THAT WAS ONE HECK OF A THROW RIGHT THERE OVER THE OUTSTRETCHED HAND THERE OF BRYANT McFADDEN AND MAKING A PLAY. YOU SEE THE BODY CONTROL THAT HE HAS RIGHT THERE ALONG THE SIDELINE, TURNING BACK, AND THEN KEEPING HIS FEET IN BOUNDS. GREG JENNINGS IS A VERY UNDERSTATED WIDE RECEIVER IN THIS LEAGUE. HE JUST GOES ABOUT HIS BUSINESS WEEK IN AND WEEK OUT. YOU DON’T HEAR A LOT ABOUT HIM, AS FAR AS TALKING, BUT HE IS ONE OF THE GREAT PLAYERS IN THIS GAME.>>HOW ABOUT HIS DAY? 8 CATCHES, 130 YARDS, AND A TOUCHDOWN. PLAY CLOCK HAS EXPIRED. GREEN BAY USES A TIME-OUT.>>TIME-OUT, GREEN BAY.>>THAT WAS CALLED ON THE SIDELINE. AARON RODGERS WASN’T AWARE THAT THE PLAY CLOCK WAS AT ZERO. AND THE QUESTION IS — CAN ANYBODY STOP ANYBODY?>>NO. [ LAUGHS ]>>THERE’S THE ANSWER.>>I’LL ANSWER THAT FOR YOU.>>OKAY.>>[ CHUCKLES ]>>I MEAN, THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE TIME REALLY IS NOT A FACTOR AT THIS POINT BECAUSE OF THE TIME-OUTS REMAINING. BUT IF YOU’RE GREEN BAY, YOU’RE THINKING, “THIS MIGHT BE OUR LAST POSSESSION TO TRY AND TIE THIS GAME, WITH THE WAY ARIZONA’S BEEN ABLE TO MOVE THE BALL ON OUR DEFENSE.”>>WELL, WHERE BRYANT McFADDEN WAS WHEN THAT BALL WAS TURNED LOOSE — AND AARON RODGERS THREW THAT BALL OFF-BALANCE. HE WAS FALLING BACK AS HE LET IT GO. HE WAS UNDER ENORMOUS PRESSURE IN THE POCKET, AND FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THAT KIND OF THROW AND GET THAT COMPLETION — INITIALLY, I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERCEPTED.>>HERE’S AARON RODGERS ON THAT THROW — 22-YARDER TO GREG JENNINGS. SOMEHOW GOT ENOUGH ON IT. IT WASN’T A FLOATER.>>NO.>>IT HAD SOME ZIP ON IT. TO THE 25-YARD LINE. FIRST DOWN. DELAYED HAND-OFF TO RYAN GRANT. CUTS UPFIELD. AND HE’S KNOCKED DOWN JUST SHY OF THE 20 BY CALAIS CAMPBELL.>>I THINK THAT’S WHAT’S BEEN SO IMPRESSIVE ABOUT WHAT THE PACKERS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO IS — OR WHATAARON RODGERSHAS BEEN ABLE TO DO, BECAUSE HE HASN’T GOTTEN A LOT OF HELP FROM THE RUNNING GAME. NOT THAT THEY HAVEN’T HAD SUCCESS RUNNING THE FOOTBALL WHEN THEY HAVE, BECAUSE THEY HAVE. AND I THINK IF THE GAME HAD UNFOLDED A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY EARLIER, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT MORE BALANCED THAN WHAT THEY’VE BEEN. BUT THIS HAS BEEN ALL ON HIM KEEPING THEM IN THIS GAME.>>SECOND DOWN AND 5. RODGERS… BACKPEDALS AND THROWS. BATTED INTO THE AIR. AND INCOMPLETE. McFADDEN AND WILSON COLLIDED ON THE PLAY. IT’S THIRD AND 5. AND McFADDEN SLOW TO GET UP.>>YEAH, AND AARON RODGERS GOT AWAY WITH ONE THERE, AND IT WAS PROBABLY BECAUSE HE HAD TWO DEFENDERS COMING INTO THE SAME AREA. BRYANT McFADDEN WAS ACTUALLY IN A GOOD POSITION ON THAT PLAY. YOU’RE GONNA SEE A LITTLE SPIN MOVE. THAT’S ADRIAN WILSON. AND THAT’S WHY THEY DIDN’T GET THE INTERCEPTION WAS BECAUSE HE WAS IN COVERAGE AND HE’S COMING INTO THE AREA OF WHERE BRYANT McFADDEN WAS, AND THAT’S WHERE THE COLLISION TOOK PLACE. BUT IF ADRIAN WILSON HAD NOT HAVE BEEN THERE IN THAT AREA, McFADDEN HAD A REAL BEAD ON THAT BALL. SO, NOW YOU’VE GOT A ROOKIE AND THEN YOU’VE GOT MICHAEL ADAMS, THE THIRD-YEAR PLAYER, WHO HAS HAD A TOUGH DAY, AS WE’VE POINTED OUT.>>AND IT’S TOLER ACROSS FROM JAMES JONES AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. THIRD AND 5. BLITZ. PASS COMPLETE. THAT’S FINLEY. WHAT A DAY FOR JERMICHAEL FINLEY. AND HE TAKES IT TO THE 11 WITH A FIRST DOWN.>>THAT’S A GOOD JOB THERE BY ANTREL ROLLE MAKING THE TACKLE. ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE BIG MAN, AND IF HE DOESN’T MAKE THE TACKLE, THERE WAS NOBODY ELSE THERE AND JERMICHAEL FINLEY GOES IN FOR THE SCORE.>>THERE WILL BE 2 MINUTES LEFT. THERE WILL BE 11 YARDS TO COVER. BRYANT McFADDEN IS BACK IN THE LINEUP FOR ARIZONA. 2 MINUTES LEFT. FIRST DOWN AT THE 11. GREEN BAY DOWN BY A TOUCHDOWN. RODGERS THROWS. COMPLETES TO HAVNER. MAKES A MOVE. SPENCER HAVNER IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN! THE ROOKIE OUT OF UCLA, A FREE AGENT, WHO HAD FOUR TOUCHDOWNS IN THE REGULAR SEASON, HAS QUIETED THIS CROWD, EXCEPT FOR ALL THE PACKER FANS IN ATTENDANCE. WE’RE AN EXTRA POINT AWAY FROM ANOTHER TIE.>>ALL THE GUY DOES IS SCORE TOUCHDOWNS. THERE WAS SOMEONE ELSE THAT I KNOW THAT HAD THAT NAME, TOO. BUT, YOU KNOW, IT’S INTERESTING, ‘CAUSE I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD SEE AARON RODGERS GET UNDERNEATH CENTER AND THAT THEY WOULD GO MORE TO RUNNING THE FOOTBALL DOWN THERE AND TRY TO TAKE A LITTLE TIME OFF THE CLOCK, BECAUSE THEY HAVE RUN IT WELL. INSTEAD, THEY GO EMPTY SET AND THROW IT.>>AND, SO, NOW AN ETERNITY FOR KURT WARNER — 1:52 AND THREE TIME-OUTS.>>AND, YOU KNOW, THEY SPLIT HAVNER OUT TO THE BOTTOM. AND AARON RODGERS INITIALLY WAS WORKING THE OPPOSITE SIDE. HE COMES BACK AND FINDS HAVNER. AND THEN ONCE HE GETS THE BALL INTO HIS HANDS, HE MAKES A NICE PLAY THERE ON RODGERS-CROMARTIE, SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH. YOU KNOW, THEY’VE GOT DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE OUT THERE ON SPENCER HAVNER. I MEAN, THEY’RE IN ZONE COVERAGE. IT’S NOT A MAN COVERAGE. THAT’S NOT WHO THEY’RE MATCHING HIM UP ON. BUT, BOY, IF YOU CAN SPREAD THEM OUT AND PUT HAVNER TO THE OUTSIDE AND YOU TAKE YOUR BEST CORNER, REALLY, OUT OF THE WAY, BUT, YET, THEY COME BACK AND WORK HIM. THAT’S JUST A GOOD JOB ON THEIR PART.>>SO, HAVNER, WHO’S A TWO-WAY PLAYER — ALSO PLAYS LINEBACKER — IS IN. OF ALL THE PLAYERS, IT’S SPENCER HAVNER WHO TIES THIS GAME. 90 POINTS TOTAL — SECOND-HIGHEST-SCORING GAME IN POSTSEASON HISTORY. AND THERE WILL BE MORE POINTS BEFORE THE END OF THIS ONE.>>[ CHUCKLES ] I’D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT AARON RODGERS IS THINKING AND I’D REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHAT KURT WARNER IS THINKING.>>WELL, WARNER CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK OUT THERE, AND AARON RODGERS IS WONDERING IF HIS DEFENSE CAN DO ANYTHING.>>WANT ME TO ANSWER THAT AGAIN?>>YEAH. WOULD YOU? ANSWER YOUR OWN QUESTION.>>[ LAUGHS ]>>1:52 LEFT. AND, AGAIN, THREE TIME-OUTS LEFT FOR THE CARDINALS. A KNUCKLER… THAT WILL STAY IN BOUNDS. AND LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING, ON THE RETURN, GETS IT TO THE 20, MAYBE JUST ACROSS. POPPINGA DOWNFIELD TO MAKE THE TACKLE. SEE THE TIME-OUTS LEFT ALONG THE TOP OF YOUR SCREEN. AND KURT WARNER CHECKS BACK IN. 24 OF 28, 5 TOUCHDOWN PASSES, WHICH IS A CARDINAL POSTSEASON RECORD, AND A QUARTERBACK RATING OF 152.7.>>UNBELIEVABLE. 24 OF 28, ONLY 4 INCOMPLETIONS AGAINST A PASS DEFENSE, COMING INTO THIS GAME, THAT WAS FIFTH IN THE NFL.>>AGAIN, A DEFENSE THAT LED THE LEAGUE WITH 40 TAKEAWAYS. THEY HAVE ONE IN THIS GAME. ONLY ONE “LINEMAN” IN THE LINEUP. AND A TIME-OUT TAKEN BY ARIZONA. THAT WAS THAT PSYCHO PACKAGE.>>TIME-OUT, ARIZONA.>>OR AT LEAST EXTRA DEFENSIVE BACKS WITH ONLY ONE DOWN LINEMAN, CULLEN JENKINS, ON THE FIELD. AND KEN WHISENHUNT DIDN’T LIKE WHAT HE WAS SEEING FROM THE SIDELINES. FROM THE 21. DOWN THE MIDDLE, IT’S PATRICK. AND BEN PATRICK FALLS FORWARD. BROUGHT DOWN RIGHT AT THE MARKER BY JARRETT BUSH.>>WELL, YOU’RE RIGHT, JOE. GREEN BAY GOING WITH A PSYCHO DEFENSE THAT THEY LIKE TO CALL IT — ONE DEFENSIVE LINEMAN, CULLEN JENKINS. SOMETIMES — HE DIDN’T THERE, EITHER, EVEN GO DOWN INTO A STANCE. BUT THE CARDINALS, UP FRONT, DID A NICE JOB OF CIPHERING THROUGH THAT AND PICKING IT ALL UP. [ WHISTLES BLOWING ]>>AND NOW MOVEMENT ALONG THE LINE.>>SNAP INFRACTION — NUMBER 63, OFFENSE. 5-YARD PENALTY. SECOND DOWN.>>THEY GET THE CENTER, LYLE SENDLEIN.>>WE’LL GO BACK AND TAKE A LOOK AT IT. HERE’S CULLEN JENKINS RIGHT HERE, AND HE’S THE DEFENSIVE LINEMAN AND HE’S THE ONLY ONE IN THE GAME. AND YOU SEE ALL THE GUYS THAT ARE STANDING UP AND HOW THEY MOVE AROUND PRIOR TO THE SNAP. IT CREATES SOME REAL CONFUSION FOR THOSE GUYS UP FRONT, AND THEY GET A LITTLE ANTSY TRYING TO GET OUT THERE AND PICK UP THE RIGHT GUYS. IT TAKES A LOT OF DISCIPLINE ALONG THAT OFFENSIVE LINE TO PICK IT ALL UP.>>AT&T POSTGAME SHOW COMING UP RIGHT AFTER THIS. OVER THE MIDDLE! ANOTHER WIDE-OPEN RECEIVER, BREASTON. AND THE PACKERS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO COVER THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD AGAINST WARNER. 24 YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN AT MIDFIELD.>>THAT TIME, THE PACKERS TRIED BRINGING CHARLES WOODSON AND A LITTLE PRESSURE, AND THEY’RE TRYING TO MANUFACTURE AS MUCH AS THEY CAN. THEY JUST CAN’T GET HOME.>>PASS COMPLETE TO FITZGERALD. THROWN OUT BY NICK COLLINS. AND A GAIN OF 14.>>WELL, HERE’S THAT PLAY EARLIER TO STEVE BREASTON. ONCE AGAIN, YOU KNOW, DOWN THE MIDDLE. YOU’RE GONNA SEE HIM THERE ON THE SLANT ROUTE AND THEN FITZGERALD ALONG THE SIDELINE — ANOTHER WELL-THROWN BALL BY KURT WARNER. AND, YOU KNOW, HE’S PUTTING ON AN ABSOLUTE CLINIC IN THIS GAME.>>HALF A MINUTE TO GO. WARNER ROLLS TO HIS RIGHT. HITS LaROD STEPHENS-HOWLING, WHO’S KNOCKED DOWN BY UNDERWOOD. A GAIN OF 3. IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING — AS TIME-OUT IS TAKEN BY ARIZONA — NEIL RACKERS’ LONG FOR THIS SEASON, 48 YARDS. HE MISSED TWO GAMES WITH A GROIN INJURY. DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, WAS 16 OF 17. HIS LONG FOR THE YEAR WOULD FORCE YOU TO TAKE IT TO THE 30-YARD LINE. HIS CAREER LONG IS 55 YARDS, WHICH MEANS TAKING IT TO THE 37-YARD LINE. HE’S HIT FROM 55 TWO TIMES IN HIS CAREER. LET’S GO DOWN TO THE FIELD AND CHRIS MYERS.>>AND, JOE, NEIL RACKERS, IN PREGAME WARM-UPS, HIT 2 OUT OF 3 FROM 53 YARDS, AND HE TOLD ME AFTERWARDS, “THE BALL TRAVELS A COUPLE YARDS FURTHER WHEN THE PLACE IS FULL.” IT HELPS THE BALL CARRY. SO HE THINKS HE CAN HIT FROM 55.>>WELL, WE SAW THAT WITH THE CROSBY ATTEMPT EARLIER IN THE GAME, THE 54-YARDER THAT HE MISSED — PLENTY OF LEG. IT’D BE A 50-YARD TRY FROM HERE. SECOND AND 7. QUICK SETUP AND THROW, AND THE PASS TO DOUCET. DOWN INSIDE THE 20. EARLY DOUCET TO THE 16-YARD LINE.>>WELL, WE SAW EARLIER IN THE GAME CHARLES WOODSON DO A GOOD JOB OF STRIPPING THE BALL FROM LARRY FITZGERALD. THIS TIME HE TRIES TO DO THE SAME THING WITH DOUCET INSTEAD OF JUST SIMPLY MAKING THE TACKLE. AND DOUCET WAS ABLE TO PICK UP SOME VERY VALUABLE YARDAGE AFTER THAT, WHICH MAKES THIS A CHIP SHOT FOR NEIL RACKERS.>>WELL, THE ARIZONA CARDINALS IMMEDIATELY CALL TIME-OUT. THEY’RE OUT OF TIME-OUTS. HERE’S THE CATCH BY DOUCET WHO HAD TO FIGHT CHARLES WOODSON FOR THE FOOTBALL. AND IN THE COURSE OF TRYING TO STRIP THE BALL OUT, DOUCET GAINED A FEW EXTRA YARDS, TOOK IT TO THE 16. AND NOW THE FIELD GOAL UNIT WILL COME ON FOR ARIZONA TO TRY AND SEND THEM OFF TO NEW ORLEANS FOR A GAME NEXT SATURDAY. THERE WILL TIME LEFT ON THE CLOCK, BUT ONLY ABOUT 10 SECONDS. RACKERS MISSED ONLY ONCE DURING THE REGULAR SEASON. HE’S 1 FOR 1 TODAY. 34-YARD TRY. LONG SNAPPER IS MIKE LEACH, BEN GRAHAM, THE PUNTER, WILL HOLD IT, AND NEIL RACKERS TRY TO KNOCK IT THROUGH FROM 34 YARDS OUT. GOOD SNAP. GOOD HOLD. AND THE KICK IS PULLED! MISSED WIDE LEFT. [ CROWD MURMURING ] AND THE LONELY WALK BACK TO THE SIDELINE FOR NEIL RACKERS, AS THIS GAME IS HEADED FOR OVERTIME.>>YEAH, BOY, HE JUST CAME IN AT THAT THING AND JUST — IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS A LITTLE ANTSY AT THE POINT OF THE KICK. I MEAN, HE CAME IN AND JUST YANKED IT. I MEAN, JUST FLAT YANKED IT.>>SO A MISS FROM 34, CELEBRATION FROM MIKE McCARTHY, AND AFTER A KNEEL-DOWN, THIS GAME IS HEADED INTO OVERTIME, WHICH PROBABLY IS A FITTING WAY FOR THIS GAME TO END. GOOD THING WE’RE NOT GONNA PLAY BY COLLEGE RULES, OR THIS NIGHT MAY NEVER END. WE’D BE PLAYING IT TOMORROW.>>[ LAUGHS ] WELL, THAT TELLS YOU HOW IMPORTANT THIS COIN TOSS IS GONNA BE.>>YEAH, REALLY. I MEAN, WITH TWO DEFENSES THAT HAVE JUST BEEN WALKED THROUGH IN THIS GAME. SO MUCH FOR BILL DAVIS, THE FIRST-YEAR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR AND THE SEVEN YEARS HE SPENT UNDER DOM CAPERS AND THE BRILLIANT YEAR THAT DOM CAPERS HAD PUTTING THIS 3-4 DEFENSE IN WITH THE GREEN BAY PACKERS AND ALL THE MOMENTUM THAT THEY HAD. THESE TWO DEFENSES HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO STOP ANYTHING, FOR THE MOST PART, IN THIS GAME. AND NOW ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT FLIPS OF A COIN IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN AT MIDFIELD. SUDDEN-DEATH OVERTIME.>>WELL, RIGHT NOW, I MEAN, YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THERE, THE POSTSEASON OVERTIME RULES, BUT THE MOMENTUM HERE — WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS HERE AT COIN TOSS, BUT THE CARDINALS CERTAINLY DEMORALIZED BASED ON THE WAY REGULATION ENDED. ALL RIGHT, GENTLEMAN, FIRST TEAM TO SCORE WINS. IT IS JUST LIKE STARTING THE GAME ALL OVER AGAIN. YOU’LL GET THREE TIME-OUTS. WE’LL USE REGULAR TIMING RULES. ALL REPLAY SITUATIONS WILL BE HANDLED UPSTAIRS. GREEN BAY, IT’S YOUR CHOICE. WHO’S GONNA CALL THE COIN? TAILS IS THE CALL. IT IS A TAILS. YOU’VE WON THE TOSS. GREEN BAY WILL RECEIVE AT THIS END.>>BOY, YOU TALK ABOUT HAVING A GREAT YEAR. CHARLES WOODSON’S DONE EVERYTHING DEFENSIVELY, AND THEN HE CALLS THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COIN. THIS GAME WILL SET A LOT OF INDIVIDUAL FRANCHISE PLAYOFF RECORDS AND NFL PLAYOFF RECORDS FOR TOTAL YARDS, FIRST DOWNS, YOU NAME IT. AND NOW THIS BALL IS DRIVEN THROUGH THE BACK OF THE END ZONE. SOME ANGER IN THAT KICKOFF BY NEIL RACKERS WHO JUST MISSED A CHANCE TO POTENTIALLY WIN THE GAME. AS YOU LOOK AT THE COMBINED TOTALS — 90 POINTS. THE YARDAGE AND THE 62 FIRST DOWNS, WHICH IS AN NFL POSTSEASON RECORD, AND THE YARDAGE TOTAL BY THE END OF THIS GAME WILL BE AN NFL POSTSEASON RECORD.>>YOU KNOW, JOE, I WAS WATCHING AARON RODGERS THERE, WHEN WE WERE IN COMMERCIAL BREAK, ON THE SIDELINES. AND, I TELL YOU, THIS GUY IS ONE COOL CUSTOMER.>>PLAY-ACTION TO START THE OVERTIME. AND RODGERS DOWN THE MIDDLE GOES FOR JENNINGS. AND WITH THE OFFICIAL FALLING ON HIS BACKSIDE, JENNINGS WAS OPEN AND MISSED.>>THEY COME OUT. THEY WANT TO TAKE A SHOT DOWN THE FIELD THERE TO GREG JENNINGS. AND THEY HAD HIM. YOU KNOW, PLENTY OF TIME HERE OFF OF PLAY-ACTION. YOU SEE THERE’S NOBODY THERE IN THE MIDDLE EXCEPT THE GUY DEFENDING HIM, AND HE GETS TIED UP. IT WAS ANTREL ROLLE. AND I THINK AARON RODGERS THOUGHT MAYBE HE WAS GONNA FLATTEN THAT THING OFF JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE, ‘CAUSE HE THREW A LINE DRIVE IN THERE. AND IF HE’D JUST BEEN ABLE TO LAY IT A LITTLE MORE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EASY COMPLETION.>>AND THE END OF THE GAME. SECOND AND 10. RODGERS DUMPS IT OFF. PENALTY FLAG ON THE PLAY, AS RYAN GRANT HAS A FIRST DOWN. FLAG IS THROWN BY SCOTT GREEN.>>HOLDING, OFFENSE, NUMBER 73. 10-YARD PENALTY. SECOND DOWN.>>THEY GET DARYN COLLEDGE ON A HOLD — THE STARTING LEFT GUARD.>>SEE COLLEDGE RIGHT HERE, THE LEFT GUARD. AND THEN AARON TAKES A SHOT OFF OF THAT AT THE VERY END OF THE PLAY. AND COLLEDGE DID GO DOWN AROUND THE ANKLES. BERTRAND BERRY — COULD HAVE CALLED HIM THERE ON HELMET-TO-HELMET ON AARON RODGERS. HE LED WITH THE CROWN OF HIS HEAD, BUT THEY MISSED THAT ONE.>>INSTEAD OF A FIRST AND 10 AT THE GREEN BAY 34, IT’S SECOND AND 20 AT THE 10 AFTER THE HOLD BY DARYN COLLEDGE. JUST A THREE-MAN RUSH. RODGERS… GETS IT TO JAMES JONES. AND JONES CANNOT GET PAST THE 25. THEY’LL MARK HIM DOWN JUST SHORT OF IT. AND IT’S A MORE MANAGEABLE THIRD DOWN COMING UP — A 15-YARD CATCH-AND-RUN TO JAMES JONES. AND IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THESE FIRST DOWNS ARE HUGE ‘CAUSE NEITHER TEAM WANTS TO GIVE IT BACK TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH THEIR WAY THEIR DEFENSE HAS PLAYED HERE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIRD AND 5.>>AND THAT’S NOT LOST ON AARON RODGERS, EITHER. I MEAN, HE KNOWS THAT, AND SO HE’S GONNA TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS DOWN THAT HE MAY NOT TAKE IF THE DEFENSE IS PLAYING BETTER THAN THEY HAVE.>>EXTRA MAN ON THE BLITZ. RODGERS GETS A HAND TO THE FACE. THE BALL IS OUT! THE ARIZONA CARDINALS WIN IT! [ CROWD CHEERING ] [ ALL CHEERING ]>>[ SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY ]>>WOULDN’T YOU KNOW, A GAME LIKE THIS ENDS ON A DEFENSIVE PLAY, AND IT’S MICHAEL ADAMS, WHO’S BEEN PICKED ON FOR TWO WEEKS, FORCING THE TURNOVER, AND DANSBY TOOK IT IN FOR THE GAME-WINNING SCORE.>>YEAH, I MEAN, MICHAEL ADAMS, WHO THEY HAVE BEEN TARGETING THROUGHOUT THIS GAME, HE’S THE ONE THAT THEY CALL ON TO COME OFF THE EDGE WITH THE BLITZ. HE KNOCKS THE BALL OUT. AND THEN KARLOS DANSBY, WHO WAS THE ONE WHO WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TURNOVERS EARLY IN THIS BALLGAME — HE’S IN A GREAT POSITION THEN TO MAKE THE PLAY AND RUN IT IN.>>A DEFENSIVE SCORE ENDS THIS OFFENSIVE-HEAVY GAME. WE GO DOWN TO THE FIELD AND CHRIS MYERS.>>JOE, IN THE MIDDLE OF A CELEBRATION OF RED WITH KARLOS DANSBY — OUT OF BREATH. DESCRIBE THE PLAY FOR US.>>WE HAD THE PLAY CALLED EARLY IN THE GAME. WE MISSED THE SACK. BUT WHEN THE GAME WAS ON THE LINE, WE CALLED IT UP AGAIN. “MONEY” MIKE MADE A GREAT PLAY. HE MADE THE SACK. THE BALL WENT IN THE AIR. I JUST MADE A PLAY ON THE BALL.>>YOU WIN IN OVERTIME. CONGRATULATIONS. WE’LL SEE YOU IN NEW ORLEANS NEXT WEEK.>>SEE YOU IN NEW ORLEANS, BABY.>>ALL RIGHT. YOU GOT IT.

  2. Honestly when GB scored to make it 45-44 they shuda went for 2, jus win the game, percentage wise with the way these 2 defenses have played they wud of had a GREAT shot at converting

  3. Thanks for the great call on the unexpected and well executed onside kick Mr. Buck……(1:10:00)……..he should be fined for that lack of enthusiasm

  4. Kurt Warner was and is better than Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers is just overrated because he throws pretty. There's a reason Rodgers only has 1 SuperBowl; one in which he played the Bears in the NFC Championship Game (what a joke) and had a 55.4 Passer Rating. Then beat the Steelers who shouldn't have even been there but the Patriots got stunned by the Jets when Brady was having another amazing year. It's sad that Rodgers gets so much praise but no one ever mentions that he's not a clutch player at all. This game is another example.

    Packers fans here's a stat:

    Aaron Rodgers, when trailing by any amount entering the 4th quarter, is 0-35 against teams with a winning record. Think about how many games Brady, Manning, Warner, Montana have won in those situations. Rodgers is just overrated. He's great, no doubt. But not an all time great.

  5. I can't be the only one to see how boring Joe Buck used to sound. Watching him now, he has a lot more passion and seems more excited when big plays happen. But listening to him in games from like 2008-11 he just sounded so dry.

  6. 49ers beat packers in post season..49ers lose SB…seahawks beat packers in 2014..lose SB…..cardinals beat packes in 2009 post season..lose SB….i guess if you beat the packers you lose in the SB

  7. 9 seconds left, all 3 timeouts, you have Rodgers who is great at <hail Mary's and they decide to kneel instead of taking a chance? Terrible call

  8. @ 206:33 GB gets ticky-tack call on Colledge yet Berry goes helmet to helmet and nothing is called….???  if it was Shady it's a 50 yd. penalty….. AR had his shot to Jennings  205:31 all he had to do was float it up and let him run under it… That NON facemask call on the Cards to end it must rank as one of the WORST in NFL history.. He had him the whole way down and the ref was right there… that was the NFL saying "thank you Cards fro your new domed stadium. here's your fee pass to the Super Bowl" what a joke…..

  9. I remember watching this in McDonald's and I was like who score than again what happen the most points in a playoffs I ever seen

  10. One thing for the Cardinals 2010 season, it showed the Conference Championship the year before was no fluke. Hated to see Warner's career end at Bounty-gate-1.

  11. Man A-Rod should request a trade to the desert and help Larry get his first ring. A top notch defense, and a stud RB returning frm injury.. Hey only one fan can wonder ??

  12. TOTAL FACE MASK ends the game and NO ONE in the booth even mentions it…. Cards got every break to win this game..it is no accident that they also built NEW stadium and were rewarded with a super bowl trip…though they had a mediocre 9-7 record…

  13. Kurt Warner was simply incredible. He is the ultimate feel-good story: from grocery stocker to 3rd string QB to starting QB to MVP and Super Bowl champion. What is more impressive is late in his career, he revived himself and the Cardinals – just THAT close to another Super Bowl title.

  14. soooo are we going to sit here and act like 27 did not grab rodgers face mask on the last play and were also going to sit here and act like berry did not go helmet to helmet on rodgers goodness gracious….

  15. I really dont LIKE GREEN BAY THAT MUCH BUT THEY DEFINITELY GOT ROBBED WHEN THEY INTERCEPT THE BALL IN THE END ZONE AGAINST THE SEAHAWKS IN THE CLOSING SECONDS FOOTBALL IS FIXED ITS ALWAYS CONTROLLED BY THE CROOKED OFFICIALS

  16. Joe Buck really is horrible at calling great games which means he doesn't help make them better. The game winning play he says "balls out, cardinals win." I mean come on? How about in Super Bowl 42. Eli Manning makes a crazy escape to make a throw which probably is the greatest in history and you would think he's announcing paint dry. He sucks!

  17. I was at this game. Craziest game ever. When Dansby picked up that fumble to win the Game, I screamed as loud as I could and I couldn't even hear myself. Place was insanely loud all game.

  18. 2:05:12 <—- I'm sorry but I was rolling when I saw the ref tumble backwards, legs flying in the air lololololol!!!! And then all the replays right after showed it, too… :))))

  19. Thank you Joe Puck. My insomnia has been really bad this week and your droning commentary is putting me right to sleep.

  20. I think having to play this cardinals team prepared the saints for minnesota well in the nfc champ game. The vikings had a cakewalk through the divisional round in dalllas and they werent prepared for the aggressive defense no was gonna play in the title game.

  21. It's disappointing that "politics" robbed Kurt of the middle years of his career. Still one of the best to ever throw a football in my opinion.

  22. Everyone praises Rodgers for accuracy but he can’t hit wide open Jennings and nowadays just throw them in the dirt to protect his stats. Wonder why everyone likes Favre more hmmm
