Play Off Game 2-Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals

Back in Phoenix Arizona for the 2nd play off game on my tour, I arrived on a lovely warm evening ready for what I thought was going to be a very close and wide open game. It did not disappoint as the Cardinals scored the first touchdown in a very noisy University of Phoenix Stadium. The Packers replied with a couple of field goals to make it a  very tight 7-6 at half time to the Cards. The Packers looked the stronger and more aggressive team in the 3rd quarter and they scored a great touchdown to take the lead with the 4th quarter approaching. The cards then stepped up a gear and dominated the next quarter, racing into 20-13 led with no much time left. The Packers finally got the ball back with around 30 seconds to go, deep into their own territory, with no touchdowns left. Aaron Rodgers proceeded to throw a 50 yard catch to one of his wide receivers with 20 seconds to go and the clock running. Then with the last play of the game Rodgers attempts a hail Mary pass and incredibly for the second time this season, he connected with one of his receivers. Unbelievable! So the game goes into overtime. The Cardinal win the controversial coin toss, and with one of the next plays, Larry Fitzgerald runs almost the whole length of the pitch to the three yard line. The next play, Fitzgerald runs in the winning score. The Cardinals fans erupt. What a great finish, yet another one for me on my amazing tour.
