    Packers lose another overtime playoff game in Arizona

    in Sports

    The Arizona Cardinals will be playing in the NFC Championship game after defeating the Green Bay Packers 26-20, in overtime. In 2009, the Cardinals also defeated the Packers in overtime. Aaron Rodgers completed his second hail mary of the season to send the game to overtime. The Cardinals won the coin flip and scored a touchdown to end the game. That drive consisted of three plays that covered 80 yards. On the first play of overtime, the Packers pressured Carson Palmer who scrambled to his right and threw back across the field to an open Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald had no one around him as he scampered 75 yards to the Packers five-yard line. Two plays later a shuffle pass to Fitzgerald ended the game. 

    The Packers were fortunate to have the ovetime period. From the Arizona 41-yard line with five seconds left, Rodgers took the shotgun snap and heaved the ball to the end zone. Jeff Janis leaped into the air and grabbed the ball for the game tying touchdown. 

    The changing point in this game could have been on the Arizona scoring drive in the fourth quarter. Green Bay was holding a 13-10 lead, and the Cardinals drove to the Green Bay 19-yard line. Palmer tried to force the ball to Michael Floyd on an out route, and Sam Shileds had a great break on the ball. The ball hit his hands and fell harmlessly to the turf. Shields would have had ended a scoring drive and possibly returned that interception for a touchdown. Three plays later Damarious Randle made a great play on a ball intended for Larry Fitzgerald. Randle broke up the pass but the ball deflected up and into the hands of Michael Floyd for a touchdown. This gave the Cardinals a 17-13 lead with 3:44 left. 

    Listen in and call us with your thoughts on the game.

    Arizona Cardinals show Packers why they are a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

    in Sports

    The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers came into Sunday's game having already clinched a playoff berth. The Cardinals dominated all aspects of the game, and showed the NFL that they are the front runner to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Arizona held the Packers to 178 total yards and forced four turnovers (3 fumble recoveries, 1 interception). They returned two fumbles for touchdowns, and kept the Packers from scoring a touchdown with the interception. 

    Green Bay did not have an answer for the Cardinals front seven. They allowed nine sacks and Aaron Rodgers was scrambling for daylight all game. The Packers also committed seven penalites for 59 yards. It was not the number of penalites that hurt the Packers, it was when the penalites happened. Josh Sitton and Corey Linsley, had penalties that ultimately led to the Packers punting. 

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Arizona Cardinals put up 17 points in the second quarter and never looked back. The outcome of this game could have been decided late in the second quarter. After the two minute warning, Carson Palmer had his screen pass intercepted by Mike Daniels, who returned the ball to the Arizona 15. With the score 10-0, the Packers could have went into halftime 10-7. Justin Bethel intercepted Rodger's pass intended for James Jones. 

    The Cardinals started shutting the door on the this game by dissecting the Packers defense. With 57 seconds left, Palmer led the Cardinals on a seven play, 80 yard drive that was capped with a seven yard touchdown pass to John Brown. Instead of being down by three or seven points, the Packers faced a 17 point halftime deficit. This momentum swing carried over into the second half. The Cardinals defense kept their foot on the gas and scored two defensive touchdowns. 

    The loss means the NFC North Division title will be on the line next week when the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings.

    What do the Green Bay Packers need to fix to beat the Arizona Cardinals?

    in Sports

    In week 16, the Green Bay Packers visited the Arizona Cardinals. They left the desert battered, bruised, and searching for some confidence. After a scoreless first quarter, the Cardinals finished the half with a seven play, 80 yard drive to take a commanding 17-0 lead after Aaron Rodgers threw a red zone interception. This turnover happened with under two minutes left in the half and was the turning point, in the game. With the score 10-0, the Packers were driving and ready to cut into the lead before the half. Not only did the Packers come away with no points, the Cardinals increased the lead.

    The second half did not get much better. Rodgers lost two fumbles that were returned for touchdowns and the Cardinals were never threatened. The blowout loss fell clearly on the offense as the Cardinals defense outscored the Packers offense 14-8. 

    Can the Green Bay Packers compete with the Arizona Cardinals? Yes, the Packers did compete with the Cardinals in the first half. As poorly as they played, they had a chance to go into halftime down by one score. Take away the two defensive scores and the two play 28 yard drive set up by a turnover, and you have a 17-8 game. 

    To compete on saturday, the Packers need to protect Rodgers and elminate the key turnovers. The offensive line should be healthier heading into the game. With a healthier line, the Packers should be able to have a better showing. With less pressure, the Packers can eliminate the turnovers.

    Green Bay Packers have hopes of 2nd seed if they can beat the Arizona Cardinals

    in Sports

    The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals have clinched a playoff berth. There will be no resting players due to the importance of this game. With a win, the Arizona Cardinals would clinch the second seed and a first round bye. A Packers win would keep their hopes of a first round bye alive. Should this happen, they would need to defeat the Minnesota Vikings and hope the Seattle Seahawks can defeat the Cardinals, in week 17. 

    The Packers and Cardinals both have veteran quarterbacks, but it has been the defensive units that have helped these teams win double digit games. Both teams rank in the top seven in points allowed. The Packers 18.9 points allowed per game ranks fifth, while the Cardinals rank seventh at 19.2. There are some glaring differences between the units. The cardinals are a stingy defense that thrives on capitalizing on opposing quarterback mistakes. They rank seventh in yards allowed and have 18 interceptions and have returned four of them for touchdowns. The Packers have allowed teams to move the ball, but they can apply pressure to opposing quarterbacks. Although they give up yards, they have done a good job forcing teams to settle for field goals.

    No wide receiver has filled the shoes of Jordy Nelson, and the Packers offense has struggled most of the season. The Packers have scored 24.8 points per game, compared to 31.8 for the Arizona Cardinals. Green Bay will need to figure out how to extend drives if they want to leave the desert with a win. The Packers only convert 36% of their third down opportunities, whereas the Cardinals convert at a league leading 47%. Whichever team can extend drives and win the turnover battle should bome away with the victory. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
