Aaron Rodgers did it again.
The Green Bay Packers’ season came down to the final play of the fourth quarter Saturday night in their NFC Divisional Playoff against the Arizona Cardinals, but luckily for them, they had Rodgers under center.
The Packers quarterback already had pulled a rabbit out of his hat when he completed a fourth-and-20 heave from his own end zone to extend Green Bay’s final drive. But even that pales in comparison to the unbelievable 41-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass that Rodgers threw to Jeff Janis in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter.
As you might remember, Rodgers did the same thing in the closing seconds of the Packers’ game against the Detroit Lions in December.
However, the Packers’ euphoria only lasted for a few seconds as Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald scored a touchdown on Arizona’s opening possession to win 26-20.
