LACY RUMBLES FOR 61 YARDS
With the Packers trailing, 7-6, in the third quarter, RB Eddie Lacy broke off a 14-yard run and then, on the next snap, got loose for 61 yards, giving the Packers a first-and-goal on the 8-yard line. Three plays later, the Packers were in the end zone and had the lead for the first time in the game. The 61-yard run was the longest by a Packers running back in team postseason history and the second-longest rushing play overall, behind only WR James Lofton’s 71-yard run vs. Dallas in the 1982 playoffs.
RANDALL GETS THE INT IN END ZONE
The Packers were protecting a 13-10 lead when, on the second snap of the fourth quarter, Cardinals QB Carson Palmer tried to loft a high fade pass to WR John Brown in the back of the end zone. Packers rookie CB Damarious Randall was right there for the interception, taking potential points off the board for Arizona and keeping Green Bay on top.
HAIL MARY TO JANIS SENDS GAME TO OT
Trailing 20-13 and down to their last snap, the Packers struck for their second successful Hail Mary of the season. QB Aaron Rodgers avoided pressure by spinning and moving to his left, and he somehow got enough on the throw to get it to the end zone. WR Jeff Janis leaped in front of Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson and hauled in the 41-yard TD, which tied the game and sent it to overtime. Janis, who also caught a 61-yard pass on fourth-and-20 earlier in the drive, finished with seven catches for 145 yards.
