During the regular season they had fought their way to a 13-3 record, a #2 seed in the conference playoffs and home field advantage in the divisional round. And they’d need their home crowd in this one, from start to finish during this most watched game in divisional playoff history.
The storied franchise from the Wisconsin was in town, after an impressive Wild Card round victory the previous week. Arizona would take an early lead, but their opponent’s star captain quarterback took a 13-7 lead. The home team jumped ahead and seemed likely to pull out a 20-13 victory, but the Packers went 90 yards on two pass completions in just under a minute, scoring with a memorable Hail Mary toss that brought the game into overtime. However, the home team’s fans didn’t have to wait very long to cheer their team to victory, witnessing this amazing catch and run from their leader and wide receiver. Arizona advanced with a 26-20 OT win.
