There is something special about Packers vs. Cardinals playoff games.
For the second straight playoff meeting between these teams, the game ended with a Cardinals touchdown on the third play of overtime.
In the 2009 postseason, Karlos Dansby returned a fumble 17 yards on the third play of overtime. This time, it was Larry Fitzgerald who followed a 75-yard catch with a game-winning touchdown reception for the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are the first team to win two postseason games on an overtime touchdown.
On the Packers final drive of regulation, trailing 20-13, Aaron Rodgers connected with Jeff Janis for 60 yards on fourth-and-20 from the Packers 4-yard line. It was the longest fourth-down pass in the past 15 postseasons.
As time expired, Rodgers threw a Hail Mary into the end zone that was caught by Janis, and the Packers tied the game and sent it into overtime. The 41-yard pass was the first game-tying or game-winning touchdown pass to end regulation in NFL postseason history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Fitzgerald's 75-yard reception in overtime was the second-longest play from scrimmage in overtime of a postseason game in the past 20 seasons. The only longer play was Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas for 80 yards in 2011.
Carson Palmer was 8-of-12 for 176 yards targeting Fitzgerald, including 2-of-3 in overtime. Fitzgerald gained 100 of his 176 yards after the catch, including 61 on the 75-yard reception.
