Green Bay Packers won the game with a win, despite having their backs against walls.
The Cardinals, after stopping Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense on 4th-and-goal, needed to drive 99 yards to essentially win the game or at least get close enough to kick a field goal down three points to send the game into overtime. It looked as though that would happen with Kyler Murray at the controls.

Murray had three plays where he passed for at least 20 yards in order to keep the Cardinals close to him.
It seemed like the Cardinals would score a touchdown after the 12th drive. Murray threw A.J. Murray the ball fast. Green didn’t see the ball, however. Rasul Douglas took advantage of the misscue to pick up the ball in the endzone.
Green Bay defeated the Cardinals in dramatic fashion 24-21. Douglas waved good-bye to Cardinals fans and celebrated the win with small group of Packers fans seated in front row at the goal.
NFL fans were shocked.
PACKERS, CARDINALS PLAYERS INVOLVED in VICIOUS COLISION, LEAVE FIELD ON CAARTS
It was Arizona’s first loss of the season.
It was depleted at wide receiver when the Packers entered the game. No Davante Adams, Allen Lazard or Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Robert Tonyan went down even with a injury.
Rodgers came across Randall Cobb twice, an old favorite. With 184 yards passing and two touchdowns, the reigning MVP was 22 for 37. Cobb had three total 15-yard catches.
Aaron Jones was solid with 59 rush yards from 15 runs and seven receptions of 51 yards.
Green Bay has now won seven straight games, improving to 7-1.
Arizona’s defense stepped up when it needed to and gave Murray one last chance but unfortunately, it didn’t workout for the Cardinals.
Murray went 22-for-33 and had 274 passing yards. He also made two interceptions. DeAndre Hopkins suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of action for the majority of the match. Two catches were enough to get him to the end for 66 yards.
Arizona was led by Chase Edmonds with 30 rushing yardage on seven carries, and one touchdown. James Conner also scored two touchdowns.
