NFL: Packers end Arizona’s soaring

With the eighth win en suite, the Cardinals could have set a new club record in terms of success at the start of the season. The record remains with seven wins in a row that the current team shares with the one from the 1974 season. At that time, however, the club did not play in Arizona, but in St. Louis in the US state of Missouri.

The Miami Dolphins remain the only team that ended a season unbeaten. The team of coaching legend Don Shula won all 17 games of the season including the Super Bowl in the 1972/73 season. The New England Patriots were very close in the 2007/2008 season, but the team around superstar Tom Brady lost the final against the New York Giants after 18 wins en suite – incidentally in Glendale at the Cardinals’ home stadium.

Packers remain on the road to success

Led by superstar Rodgers, the Packers continued their triumphant advance. Green Bay, who was wiped off by the New Orleans Saints at 3:38 at the start of the season, took home the seventh win in a row and moved with the Cardinals at the top of the National Football Conference (NFC). Due to the direct duel won, the Packers would have the lead over Arizona in the seeding list if there was a tie at the end of the basic round.

“We’ll really celebrate on the way home,” Rodgers said in an interview with TV station Fox, “we’re enjoying the weekend.” The 37-year-old, who with Davante Adams, who failed due to a positive coronavirus test, and Allen Lazard had to pretend two of his best pass stations, contributed two touchdown passes to Randall Cobb to the away win. Running back Aaron Jones managed the third Packers touchdown.

Decide on ball losses

The decisive factor for Green Bay was the defensive, which allowed two touchdown runs by James Conner and one by Chase Edmonds, but also forced the Cardinals to lose a total of three balls. Two of them went to young star Murray, who also had to do without his top receiver DeAndre Hopkins for most of the time after he sustained a thigh injury in the game. Green Bay, however, remained without losing the ball.

Murray’s second interception also ended the game in favor of the Packers 15 seconds before the end. Ironically, Rasul Douglas, whom Green Bay had signed from the Cardinals’ training squad, intercepted a pass intended for AJ Green by Murray in the end zone. The defender’s decisive “pick” was preceded by a furious attack series by Arizona after Rodgers and Co.’s defense stopped shortly before the end zone. But the Cardinals were not granted their own happy ending.
