Cardinals vs. Packers live chat, 2015 NFL divisional playoff: full game open thread

New, comments

A spot in the NFC championship game is on the line when the Arizona Cardinals (13-3) and the Green Bay Packers (11-6) square off tonight at University of Phoenix Stadium. Enjoy the game!

Back on January 10, 2010, the Arizona Cardinals hosted the Green Bay Packers in one of the wildest wild card matchups the NFL has seen in recent years. Arizona, behind quarterback Kurt Warner, took a 31-10 lead in the second half, only to watch Aaron Rodgers and the Packers erase that three-score deficit, then two more one-score deficits to force overtime at 45-45.

In overtime, Rodgers was hit in the pocket, stripped, and then-Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby caught the ball out of the air and returned it for a touchdown. Final score: Cardinals 51, Packers 45.

Naturally, many of the faces have changed for these two franchises in the six years since - especially in Arizona - but the two teams are squaring off in the same stadium tonight, with the winner securing a spot in the NFC championship game. We bring that game up not because it is more relevant than the 38-8 drubbing the Cardinals put on the Packers two weeks ago, but because it was 100 percent more entertaining.

Let's hope for an entertaining game again between these two teams. This is your open thread for Cardinals-Packers. Who are you rooting for, Bills fans?
