Arizona Cardinals vs Green Bay Packers: Game balls
By Scott Allen
Game ball #2
For awhile on Saturday night, it looked like Palmer was not going to win his first playoff game. Amazing this far into his career he was still looking for that first win. Then he turned on the jets and with a little luck, ended up with a very good evening.
Sure, his 25-41 for 349 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions looks good on paper. However it was the play in overtime that was exhibit A as to why the Cardinals would not be where they are without him.
On that first play, Palmer looked sacked for sure. However he bounced off a couple of guys then scrambled off right. Then, he found Fitz all the way over on the other side of the field. Palmer had to throw across his body. Palmer made that play happen. His mobility of all things put the Cardinals in game-winning position a couple of plays later.
