It was none other than Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers who dealt the Arizona Cardinals their first loss of the 2021 season.

Cornerback Rasul Douglas intercepted Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray’s pass in the end zone with 12 seconds left to clinch a 24-21 victory Thursday night.

“They’re well in field goal range so right now it’s like, ‘let’s see if we can get seven and end it,'” Douglas said. “So I gotta make a play. He threw it to my guy and I just made a play. That was probably the first time I won a game like that, so it was a shocking feeling,”

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was 22-of-37 for 184 yards with two touchdowns. wide receiver Randall Cobb caught both TD passes. Since 2020 began, Rodgers is now 9-0 in primetime games, with 28 touchdown passes and just one interception.

“We excelled in a lot of phases,” Rodgers said. “We just have to clean up some things in the red zone and put a team away like we had a chance to do tonight.”

Meanwhile, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury reflected on what happened during the last seconds of the game.

“We didn’t run the route and the guy made a good play,” said Kingsbury. “It wasn’t the route that we thought we had checked and so we’ve got to communicate better in those situations.”

The Cardinals now get a mini-bye before traveling to Levi’s Stadium to face the San Francisco 49ers, while the Packers are up against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.
