No evidence of a looming comeback

By Kevin Seifert

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- If you believe that the first five minutes of the third quarter is a critical portion of a game, you can conclude this wild-card game is over.

Sure, there is enough time for the Packers to catch up despite a 31-10 deficit. But after having the halftime portion to adjust, Green Bay’s defense looked no different on the Arizona’s first possession of the third quarter. The Cardinals moved 80 yards on six plays, culminating in Larry Fitzgerald’s 33-yard touchdown reception after colliding with cornerback Charles Woodson.

Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is approaching record-setting territory with a 153 passer rating at this point. Stranger things have happened, but I think we can all agree it’s not looking good for the Packers. We’ll keep you updated.
