Research Notes

  • In each of Aaron Rodgers last 3 postseason losses, he led a game-tying drive in the final 6 minutes of the 4th quarter. In each instance, Rodgers wouldn't even touch the ball again as the opposing team possessed the ball the rest of the game.

  • Carson Palmer found Larry Fitzgerald for 75 yards in overtime on a Packers blitz. Palmer was 5-of-8 targeting Fitzgerald on blitzes Saturday and 3-of-7 targeting all other Cardinals.

  • Larry Fitzgerald gained 100 of his 176 yards after the catch, including 61 on the 75-yard reception. Fitzgerald had 100 yards after the catch in a game just once in the last 10 years prior to Saturday (108 in 2014 Week 8).

  • Larry Fitzgerald now has 3 career postseason games with at least 150 receiving yards. That's the most by any player in the Super Bowl era, breaking a tie with Jerry Rice, Fred Biletnikoff and Steve Smith Sr.

  • Larry Fitzgerald (ARI): 176 Rec yds is most by Cardinals player in a postseason game post-merger (since 1970)

  • The Cardinals won on the 3rd play of overtime after the Packers tied the game late in the 4th quarter Saturday.When these teams last met in the postseason in 2009, the Cardinals won 3 plays into overtime after the Packers tied the game late.

  • Jeff Janis is the Packers player with 140 Rec yds and 2 TD in a playoff game since John Jefferson in 1982.

  • Since the merger, the only Cardinals players to catch 2 Rec TD in a playoff game are Larry Fitzgerald (3 times), Early Doucet and Michael Floyd
