January, 10, 2010: The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals put on a show like no other in the NFC Wild Card Game in Glendale, Arizona.
The Packers were led by Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and the Cardinals had veteran gunslinger Kurt Warner. Oddly enough the highest scoring playoff game of all time would be decided by a defensive touchdown when Karlos Dansby caught Rodgers' fumble out of the air and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown to give the Cardinals a wild 51-45 overtime win.
The previous high for combined points in a postseason game was 95 in Philadelphia's 58-37 win over Detroit on Dec. 30, 1995.
That stats for the game were unbelievable. Warner finished with more touchdowns (5) than incompletions (4). Rodgers had 423 yards passing, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception, but the costly fumble that finished the game.
Watch the highlights of this incredible shootout to really do it justice:
The Cardinals would lose the following week to the eventual Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. However, on this day 5 years ago, we witnessed one of the best playoff games in NFL history. Here's to you Cardinals and Packers.
