Neil Rackers kicks the game winning field goal in overtime, sending the Arizona Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl. The Cardinals currently have the longest championship drought in the NFL at over 60 years.
Kurt Warner threw for 428 yards and one touchdown, completing 66 percent of his throws. He did have three interceptions that allowed the Eagles to hang around. One of those turnovers came in the redzone.
Donovan McNabb orchestrated a heroic drive that allowed David Akers to tie the game with one second left in regulation. McNabb had 358 yards passing with two touchdowns.
Larry Fitzgerald was kept in check to the tune of five catches for only 77 yards. This was the first playoff game that he did not reach the 100-yard mark. He was a step ahead of Asante Samuel on this completion for 13 yards.
Reggie Brown was overshadowed by DeSean Jackson but he came up with a very tough grab in the final drive that sent the game into overtime.
Brian Westbrook lead all players in rushing but it was not enough to put the Eagles in the win column. Westbrook's 121 yards rushing will be forgotten, whereas him being stopped at the goal line on a two-point conversion will not be.
Edgerrin James walked right into the endzone untouched in the second quarter.
Brian Dawkins put a crushing hit on Anquan Boldin who was just barely able to go after injuring himself in the Wild Card game against Atlanta. He caught six balls for 58 yards, including holding on to this one.
Domique Rodgers-Cromartie continued to play like a veteran rather than a rookie, picking off a pass from McNabb.
Leonard Pope may have been the beneficiary of an injury, but he took full advantage of the opportunity. He had a 100-yard performance and came up big in the drive that lead to the game winning field goal.
The Arizona Cardinals are heading to Tampa for their first Super Bowl. Neil Rackers connected on six of six field goal attempts including the 37-yard try in overtime to win the game.
