The Arizona Cardinals overcame a wild ending to regulation and put their season on Larry Fitzgerald's back in overtime, winning Saturday's NFC divisional playoff battle with the Green Bay Packers 26-20 on his game-winning touchdown.

Arizona rallied back from a 13-7 deficit in the fourth to take a commanding 20-13 lead, and it looked destined for victory until Aaron Rodgers got the ball late. Victory seemed imminent up until the final second, when Rodgers escaped and threw an improbable Hail Mary to Jeff Janis to send the game to overtime.

Instead of wilting, the Cardinals got the ball first and didn't give it back. Carson Palmer hit Fitzgerald for 75 yards to open up the extra period, and his third touchdown pass of the game went Fitzgerald's way to secure the first playoff win of Palmer's career.

One of the greatest playoff games in NFL history won't be soon forgotten, so take a look below at live updates from the game.
