He did it again.

With five seconds left on the clock and his team down 20-13 Saturday night in the divisional round, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers fired a 41-yard Hail Mary to Jeff Janis while evading a swarm of Arizona Cardinals.

Rodgers put everything he had into the bomb as Janis skied above Patrick Peterson and held on while Rashad Johnson tried to punch it out.

Mason Crosby avoided disaster and hit the ensuing extra point, sending the game at University of Phoenix Stadium into overtime at 20-20.

Few other quarterbacks in the history of the NFL could make that play. Now, Rodgers has made it twice.
