Packers vs. Cardinals final score, results: Green Bay hands Arizona 1st loss with INT on final play

The Packers-Cardinals “Thursday Night Football” game lived up to the hype. Green Bay (7-1) handed Arizona (7-1) its first loss of the season after Rasul Douglas intercepted a Kyler Murray pass in the end zone on the last play of the game. The Packers won 24-21.

The last few minutes of the game were a roller-coaster. With 4:46 remaining, Aaron Jones’ rush into the end zone was called a touchdown but then overturned upon review and marked short. The Packers then received a delay of game penalty because they had already used up all their timeouts. Two plays after that, Green Bay turned the ball over on downs at the Arizona 1 after Aaron Rodgers’  pass on fourth-and-goal was knocked down.

The Cardinals got the ball back with 3:23 left, needing at least a field goal to head into overtime. After long Murray completions to Christian Kirk and A.J. Green, followed by a short gain by Chase Edmonds, they were in field goal territory. Arizona got all the way down to the Green Bay 5, but Murray then threw the end-zone interception, a pass intended for an unsuspecting Green, that ended the game.

Dillon was the game’s rushing leader with 78 yards. Arizona’s DeAndre Hopkins, despite being sidelined for some of the game with an injury, was the leading receiver with 66 yards.
