A SIX PACK OF CARDINALS-PACKERS KNOWLEDGE

BOTTOMLINE
        *PACKERS 24, CARDINALS 21: The Cardinals are no longer unbeaten and no longer the NFC’s top seed as the Packers moved to the top spot without their top three wide receivers, two starting offensive linemen and two best defenders entering the game before losing their starting tight end during the game.
        *THE CARDINALS LOSS MIGHT MEAN A JANUARY PLAYOFF GAME ON THE FROZEN TUNDRA: How could there be confusion after a time out is inexplicable, but somehow A.J. Green was in run-blocking mode and never turned around to see Kyler Murray’s pass?
        *THE CARDINALS COULDN’T GET OFF THE FIELD: The tackling was poor for the first time this season which resulted in Green Bay running 17 more plays (72-55) and dominating time of possession (37:35-22:25).
        *CHASE EDMONDS FINALLY GOT INTO THE END ZONE: His 11-yard touchdown run out of a Wildcat formation was not only his first touchdown this season, it was his first touchdown since Week Five of 2020.
        *THE PACKERS REMAIN THE TURNOVER MARGIN CHAMPS: With Aaron Rodgers as their starting quarterback, they have won 26 straight when on the plus side. Tonight, they had no turnovers while the Cardinals lost a fumble (Rondale Moore’s muffed punt recovered at the Cardinals three-yard line) and could not overcome two Murray interceptions – the first on the opening drive of the second half (off Moore’s hands) at the Cardinals 14-yard line and the final snap confusion with A.J. Green from the Cardinals five-yard line.
        *AARON RODGERS OWNS STATE FARM STADIUM: No explanation is necessary.
