More specifically, the Cardinals’ defense has been all over Aaron Rodgers. On Arizona’s sixth sack of the game, which came in the third quarter, Rodgers coughed up the football, and defensive end Cory Redding took advantage, scooping it up and running it back for a touchdown. Redding punctuated the run-back with a stiff arm of Eddie Lacy.
The score gave Arizona a 31–0 lead over the Packers. Green Bay made it a 31–8 game on its next drive.
Rodgers fumbled again late in the third quarter on a sack by Dwight Freeney and Jerraud Powers ran it back for another touchdown.
