15. Carson Palmer implodes in NFC Championship Game

Publish date:

The Cardinals’ first-half in the NFC title game: Punt, punt, punt, fumble, touchdown, fumble, interception. Carson Palmer? He was responsible for all of those first-half turnovers. By halftime, Arizona trailed 24–7, and it didn’t get any better from there—Palmer ended his epic collapse with three more interceptions, including a pick-six, and the Panthers cruised to the Super Bowl with a 49–15 win. — Amy Parlapiano
