welcome back to fox five sports. today's second game of n-f-l playoff action featured two teams who just faced each other three weeks ago. in that match-up, the cardinals dominated the packers, winning 38-8. today's game --- was decidedly different. there was a lot of yelling in our newsroom, during this game. head over to the twitter machine for more on that. let's skip right to the good parts. in the fourth quarter -- the packers lead by three. carson palmer is looking for fitz. it bounces off a defender, and into the hands of michael floyd! touchdown, arizona. cardinals grap a four-point lead. now we're down to the end of regulation. the packers already picked up a first down on fourth and twenty. and with five seconds left, rodgers heaves the hail mary pass, and..... .... jeff janis makes the grab! a 41-yard touchdown pass. the packers force overtime with that score. and then -- in overtime -- the cardinals get the ball first. and larry fitzgerald t ook
escapes, not one, not two, not three, not four, but five tacklers, before he's taken down near the goal line! he gallups 75 yards downfield, setting up this. palmer pitches the ball inside to fitzgerald, who does the rest. the cardinals get the touchdown. that ends the game. and arizona wins to advance to the n-f-c championship game. so after today's games, we know what half of the conference championship match-ups will look like. in the a-f-c -- the patriots will take on the winner of tomorrow's game between the steelers and broncos. in the n-f-c -- the cardinals will take on the winner of tomorrow's game between the seahawks and panthers. seattle and carolina kick-off just after ten o'clock tomorrow morning. pittsburgh and denver kick-off at 1:40. one last thing before we wrap up
the n-h-l's executive committee is expected to meet in new york, wednesday -- to discuss expansion bids by the city of las vegas and quebec city. this report comes from the las vegas review journal. the committee is not expected to make a decision, wednesday... ...but we should have a better idea of which way the league is leaning, following that meeting. the n-h-l last expanded in 2000, bringing columbus and minnesota into the league. wednesday's special meeting is a precursor to a meeting of the n- h-l's 30-member 'board of governors', scheduled for january 30th in nashville. that does it for sports. two more games tomorrow. hopefully, they're half as good as
