Packers’ postseason hopes fade with stunning loss to Cardinals


While he acknowledges his National Football League debut was somewhat bittersweet considering the Packers' 20-17 loss to Arizona, he hopes to build upon the experience heading into these next four December games. They are playing for coach Steve Wilks... but it raises questions about the future of coach Mike McCarthy.

Crosby pushed his kick wide right, with the flags atop Lambeau blowing in toward the field at the time of the play.

"It was clearly a very disappointing loss, it was a game we needed to win", coach Mike McCarthy said.

The Packers' defense did its job much of the day, but Larry Fitzgerald hauled in a miracle 32-yard grab to extend what would be Arizona's game-winning drive.

Gonzalez just joined the team this week after Phil Dawson was placed on injured reserve.

George H. W. Bush dead at 94
Bush's death came seven months after that of his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush , to whom he was married for 73 years. He was the 41st USA president between 1989 and 1993, after serving two terms as vice-president to Ronald Reagan.

The Packers fell to 4-7-1 on the season with today's loss, all but eliminating themselves from the playoffs.

Betting market: One would expect the public to be all over the Packers in an Aaron Rodgers-Josh Rosen showdown. The Packers converted just three of 14 third down attempts. At least last Sunday at Minnesota, Rodgers only missed Adams by an inch or two on an overthrown touchdown. So we're going to do what we always do; we're going to represent the Packers the right way, I know that. "We got enough reps during the week, so I didn't think it was that bad of a transition".

A December game against a warm-weather team with snow falling usually means an automatic victory for the Packers.

Rodgers said his focus was getting his teammates to "play with that pride" and focus on the next four games. "As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Chief Executive Officer Mark Murphy said in the statement.

"Yeah, a lot probably". When the Packers officially made the announcement on Twitter, several fans didn't hold back in sharing how joyful they felt about the news. Rodgers attempted 50 passes but completed only 31 of them for 233 yards and a touchdown.
