Arizona Cardinals: Josh Rosen throws interception in NFC Wild Card win over Green Bay Packers

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen threw an interception with 15 seconds left on his team’s last-ditch drive as the Green Bay Packers held on to beat them 19-16.

The Cardinals were leading 16-13 when the rookie threw the game-ending throw to safety Sean Davis.

Earlier in the week, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy criticised Rosen for his poise and emotional approach.

His most memorable moment came in the second half when his team trailed 16-3.

Rosen became the first Cardinals rookie to complete at least 60% of his passes on his first start since 1956 when he managed 57% from his 39-of-55 pass effort.

The Arizona rookie also led the team in rushing with 23 yards as they recorded a win against a franchise who had won 22 of their previous 25 home games.

Earlier in the week, Arizona coach Steve Wilks said he had told Rosen to play “no games” and in the most violent sporting contest in the US, he produced the performance of a promising young quarterback.

The Cardinals trailed 15-6 with just a minute and a half of regular-season remaining when Rosen’s 84-yard pass to Larry Fitzgerald got his team within one score.

However, Green Bay responded with two consecutive touchdowns to clinch their place in the play-offs.

This was Arizona’s third consecutive loss and may be Wilks’ final game as coach.
