It’s a review of the 2009 NFL season…free of Tiger Woods references…well, except that one.

7. Machine Gun Funk: The Cardinals outduel the Packers in an NFC playoff shootout overtime shootout in the desert, 51-45.

In what proved to be the final playoff victory in Kurt Warner’s NFL career, Arizona had one bullet too many for the Green Bay Packers in an NFC wild card game.

A game that featured the most points ever scored in a playoff game , ended in overtime on a 17-yard fumble return for a score by Arizona’s Karlos Dansby.

Adding to his Hall of Fame credentials, Warner finished 29 of 33 for 379 yards and five touchdowns. His counterpart, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, was not quite as fortunate.

He completed 28 of 42 throws for 423 yards and four touchdowns but committed two costly turnovers that led to 14 Cardinal points.

Green Bay erased a 31-10 deficit in the second half but despite winning the coin toss in overtime, made another untimely mistake that sent them packing for the season.
