Dansby's fumble return gives Cardinals 51-45 win

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Karlos Dansby's 17-yard fumble return for
a touchdown in overtime gave the Arizona Cardinals a 51-45 victory
over the Green Bay Packers in the highest-scoring playoff game in
NFL history.

Aaron Rodgers, who started the game with an interception but was
marvelous after that, was stripped by Michael Adams. The ball
careened off Rodgers' foot and into the hands of Dansby, who ran
untouched for the score.

Rodgers flung his helmet to the sideline in disgust as the
reigning NFC champion Cardinals rushed the field to celebrate.

It brought an abrupt end to a sensational passing duel to rival
any the NFL has seen between the playoff newcomer Rodgers and the
old master Kurt Warner.
