Carson Palmer ricochets go-ahead TD pass vs. Packers

Palmer came through! Sort of.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was having a strange night.

The veteran, who had been accurate all season, had already thrown two interceptions in Saturday’s NFC divisional-round game against the Green Bay Packers — both with his team deep in enemy territory. And with the Cardinals driving for a go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, Palmer came within centimeters of a third pick.

But then, on first-and-goal, Palmer dropped back and was trying to find Larry Fitzgerald just in front of the end zone, but the ball got tipped. Everyone held their breath until …

… Michael Floyd caught the deflection near the back of the end zone. Touchdown, Cardinals.
