Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray appeared to be leading the unbeaten Cardinals toward another comeback win before throwing a pass toward veteran wide receiver AJ Green with under 30 seconds remaining in the contest.
Murray threw a dart toward Green, Green seemingly didn’t realize the pass was coming toward him and Green Bay Packers defensive back Rasul Douglas tracked the pass and picked it off to secure a crucial win for the Packers in NFC conference play.

As Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers pointed out after the game, Douglas spent a handful of weeks on the Arizona practice squad this season before being signed by Green Bay and activated to the Packers’ active roster before Monday night’s game.
Douglas put together a spectacular performance for the Packers, leading the team with nine tackles, all solo, two passes defended and the game-winning interception in the end zone with less than 30 seconds left on the clock.
The Cardinals pick up their first loss of the season, falling to 7-1, while the Packers improve to 7-1 in a battle of NFC powerhouses.
