Watch: Former WVU DB Rasul Douglas Seals Huge Packers Win on TNF

Published

on

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.
