Aaron Rodgers forces OT with incredible Hail Mary
Packers QB's desperation play not enough in playoff loss to Cardinals
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had everyone buzzing with his 41-yard desperation toss that forced overtime as the clock expired against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.
But the completion to Jeff Janis was more than just an incredible play, it was also a scenario that has never happened, according to ESPN.

Furthermore, the must-see moment completely destroyed Twitter for a considerable period of time.
As an example, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres was moved to profess her love for Rodgers.
I ❤️ Aaron Rodgers—@TheEllenShow
While NBA star LeBron James also took a moment to send congratulations to the legendary quarterback.
Great game! Always Salute to my boy <a href="https://twitter.com/AaronRodgers12">@AaronRodgers12</a>! You're a legend—@KingJames
And in keeping with the celebrity theme, the play left Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays in a state of disbelief.
What the hell did <a href="https://twitter.com/AaronRodgers12">@AaronRodgers12</a> just do!?!? Can't even believe this.—@Evan3Longoria
However, the excitement of the moment soon passed, when Larry Fitzgerald's impressive 75-yard catch and run set up his game-winning touchdown as the Cardinals escaped with a 26-20 victory to advance to the NFC championship game.
