Aaron Rodgers forces OT with incredible Hail Mary

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had everyone buzzing with his 41-yard desperation toss that resulted in a game-tying touchdown to force overtime against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.

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.

While NBA star LeBron James also took a moment to send congratulations to the legendary quarterback.

And in keeping with the celebrity theme, the play left Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays in a state of disbelief.

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.
