20-17: Packers fall to Cardinals at Lambeau Field

Joe Philbin

That was when the Packers officially made a decision to call it quits on the McCarty tenure after 13 seasons, which included a Super Bowl championship in 2010.

The Arizona Cardinals stunned the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with a 20-17 win at snowy Lambeau Field in what proved to be Mike McCarthy's last game as coach of the club. Green Bay finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs in 2017, when Aaron Rodgers missed extensive time with a broken collarbone. He touched the ball 11 times in the first half and then all but disappeared until midway through the fourth quarter.

Instead, the team announced in a brief statement that it has "parted ways" with McCarthy and named Joe Philbin interim head coach.

The Packers (4-7-1) now might have to start that same rebuilding process, and given their uninspired performance with the season on the line, that might include major organizational changes. "As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Packers CEO and President Mark Murphy said in a statement.

The Packers will move forward and begin a highly anticipated coaching search.

Injury updates: Randall Cobb made his return to the starting lineup after missing three games due to a hamstring injury.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.

"We didn't play well today", McCarthy said. "I'm not going to act like I know what the hell I'm going to do tomorrow when they get in here. But we missed a number of opportunities throughout the game". They are playing for coach Steve Wilks... but it raises questions about the future of coach Mike McCarthy. "We're not executing the right way", Rodgers said. "We all have a part in that and we've all picked our time to mess up a third down".

Green Bay also had its longest kickoff return of the season on Sunday with running back Jamaal Williams bringing one back for 30 yards in the second quarter.

"We did that! We did that", some emotional players yelled.
