Brian Urlacher put the team on his back and carried them to victory. He had somewhere around 19 tackles in the game and forced a fumble that Charles Tillman returned for a touchdown. That followed Mark Anderson had a sack and forced fumble of Matt Leinert while Mike Brown scooped up the fumble for a short score.
Not to be outdone, rookie sensation Devin Hester returned a punt 83 yards for the decisive score. What’s often overlooked is that Neil Rackers, who had kicked 40 field goals in 2005, missed a very make-able 41 yard FG attempt that would have won the game for the Cards in the closing seconds.
What really made this game special, besides the obvious, was Dennis Green’s post-game rant which has become legendary:
So go ahead and CROWN ‘EM!
