As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately.

His 125 wins are good for second most in Packers history behind only the man for which the team's home stadium is named (Curly Lambeau).

McCarthy had been at the helm for quite awhile, as he began his tenure in 2006, and won a Super Bowl in 2011.

Arizona is now 3-9 on the season while Green Bay fell to 4-7-1 and by all metrics have fallen out of playoff contention. Fingers have been pointed at longtime head coach Mike McCarthy throughout the season as it seems the right plays are simply not being called.

"Teams that want any shot of having some postseason success have got to win these games".

Before the McCarthy news broke, he said in his postgame press conference that he wasn't sure what might happen down the stretch. It's not like we're getting blown out in a bunch of games.

Rodgers got the ball back with 1:49 remaining in the game after the Cardinals took a 20-17 lead, and he led the Packers into field-goal range.

The team has just lost to the Arizona Cardinals, 20-17. The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, majority in the second half.

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

Kumerow joined the Packers' practice squad during the final week of the 2017 regular season and made a strong bid at a roster spot in training camp with six catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in his first two preseason games last summer.

"We're just not executing well, it's the same things over and over", Rodgers said.

If they were going to change the narrative on their season, a 36-yard pass to Randall Cobb on third-and-11 in the fourth quarter wouldn't have been wiped out by a holding call on fill-in right tackle Jason Spriggs.

A 16-yard completion to Adams with 13:42 left in the second quarter gave Rodgers the team record for attempts without an interception.
