It took a few extra minutes, but the lineup for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs is set.
The Arizona Cardinals beat the Green Bay Packers 51-45 in overtime Sunday on Karlos Dansby's 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown to round out the field.
"He (Michael Adams) made a sack, the ball went in the air, I just made a play on the ball," Dansby said.
Earlier, the Baltimore Ravens routed the Patriots 33-14.
Arizona (11-6) will face the NFC's top seed, the Saints (13-3), in New Orleans on Saturday. The reward for Baltimore (10-7) is playing the AFC's top seed, taking on the Colts (14-2) later Saturday in Indianapolis.
The Ravens' win at New England sends the Jets to San Diego. A Cowboys-Vikings matchup in Minnesota already was set after Dallas won a playoff game for the first time since 1996 on Saturday night.
The Jets, Ravens and Cowboys all made statements this weekend that they're in top form. The Cardinals seemed poised to do the same when they raced out to a 17-0 first-quarter lead. But the Packers (11-6) scored three fourth-quarter touchdowns to send the game to overtime.
"That's probably one of the best games ever played in the playoffs," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said.
