The Green Bay Packers beat the Dallas Cowboys to advance to the NFC Championship with the help of tight end Jared Cook.

Tied at 31-31, with 12 seconds to play, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers facing 3rd-and-20 from their own 33, with an overtime looking more and more likely.

Rodgers took the snap peeled out to his left and threw a laser that hit Cook along the sideline. While Cook made the catch, it was initially called out.

However, a referee overruled the initial call and ruled it a catch. Replays then showed that Cook made perhaps the best catch of his career, corralling the ball over the sideline as he balanced on his toes with both feet inbounds.


A 35-yard reception that put the Packers in field-goal range. Incredible.

Another look:

Mason Crosby then kicked a 50-yard field goal as time expired to win the game for the Packers. 

Cook had a monster game, catching six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown. No catch was bigger than his game-changing, tippy-toe catch that set up the win for the Packers.

Green Bay will take on Atlanta in the NFC Championship next Sunday.
