Saturday Night Live, Adam Driver spoof Cardinals-Packers game

Jan 18, 2016, 2:42 PM | Updated: Jan 19, 2016, 5:14 pm

The thrilling playoff battle between the Cardinals and Packers went into overtime on NBC. After Larry Fitzgerald willed Arizona to a 26-20 victory, the audience that stuck around following the most-viewed Saturday NFC Divisional Round game in history got treated to Saturday Night Live.

There, Star Wars actor Adam Driver first congratulated the Cardinals for their victory to a smattering of applause, but that wasn’t the only shoutout to Big Red. Soon, Driver was being featured as Cris Collinsworth in a spoof of the very game that had just been played.

The skit even had SNL’s Bobby Moynihan playing Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians.

Our only critique: Bruce Arians would be more Bruce Arians if he were wearing his favorite Kangol hat rather than a baseball cap. But such things are minor complaints.
