Voting To See Cardinals' Best Again

YouTube agreement will make three of Cards' top games available to all

Going back in time to relive a moment in the moment is one of the best aspects about televised sports.

Now the NFL, thanks to their new deal with YouTube, is giving fans a chance to do that with three historical telecasts from each team – and they are asking fans to give their input. The Cardinals' games are all from their time in Arizona, and relatively recent.

There are five choices to pick three, and the poll can be found by clicking here.

Voting runs through June 27.

A quick look at the five options:

NFC Wild Card playoff game, Jan. 2, 1999. Cardinals 20, Cowboys 7: The Cardinals had come off a dramatic final three games of the regular season just to make the postseason. Then they went into Dallas and shocked the aging but still strong Cowboys. Cornerback Aeneas Williams had two interceptions of Troy Aikman, Adrian Murrell broke off a 74-yard run (and outgained Emmitt Smith on the ground, 95-74) as the Cards delivered their greatest moment in the desert up until that point.

Regular-season finale, Dec. 28, 2003. Cardinals 18, Vikings 17: The Nate Poole game. The Cardinals were finishing a terrible season – a loss, in fact, would have given them the No. 1 overall pick – and the Vikings had to win to make the playoffs. It was playing out as expected when Minnesota was up 17-6 with two minutes left. But Josh McCown hit tight end Steve Bush for a touchdown, and running back Damien Anderson recovered the onside kick. The Cards got deep inside Minnesota territory, only to have a sack force McCown to scramble on fourth-and-goal from the 28-yard line on the final play of the game. Unbelievably, Poole grabbed the ball in the corner of the end zone. No top pick for the Cards in the draft, but with the third overall choice, they took .

NFC Championship, Jan. 18, 2009. Cardinals 32, Eagles 25: The improbable season reached its improbable heights. Playing at home despite being the No. 4 seed, the Cards built a 24-6 lead, somehow lost it, 25-24, and then Kurt Warner directed a championship-type drive for the game-winning points – a slip screen to running back Tim Hightower, who fell over the goal line as he was tackled. The Cardinals hung on to reach their only Super Bowl.

NFC Wild Card playoff game, Jan. 10, 2010. Cardinals 51, Packers 45 (OT): A year later, the Cardinals hosted the Packers and again, gave away a big early lead. Both Warner and Aaron Rodgers were fantastic. In his final home game. Warner finished with more touchdown passes (five) than incompletions (four) in one of the greatest performances ever for a QB. Still, kicker Neil Rackers missed a field goal at the end of regulation, and Rodgers missed a wide-open Greg Jennings in overtime that likely would have lost the game. Cornerback Michael Adams made Rodgers pay, forcing a Rodgers fumble on the blitz that linebacker Karlos Dansby picked up and ran in the end zone for the game-winning points.

NFC Divisional playoff game, Jan. 16, 2016: Cardinals 26, Packers 20 (OT): Another unforgettable overtime classic between Arizona and Green Bay. A tipped TD pass to Michael Floyd. A Hail Mary touchdown pass by Rodgers on the final play of regulation. A legendary 75 catch-and-run by Fitzgerald to set up a TD shovel pass to Fitz to win the game. Plus, it was all immortalized in “All or Nothing.”
