Former South Carolina tight end Jared Cook had one of the most incredible catches in all of football. And it set up the game-winning score to push the Green Bay Packers past the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s NFC divisional round playoff game.
With seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and the Packers tied 31-all with the Cowboys, Cook hauled in an amazing Aaron Rodgers pass, and somehow kept his feet inbounds for a 36-yard reception.
“He made a hell of a catch,” Rodgers said on Cook’s heroics.

Cook came over from the Rams in the offseason. Cook was at South Carolina from 2005-08 and was taken in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He ended Sunday with 6 catches for a team-high 104 yards and a touchdown.
The Packers will take on the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday, with the winner advancing to Super Bowl 51 in Houston on Feb. 5.
