Murphy, in a statement, said the 2018 season "has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers".
"It was clearly a very disappointing loss, it was a game we needed to win", coach Mike McCarthy said. The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, majority in the second half.
A December game against a warm-weather team with snow falling usually means an automatic victory for the Packers.
The Packers sport one of the most desirable coaching destinations entering the offseason, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers - now 35 years old - and a young roster with handfuls of talent. "But we missed a number of opportunities throughout the game".
If the Packers were going to show the National Football League they weren't as bad as their record indicated, Rodgers would have hit Davante Adams in stride for a 59-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. "We're not executing the right way", Rodgers said.
Rookie Chase Edmonds ran for two touchdowns for Arizona. "Mostly, I'm just happy we were able to come out victorious".
U.S. and China 'will impose no new tariffs'
At Trump's request, China agreed to label fentanyl a controlled substance due to its contribution to the U.S. opioid crisis. The stock market has wobbled this year amid those concerns, and would probably sink if Trump went from 10% tariffs to 25%.
McCarthy has been on thin ice with the franchise for quite some time, as the team has only reached the NFC Championship game once since the Super Bowl win in 2010.
"It was different. I had to get a feel for it at first, but it was fun", Alexander said.
If they were going to change the narrative on their season, a 36-yard pass to Randall Cobb on third-and-11 in the fourth quarter wouldn't have been wiped out by a holding call on fill-in right tackle Jason Spriggs. Instead, they were backed up, missed a desperation heave down the field and punted the ball back to the Cardinals, whose lead was a touchdown with 13:58 to play.
This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now.
Only 15 seconds from halftime, Mason Crosby kicked a 32-yard field goal for the Packers. "We got enough reps during the week, so I didn't think it was that bad of a transition".
If ever there was an example of a team that looked to have given up on its season, this was it.
