The short-handed Packers ended the Cardinals' perfect start to the season while extending their winning streak to seven games following a 24-21 victory in the NFL on Thursday.
With 12 seconds remaining, Douglas was on hand to thwart the home team as he snatched the ball in the corner of the end zone from Kyler Murray's pass.

Douglas, who was previously with the Cardinals' practice squad, was only in action in the absence of Jaire Alexander and Kevin King.
"This is why I love this squad," Rodgers told Fox.
"The guy who made the pick was with them for four weeks. He was on the street, we brought him in, he's starting for us.
"He's a great dude and he's really meshed well with our team, and to come up with a play like that with 15 seconds left is incredible."
Rodgers, without wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard, was 22-of-37 passing for 184 yards as Matt LaFleur's men got the job done in gritty fashion in Arizona.
"This is a scrappy team," Rodgers said. "This is a tough, physical, gritty team.
"I'm so proud of our guys. I'm so proud of our line. I'm having so much fun with these guys.
"We ran the ball well, we knew we could. It was tough in the passing game at times, but [Randall] Cobb came up with a couple big touchdown catches."
