Locally made beer, cheese, jalapeños, ice cream and other products are on the line Saturday night, along with the playoff lives of two of the NFL's best teams.

The Green Bay Packers will battle the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Divisional playoff round in Glendale, Ariz., and the two teams' top fans in their executive home offices have placed a bet on the game.

“Packer Nation is ready to cheer on our team and we know the Packers have what it takes to defeat the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow,” said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in a statement.

He's ponying up Andes mints from his hometown of Delavan, Wis., Leinenkugel beer and Wisconsin-made cheese and sausage. That will get shipped to Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona should the Cardinals win.

In response, Gov. Ducey has promised Kilt Lifter beer, Cold Stone ice cream and fresh jalapeños for a Packers win.
