As painful as it is not seeing the Packers playing in the Super Bowl this year. There are at least some good Super Bowl moments that we can all look at and be proud of.
With Super Bowl LVII a week away. Let’s take a look at some memorable Super Bowl moments from the Packers four Super Bowl wins.
5. Favre to Rison (Super Bowl XXXI)
Brett Favre wasted no time in getting the Packers on the scoreboard in Super Bowl XXXI. On the second play of the Packers first possession, Favre called an audible and threw a perfect ball to Andre Rison for a 54 yard touchdown and a quick 7- 0 lead over the New England Patriots. This touchdown set the tone of the game.
4. Rodgers to Jennings (Super Bowl XLV)
Late in the fourth quarter the Packers had the ball and the lead but the Pittsburgh Steelers were within 3 points. With Aaron Rodgers facing the 3rd down and 10, from inside his own territory, Rodgers threw a bullet to Greg Jennings for 31 yards. This would lead to a Mason Crosby field goal and a 31-25 lead over the Steelers.
3. Howard takes it all the way (Super Bowl XXXI)
With the Patriots just scoring to make it 27-21, the Packers needed a game changing play to shift the momentum. Desmond Howard wasted no time in doing that. Howard took the ensuing kickoff and ran 99 yards for the touchdown. From there the Packers converted a two point conversion and never looked back winning 35-21 over the New England Patriots.
2. The Packers Defense makes a Stop (Super Bowl XLV)
With less than 2 minutes left in Super Bowl XLV the Steelers offense had a chance to take the lead and win their 7th Super Bowl. The Steelers drove their own 33 yard line but faced a 4th and 5. Ben Roethlisberger threw a pass to Mike Wallace that would have been enough for the first down but instead Tramon Williams broke up the pass and the Steelers turned it over on downs. With no timeouts left the Packers ran out the clock and won Super Bowl XLV giving Aaron Rodgers his first Super Bowl Championship.
1. Max McGee scores first touchdown in Super Bowl history ( Super Bowl I)
We all know the story that McGee was out the night before and probably hungover. With Boyd Dowler hurt early in the first quarter, McGee stepped in. On their second possession Bart Starr threw a pass that was a little behind McGee but he somehow caught it with one hand and ran in 37 yards for the first touchdown of the game and the first touchdown in Super Bowl history. The Packers would go on to win Super Bowl I 35-10.
Honorable mentions include Nick Collins pick six (Super Bowl XLV), Antonio Freeman 81 yard TD (Super Bowl XXXI)——————
