3. The blocked field goal – Nov. 7, 1999 – Bears 14, Packers 13
The Packers came into this game as nine-point favorites, but were facing a very emotional Chicago Bears team that lost the legendary Walter Payton six days earlier. The Packers, down one point with 17 seconds to go, still had a chance to escape with a victory after Brett Favre led them into field goal range. They lined up for the game-winning field goal. Unfortunately, the field goal attempt was blocked and the Bears would leave victorious. The Packers would end up missing the playoffs by one game that year and head coach Ray Rhodes would be fired, becoming the only single-year coach in the history of the Green Bay Packers.
