5. The replay game – Nov. 5, 1989 – Packers 14, Bears 13
Don Majkowski led the Packers to a stunning come-from-behind victory against the Bears, their first since 1984; however, it almost never happened. He threw a late touchdown to Sterling Sharpe, which was initially called back because the referee said the Majik Man stepped past the line of scrimmage when he threw the pass. The subsequent replay review overturned the penalty which resulted in a touchdown for Green Bay. The call was so controversial that the NFL changed the rule, clarifying when a quarterback is considered past the line of scrimmage. Also, Bears Coach Mike Ditka was so enraged over the decision he ordered the Bears media staff to put an asterisk next to this game in the Bears’ official media guide the following season.
