4. 1996 Divisional Playoff Green Bay 27 – San Francisco 17

A minor upset of sorts, the Packers took an early lead right out of the gate, finding themselves up 14-0 after just the first quarter.

Brett Favre threw for 222 yards in the first half alone and the Packers defense stood up to the challenge of containing a lethal Steve Young-to-Jerry Rice combo, especially considering Young had a whopping 65 attempts.

This game was a watershed game for the Packers as the team, led by a young Brett Favre, would take over dominance of the NFC after making a name for themselves in this game.

Not only did Favre, Reggie White and Mike Holmgren become household names, but this game brought about a resurgence of the Packers as an organization.
