Green Bay Packers: Top 30 moments in franchise history

17 of 31

15. Super Bowl XXXII Loss

After starting the season 3-2, the 1997 Green Bay Packers finished the season 10-1 to give them some momentum going into the playoffs.

After defeating the Tampa Bay Buccanners and San Francisco 49ers, the Packers were slated to face the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Winning the Super Bowl in 1997, Green Bay was looking to repeat as Super Bowl champions, much like their first two Super Bowl championships in 1967 and 1968.

Denver featured quarterback , who had been to the Super Bowl three times previously without winning. Elway was on the verge of retirement, but still had something left in the tank to prove he was an established player in this league.

The Super Bowl proved to be a great match up, as the score was neck and neck throughout the evening. The Broncos were up 17-14 at halftime, to set the stage for an epic ending. The Packers tied the game at 17 in the second half before Broncos’ running back scored his second touchdown of the night to give the Broncos’ a 24-17 lead.

Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman tied the game at 24 in the fourth quarter with his second touchdown of the night, but Davis and the Broncos proved to be too strong as he scored his third touchdown of the game.

This marked the first and only Super Bowl loss in Packers history, and would be the final Super Bowl that Brett Favre would play.
