5. Packers at Bears (Week 17, 2013)
The lone regular season game on the list, but one of the most thrilling and memorable games to date. A game to determine the NFC North champion, and the loser? Well, the loser would miss the playoffs.
For the Packers, the timing couldn’t have been better, Aaron Rodgers (broken collarbone, missed seven games) and Randall Cobb (fractured fibula, missed 10 games) made their long-awaited return to the field.
The NFC North battle went down to the wire. Defense wasn’t much of a factor. The Packers and Bears combined for 61 points and five lead changes.
Down 26-28, Rodgers led the Packers on a dramatic 15 play, 86-yard game-winning drive. On fourth-and-8 (the third fourth down of the drive) with 46 seconds left, Rodgers hit Cobb for a soul crushing 48-yard touchdown pass.
On the play, Packers’ fullback John Kuhn made a key block on future Packer Julius Peppers that allowed Rodgers enough time to heave to ball to Cobb, and end the Bears season.
