1. Packers beat Cowboys with 11 seconds to go

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more dramatic than the Packers’ wild victory over the Cowboys in the divisional round last year, Aaron Rodgers had other ideas.

Just nine months after Mason Crosby hit a walk-off field goal to send Green Bay to the NFC Championship Game, we witnessed another thriller inside AT&T Stadium.

Down by three points with little over a minute remaining in regulation, the Packers needed some Rodgers magic to save the game. A field goal would force overtime, but the two-time MVP had loftier ambitions.

The drive was a thing of beauty.

First Rodgers fired to Davante Adams for a pickup of 14 yards. He then found Martellus Bennett for another 14. An incompletion stopped the clock before Aaron Jones surprised the Cowboys with a run of 15 yards and crucially out of bounds.

Now in field goal range, Rodgers didn’t like what he saw in front of him and took off, escaping a sack to pick up 18 yards with his legs. Two plays later he found Adams in the end zone for the game-winning touchdown, leaving just 11 seconds for the Cowboys to respond.
