Packers: Ranking the five greatest wins of the decade
These games just missed out on the top five:
Aaron Rodgers throws six TDs in first half vs. Bears (2014)
This will go down as one of Aaron Rodgers’ finest performances. He threw six touchdown passes in the first half to give the Packers a 42-0 lead at halftime. He just missed out on a seventh in the third quarter before Mike McCarthy pulled him out of the game.
Matt Flynn leads dramatic comeback vs. Cowboys (2013)
Down 26-3 at halftime, the Packers’ season looked done. But nobody told Matt Flynn, who was filling in for an injured Rodgers. Flynn threw four second-half touchdowns, and Eddie Lacy ran in the game-winner to give Green Bay an unlikely 37-36 road victory.
Dez Bryant doesn’t catch the football as Packers beat Cowboys in divisional round (2014)
A season later, the two teams met at Lambeau Field in the divisional round. The Packers fought back from 21-13 down as Rodgers played with an injured calf. The famous Dez Bryant non-catch gave the Packers possession late on with a lead, and they didn’t give the ball back to punch their ticket to the NFC Championship Game.
Davante Adams scores last-second game-winner vs. Cowboys (2017)
It’s another win against the Cowboys here. This time in 2017. In an entertaining game at AT&T Stadium, Davante Adams caught a touchdown from Rodgers in the final seconds to give Green Bay the win.
Packers take down Patriots in classic at Lambeau (2014)
A rare meeting between Rodgers and Tom Brady. Rodgers threw for 368 yards and two touchdowns while Adams had a breakout performance. The Packers held onto an impressive 26-21 win over the eventual Super Bowl champs.
Aaron Rodgers perfect passer rating vs. Raiders (2019)
We got to see a vintage Rodgers performance this season, as he threw for 429 yards and five touchdowns and also scored a rushing touchdown to give the Packers a big win over the Oakland Raiders. Rodgers had a perfect passer rating for the first time.
Aaron Rodgers throws four TDs in dominant win vs. Vikings (2016)
It was Christmas Eve 2016 and the Packers were attempting to run the table and win the NFC North. They took a giant step towards doing so with a dominant win against the Vikings. Rodgers was at his MVP best, throwing for four touchdowns. Jordy Nelson was unstoppable with nine catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns.
