4. NFC North winner on fourth down vs. Bears (2013)

Aaron Rodgers had missed half the season with a broken collarbone, while Randall Cobb had been out for most of the year with a significant leg injury.

Despite that, the other three NFC North teams decided it would be a good idea to keep the Packers alive in the playoff race.

Big mistake.

Rodgers and Cobb returned for a Week 17 trip to Soldier Field, with the winner taking the NFC North title and the loser missing the playoffs.

It was fourth-and-8 from the Bears’ 48-yard line. If the Packers didn’t get a first down, their season was over. They got more than that, with Rodgers finding Cobb deep downfield for a 48-yard touchdown that sealed the NFC North title for the Packers.

3. Aaron Rodgers dominates Falcons in divisional round (2010)

How about a great playoff performance? It doesn’t get much better than this.

In the 2010 divisional round, the sixth-seed Packers entered the Georgia Dome to take on the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons and their No. 5-ranked scoring defense.

Aaron Rodgers put in a performance for the ages, completing 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns, while running in another touchdown. He had a passer rating of 136.8 as the Packers destroyed the Falcons 48-21.

Rodgers silenced the crowd, putting together a near-perfect performance in a tough environment to send the Packers into the NFC Championship Game.
