2. Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary stuns Lions (2015)
Aaron Rodgers truly is the Hail Mary King, and they don’t get any better than the game-winner against the Detroit Lions in 2015.
“He turned 32 yesterday, does he have a vintage moment in him?” asked Jim Nantz on the CBS broadcast.
The answer was yes.
“In the end zone… it is caught… FOR THE WIN!” said Nantz, as Rodgers found tight end Richard Rodgers for the unlikeliest of game-winners.
The disbelief. The throw. The catch. The moment.
Green Bay had trailed 20-0 at one point in the game. The Packers didn’t lead once, until this final play with zero seconds on the clock.

How could anything else take first place?
After memorable playoff wins over the Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, and Chicago Bears on the road, Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to the Super Bowl.
He saved a vintage performance for the biggest stage of all, throwing for 304 yards and three touchdowns in a historic 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rodgers made some unbelievable throws throughout the contest, connecting with Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings twice for scores.
Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP. Even if he had never thrown another pass in the NFL, he was forever a Green Bay Packers legend after this performance, bringing the Lombardi Trophy home.
