Brett Favre's Best Games as a Green Bay Packer | Ticket King

Last Thursday, the Packers retired Brett Favre's number at halftime, while the current team suffered a 17-13 loss at home to the Chicago Bears. We thought we would take some time out from the norm, and reflect on some of Brett Favre's best moments as a Packers quarterback. These are in no particular order.

His first game- On September 20, 1992, Favre entered the game replacing an injured Don Majkowski and completed his first pass, of all people, to himself, following a deflection. Favre led the Packers 92 yards for the game winning score and 35 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Kitrick Taylor with just 13 seconds left to give the Packers a 23-17 win.

The moment Brett Favre became “Brett Favre”- On January 8th 1994, the Packers were playing in their first playoff game in over 10 years. With one minute left, the Packers snapped that ball from the 40 yard line, Favre rolled out to his left, and fired a rocket back across the field into the endzone to an open Sterling Sharpe to give the Packers a 28-24 victory, and their first playoff win since Super Bowl II. This is considered to be the moment Brett Favre became Brett Favre.

Super Bowl 31 - It wasn't his greatest day ever, but it may have certainly been his most important. For the game, Favre was just 14 of 26 for 246 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Packers 35-1 win over the Patriots. Obviously, for a man who won three MVP awards, he had seen much better days. He also ran for a touchdown using an old pylon tactic taught to him by his father as a child.

Favre's signature game- On October 14 2001, the Packers played host to the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, and their vaunted defense, known as “Baltimore's Brick Wall”. Well, in the game of his life, Favre tore down that brick wall, going 27 of 34 for 337 yards and three touchdowns leading the Packers to a 31-23 win.

Playing with a heavy heart- On Dec. 23, 2003. Favre took the field mere hours after the death of his father. Favre ended up having one of the best games of his career, throwing for 399 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers 41-7 win over the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football.
