How appropriate it is that the Green Bay Packers are playing the Cincinnati Bengals this week. It was 21 years ago today that they were playing those same Bengals, quarterback Don Majkowski got injured and a youngster named Brett Favre entered the game.
You probably remember how that one turned out. The stuff of legend.
There’s 1:07 left and the Packers are at their own 8, trailing by six. Favre leads the team downfield with the clock winding down and hits Packers legend Kitrick Taylor for the winning score with 13 seconds on the clock. Okay, so maybe Kitrick Taylor isn’t a Packers legend, but he was involved in a legendary Packers play, so that counts for something, right?
Here’s the final drive, featuring some of our favorite characters, including Sterling Sharpe, The Walrus, Pookie Workman and Chris Jacke’s mullet.
