This is according to ESPN, which put together a list of the worst collapses in sports history. Some are seasons, some are series and some are games. The Green Bay Packers’ most epic collapse came in at No. 19.
You know the one.
The NFC Championship loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
How that happened, we do not need to discuss again. You know how it happened. I know how it happened.
I do like how ESPN led off the Packers’ section of this list with this line.
Some Green Bay fans might have been booking flights to Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX as the clock ticked down.
Yeah, I was doing that.
Of course I’m biased, but No. 19 seems low for that debacle.
Here’s the real question, though.
What is the most painful defeat in Green Bay Packers’ history?
I’ve got three great candidates for you.
- 2014 NFC Championship loss to Seattle
- 2011 NFC Championship loss to the Giants
- Super Bowl XXXII loss to Denver
Marinate on that for a while.
