One of the most popular stories in the National Football League history is the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have the most titles in NFL history. Green Bay is not known as “Titletown” without reason. Overall, the Packers have 13 NFL titles in its showcase. People often ponder upon the reason and tenure of winning so many titles.
In view of this, most of these titles were earned even before the Super Bowl Era. It was the time when titles were considered as NFL Championships. The Packers are wildly popular, they are truly America’s team. And even though they have never played abroad, they are just as popular around the world.
Here are the five best teams of Green Bay Packers since 1992.
1 – 1996 Green Bay Packers
The 1996 Packers were a dominant football team on both sides of the ball. The Packers jumped to a 8-1 start, lost two in a row, at Kansas City and Dallas, then were unstoppable the rest of the way. They finished 13-3 and cruised through the playoffs on their way to the the Super Bowl.
The Packers were ranked as the number one in defense as well as offense in 1996. Favre was winning another MVP and the defense had the Minister of Defense, Reggie White leading the way.
Besides that, they defeated the New England Patriots 35-21 in the Super Bowl XXI. In this super bowl championship, WR/KR Desmond Howard was ranked for his 244 all-purpose yards, racking up in the return for a touchdown. After that, Favre, the popular players ranked up in the regular second season as MVP.
2 – 1997 Green Bay Packers
Despite losing the Super Bowl to Denver this team, this team was every bit as good. After starting the season 3-2 they got hot and went 10-1 down the stretch. Brett Favre again led the way on offense and Dorsey Levens had a career year with 1805 yards from scrimmage.
In addition Robert Brooks and Antonio Freeman both had over 1000 yards receiving. The Packers were large favorites to win the Super Bowl but lost 31-24 to John Elway and the Denver Broncos. Above all, this squad was still one of the best.
3 – 2010 Green Bay Packers
The most recent Green Bay Packers team to win the Super Bowl was the 2010 team. They were only 8-6 after 14 games. But from there they won their last two regular season games to earn the sixth seed in the playoffs. From there it was a playoff run for the ages. They won four straight games on the road, including the NFC Championship in Chicago.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers entered elite territory with a magnificent performance during that run. It propelled him to his first MVP award the follow season. His performance in the 48-21 blowout over Atlanta in the division round was one of the greatest of all time in the playoffs. 31-out-of-36 for 366 yards and three TDs.
This was scrappy team with a lot young and veteran players. Charles Woodson’s speech before the NFC Championship game will never be forgotten, “the president doesn’t want to come to us, we’ll go to him!”
4 – 2007 Green Bay Packers
The specialty of the 2007 Green Bay Packers team was Brett Favre. People came from far-off places to watch this season just because their favorite player was playing in a packer uniform. It was the last packers’ season in which Brett Favre participated. This team finished the season th 13-3.
Brett Favre threw for over 4000 yards Ryan Grant ran for over 1000 yards. When the first week of the playoffs the Packers crushed the Seahawks 42-20. The weather the following week worked against them, however, as they lost the NFC Championship 23-20 in subzero temperatures in Lambeau Field.
5 – 1995 Green Bay Packers
Whenever we look at the history of Green Bay Packers, the team of 1995 is considered they breakout team in the Packers return to greatness. Brett Favre was coming into his own, winning the first of three straight league MVP awards. It was the year the Packers went to San Francisco in the playoffs and shocked the 49ers. Craig Newsome returned a fumble on the 49ers first play from scrimmage and the Packers never looked back, winning handily 27-17.
The following week in the NFC Championship game they took the lead into the fourth quarter but could not hold on in Dallas. One might call them a Cinderella story, they went on to prove otherwise by going to the next two Super Bowls.
