Packers plays involved in ‘bracketology’

Antonio FreemanThe entire exercise seems a little much, but in the spirit of March Madness, NFL.com is inviting fans to vote for their favorite play of all-time, bracket style, from amongst what the website ranks as the 64 greatest plays of all-time. Two significant plays involving the Packers have been pitted against each other in the opening round.

WR Antonio Freeman’s “Monday Night Miracle” against the Vikings in 2000 at Lambeau Field is up against “The Catch II” — San Francisco WR Terrell Owens’ last-second TD grab in the 1998 NFC Wild Card game.

Whichever play gets enough votes will move on to the second round, where it could face another Packers-related play. In the adjacent first-round pairing is the overtime fumble return for a TD by Arizona’s Karlos Dansby in the 2009 NFC Wild Card game.

Another play worth noting amongst the 64 selections is the walk-off punt-return TD by Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson against the New York Giants in 2010. That played a significant role in the Packers qualifying for the playoffs, which of course led to the Super Bowl XLV title.

You can see the “brackets” and cast your votes — as well as watch videos of all the plays — by clicking on nfl.com/bracketology. First-round voting ends on Friday.

    Not to be a homer….but not including Bart Starr in the Ice Bowl? Guess when don’t have HD video or 16 camera angles it’s not a “great play.”

    Oh well…back to my soap box on the corner of Main St. to explain Don Hutson’s impact on the modern game.

    what a total joke, the last play of the ice bowl didnt even make the list. I guess they wanted someone other then the packers to win.

    I agree with Mike. Ice bowl play should be on there.
    P.S. I’m fifteen and I think Hudson was awesome.
