GREEN BAY – The fans have spoken and three of the most iconic games in Packers’ history are heading to YouTube.

The NFL recently announced that it will upload full network broadcasts of some of the most memorable games in NFL history. The results are in from a fan vote conducted this past week on Facebook to determine which three Packers games will be added to YouTube prior to the start of the 2016 season:

-The Packers’ XLV victory over Pittsburgh (35 percent of the vote)

-The Packers’ XXXI victory over New England (30 percent)

-Brett Favre’s 4 TDs against Oakland in 2003 following the death of his father (17 percent)

Each club was given five initial game options which were chosen in collaboration with NFL Films and the 32 clubs based on fan appeal, historical significance and network broadcast availability.

The Packers’ 1993 NFC wild-card game against Detroit and the 2000 Monday Night Football game against Minnesota were also on the ballot.

Ninety-six games will be uploaded in their original broadcast presentation with the exception of broadcast commercials and halftime shows. Individual voting executions were conducted via Facebook through online polls. Each poll can be accessed by clicking the team logo on nfl.com/youtubegames
