(10-02-94) Green Bay Packers @ New England Patriots - Teams where throwback uniforms - Matt Bahr's 33-yard field goal with four seconds left fluttered awkwardly, barely clearing the crossbar. It ended two minutes of kicking comedy Sunday, and gave the New England Patriots a 17-16 victory over Green Bay. The Packers made it possible by bumbling an extra-point attempt and botching the ensuing kickoff. The kick by the 38-year-old Bahr decided a duel between young quarterbacks Drew Bledsoe and Brett Favre. Bahr had missed his previous two attempts after making all 12 in his career with New England. But he got the chance to be the hero because Green Bay could not kick any better. Just 1:10 earlier, the Packers blew an extra-point try that Chris Jacke, who had made 127 in a row, never got to kick. Craig Hentrich had trouble handling Mark Chmura's low snap and was tackled. Then, Jacke's kickoff went out of bounds, giving New England the ball on its own 40. Bledsoe drove the Patriots into position for Bahr's winner. That enabled the Patriots to go on to their third straight win in typical fashion. Fourteen of their last 15 games have been decided by six or fewer points. Bahr missed from 47 and 33 yards earlier. He got another chance after the Patriots fell behind 16-14 on Reggie Cobb's 1-yard run with 1:14 left. Bledsoe completed 29-of-53 passes for 334 yards and two scoring passes to Vincent Brisby against the Packers, who began the game with the NFL's second best defense. On the Patriots' final drive, Bledsoe sneaked 3 yards on a third-and-1 to the Green Bay 32. Then he hit Ray Crittenden for a 10-yard gain to the 15 on a third-and-3. After two incompletions, Bahr connected. The kick ruined a strong performance by Favre. He completed 25-of-47 passes for 295 yards and an 11-yard touchdown to Sterling Sharpe that gave the Packers a 10-0 halftime lead. Sharpe set a Packers record with 533 career catches, passing James Lofton's 530. Sharpe had nine receptions for 132 yards and extended his streak to 92 games with at least one catch. Favre threw two interceptions and was sacked twice in the second half. - includes commercials and halftime (Quality 8.5)

(11-13-94) New England Patriots @ Minnesota Vikings - OT - Trailing 20-3 at halftime, the normally explosive Parcells asks his team how long they are going to allow other teams to push them around.

(01-01-95) 1994 AFC Wildcard - New England Patriots @ Cleveland Browns - The Browns halted the Patriots' attempted comeback in the final minutes of the game to clinch the victory.

(01-26-97) Super Bowl XXXI - New England vs Green Bay Packers - Packers bring the Lombardi trophy home in a game that had many huge plays by huge players. Favre launched the day's scoring with a 54-yard touchdown pass to WR Andre Rison on his first throw of the game; Favre noticed the defense and called an audible on the play. Later, Favre found Freeman with a then-Super Bowl-record, 81-yard scoring strike where he perfectly lofted the ball over a Pats defender; play came off of another audible Favre called. Total, Favre frisked New England's vaunted defense for 246 yards, completing 14 of 27 attempts without an interception, to trigger a 35-21 triumph in Super Bowl XXXI at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, returning the Lombardi Trophy to Green Bay for the first time in 29 years. It had to have been an especially magical moment for Favre, who had disclosed off-the-field problems in May, then stated upon returning from a 45-day stay in the Menninger Clinic at Topeka, Kan., "You know, I'm going to beat this thing. I'm going to win a Super Bowl. And all I can tell people if they don't believe me is, 'Just bet against me.' " Reggie White came to Green Bay to win a championship and wasn’t going to leave without one. White would come up with 3 sacks, a super bowl record, with 2 of them late in the game to help preserve the game. After all of this though neither of them would be the Super Bowl MVP, that honor was left for Desmond Howard who set one record after another. (3 DVDs) (Quality 9)

(10-27-97) Green Bay Packers @ New England Patriots - MNF - Brett Favre made the Super Bowl sequel as successful for the Green Bay Packers as the original. Throwing on the run and scrambling for first downs, he baffled New England's defense with three touchdown passes as the Packers won, 28-10, Monday night, nine months and a day after they beat the Patriots for the NFL title 35-21. Trailing 10-7 late in the first half, Favre led the Packers on scoring drives of 75 yards in the second quarter, 99 in the third and 85 in the fourth. Both teams played down the rematch angle, focusing instead on correcting recent problems - two losses in three games for the Patriots and four wins by fewer than seven points for the Packers. The crowd was subdued most of the night as tradition prevailed: Super Bowl winners are 4-1 in games they have played the following season against the teams they beat for the title. Favre gave the Packers a 7-0 lead with a 6-yard pass to Dorsey Levens with 3:19 left in the first half. But the Patriots went ahead on Drew Bledsoe's 11-yard scoring pass to Ben Coates and Adam Vinatieri's 38-yard field goal. It was his 22nd consecutive successful attempt, the longest current streak in the NFL. Favre then gave the Packers a 14-10 halftime lead with a 32-yard pass to Mark Chmura 22 seconds before intermission. And when the Patriots couldn't score after getting a first down at the Green Bay l-yard line on their first series of the second half, Favre led the Packers on a 17-play, 99-yard march ending in his 20-yard scoring pass to Robert Brooks with 15 seconds left in the third quarter. Levens, whose status for the game had been questionable because of a clavicle injury, finished the scoring with a 3-yard run with 2:46 left in the game. He rushed for 100 yards. Both teams had changed considerably since the Super Bowl. The Patriots have a new coach, Pete Carroll, who has been under pressure to show he can be as successful as his predecessor. Bill Parcells. And the Packers have been hurt by injuries. But Green Bay still has Favre, who completed 23-of-34 passes for 239 yards. And as he did in the Super Bowl, when he threw touchdown passes of 81 and 54 yards and ran for another, he outplayed Bledsoe. - Includes MNF Pre-game, halftime and Pack Attack Post Game (Quality 9)

2001

(09-30-01) Indianapolis Colts vs New England Patriots - Tom Brady's first start - The Belichick era was in danger of collapsing on itself.

Otis Smith and Ty Law would return two interceptions for touchdowns in the Patriots blowout.

(10-14-01) San Diego Chargers @ New England Patriots - OT - The feelings of the Patriots victory over the Colts was erased by a 30-10 drubbing at the hand of the Dolphins.

(01-19-02) 2001 AFC Divisional - Oakland Raiders vs New England Patriots - "The Snow Bowl" or " The Tuck Rule Game" - The game that made the "Tuck Rule" a household term. The Patriots dream season was in dire straits. Trailing 13-3 entering the fourth, amidst a blizzard in New England, the Patriots chances for victory seemed dim. A Brady touchdown scamper closed the gap to 3 at 13-10. After a critical 3rd down and short stop, the Patriots offense got all the could ask for, the ball a few minutes to operate. In Raider territory, the play that will forever mark this game happened. Charles Woodson came on a corner blitz and hit Brady forcing a fumble that was recovered by another Raider defender and ending the Patriots dream season. A review of the play, ruled the play an incomplete by a little known "Tuck Rule" and the Patriots were still alive. A few plays later, Adam Vinatieri lined up for a game tying 45 yard field goal. The kick which appeared to get no more then 20 feet off the ground sailed threw the snow and wind and tied the game at 13. The Patriots would win the coin toss and drive down the field on the opening drive and Adam Vinatieri would lineup and boot the game winning kick 7 minutes into overtime and propel the Patriots into the AFC Championship game.

(01-27-02) 2001 AFC Championship - New England Patriots @ Pittsburgh Steelers - The victory epitomized the 2001 team effort as the offense, defense and special teams contributed to the victory, but is also known for the curtain call for Drew Beldsoe's Patriots tenure. Having lost his job and place in New England sports lore on a hard hit by the Jets' Mo Lewis, Drew Bledsoe was asked to help his team after Tom Brady's ankle was rolled up on during the second quarter. Drew would cap the Brady started drive by hitting David Patten in the corner of the endzone to give the Patriots a 14-3 haltime lead. He would drive the Patriots in the fourth to give them a game securing 24-17 lead on an Adam Vinatieri field goal and he would finish his Patriots career by coming off the bench and throwing for 102 yards and one touchdown. - added October, 2007

The Jets would end that dream a little over two hours later by beating the Packers. - (4 DVDs) - Added July, 2011

 

2003

(10-05-03) Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots - The injury plagued Patriots were in danger of falling two games behind the Phins in the loss column with a loss to the Titans. Fresh off a poor performance against the Redskins and a beating administered by the Titans the previous year, the Patriots needed a victory in the worst way. Late in the 4th, the Titans trailed 31-27, had the ball and were driving when Ty Law, who early in the game had severly twisted his ankle, stepped in front of a Steve McNair pass and raced 65 yards to for the game deciding TD. (Quality 9) - Added September, 2008

(10-19-03) New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins - OT - With first place on the line, the Patriots and Dolphins engagaed in a typical defensive struggle. After the Patriots tied the score late at 13, the first example that the 2003 season might be special manifested itself, the Phins drove into Patriots' territory to set-up a potential Olinde Mare game winning FG, but Richard Seymour would block the kick and the game would go to OT. After a coin flip mistake by the ref gave the Dolphins the ball, the Dolphins further benefitted when a great reception by Chris Chambers was allowed even though his foot was clearly out of bounds. A second Mare game winning field goal attempt would go wide right. Later in OT, on the first play after a Ty Poole INT gave the Patriots the ball at their own 18, Brady avoided the rush and rolled to the left and heaved the ball towards a streaking Troy Brown who beat two defenders and went 82 yards for the game winning touchdown.

(11-30-03) New England Patriots vs Indianapolis Colts - Homefield advantage was on the line as the 9-2 New England visited the 9-2 Colts. In the third the Patriots were ahead 31-10 and seemingly in control when turnovers and stellar Colts play allowed them to crawl back in the game. After breaking a 31-31 tie with a TD to Deoin Branch, the Colts first cut the lead to 38-34 with a fieldgoal and then drove for the game winning score late in the 4th. With under 20 seconds to go, the Colts had a first and goal from the 1. The Patriots defense withstood the Colts offense on the first three plays. On 4th and goal from the 1, Willie McGinest feigned coverage and came in untouched to stuff Edgerrin James short of the goaline and perserve the Patriots victory. - limited commercials - Gumbel & Simms - halftime (Quality 8.5)

2004

(09-09-04) Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots - In a game that saw the Colts seize control early behind Edgerrin James running, the Patriots would storm back in the second half to take a 27-17 lead into the fourth. Much like the game 10 months earlier, the Colts would mount a comeback and were driving late for the win or a game tying field goal. On 3rd and 8 from the Patriots 17, Willie McGinest, again would make a game saving play. This time he came off the line unchecked and sacked Peyton Manning for a 12 yard loss pushing any possible FG attempt from 34 to 47 yards. Mike Vanderjagt would miss his first kick since December 2002. (Quality 9) - Added September, 2008

(12-20-04) New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins - MNF - In a game reminiscent of the 1983 Snow Plow game, the Patriots and Dolphins were locked in a 3-0 battle late in the game. Through the blizzard like conditions, Tedy Bruschi stepped in front of a Jay Fiedler pass deep in the Phins end and waltzed into the endzone and clinched the AFC East for the Patriots. The fans put on a snow fireworks show for the Patriots. - added March, 2007

(01-16-05) 2004 AFC Divisional - Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots - The more things change the more things stay the same. In the 2004 AFC Championship game, almost a year to the day earlier, the unstoppable Colts came to the Razor the consensus favorite to advance to the Superbowl. The Patriots would win easily 24-14. Fast forward one year and the same script is written with a few more twists. Again, Peyton is looking unstoppable after an NFL record 49 TD passes in 15 games. This time, the Patriots fate seemed set, as Ty Law and Tyronne Poole were not manning the secondary. Sixty minutes later, the 4th highest scoring offense in league history had mustered only 3 points. The Patriots defense would end the Colts' Superbowl aspirations for the second year in a row. This time by a 20-3 score. - added March, 2007

(01-23-05) 2004 AFC Championship - Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots - pitted a rematch of a week seven battle between the two best teams in the AFC. In the earlier match, the Steelers had jumped on the Patriots quick and surged to a 21-3 first quarter lead. The 34-20 loss would end the Patriots NFL record 21 game winning streak. This time the Patriots would jump out quick. After forcing the Steelers to turn the ball over on downs in Patriots' territory, Tom Brady would hit a streaking Deoin Branch for a 60 yard touchdown strike to give the Patriots a 10-0 lead in the first. Late in the second quarter with the Patriots leading 17-3 and the Steelers driving, Rodney Harrison stepped in front of a Ben Roethilsberger pass and returned the interception 87 yards for a touchdown and a 24-3 halftime score. A Corey Dillon run of 25 yards and a Deoin Branch run of 23 yards kept the Patriots comfortably in front as they earned their third Superbowl berth in four years. - (Quality 9)

2006

(11-19-06) New England Patriots @ Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre wasn't around to finish the game. Vinny Testaverde was. The Patriots forced the three-time MVP off the field with an elbow injury near the end of the first half, then snapped their first losing streak in nearly four years with a 35-0 victory at Lambeau Field. Tom Brady threw for 244 yards and four touchdowns before he was replaced by backup Matt Cassel late in the fourth quarter. Testaverde, who was signed by New England earlier this week, then came in to run out the clock. New England had lost two straight games at home, its first losing streak since the end of the 2002 season, but is 5-0 on the road this year. The Patriots had Sunday's game well under control even before Favre was injured. New England had run up a 21-0 lead with under two minutes left in the first half when linebacker Tully Banta-Cain wrapped Favre up in the backfield and Tedy Bruschi jumped in to finish the sack. Bruschi's hit slammed Favre to the ground on his throwing arm, and the three-time MVP got up wincing. Favre, who made his 251st consecutive start on Sunday including playoff games, was replaced by second-year player Aaron Rodgers. Favre walked back out of the locker room shortly after halftime, but Rodgers played the remainder of the game. - added September, 2007

(01-21-07) 2006 AFC Championship - New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts - The Colts complete the largest comeback in AFC/NFC Championship history. The Colts gained 455 offensive yards, 32 first downs, and managed to overcome a 21-3 deficit to the Patriots to earn their first trip to the Super Bowl since the 1970 season. Their 18-point comeback was the largest ever in an NFL conference championship game, and tied the record for the fourth largest NFL postseason comeback. The Colts' win was especially satisfying coming against New England, who had eliminated them from the playoffs in the 2003 AFC title game and the 2004 divisional round.

(11-04-07) New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts - In a game that for the first time in NFL History matched teams with at least 7-0 or better records and was one of the most hyped regular season games ever, but it actually lived up to its billing. A classic comeback victory lead by QB Tom Brady (who had three more TD Passes to give him 33, a Patriot record, as he continues his march towards Peyton Manning's all time season record of 49 in a single season). For Indianapolis, the star of the game was RB Joseph Addai (26-112 rushing as well as 5-114-1 receiving) who became the first player ever in their long storied history of stars to have a 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game. - Added January, 2008

They earned it too as the very game New York Giants gave them everything they could handle. The Giants actually lead 28-16 late in the 3rd Quarter and seemed to have momentum clearly on their side. But the Patriots score touchdowns on three straight drives, and then hand on for 38-35 record setting win. And speaking of records, a few big ones were set on this night! New England broke the all time team scoring record, 589 points, while on the nights go ahead touchdown, a majestic 65 yard bomb, two NFL Records fell on that same play as their QB Tom Brady set the all time record for scoring passes, 50, in a single season, with an individual single season record 23 of those going to WR Randy Moss! - Added October, 2008
