Bob Harlan announces the team would no longer play part of its home schedule in Milwaukee and would create a partial season-ticket package for an equivalent number of games.
Two months later, with no timeouts and 14 seconds left, Brett Favre lunges into the end zone for a 21-17 victory over Atlanta in the final Packers game at County Stadium.
Sitting at 7-7 entering the Falcons game, the Packers’ playoff hopes were on the line. Green Bay led 14-3 after one quarter but did not score again until the waning moments as Favre directed a 10-play, 67-yard drive.
After an 8-yard pass to tight end Mark Chmura set up a third-and-2 from the Atlanta 9-yard line with 21 seconds left, the Packers called their last timeout. Head coach Mike Holmgren instructed Favre to throw the ball into the end zone or throw it away, because any tackle in the field of play would end the game.Favre decided to scramble anyway, risking Green Bay’s season and scoring with 14 seconds left to keep his team in the playoff hunt.
