2008 to 2012 was the best rivalry between teams I've ever seen. Even though the Steelers are both good this year, the battles just don't have the same sizzle as these handful of years do. Perhaps that will change moving forward.

Week 16, 2004. Packers @ Vikings on Christmas eve. Packers needed to win this game to keep their playoff hopes alive but would need to slow down a Vikings offense that was on fire. Daunte Culpepper threw for nearly 5,000 yards and 40 td's that season and Randy Moss was in his last season with the Vikings. A classic NFCN battle that went back and forth. Favre and Culpepper both had big days through the air . Javon Walker and Donald Driver being Favre's main Targets while rookie Nate Burelson had a breakout performance. Vintage Favre drove the packers down the field for a game winning, Ryan Longwell field goal as time expired. I REALLY miss Al Harris and think he is one of the most underrated corners of all time.

that will never happen again. Steelers are a finesse team now and it helps when the teams are physical and have HOF players - ON DEFENCE.  Lewis and Reed, Troy and Harrison.  Defence was the main reason.  NFL has made the rules offensive friendly to the point I doubt it would d ever get like the old Ravens vs Steelers games. The league is different now, but if you like pass and catch....

2001 NFC Divisional Playoff

Green Bay Packers (13-4) at St. Louis Rams (14-2)

Sunday Jan 20, 2002
Start Time: 4:15pm
Stadium: Dome at America's Center
Attendance: 66,338
Time of Game: 3:05

The NFL landscape had to wait essentially three years for a Favre/Warner duel. What was presented was a lopsided affair in favor of the St. Louis Rams. This was arguably Brett Favre's worst game as a pro as he threw 6 interceptions, although a few of them were just bad bounces to Rams defenders. The Packers overall turned the ball over 8 times, with St. Louis scoring a TD instantly off of three of them. A disappointing end to Mike Sherman's first season as Packers head coach, and a great step forward for the Rams who had returned back to the NFC Championship for the 2nd time in three seasons.
