19. Packers vs. Patriots (1997)
It’s easy to forget the short-term impact that Drew Bledsoe had on the Patriots. He turned them into a playoff team in one season and a contender inside three. However, New England’s history before Tom Brady is traumatic. This was no exception as they faced the Packers in their second Super Bowl appearance. It was a great game of football but Bill Parcell’s team came up just short.
The Patriots trailed throughout the entirety of the game but always kept things interesting. It didn’t help that Bledsoe had a poor display. His four interceptions were costly while Green Bay sacked him five times. In the end, it was the Packers’ day as they won their third Super Bowl. Meanwhile, Brett Favre won his only ring as a starter for Green Bay (via Mercury News).
