In this addition of Classic Monday Night Football games i wanted to do a throwback to the year 2000. 17 years ago now, wow! Feels like yesterday. This game featured a common rivalry between division rivals the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings.
After making the playoffs for 6 seasons, the Pack missed the playoffs in 1999 With Mike Sherman as the new coach this game really turned around the season.
Green Bay needed this boost, considering Vikings had won 7 games straight to start the season. Just watch as Antonio Freeman, makes one of the most incredable catches of all time in OT and score the ball to win the game for green bay.
Just watch as the ball bounces several times before Freeman stretches out with both arms to real the ball in his arms. Then he gets off the ground untouched makes a man miss, then sprints 20 yards or so into the endzone. Simply Incredible. 99 out of 100 times this play cannot be made.
That is why this is the Monday Night Classic of the week here. Stay tuned for more great monday night memories. If you have one you can think of send it over to me in a email, i would love to review what you the reader thinks of the best games ever.
