Snow Globe Game @ Lambeau Field - 1 Year Ago

Packers Rout Seattle 42-20 In Snowy Lambeau
(January 12, 2008)

Brett Favre spotted his favorite target all alone and let it fly. He hit Donald Driver, all right -- with a snowball. Favre frolicked in the flurries the entire afternoon, throwing three touchdown passes as the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks 42-20 Saturday to reach the NFC Championship Game. "I've been hoping for that for 17 years," Favre said. "I was watching the weather all day and it's a shame, I'm like, 'Just give us one of those big snow games.' "I wanted to play where you couldn't see the field, and the snowplow comes out. It keeps getting worse and worse," he said. With Lambeau Field looking like a snow globe, the Packers posted their biggest points total in postseason history. This was exactly the scene Favre imagined when he decided to postpone retirement and try for another Super Bowl ring.
