10). 2014 Seahawks 28, Packers 22 (OT)

The Seahawks trailed 16-0 at half time. In the second half, the Seahawks staged a heart-pounding rally. They even recovered an onside kick with just over two minutes left in the game, to led to the tying score for Seattle. Russell Wilson who played poorly most of the day threw a touchdown pass three minutes into overtime to win the game.


9). 2012 49ers 28, Falcons 24

The 49ers spotted the Falcons a 17-0 lead early on and then dominated the game from their behind the passing of Colin Kaepernick.


8). 1983 Redskins 24, 49ers 21

The Redskins were the defending World Champions, and for three-quarters, you could tell why as they dominated the 49ers and entered the 4th quarter up 21-0. The 49ers staged a dramatic comeback to tie the game at 21. The Redskins mounted one final drive that led to Mark Mosley kicking a field goal to win the game. It should not be left unsaid that this game was not officiated very well and the 49ers seemed to be on the wrong end of every call during this game.


7). 1992 Cowboys 30, 49ers 20

This was a great matchup between the experienced 49ers and the young up and coming Cowboys. The difference in this game was Dallas forcing four turnovers that turned into 10 points. In the final minutes the 49ers had close to 24-20 and seemed to have momentum on their side, that is until QB Troy Aikman hit Alvin Harper on a 70-yard pass play down inside of the 49ers ten-yard line. A couple of play later the Cowboys were in the end zone and headed to the Super Bowl.


6). 1995 Cowboys 38, Packers 27

This was a great back and forth game between a great team(Cowboys) and a team on the verge of greatness(Packers). The Cowboys led 31-27 late in the fourth quarter and Brett Favre was driving the Packers down the field. Unfortunately, Favre threw an ill-advised pass that was intercepted by the Cowboys Larry Brown. That interception led to an Emmitt Smith touchdown that ended the game.




5). 2009 Saints 31, Vikings 28 (OT)

For the second time in three years, QB Brett Favre threw away an NFC Championship game with a bad interception.


4). 2007 Giants 23, Packers 20 (OT)

Here he is again, Brett Favre threw his last pass as a Packer in this game in overtime, guess how it turned out? If you guessed it was a poor decision and throw that led to an interception and ended up losing his team the game, you would be right!


3). 1998 Falcons 30, Vikings 27 (OT)

Gary Anderson had not missed a kick the entire season, but he did miss late in this game with a chance to clinch it. Falcons kicker Morten Anderson made good on his chance a 38-yard field goal in overtime that sent Atlanta to its first ever Super Bowl and sent Vikings fans into a state of shock.

The Falcons came into the game as 11-point underdogs, but managed to win an extremely competitive game, making Minnesota the first 15-1 team ever to fail to reach the Super Bowl; they would be joined by the 2004 Steelers.


2). 1990 Giants 15, 49ers 13

This one of the hardest hitting games in NFL history, the Giants not Montana out of the game late. Then with the 49ers running out the clock late running back Roger Craig fumbled. The Giants promptly went down the field and kicked a game-winning field goal.


1). 1981 49ers 28, Cowboys 27

One of the greatest games in NFL history, the beginning of the Montana-Walsh dynasty.
