However, the Chicag0 Bears finished — despite losing twice to the Packers — and won the NFC Central division, relegating the Packers to a wild card spot despite their excellent record.
Favre bounced back too, making the Pro Bowl and finishing the season with 3, passing yards, 32 touchdowns, 15 interceptions, and a passer rating of Favre was very good, going for passing with yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
That pushed Green Bay into the divisional around against the St. Louis Rams, who had gone in the regular season and were the favorite to win the Super Bowl. The game was tied after the first quarter, but in the final three quarters it was an absolute beatdown by the Rams. Louis outscored Green Bay over that time, including two interceptions their defense returned for touchdowns off of Favre in the span of less than 30 seconds.
In the end, Favre threw two touchdown passes but six interceptions, a playoff-worst for his career. It was an embarrassing finish to the season for the Packers, but it was an uphill battle against the high-powered Rams offense in the first place. Head coach Mike Sherman stood behind his franchise quarterback, however. Favre again had a good year, throwing 27 touchdowns with 16 interceptions, 3, passing yards, and a passer rating of His best game of the season came against the Chicago Bears in Week 5, when Favre was for passing with yards and three touchdowns, good for a passer rating of The Packers went into the wild card round of the playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons, who finished a very mediocre in the regular season.

He went for passing with yards and four touchdowns in beating Oakland Even Raiders fans appreciated the performance, which left Favre with tears rolling down his cheeks.
When playoff time rolled around, Green Bay drew the Seattle Seahawks in the wild card round. Despite having the exact same record as the Packers, the game was held in Green Bay due to tiebreakers. Seattle was up,late in the game, but Favre led his team on two great drives that ended in one-yard touchdown runs by running back Ahman Green.
The game went into overtime, where Packers defensive back Al Harris intercepted a pass from Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck and ran it back 52 yards for the game-winning touchdown. The Packers moved on to face the Philadelphia Eagles, and things looked good when Favre hit on two touchdown passes in the first quarter and took an early lead.

Favre had a rough game, throwing four interceptions and just one touchdown pass, and the game never was close. The Packers lost,and their season was over.

But the rookie had to sit and wait his turn, and Favre was still going strong on his consecutive games streak. Favre finished with just 20 touchdowns to 29 interceptions, throwing for 3, passing yards and a passer rating of Even worse than that was the overall season for the Packers, which finished at — their first sub.
