On a windy, freezing Monday night game against Minnesota, the Packers and Vikings were in overtime at Lambeau Field when Antonio Freeman made what ABC considered the greatest play in Monday Night Football history. Brett Favre, facing a blitz, threw the ball off of his back foot toward Freeman, who was covered by Vikings DB Cris Dishman. The ball caromed off of Dishman's arms, onto Freeman's back, and somehow into the receiver's arms. Dishman, thinking he broke the pass up, prematurely celebrated while Freeman raced into the end zone.
