Green Bay Packers (4-5) 26, Minnesota Vikings (7-1) 20 (OT)
Monday November 6th 2000 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Antonio Freeman made one of the most astonishing touchdown catches in National Football League history, lifting the desperate Packers to a 26-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in a Monday Night classic that will long live in Green Bay football lore. With the Packers facing third and 4 at the Vikings' 43 on the first possession of overtime, Brett Favre took a shot deep to Freeman, who was locked in man-to-man coverage with cornerback Cris Dishman along the western sideline. As Freeman slipped and fell, Dishman had the ball in his hands but dropped the interception. The ball bounced off Freeman's left arm until he controlled it against his chest as he lay on the ground. Freeman jumped to his feet at the 15, eluded Robert Griffith and scored a touchdown that set off a wild victory celebration in the south end zone. The outlook appeared bleak as Vikings kicker Gary Anderson lined up to kick a game-winning 32-yard field goal with 7 seconds left in regulation and the score knotted at 20. But after Green Bay called a timeout, which allowed the steady rain to further drench the turf, holder Mitch Berger was unable to control the snap, and Anderson was denied the opportunity to close the game. LeRoy Butler started his 100th consecutive games, dating to Oct. 9, 1994. His streak is the second longest behind Brett Favre's 134.
