Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Packers’ Week 15 contests each of the last five seasons:

2009: After a fourth-quarter rally, the Packers were defeated on a last-second touchdown in a 37-36 loss to the Steelers. Trailing 24-10 entering the fourth quarter, QB Aaron Rodgers found TE Jermichael Finley for an 11-yard touchdown pass to cut the deficit to three. Green Bay matched a pair of Steelers field goals with two touchdowns to go up 36-30, but a 19-yard TD pass to WR Mike Wallace gave the Steelers the victory.

2008: Green Bay gave up a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew in a 20-16 loss. After falling behind 7-0 early, the Packers stormed back with 13 consecutive points, including a TD pass from Rodgers to WR Greg Jennings, to go up by six heading into the fourth quarter. Green Bay handled Jones-Drew’s first touchdown, as a PK Mason Crosby field goal put them back in the lead, but Green Bay had no response for MJD’s second score.

2007: After a back-and-forth start, the Packers shut out the Rams in the second half of their 33-14 win over the Rams. RB Ryan Grant and TE Donald Lee each scored touchdowns before the break, but St. Louis added two TDs of its own to tie things up. Crosby hit a field goal just before the half to give Green Bay an advantage it would never relinquish.

2006: Green Bay was able to overcome three interceptions by QB Brett Favre in a 17-9 defeat of the Lions. After trading field goals in the first quarter, RB Vernand Morency gave the Packers a 10-3 halftime lead with a 14-yard touchdown run. Detroit added a pair of field goals to pull within one before Morency struck again with less than three minutes remaining in the game, scoring on a 21-yard run.

2005: The Packers were crushed by the Ravens on Monday Night Football, losing 48-3. Baltimore took a 14-point lead before PK Ryan Longwell was able to get Green Bay on the board, but it was all Ravens from there. Baltimore shut the Packers out for the remaining three quarters of the game, forcing Green Bay into five turnovers.
