Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Packers' Week 16 contests each of the last five seasons:

2009: The Packers dominated the ground game in a 48-10 defeat of the Seahawks. RBs Ryan Grant and Brandon Jackson each scored twice. Jackson contributed in the passing game, as well, opening the scoring with a 13-yard TD catch from QB Aaron Rodgers.

2008: After letting the Bears back into a game in which they led by 11 points, the Packers fell 20-17 in overtime. Rodgers threw first-quarter TD passes to WR Greg Jennings and Grant to give Green Bay a 14-3 lead after one quarter of play, an advantage they held the remainder of the half. PK Mason Crosby answered a third-quarter Bears touchdown with a field foal in the fourth to put the Packers up by seven before Bears RB Matt Forté scored to tie things up and send the game to overtime — where the Packers ultimately fell.

2007: A 66-yard run by Grant was all the Packers could manage in a 35-7 loss to Chicago. QB Brett Favre was just 17-of-32 on the day for 153 yards and a two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Grant had a decent day on the ground, picking up 100 yards on 14 carries.

2006: Field goals were all the Packers needed to beat the Vikings 9-7. PK David Rayner's nine points were more than Minnesota got from CB Fred Smoot's interception return for a TD which wound up being the Vikings' only score of the day. WR Donald Driver had a productive outing, picking up 99 yards on nine receptions.

2005: The Packers' rally attempt fell short in a 24-17 loss to the Bears. After managing just one touchdown through the first three quarters, on a one-yard run from RB Noah Herron, Green Bay finally re-visited the scoreboard in the fourth quarter. WR Antonio Chatman scored on an 85-yard punt return before a field goal from PK Ryan Longwell, but it was too little to late for the Packers.
