Published 05/24/2022, 9:00 AM EDT

2004 was a very different time in the NFL. Tom Brady had only won two Super Bowl rings. The Manning brothers were dominating the league. And the legendary Brett Favre was the number one quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. Being the best of the best in Wisconsin, there were days he couldn’t deliver to the elite level. One of his worst playoffs performance was overshadowed by the most iconic butt in the history of the NFL. 

In 2004, the Packers met the Minnesota Vikings in the wild card round. The name of the round is ironic because the game was nothing short of wild.

The wild card round would tell a different story altogether. It seems like the Packers’ legendary quarterback was not on the top of his game. He was missing passes left and right. Favre was also intercepted multiple times that night. The Packers’ confidence soon turned into worries. Because they were behind 17-0 after the first quarter.

The fourth quarter was the highlight of the night. Hall of Famer Randy Moss caught a 34-yard pass and scored a touchdown to give his team a 31–17 lead. While celebrating Moss pretended to take off his pants and mooned the Packers fans. The moment became so infamous that we are still talking about it to this day. It saved Brett Favre from harsh criticism after the game for his terrible performance. But overall, Randy Moss gave us a memorable moment.
