The 1994 Green Bay Packers season was the team's 74th in the National Football League. The Packers posted a 9-7 record for their third straight winning season. 1994 marked the first of 8 seasons in which Packers' quarterback Brett Favre would throw more than 30 touchdown passes.[1] It also marked the second season in which he started all 16 games for the Packers, starting a record-breaking starting streak which would continue throughout his career.[1] This was the final season that the Packers played at Milwaukee County Stadium; they played home games exclusively at Lambeau beginning in 1995. Three Packers had the distinction of being named to the NFL’s All-Time 75th Anniversary Team: Reggie White, Don Hutson, and Ray Nitschke.[2] After defeating the Detroit Lions 16-12 in the wild-card round of the playoffs, the season ended in a 35-9 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC divisional playoff game.[3]
