==== Game summary ====
The Packers played at Lambeau Field for the second time in five days, a Thursday night game versus their divisional rivals, the [[Minnesota Vikings]]. The game was played on the third-year anniversary of the passing of Irv Favre, Brett Favre's father. In the first quarter, the Packers entered the red zone on each of their drives, but only scored once on a 38-yard field goal from kicker Dave Rayner. Rayner would miss his next two field goals. The Packers defence forced the Vikings to punt on all their possessions in the first half. The Packers scored on the final play of the half with a 44-yard field goal from Dave Rayner. In the third quarter cornerback Charles Woodson intercepted Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, marking his seventh interception of the season extending a career high. Later in the third quarter, Brett Favre was intercepted by cornerback Fred Smoot. Smoot returned the interception into the end zone, gaining the first lead of the game for the Vikings. In the fourth quarter the Packers drove the ball into Vikings territory, but tight end [[Bubba Franks]] fumbled the ball at the two yard line, turning possession over to the Vikings. The Packers drove the ball 41&nbsp;yards on their next possession to set Dave Rayner in position to attempt a field goal. Rayner made a 44&nbsp;yard field goal with 1:34 left in the game to give the packers a 9-7 lead. The Vikings were unable to score on their last possession which granted the Packers their seventh win of the season.

On New Year's Eve, the Packers traveled to Chicago to face the Bears at Soldier Field. With the new [[NFL on television#Flexible scheduling|NFL flexible-scheduling]] intact, the game was moved to the Sunday night because of playoff implications and the possibility of it being Brett Favre's last game. However, the Packers became ineligible for a playoff bid when the [[New York Giants]] clinched a tie-breaker earlier in the day. On the first drive of the game, the Packers drove the ball 75&nbsp;yards, resulting in a 9-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre to receiver Donald Driver. Later in the first quarter, Packers defensive back [[Nick Collins]] intercepted quarterback [[Rex Grossman]], returning the ball 55&nbsp;yards for a touchdown. In the second quarter Rex Grossman threw his third interception of the game. [[Patrick Dendy]] returned the interception 33&nbsp;yards for a touchdown. The Packers finished the half winning 23-0, with their defense forcing four turnovers.

The 2006 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 88th season overall and their 86th in the National Football League.

This season resulted in an 8–8 record. After the firing of Mike Sherman,[1] the Packers hired Mike McCarthy as their head coach.[2] McCarthy helped improved the Packers from 4–12 the previous year to a .500 win average in 2006. The Packers failed to make the playoffs for the second straight year after the New York Giants gained the tie-breaker over the Packers in the last week of the 2006 NFL season.

Offseason

After some uncertainty, quarterback Brett Favre announced on April 26, 2006 that he would indeed return for the 2006 season.[3][4] The Packers also acquired Oakland Raiders three-time Pro Bowl Defensive Back Charles Woodson through free agency later that day.[5] He officially signed with the team on May 9.

The Packers drafted Ohio State linebacker A. J. Hawk with the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft on April 29, 2006. The Packers also traded star wide receiver (and potential holdout) Javon Walker to the Denver Broncos for a second round pick, which they then traded for multiple picks.

Game summary

The Packers played at Lambeau Field for the second time in five days, a Thursday night game versus their divisional rivals, the Minnesota Vikings. The game was played on the third anniversary of the passing of Irv Favre, Brett Favre's father. In the first quarter, the Packers entered the red zone on each of their drives, but only scored once on a 38-yard field goal from kicker Dave Rayner. Rayner would miss his next two field goals. The Packers defence forced the Vikings to punt on all their possessions in the first half. The Packers scored on the final play of the half with a 44-yard field goal from Dave Rayner. In the third quarter cornerback Charles Woodson intercepted Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, marking his seventh interception of the season extending a career-high. Later in the third quarter, Brett Favre was intercepted by cornerback Fred Smoot. Smoot returned the interception into the end zone, gaining the first lead of the game for the Vikings. In the fourth quarter the Packers drove the ball into Vikings territory, but tight end Bubba Franks fumbled the ball at the two-yard line, turning possession over to the Vikings. The Packers drove the ball 41 yards on their next possession to set Dave Rayner in position to attempt a field goal. Rayner made a 44-yard field goal with 1:34 left in the game to give the packers a 9–7 lead. The Vikings were unable to score on their last possession which granted the Packers their seventh win of the season.

Despite scoring only nine points, the Packers recorded 19 first downs and 319 total yards. Brett Favre completed 26 of 50 passes, gaining 285 yards. Favre also recorded two interceptions. Defensively, the Packers limited the Vikings to three total first downs and a 2–14 first down rate. The Vikings punted ten times in the game. Packers defensive end, Aaron Kampman had three sacks in the game.[41]

The game marked only the third time in NFL history when the losing team scored the only touchdown off a defensive turnover, the first coming from another 9–7 result at Lambeau Field between the Packers and Vikings with the Vikings beating the Packers in that contest.[42]

Game summary

On New Year's Eve, the Packers traveled to Chicago to face the Bears at Soldier Field. With the new NFL flexible-scheduling intact, the game was moved to the Sunday night because of playoff implications and the possibility of it being Brett Favre's last game. However, the Packers became ineligible for a playoff bid when the New York Giants clinched a tie-breaker earlier in the day. On the first drive of the game, the Packers drove the ball 75 yards, resulting in a 9-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre to receiver Donald Driver. Later in the first quarter, Packers defensive back Nick Collins intercepted quarterback Rex Grossman, returning the ball 55 yards for a touchdown. In the second quarter Rex Grossman threw his third interception of the game. Patrick Dendy returned the interception 33 yards for a touchdown. The Packers finished the half winning 23–0, with their defense forcing four turnovers.

Starting the second half, Brian Griese replaced Rex Grossman at quarterback. The Bears scored their first and only points of the game with a 75-yard touchdown pass to receiver Mark Bradley from Brian Griese in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, the Packers increased their lead with a 46-yard field goal by Dave Rayner. The Bears had the ball only once in the fourth quarter. The drive ended in an interception by Nick Collins, recording his second of the game. Late in the game, Favre was replaced by quarterback Ingle Martin. Favre was carried off the field by Donald Driver, receiving many hugs by players and coaches. In an interview after the game, Favre broke down in tears. It was still at the time unclear whether Favre will retire or return to the Packers,[44] but Favre announced in February that he would return to play with the Packers.[45]

The Packers offense recorded 373 yards of offense. Brett Favre completed 21 of 42 passes with one touchdown and one interception. On defense, the Packers forced six turnovers. Five of the turnovers were interceptions. The Bears starting quarterback Rex Grossman recorded only a 0.0 quarterback rating in one half of play. With the win, the Packers moved to 8–8, improving on their record of 4–12 from the previous year.[46]
