With Favre's touchdown pass to Antonio Freeman, the Packers reclaimed the lead with less than two minutes remaining. Down by four, Steve Young rallied his team to the Packer's 25 yard line with fourteen seconds remaining.
The Niners were able to move the ball down the field with short passes and though Jerry Rice's lone catch of the game was a fumble and recovered by the Packers, the officials thought he was down. Without instant replay instated at the time, there was no official review to correct the call.
With fourteen seconds and no timeouts remaining, Young fired a pass near the end zone that was nearly picked off by Green Bay's Craig Newsome.
Eight seconds were left when Young snapped the ball. Nearly tripping over himself stepping back under center, Young uprighted himself and threw a dart in between four Green Bay defenders to Terrell Owens.
Despite Terrell Owens four drops and a fumble, he saved his most critical catch at the end, where the play was later named as "The Catch II."
This loss was not only crushing for the Packers' playoff hopes, but this was the last game Mike Holmgren and Reggie White would be members of the Green Bay Packers.
