The Eagles and Packers, have a long history that includes one another as they tend to re-write history whenever they cross paths.
One of the things that make covering the NFL fun is every team, every rivalry, and every game carries an accompanying story. The Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers aren’t rivals per se. Birds fans don’t hold the same angst towards Green Bay that they carry for the New York Giants, Washington Commanders, or Dallas Cowboys, but this still feels like a rivalry. It may as well be. These are two of the NFL’s most storied franchises who at times are companion pieces in some well-known NFL moments.
The Pack was born in 1919. The Birds began their NFL journey 14 seasons later in 1933. Guess who their first road game was against.
They don’t meet every season, but they meet often enough. More often than not, they provide some great theatre having seen each other in the regular season, during the postseason, and though it will never happen again, during a game to decide the NFL’s king.
Gather around the campfire ladies and gentlemen. We have a handful of stories to tell. Two storied brands with two die-hard fan bases, here’s a look at six unforgettable tales involving two of the game’s most popular franchises.
