On this day in 2005...

The Vikings defeat the Packers in the first-round of the playoffs at Lambeau Field thanks to four Brett Favre interceptions.

The final touchdown of the day came on a Daunte Culpepper to Randy Moss fourth-quarter connection, which prompted Moss to deliver one of the more memorable celebrations in Vikings, if not NFL history.

Culpepper would throw for four touchdowns total, two to Moss, while Favre's interceptions sank Green Bay's chances at a comeback.

Minnesota would go on to loss to Philadelphia the next week, a performance ESPN called "self-destructing".

The Vikings would not win another playoff game until Favre joined Minnesota in 2009, a year they advanced to the NFC Championship game before Favre effectively ended their season on this throw against New Orleans.

Favre giveth, Favre taketh away.
