Green Bay Packers win over Chicago Bears gets Tecmo Bowl treatment (Video)


The Green Bay Packers were left for dead multiple times this season, including during their improbable Week 17 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Trailing in the final moments, quarterback Aaron Rodgers escaped pressure and flung a lobbing pass towards a wide open wide receiver, Randall Cobb.

Floating though the snow flurries, the pigskin made its way into the arms of Cobb who then ran the ball into the end zone, capping off the win which allowed the Packers to claim the NFC North crown – who just weeks earlier looked as if they’d be eliminating from the playoffs.

It was the type of play you practice with your friends in your backyard when you’re 10 years old – and apparently – it’s also the type of play that needs a recreation in the popular Nintendo game, Tecmo Bowl.

A YouTube user decided to mock up the fourth down play and re-create the moment in its full pixilated glory and yes – it’s as awesome as it sounds. Well, assuming you’re not a Bears fan of course.
