The Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears rivalry series hasn't been especially competitive lately, but it's still a heated one in the NFC North.

These matchups tend to bring out the best (and most creative) of the two teams, and that included an amazing fake field goal touchdown by the Packers in a 2012 matchup.

Crabtree was never much of an offensive contributor, catching 18 passes in three seasons for the Pack, but he contributed in a big way on this play.

You also have to give head coach Mike McCarthy and special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum big props on this one — watching in real time it's hard to notice the ball even goes to Crabtree. That was clearly the case for the Bears' special teams too, as only one player was even remotely in position to stop this one.

The Packers will kick off their 2020 season with a Week 1 matchup against another division rival in the Minnesota Vikings.
