Brett Favre owns quite a few Green Bay Packers' records. He's got more passing yards (61,655), touchdowns (442) and interceptions (286) than anyone else in franchise history.

Favre is also responsible for the longest pass in Green Bay history, which happened on this epic play back in 1995.

In Week 2 of the '95 season, Favre showed off what made him so special. He was always a bit of a gambler, and this play is no different. He stands in the pocket, from deep in his own end zone, pump fakes, and uncorks a bomb to a wide-open Robert Brooks.

Brooks proceeds to do the rest, taking the ball all the way to the house. Being that it's a 99-yard touchdown, it's obviously the longest passing TD in franchise history. It's also just one of nine 99-yard passing touchdowns in NFL history.

Favre sure had his ups and downs throughout his career, but being the owner of one of the longest passing TDs in NFL history feels incredibly on brand for Green Bay's gunslinger. That it came against the division-rival Chicago Bears makes it even sweeter.
