In the 1980’s the Packers struggled against the mighty Chicago Bears, who had reasserted themselves as the “Monsters of the Midway.” On November 5, 1989, the two clubs squared off for the 139th time. But their final matchup of the decade was one that would live on forever. With 41 seconds left on fourth-and-goal from the Chicago 14-yard line, Packers quarterback Don Majkowski was flushed to his right. After a pump fake, he found Sterling Sharpe streaking across the end zone for the game-tying touchdown. But a penalty flag for Majkowski being over the line of scrimmage nullified the play – and the Packers win.

But that’s when instant replay intervened and overturned the call, to the jubilation of the sold-out Lambeau Field crowd and a generation of Packers fans, giving them the taunt…”Upon Further Review.”

On the latest Tales From 1265, join Doug Russell for a deep dive into the opening salvo in the turning of the tide in the storied Packers-Bears rivalry back to Green Bay.
