Head coach Mike Holmgren led the team, with key performances by quarterback Brett Favre and kick returner Desmond Howard. Howard’s 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown earned him MVP honors, making this Super Bowl victory a memorable one for Packers fans.
Super Bowl XLV
In their most recent Super Bowl win, the Packers emerged victorious against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a score of 31-25 in the 2010 season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers played a pivotal role and was awarded the MVP title for his outstanding performance.
