1. C, Donald Driver. In his breakout season, the former seventh round draft pick got 1,064 yards and nine touchdowns out of his team-high 70 receptions.

2. C, Sterling Sharpe. The touchdown pass before Favre hit Kittrick Taylor for the game-winner in his 1992 debut was the first of his career and covered 5-yards and landed in the arms of Sharpe.

3. D, Mike Tomczak. The first quarter scoring strike went from Tomczak to Vince Workman and gave the Pack a 10-0 lead in a 27-7 win over the Vikings. That TD pass also turned out to be the last by Tomczak in a Packer uniform.

4. A, David Whitehurst. While he did get into quite a few games in that five-year span, it was only in 1978 that Whitehurst was the full-time starting quarterback.

5. C, Bobby Douglass. The strong lefty ran for four touchdowns for the Bears against the Packers Nov. 4, 1973. Five years later, Douglass got into 12 games and completed 5 of 12 passes for 90 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Pack.

EXTRA CREDIT ANSWER: Cecil Isbell. In a 55-12 win over Chicago Cardinals Nov. 1, 1942, Isbell completed 10 of 21 throws for 333 yards to become the first Packer to eclipse the 300-yard barrier in a game.
