This date '05: Bengals beat Packers, fan takes ball from Favre

October 30, 2005

The Bengals beat the Packers 21-14 at PBS. 

In the final minute of the 4th quarter a fan jumped from the stands behind Green Bay's bench and ran onto the field with 28-seconds left in the game.

As Green Bay QB Brett Favre went back to pass, attempting to lead a game-tying drive, the fan came from behind and grabbed the ball. He raced down the field, celebrating, until security guards tackled him. 

The clock was reset and Favre was then sacked by Bengals defensive end Duane Clemons.

The fan was sentenced to 230 hours of community service and fined $200. While on probation, he was banned from Paul Brown Stadium and the Reds' Great American Ball Park. A charge of resisting arrest was dropped.

Favre tossed five interceptions in the losing effort, including picks on four consecutive possessions.
