GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With Brett Favre going into the Green Bay Packers' Hall of Fame on Saturday, we count down the best and worst moments in his 16-year career with the organization.

Here's best moment No. 3: Five touchdowns against the Chicago Bears despite playing with a badly sprained ankle.

On Nov. 5, 1995, against the Minnesota Vikings, Favre sustained a badly sprained left ankle -- an injury that required surgery after the season to remove bone spurs. He tried to finish the game but eventually yielded to backup Ty Detmer, leaving his status for the next Sunday's game against the Bears in doubt.

Not only did Favre play seven days later, but he threw a Packers' career-high (and then-franchise-record tying) five touchdowns in a 35-28 win over the arch-rival Bears.

"After what I would say was, for me, a very serious injury, I always played [well] the next week," Favre said during a recent interview with ESPN.com. "I can say games after I was injured would be one of my memorable moments."
