They are two of the league's premier franchises and have given football some of its most memorable moments. We look at some of the best.

STEELERS

1940: The Steelers become the first NFL team to officially like black people
1972: In what will become known as the "Immaculate Reception," Franco Harris grabs the ball by his fingertips just as it's about to hit the ground, runs it into the end zone, and gives birth to the second coming of Christ
1976: Lynn Swann makes a diving catch in Super Bowl X that's just a little too hard to describe right here
1997: Jerome Bettis barrels through the Bengals' defensive line for a 6-yard gain

PACKERS

1919: The Packers shatter the previous professional football record by playing two consecutive games
1967: Packers win the Ice Bowl after QB Bart Starr becomes the last player on the field not to freeze to death
1968: Vince Lombardi instills in his players the idea to carry him off the field if they win the Super Bowl
2010: Everything shitty that happened to Brett Favre
