In 1997, he was selected to the Pro Bowl for his exceptional play on special teams, and his contributions helped the Packers to a victory in Super Bowl XXXI.

Coming to the Packers with only five games remaining in the 1996 regular season, Andre Rison played a crucial role for the Packers as they made the push to the playoffs and eventually, a Super Bowl XXXI victory. Rison caught seven passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns during the playoffs, culminating in a memorable 54-yard reception for a touchdown on Green Bay's first offensive series in the Super Bowl.
