Here’s 10 interesting stats from the Packers 27-24 win over Miami yesterday.
1. Aaron Rodgers had three (or more) TD passes and no interceptions for the third consecutive game. He previously did that in games 7-9 in 2011 and Games 14-16 in the 2012 season. He has never had four straight games with 3+TD passes and no interceptions. In addition, it was also the fourth straight game that Rodgers had at least one TD pass and no picks. He also did that in Games 9-12 in 2010. He has never had five consecutive games with at least one TD pass and no interceptions.
2. John Kuhn carried the ball four times for 15 yards in yesterday’s contest. It was the most rushes in a game for Kuhn since he had four on December 2, 2012. The most carries Kuhn has had in a game with the Packers was 13 against the Cowboys on November 7, 2010. He also had a career-high 50 yards in that game.
3. With six catches for 77 yards, rookie receiver Davante Adams became the 12th first-year player to have six or more catches in a game for the Packers since 1966. The other rookies to accomplish this: Gerry Ellis, Sterling Sharpe, Keith Woodside, Kenneth Davis, Ruvell Martin, Lee Morris, Ryan Grant, Greg Jennings, LeShon Johnson, James Jones and Eddie Lacy. Ellis, Sharpe and Woodside each had eight receptions in a game, most by a Packers rookie in the Super Bowl era.
4. The Packers had the lead going into the fourth quarter of the game, 17-10. It was the 26th time since 2010 that they had the lead after the third quarter in a road game. They are now 20-6 in such games.
5. Florida games have not been very positive experiences for the Packers. Yesterday was only the second win in Miami for the Pack in eight tries. Green Bay is now 16-21-1 (.434 winning percentage) in games in Florida against Jacksonville, Miami and Tampa Bay. In games at Lambeau Field, the Packers are 21-12 (.636 winning percentage) against Florida teams.
6. Green Bay allowed the Dolphins to score 14 points in the fourth quarter yesterday. It was the 35th time that has happened since the 2000 season. The Packers are now 19-16 in such games. Of those 35 games, 24 of them happened on the road; 10 of the last 11 times has happened on the road.
7. Rodgers completed 24 of 42 passes in the contest, a 57.1 completion percentage. It was the 22nd time in Rodgers starts that his completion percentage was under 60 percent. The Packers are now 8-14 in games where Rodgers completes less than 60 percent of his passes in a game. He is 1-1 in the playoffs in such games.
8. Miami scored 21 points in the second half against the Packers defense. Since the 2000 season, the Packers are now 12-22 in games when they allow their opponents to score 20 or more points in the second half. Prior to yesterday’s game, Green Bay had lost six of their last nine games when the opposition tallied 20 or more in the second half.
9. Jordy Nelson had another big game with nine receptions and 107 yards receiving. The Packers are 8-1 (including the playoffs) when Nelson has nine or more catches in a game; they are 15-2 in all games where Nelson has 100 or more yards receiving.
10. Prior to yesterday’s game, the Packers had their worst franchise record against the Miami Dolphins. The Pack was 3-10 (.231 winning percentage) against Miami before yesterday’s contest. They are now 4-10 (.286 winning percentage) against Miami. That means that the Packers “worst” opponent are now the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers are 2-7-1 (.250 winning percentage) against Kansas City.
