Packers Numbers Notebook: Stats from the Packers win over Philadelphia

JordyNelson

Following are some stats you may not know from the Packers 53-20 win over the Eagles.

1. Jordy Nelson had his fifth play for 50 yards or more in the contest. It was his fifth such play of the season. He is tied with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin for most plays of 50 yards or more this season. Since 2010, Nelson has had 10 such plays, tied for second in the NFL.

2. The Packers scored 10 or more points in the first quarter for the fifth time this year. They are 4-1 in such games. Since 2010, Green Bay is 18-3 when they score 10 or more points in the first quarter.

3. The Pack had a 30-6 lead at halftime in the game. They are now 20-0 since 1966 in games where they have a lead of 24 or more points at halftime.

4. Green Bay held the Eagles scoreless in the first quarter, the fourth time they have done so this season. The Packers have now won 14 of their last 15 when they hold their opponents scoreless in the first quarter.

5. Dom Capers defense had three sacks in the game. They are 20-5-1 in games since 2011 when they have three or more sacks in a contest.

6. Green Bay scored 30 points in the first half. They are now 17-0 in games when they score 30-plus points in the first half (since 1966).

7. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb each had over 100 yards receiving in the game. It was the fourth time this pair has reached this milestone in a game together. For Cobb, he had 10 receptions, the 34th time a Packers receiver has had 10 or more catches in a game. The Packers have won their last eight games where they have a receiver with 10 or more catches in a game.

8. The Packers 53 points keep them on a pace to break the all-time record for most points scored at Lambeau Field in a season. The record is 321 points (40.1 pts./game). In the first five games at Lambeau this season the Packers have now scored 219 points (43.8 pts./game). They will need to score 103 points in the final three games (average 34.3) at home to break the record.

9. The Packers scored 50-plus points in consecutive games for the first time in franchise history. The Packers last scored 40-plus points in consecutive games in 2011 when they scored 45 in both Week #9 and Week #10. They have never scored over 40 points in three consecutive games.

10. Eddie Lacy had a rushing and receiving TD in yesterday’s game. He became the first player to have one of each since John Kuhn did it in 2010. He became the 22nd Packer to accomplish this feat. Ahman Green holds the record with nine games with at least one rushing and one pass receiving TD in the same game.

11. The 33-point victory was the fourth win by 30 or more points in a season, tying a team mark. The last time they won four games by a margin of 30 points or more in a season was 1996. If I’m not mistaken, something special happened at the end of that season… a Super Bowl win!

12. Aaron Rodgers has three TD passes against the Eagles, the 24th team he has had three or more TD passes in a game against. It was also his 42nd game in 104 career games where he had three-plus TD passes. For you trivia buffs, can you name the seven teams that Rodgers has not had a game where he threw for three or more TDs? (Answer at the end of the column.)

13. Rodgers has three TDs and over 300 yards passing in the contest. It was the 26th game of his career with three or more TD passes and 300 or more yards passing. He is seventh on the all-time list in this stat; Peyton Manning has had 51 games in his career with three-plus TD passes and 300-plus yards in the same contest.

14. The Packers had a fumble return for TD, an interception return for TD and a punt return for TD. It was the first time since 1983 when they scored by those three ways in the same game. It was in a game versus Tampa Bay.

Trivia answer: The seven teams that Aaron Rodgers has not had a game with three or more TD passes are Buffalo, Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Kansas City, New England, Oaklad and Seattle.
