Packers Numbers Crunches: Game #11


Here are several stats you may not know from the Packers 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on November 26 (the stats all reflect regular season games unless otherwise noted).

  1. The Packers are now 13-7 in regular season games versus the Bears in the Mike McCarthy era (since 2006). It is interesting to note, however, that the team is 12-3 in games versus the Bears on Sundays since 2006, but are now 1-4 in non-Sunday games versus the Bears since ’06.
  2. In their seven losses to the Bears since 2006, the Packers scored under 21 in each of those games. In 12 of their 13 wins against the Bears since 2006, they scored over 21 points.
  3. Green Bay has now lost two straight in games when they hold the opponents scoreless in the first quarter. Since 2000 the Packers are 89-26 (.774) when they hold the opponents scoreless in the first period.
  4. Eddie Lacy had a TD reception in the game. It was the first game the Packers lost when Lacy had a receiving TD (they are now 4-1). The team is 14-7-1 in games where Lacy has at least one TD.
  5. Since 2010, the Pack is now 12-15-1 in games when they are behind at half. Since 2013 that record is 4-9-1.
  6. Green Bay is now 3-3 in games since 2000 when they are behind by one point at halftime.
  7. In the last two seasons the Packers are now 1-8 in games when they trail going into the fourth quarter.
  8. Aaron Rodgers’ 62.4 QBR was the lowest of any of his starts at Lambeau Field. His previous low at home was 80.1 versus the Dallas Cowboys on September 21, 2008. His lowest career QBR was 34.3 last season in a game versus the Buffalo Bills.
  9. Rodgers has now gone five straight games with a QBR under 100, the longest stretch in his career. He also now has four consecutive games where he had a completion percentage under 60%, also the longest stretch of his career.
  10. Green Bay has two turnovers in the game and is now 4-8 in the last 12 games where they had two or more turnovers.
  11. The Pack has now lost 19 games by one score (eight points or less) since 2010. Three of the losses were at the hands of the Bears, most by any team.
  12. Green Bay had four losses in the month of November for the first time since 2013. They also had four losses in November in 2008.
  13. The Packers were held scoreless by the Bears in the second half of the game yesterday. It was the 10th time since 2006 that they did not score a point in the second half since 2006 (they are 2-8 in those games). NFL teams that do not score in the second half of a game are 56-414 (.119 winning percentage) since 2006.
  14. The Green Bay defense did not have a takeaway in the game, the 14th time since 2010. They are 4-10 in those games.
  15. Yesterday was only the second time in 13 regular season starts versus the Packers that Jay Cutler did not throw an interception.
