40 Packers Stats Until Opening Kickoff-August 12 (#29)

(From August 1 until the first regular season game against the Seattle Seahawks on September 10, we’ll give you a daily dose of Packers stats.)

Last season a pair of teams, the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts, came into Lambeau Field and defeated the Packers on their home field. For Dallas, it was their first win in Lambeau since 2008, while the Colts had not won on the Packers’ home turf since 1988.

Here’s a look at the last time (the year) each of the other 31 NFL franchises defeated the Packers in Green Bay.

Never: Baltimore, Denver (they did play a tie game in Green Bay)
1949: Arizona
1984: San Diego (this is the only loss the Packers have to the Chargers; they are 9-1 against the Chargers)
1987: Oakland
1988: Washington
1991: Buffalo
1999: Seattle
2003: Kansas City
2004: Jacksonville, Tennessee

Today’s Sports Stat-August 12, 2017

You would think that scoring 10 runs in a game would surely equate to a victory in the major leagues. Just ask the Brewers… that’s not always the case.

The Brewers scored 10 runs last night but were defeated by the Cincinnati Reds 11-10. It was the first time since April 21, 2015 that the Brew crew lost a game when they scored 10 runs; they lost to the same Reds on that day 16-10.

Since 1969, the Brewers franchise has lost 33 games when they scored 10 or more runs. They have won 471 games with 10+ runs, meaning they have a winning percentage of .935 when they tally 10 or more runs in a contest.

The Brewers’ loss last night was the 11th time this season that a team lost when scoring 10 runs (the Angels are the only team to have lost two games this way in 2017). The record for most games lost when scoring 10 or more runs in a season is five, held by Seattle and Colorado in 1999. In fact, the MLB season with the most games lost by a team when they scored 10+ runs in a game is 41 in 1999.

Since 2013, MLB teams that score 10 or more runs in a game are 1432-45 (a .970 winning percentage).

40 Packers Stats Until Opening Kickoff-August 11 (#30)

(From August 1 until the first regular season game against the Seattle Seahawks on September 10, we’ll give you a daily dose of Packers stats.)

In the October 20, 2016 game versus the Chicago Bears, Packers linebacker Nick Perry had a sack and an interception. It was the first time since Micah Hyde had a sack and an interception on November 23, 2014 that a Packers player had a sack and an interception in the same game.

Thirty-four times since the 1982 a Packers player has had a sack and an interception in the same game. It was done by 24 different players.

Here are the six Packers players who had a sack and an interception in the same game two or more times.

Four games with a sack and an interception: LeRoy Butler, Charles Woodson

Two games with a sack and an interception: John Anderson, Al Harris, Clay Matthews, Bryce Paup.
