Today’s Sports Stat: July 23, 2018

The Green Bay Packers have had Mike McCarthy as their head coach for 12 seasons. During that time the team has compiled a 121-70-1 record.

Did you know that in the McCarthy era the Packers have their best record in Game #6 and Game #13 contests (both 10-2) and their worst record in Game #8 contests (4-8)? In fact, there are games where the Packers are not above .500 in the past 12 years… Game #5, Game #8, Game #11 and Game #14

Here’s a look at the Packers record in each of the 16 games of the season since McCarthy took over as head coach.

Game #1: 8-4
Game #2: 8-4
Game #3: 7-5
Game #4: 9-3
Game #5: 6-6
Game #6: 10-2
Game #7: 8-4
Game #8: 4-8
Game #9: 8-4
Game #10: 8-4
Game #11: 5-6-1
Game #12: 8-4
Game #13: 10-2
Game #14: 6-6
Game #15: 7-5
Game #16: 9-3

Looking at this year’s schedule, the Packers play a pair of home games for Games #6 and #13; they play the 49ers at home in game #6 and Arizona at Lambeau Field in Game #13.

In the four games where they are not above .500, the Pack in 2018 play the Lions in Detroit in Game #5, the Rams in Los Angeles in Game #8, the Seahawks in Seattle in Game #11, and are at home against the Atlanta Falcons in Game #14.
