Here’s a couple of Packers stats to ponder:
- The Packers are one of 13 teams since 2006 (Mike McCarthy’s first year as Pack head coach) that has won 90% or better of their games when they score 30 or more points. Throughout the whole NFL, teams are 1387-197-2 (a .875 winning percentage) since ’06 when they tally 30 or more points in a regular season game. The 13 teams (with their record when scoring 30+ points in a game since 2006 in parenthesis): Jets (.947), Patriots (.942), Chargers (.924), Packers (.920), Falcons (.915), Panthers (.915), Colts (.914), Cardinals (.913), 49ers (.912), Broncos (.911), Eagles (.908), Dolphins (.906), Titans (.900). The lowest winning percentage when scoring 30+ points in a game? Tampa Bay and Washington, each with a .767 winning percentage.
- The Packers entered the second half of the 2018 season with a 3-4-1 record; they now sit at 4-5-1. In the McCarthy era, the Packers have been one of the best second half of the season teams. Green Bay is now 62-35-1 (.638 winning percentage) in Games #9 through #16 since 2006. That places them third in the NFL in this stat. The Patriots top the list with a 78-20 (.796) record in Games #9-#16 since 2006; the Steelers are second at 67-30 (.691). Green Bay tops the NFC with Dallas second at 57-40 (.588). The Pack since 2006 is 25-24 on the road in games #9-#16 and 37-11-1 at home in those second half of the season contests.
