Today’s Sports Stat: December 27, 2018

The Green Bay Packers will end their 2018 season on Sunday December 30 with a game against the Detroit Lions. This will be the 16th and final game of the season.

If you were a betting man (or woman) you might place a little wager on the Packers in this game… over the past 25 seasons (from 1993-2017) the Packers have been the NFL’s best team in the 16th and final game of the season. Since ’93, the Pack is 20-5 in the 16th game of the year, tops in the league.

Detroit, on the other hand, is in the bottom 10 of winning percentages in the final game of the season since 1993. They are 9-16, a .360 winning percentage.
