PACKERSTATS-Game #14-2019 season

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 21-13 home win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, December 15.

  • The last five Packers-Bears games have been decided by eight points or less. In fact, 11 of the last 15 Packers-Bears games have been one-score games (decided by eight points or less).
  • The Packers will end this decade with a 17-4 record against the Bears. They have won four straight at Lambeau against the Bears.
  • Green Bay is 18-4 at Lambeau Field in December since 2010.
  • Temperature at game time was a balmy 11 degrees. Since 2000, the Pack is 10-6-1 in games that were below 20 degrees at game time.
  • Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected on a TD pass. The Packers have won four of their last five games in which Adams has a receiving TD.
  • The Packers scored in the first quarter and have now won 10 of their last 11 games at Lambeau Field when they score in the first quarter. The Packers are 22-7-1 (.750) since 2015 in games at Lambeau when they score in the first quarter.
  • Kenny Clark had a pair of sacks and three tackles for loss in the game. The two sacks tied a career high. He also tied a career high with six solo tackles. He has 3.5 sacks in his last two games.
  • Green Bay had three takeaways and did not have a turnover. The team is 45-6 (.882) since 1966 in games where they have zero turnovers and three or more takeaways in the same game.
  • Aaron Jones had a pair of rushing TDs in the game giving him 14 rushing TDs on the season. That is the fourth most in Packers history behind Jim Taylor’s 19 rushing TDs in 1962 and Ahman Green (2003) and Taylor (1961) who each had 15 rushing TDs in a season.
  • Of Aaron Jones 16 TDs this season (14 rushing and two receiving), 15 came in Packers victories. In the three Packers losses, Jones has only one TD.
  • Davante Adams had seven receptions for 103 yards. It was his 15th career game with 100 or more yards receiving. That places him 10th on the Packers all-time last in that category. James Lofton tops the list with 32 100-yard receiving games as a Packer.
  • The Packers led 21-3 going in to the fourth quarter. Green Bay is 88-1 at Lambeau in their history when they have a lead of 18 points or more going into the fourth quarter. Their only loss was in 1952.
  • Dean Lowry had his first career interception in the game.
  • The Pack ended the season 7-1 in home games. It was their best home record in a season since they went 8-0 at Lambeau in 2014. It was the eighth season since 2000 that they won seven or more games at home in a season.
  • The 11 wins this season is the most since the 2014 season when the Packers went 12-4. The team has a chance to end the year 13-3. Thirteen wins would be the most in a season since they went 15-1 in the 2011 campaign.
  • The win yesterday was the 100th regular season win for the Packers this decade. New England tops the list with 124 wins this decade followed by Pittsburgh with 102. Green Bay and Seattle each have 100 wins this decade to top the NFC teams. New Orleans, which plays Monday night, has 97 wins this decade. Which NFC team will win the most regular season games this decade?
  • Green Bay did not score in the fourth quarter while the Bears put 10 points on the board in that quarter. Green Bay is 11-8 since 2000 in games where they go scoreless in the fourth quarter and their opponents score 10 or more points in the same quarter.
  • The Packers had only 12 first downs in the game. Usually, that is not very good news. The Packers since 2000 were 2-7 prior to yesterday’s win in games where they have 12 or fewer first downs in a contest.
  • The Bears tallied 429 in total yardage in the game. Green Bay is now 41-36-2 since 2000 in games where they allow the opposition to gain 400 or more total yards in a game.
  • Green Bay has now 24 straight games when they hold their opponents under 14 points in a game. They have now won eight straight when they score 20 or more points in a game.
