Packerstats 2020: Game #1, 43-34 win over Minnesota

Written and Compiled by Jerry Tapp

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 43-34 win over the Minnesota Vikings on September 13.

  • The Packers scored first in the game on a Mason Crosby field goal. They have now won six straight games when they score first. The Pack is 31-10-1 (.733) since 2015 when they score first.
  • Jaire Alexander became the first Packers player in team history to have a sack, interception and safety in the same game. Only nine NFL players have done this since 1982. Alexander became the second-youngest player to accomplish this feat.
  • Za’Darius Smith had a sack in the contest; the Packers have won their last six games when Smith has a sack.
  • Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected on a pair of TD passes. The duo has now combined on 41 TD passes. That ties Adams with James Jones for the second-most TD passes received from Rodgers in team history. Rodgers to Jordy Nelson combined on 65 TD passes to top the list.
  • Alexander’s interception was the fourth of his career. The Packers are 4-0 when Alexander has an interception.
  • The Packers led 22-10 at halftime. They are now 37-1-1 since 2010 in games where they have a lead of 10 points or more at half.
  • The 22 points at halftime was also the 39th time since 2010 that the team scored 20 or more points in the first half. They are 35-4 in those games.
  • Davante Adams had 14 catches for 156 yards. The 14 catches were a career-high; the 156 yards tied for the third-most in his career. Adams also had two TD receptions and became the 15th player in NFL history to have 14 or more catches, 150 or more receiving yards and two TD receptions in one game. It has happened 17 times in NFL history with Jerry Rice and Antonio Brown doing it twice.
  • Rodgers had four TD passes, the 24th time in his career he passed for four or more TD passes. He passed Brett Favre for fourth place on the NFL list with 24 four-TD games (Favre had 23). Drew Brees has 36 four-TD pass games, Peyton Manning is second on the list with 35 games with four or more TD passes.
  • Rodgers had a Passer Rating of 127.5 in the game. The Packers are 39-3 in games when Rodgers has a Passer Rating above 120.
  • Green Bay had a 29-10 lead going into the fourth quarter. It was their 52nd straight win when they have a lead of 15 points or more going into the fourth quarter.
  • Allen Lazard caught his fourth career TD pass. Green Bay is 4-0 in games when Lazard catches a TD pass.
  • Aaron Jones had a rushing TD in the contest. Of his 33 career regular season TDs, 26 have come in games the Packers won.
  • The Pack had 522 total yards in the game, the most in a game since December 23, 2018 when they had 540 total yards against the New York Jets in 44-38 overtime win. It was the most total yards they tallied in a season opener in team history.
  • The 77 combined points scored by the two teams was the most in the Packers-Vikings series. It topped the 75 combined points scored by the two teams on October 27, 2013 in Green Bay’s 44-31 win at Minnesota.
  • The Green Bay ground game churned out 158 yards. The Packers have now won 12 of their last 13 games when they have 150 or more yards rushing in a game.
  • The Packers did not have a turnover in the game. It was the fourth season-opening game in the last six years where they did not have a turnover in the first game of the year. The Pack has now won 10 of their last 11 games when they do not have a turnover.
  • In the battle of time of possession, the Packers had 41:16 TOP to the Vikings’ 18:44 TOP. That was the first time since 2013 that the Packers had 40 minutes or more TOP in a non-overtime game; that was also against the Vikings. In fact, of the seven times the Packers have had 40 minutes or more TOP in a non-OT game in their history, three of them were against the Vikings.
  • Giving up 34 or more points in a game usually does not equal a victory in the NFL. Since 2000, Green Bay is now 9-36 in games when they allow the opponents to score 34 or more points.
  • Since 2000, the Packers have won 14 of their season-opener games. New England tops the list with 16 season-opening victories since 2000. The Packers are tied with Denver at 14.

PACKERSTATS-Game #6-2019 season

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 23-22 win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, October 14 at Lambeau Field.

  • The Packers had three turnovers in the game while the Lions had no turnovers. How improbable was the Packers win based on their three turnovers and the Lions not having a turnover? In regular season games from 2000-2019, teams that have three turnovers and their opponents did not have a turnover have won only 36 games and have lost 597; that is a winning percentage of .057, meaning that based on these stats dating back to 2000, the Packers had about a 6% chance of winning that game on Monday because of their three turnovers and Detroit’s zero turnovers. The Packers have now won three games since 2000 when they had three turnovers and no takeaways in a contest, that is tied for the second-most in the league (the Rams have won four such games since 2000). It was Green Bay’s first win in a game where they had three turnovers and no takeaways since November 4, 2001 in a win 17-14 win over Tampa Bay.
  • Green Bay is now 25-10 (.714) in home games in October since 2000. They have won 17 of their last 20 home games in October.
  • Green Bay is now 11-8 versus the Lions since 2010, including a 7-3 record versus the Lions at home since 2010.
  • The Pack is now 33-32-1 in Monday night games since 1970. They have won five of their last six Monday night games. The 33 Monday night wins ranks seventh in the NFL; the San Francisco 49ers have the most Monday night wins with 49.
  • Green Bay won the coin toss and is now 32-8-1 since 2010 at Lambeau Field when they win the coin toss.
  • Detroit scored first in the game. The Packers are now 30-26 (.536) since 2000 in games at Lambeau Field where the opposition scores first in the contest.
  • As stated above, the Pack had three turnovers in the game. They are now 3-14 since 2010 in games where they have three or more turnovers. The Lions had zero turnovers; the Packers are now 6-24 (.200) since 2010 in games when they have no takeaways in a game.
  • Detroit put 10 points on the scoreboard in the first quarter. Green Bay is now 11-26 (.297) since 2000 when they give up 10 or more points in the first quarter of a regular season game.
  • The Packers did not score in the first quarter and are now 23-19 since 2000 in games at Lambeau when they do not score in the first quarter.
  • Detroit’s Matt Prater made five field goals in the game becoming the ninth opponent kicker to have five or more made field goals in a regular season game against the Pack.
  • The Lions had a 19-13 lead going into the fourth quarter. Since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, the Packers are 11-80-1 (.125) in games at Lambeau Field when they are behind by six or more points entering the fourth quarter.

  • The Packers sit atop the NFC North with a 5-1 record. Since 1966, Green Bay has now been 5-1 six times after six games played. In two of those years, they won the Super Bowl (1966 and 1996). The last time the Packers were 5-1 after six games was in 2007.
  • Green Bay has now won six one-point regular season games since 2000; the Dallas Cowboys top this list with 11 one-point wins since 2000.
  • Aaron Rodgers is now 31-12 in October games in his career, the most wins of any month in his career.
  • Jamaal Williams had 104 yards rushing in the game on 14 carries. It was the second-most rushing yards in a game in his career. The 7.43 yards per carry in this game was the highest of his career.
  • The Packers had 170 yards rushing in the game and is now 31-7-1 (.808) since 2000 in games where they have 170 or more yards rushing in a contest.
