- Davante Adams had a pair of TD receptions in the game, the second time in his career. Green Bay is 18-2 in the last 20 games when a receiver gets two or more TD receptions in a contest.
- The Packers have won six of the last seven games on the road when they score first. Since 2006, the Pack is 25-15 when they score first in an away game.

Here are some stats you might not know from Green Bay’s win over the Patriots.
1. The Packers are now 6-0 this season in games at Lambeau Field. With remaining home games versus Atlanta and Detroit, the Pack could have their first undefeated home season since 2011. In the Super Bowl era (since 1966) the Packers were unbeaten at home in 1996, 1997, 2002 and 2011.
2. Green Bay held the Patriots to only seven points in the second half. The Packers have now won 31 straight in games when they hold their opponents to seven points or less in the second half in home games. They have won 25 of their last 29 games (all games) when they hold the opposition to seven or fewer points in the second half.
3. With nine wins and four games remaining, the Packers will likely end up with 10 or more wins for the 10th time in a season since 2000. Indianapolis and New England have each had 12 10-win seasons since 2000, tops in the NFL. The Packers are tied with the Eagles for most 10-win seasons since 2000 by NFC teams with nine.
4. Green Bay and New England played the eighth turnover-less game in the NFL this year. It was the Packers first such game this season; the Patriots have now played in two such games.
5. Rookie receiver Davante Adams led the Green Bay receivers with six catches for 121 yards. It was the 10th game in Packers history that a rookie receiver had 100 or more yards receiving in a game and the first since October 29, 2007 when James Jones had three catches for 107 yards. Adams is the eighth rookie receiver to have 100-plus receiving yards in a game (Greg Jennings and Sterling Sharpe did it twice in their rookie campaigns). The other four rookies to have 100 or more yards receiving in a game: Ruvell Martin, Lee Morris, Gerry Ellis and James Lofton.
6. The Pack held the Patriots scoreless in the third quarter. They are 18-2 since 2011 in games where they hold the opponents scoreless in the third quarter.
7. Green Bay had the ball for over 36 (36:35 to be exact) minutes in the game, a 13-minute advantage over the Patriots. Since 2000, the Packers 33-5 when they have a time of possession over 35 minutes (non-overtime games).
8. The Packers had a 23-14 lead at halftime in the game. They have now won 68 of their last 73 games when they hold the lead at halftime at home.
9. Placekicker Mason Crosby had four field goals. Since 1960, Green Bay is 39-1 in games where their kicker has four or more field goals. The only loss was in 1986 when Al Del Greco had four field goals in a 25-12 loss to the Bears.
10. There are seven quarterbacks in NFL history with 300 or more career touchdown passes. Yesterday’s opposing QB, Tom Brady, is one of the seven. Here’s a look at how well (win-loss record) each of these seven QBs has done in games versus the Packers: Peyton Manning, 527 TD passes (1-2 against the Packers); Brett Favre, 508 TD passes (2-2 against the Packers); Dan Marino, 420 TD passes (5-1 against the Packers); Drew Brees, 390 TD passes (3-3 against the Packers); Tom Brady, 387 TD passes (2-2 against the Packers); Fran Tarkenton, 342 TD passes (13-14-1 against the Packers); John Elway, 300 TD passes (2-1-1 against the Packers).

Here’s 10 interesting stats from the Packers 27-24 win over Miami yesterday.
1. Aaron Rodgers had three (or more) TD passes and no interceptions for the third consecutive game. He previously did that in games 7-9 in 2011 and Games 14-16 in the 2012 season. He has never had four straight games with 3+TD passes and no interceptions. In addition, it was also the fourth straight game that Rodgers had at least one TD pass and no picks. He also did that in Games 9-12 in 2010. He has never had five consecutive games with at least one TD pass and no interceptions.
2. John Kuhn carried the ball four times for 15 yards in yesterday’s contest. It was the most rushes in a game for Kuhn since he had four on December 2, 2012. The most carries Kuhn has had in a game with the Packers was 13 against the Cowboys on November 7, 2010. He also had a career-high 50 yards in that game.
3. With six catches for 77 yards, rookie receiver Davante Adams became the 12th first-year player to have six or more catches in a game for the Packers since 1966. The other rookies to accomplish this: Gerry Ellis, Sterling Sharpe, Keith Woodside, Kenneth Davis, Ruvell Martin, Lee Morris, Ryan Grant, Greg Jennings, LeShon Johnson, James Jones and Eddie Lacy. Ellis, Sharpe and Woodside each had eight receptions in a game, most by a Packers rookie in the Super Bowl era.
4. The Packers had the lead going into the fourth quarter of the game, 17-10. It was the 26th time since 2010 that they had the lead after the third quarter in a road game. They are now 20-6 in such games.
5. Florida games have not been very positive experiences for the Packers. Yesterday was only the second win in Miami for the Pack in eight tries. Green Bay is now 16-21-1 (.434 winning percentage) in games in Florida against Jacksonville, Miami and Tampa Bay. In games at Lambeau Field, the Packers are 21-12 (.636 winning percentage) against Florida teams.
6. Green Bay allowed the Dolphins to score 14 points in the fourth quarter yesterday. It was the 35th time that has happened since the 2000 season. The Packers are now 19-16 in such games. Of those 35 games, 24 of them happened on the road; 10 of the last 11 times has happened on the road.
7. Rodgers completed 24 of 42 passes in the contest, a 57.1 completion percentage. It was the 22nd time in Rodgers starts that his completion percentage was under 60 percent. The Packers are now 8-14 in games where Rodgers completes less than 60 percent of his passes in a game. He is 1-1 in the playoffs in such games.
8. Miami scored 21 points in the second half against the Packers defense. Since the 2000 season, the Packers are now 12-22 in games when they allow their opponents to score 20 or more points in the second half. Prior to yesterday’s game, Green Bay had lost six of their last nine games when the opposition tallied 20 or more in the second half.
9. Jordy Nelson had another big game with nine receptions and 107 yards receiving. The Packers are 8-1 (including the playoffs) when Nelson has nine or more catches in a game; they are 15-2 in all games where Nelson has 100 or more yards receiving.
10. Prior to yesterday’s game, the Packers had their worst franchise record against the Miami Dolphins. The Pack was 3-10 (.231 winning percentage) against Miami before yesterday’s contest. They are now 4-10 (.286 winning percentage) against Miami. That means that the Packers “worst” opponent are now the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers are 2-7-1 (.250 winning percentage) against Kansas City.
