PACKERSTATS-Game #15-2019 season

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 23-10 road win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, December 23.

  • The Packers have held their opponents under 16 points in each of their last four games. They have held the opposition under 20 points in eight of their 15 games so far this season, compiling an 8-0 record in those contests.
  • Green Bay has scored 20 or more points in 12 of their games this season. They are 11-1 in those games.
  • The Packers were 13-6-2 against the Vikings this decade.
  • Green Bay has now won three straight Monday night games in December. They are 7-4 all-time on Monday night in December.
  • This was the 15th game of the season. The Pack is 14-6 in the 15th game of the season since 2000.
  • That was only the third victory on the road versus an NFC North team in their last eight contests. They are 18-11 versus NFC North teams on the road since 2010.
  • They saw their top three offensive weapons, Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams each commit a turnover in the game. It was only the second time this season the Packers had three or more turnovers in a game. Ironically, they won both games. Since Rodgers took over as QB in 2008, the Packers are now 5-17 in games where they have three or more turnovers in a game.
  • The Vikings scored first in the game after an Aaron Jones fumble. Since 2000, the Packers are now 33-54 (.379) in road games when the opponents score first.
  • Mason Crosby was three-for-three in field goal attempts in the game. He has now made 46-of-51 field goal attempts against the Vikes, a .902 percentage rate. The 46 made against Minnesota is the most versus any team in his career. He has made three or more field goals in a game 44 times in his career with the Packers. The team is 36-7-1 (.830) in those games.
  • Aaron Rodgers had an interception in the game, only the third this season. It is the 64th game in his career that he had an interception. Green Bay is 29-35 (.453) in games where Rodgers has one or more interceptions. It was only the fifth game in his career where he had at least one interception and did not have a TD pass in the same game. This was the first of those five games where the Packers won the game.
  • Za-Darius Smith had 3.5 sacks in the game. That’s the most sacks by a Packers player in a game since Clay Matthews had 3.5 sacks in a September 13, 2012 game against the Bears. He became the eighth Packers player to have 3.5 or more sacks in a game since 1982. Green Bay is 7-1 since 1982 when they have a player accumulate 3.5 or more sacks in a game.
  • Green Bay was behind 10-9 at halftime. The team is now 21-51 (.292) since 2000 in road games when they are behind at halftime.
  • Kevin King made his fifth interception of the year, the sixth of his career. Green Bay has never lost when King makes an interception.
  • Davante Adams had 13 receptions for 116 yards. The 13 catches tied his career high. It was his ninth career game with 10 or more receptions. That is the most in Packers history (since 1950). Donald Driver and Sterling Sharpe are tied for second with seven games with 10 or more catches. It was the third game in his career that Adams had 12 or more catches in a game; that is also a Packers record. Jordy Nelson, Ken Payne and Vince Workman are the only other Packers to have a regular season game with 12 or more catches since 1950.
  • Aaron Jones scored a pair of rushing TDs in the game and now has 19 touchdowns for the season. That ties him with Jim Taylor (19 in 1962) for the most TDs in a season by a Packers player. Jones has one game to try to break the single-season record of TDs of 20 held by Ahman Green since 2003. There have been 24 NFL players who have scored 20 or more touchdowns in a single season. Jones would become the 25th if he scores next week against the Lions.
  • Green Bay had a 17-10 lead at the end of the third quarter. Green Bay has now won 10 straight road games when they have a lead of seven points or more. The Pack is 46-3 (.939) in road games since 2000 when they go into the fourth quarter with a lead of seven points or more.
  • Kenny Clark had a sack for the third straight game.
  • Aaron Jones became the 14th Packers player to rush for 150 or more yards in a game. He carried the ball 23 times for 154 yards. Green Bay is 7-1 in games where Jones gets 90 or more rushing yards; they are 7-2 in games where Jones carries the ball 15 or more times in a game.
  • The Packers defense allowed the Vikings to gain only 139 total yards. That is the lowest total by a Packers’ opponent since they held Tampa Bay to only 109 total yards in a game on December 21, 2014. The Pack has now won 11 straight games when they hold the opposition to under 150 total yards in a game.
  • The Vikings had only seven first downs in the contest. Green Bay is 25-5-1 (.823) in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) in games where they hold the opponents to less than 10 first downs.
  • Green Bay scored in every quarter in the game. The Packers are now 20-2-1 since the 2015 season when they score in every quarter of a game.
  • The Packers have won each of their four games this month. They have a chance to go 5-0 in December for the first time in team history if they defeat the Lions on December 29.
  • The Pack is 5-0 versus NFC North opponents this season. If they defeat the Lions next week, they will go 6-0 versus the NFC North for the first time since 2011.
  • Aaron Rodgers had a Passer Rating of 68.3. When Rodgers has a Passer Rating under 70, the Packers are a dismal 4-11.
  • Kirk Cousins had a Passer Rating of 58.8, the sixth lowest in his career in a game he started. His teams are 0-6 when he has a Passer Rating under 60. Even more remarkable is that when Cousins has a Passer Rating below 85 in his career, his teams are 1-26… yes, 1-26. Cousins had two games with a Passer Rating under 60 this season, both against the Packers.
  • The Packers had 383 total yards to only 139 for the Vikings. It was the 13th time in team history that they had over 350 total yards and held their opponents to under 150. They are 11-2 in those games.
  • Green Bay had 37:32 time of possession to the Vikings 22:28. Green Bay is 42-5 (.894) in non-overtime games when they have 37 or more minutes TOP in a contest.

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.
  • Green Bay placekicker Mason Crosby connected on three field goals and two extra points for 11 points. It was the 56th regular season game in his career where he had 10 or more points in a game. The Packers are 47-8-1 (.848) in those games when Crosby scores 10 or more points.
  • 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.
  • Allen Lazard led the Packers with 65 yards receiving in the game. Prior to that game, Lazard had one career catch for seven yards in a game versus the Lions last year. Lazard became the 37th different receiver who has caught a TD pass from Aaron Rodgers.

  • Green Bay had 447 total yards in the game. Since 2010, they are 35-10-1 (.772) in games where they have 400 or more total yards in a game.

Packerstats 2018: Game 15, 44-38 OT win over the Jets

 

PACKERSTATS-Game #15-2018 season

Written and Compiled by Jerry Tapp

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 44-38 overtime win over the New York Jets on December 23.

  • The Pack’s win over the Jets came in the 15th game of the season. The Packers are 18-7 (.720) in Game #15 games since 1994. That is the second-best winning percentage of all the NFL teams in Game #15 games. The New England Patriots are 19-6 (.760) in Game #15 games since ’94.
  • Green Bay is now 5-8 (.385) in regular season games versus the Jets. They are one of four teams that the Packers have an all-time regular season winning percentage under .400; the others… Kansas City Chiefs (3-7-1 .318), Miami Dolphins (5-10 .333) and Buffalo Bills (5-8 .385). The victory on Sunday was only the second time in history that the Packers have defeated the Jets on their home field.
  • With the win on the road, the Packers are now 7-23-1 since 1970 in road games against AFC East teams.
  • Since 2000, the Packers are now 21-18 (.538) in all road games in December.
  • The Jets scored first in the game. The Packers are 4-4 this season when their opponents score first in the game; they are 2-4-1 when they, the Packers, scored first in a 2018 contest.
  • New York rookie QB Sam Darnold had a 128.4 Passer Rating in the game. It was the second highest ever Passer Rating by a rookie QB against the Packers; topping the list is a 149.6 Passer Rating by rookie QB Charlie Batch of the Detroit Lions on October 15, 1998.
  • Darnold became the seventh rookie QB in history to have three TD passes in a game against the Packers. The Packers defense has given up three TD passes to a rookie QB in three straight seasons: 2016-Dak Prescott (Dallas); 2017-DeShone Kizer (Cleveland) and Darnold this season.
  • Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers passed the 4,000 yards passing mark for the seventh season in his career. That places him in a tie for sixth in this stat with Detroit’s Matthew Stafford. The players ahead of Rodgers: Peyton Manning (14 4,000-yards passing seasons), Drew Brees (12), Tom Brady and Philip Rivers (10) and Matt Ryan (8).
  • Jets returner Andre Roberts returned a kickoff for a TD. It was the first kickoff returned for TD against the Packers since Indianapolis returned a kickoff for TD on November 6, 2016. It’s interesting to note that the Packers have now won seven of their last eight games when an opposing player returns a kickoff for a TD.
  • The Jets had a 21-17 lead at halftime. Since 2000, the Packers are now 9-27 (.250) in games when the opposition tallies 20 or more points in the first half. They are now 4-20 (.167) in road games since 2000 when their opponents score 20 or more points in the first half.
  • Green bay running back Jamaal Williams had 15 carries for 95 yards in the game. The 95 yards rushing was the second-most in a game in his career. With six receptions for 61 yards, Williams had 156 total yards for the day… that was a career-high.
  • Davante Adams had the game-winning TD reception. Adams turns 26 today (December 24) and has 39 career TD receptions. That is the 10th most TD receptions by a player prior to turning 26. Randy Moss tops the list with 60.
  • Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby made all three of his field goal attempts. The Packers are 25-7 (.781) in games when Crosby is perfect in a game with at least three field goal attempts.
  • Rodgers had a pair of TD runs in the game. It was only the second regular season game in his career that he scored two TDs (the other was October 2, 2011 against Denver).
  • Rodgers two TD runs and a two-point conversion run tallied him 14 points in the game. That was the most points he scored in a game in his career. Paul Hornung holds the team record with 33 points scored in a game. Rodgers became the 42nd Packers player to score 14 or more points in a game since 1950.
  • Jets QB Sam Darnold became the first rookie QB in history to have three TD passes, 300 or more yards passing and no interceptions in a game versus the Packers.
  • Green Bay is 14-8 (.636) since 2000 in games where both teams score 30 or more points in a game.
  • Rodgers had 442 yards passing in the game, tied for the second-most in his career. His career-high is 480 yards passing in a 2013 games versus the Redskins. Green Bay is 5-2 in the seven games where Rodgers has 400 or more yards passing.
  • Davante Adams had 11 catches in the game, the third most in his career. Green Bay is 4-3 in games when Adams has 10 or more catches in a contest. Adams had 71 yards receiving in the game; the 71 yards receiving was the fewest he has had in a game where he had 9 or more catches.
  • Green Bay scored 18 points in the fourth quarter. They are now 32-4 (.889) in games in their history when they score 18 or more points in the fourth quarter.
  • The Pack had 20 running attempts in the game. They are now 20-11-1 (.641) since 2016 in games when they run the ball at least 20 times in a game. They are 5-3-1 in games this season when they have 20 or more rushing attempts, 1-5 when they have fewer than 20 rushing attempts in a game.
  • Green Bay had 540 total yards in the game. They are now 22-2-1 (.900) in team history when they have 500 or more total yards in a game.
  • For the first time in a game in team history, the Packers had five receivers gain 60 or more yards via catches. Equanimeous St. Brown led the way with 94 receiving yards. He was followed by Marques Valdes-Scantling (75), Davante Adams (71), Jake Kumerow (68) and Jamaal Williams (61).
  • The game was the second-highest scoring overtime game in Green Bay history. The Pack lost an overtime game to the Falcons in Atlanta on November 27, 1983, 47-41, a combined 88 points.
  • The 44-38 final score was the fifth time in NFL history that a game ended with that score. The last time was in 2012 when Carolina defeated New Orleans 44-38 on December 30.

Packerstats 2018: Game #13, 34-20 win over Atlanta

Written and Compiled by Jerry Tapp

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 34-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons on December 9.

  • It was 26 degrees at game time. Since 2010, the Packers are 17-5-1 (.761 winning percentage) in games where the temperature is below 32 degrees at game time.
  • Green Bay is now 12-5 (.706) since 2000 against the NFC South.
  • The Packers now have an 18-16 lead in the all-time series against the Falcons (that includes a 2-2 record in the playoffs). Since 2010, Green Bay has won five of the nine games versus Atlanta.
  • The Packers won the coin toss and are now 30-7-1 (.803) in games at Lambeau Field since 2010 when they win the coin toss.
  • Atlanta scored first in the game. The Pack is 11-21 (.344) since 2014 in games when the other team scores first.
  • Atlanta’s Julio Jones had eight receptions for 108 yards. It was his third career game against the Packers where he had 100 or more yards receiving. He is the 12th player in history to have three or more 100-yard receiving games against Green Bay. Randy Moss tops the list with seven.
  • Davante Adams had another TD reception in the game, his 10th game this year with a TD reception. With three games remaining, Adams has a shot at the Green Bay record which is 11 games with a TD reception. Jordy Nelson had a TD in 11 games in 2016; Sterling Sharpe had TD catches in 11 games in 1992 and 1994.
  • Bashaud Breeland had a TD on an interception, the first “Pick-6” for the Packers since Damarious Randall on October 8, 2017. The Packers have now won 16 straight when they have a player score a TD on an interception.
  • Mason Crosby had a pair of field goals in the game giving him 301 for his career. He became the 31st kicker in NFL history to reach 300 made field goals in a career. His 80.1% field goal percentage ranks 20th of the 31 kickers who have 300 or more career field goals made. Three other kickers who played for Green Bay are also on the list of those with 300 or more career field goals: Ryan Longwell, Al Del Greco and Jan Stenerud.
  • The Packers had a 20-7 lead at halftime. They have now won 29 straight games when they score 20 or more points by halftime in home games. Since 2000, Green Bay is 40-2 (.952) in home games when they score 20 or more points in the first half.
  • Aaron Rodgers had 44 yards rushing in the game. That’s the most yards rushing for ARod in a game this season and the most since he had 60 yards rushing in a game on October 30, 2016… also a game against the Falcons.
  • Randall Cobb was on the receiving end of a Rodgers TD pass. It was the 33rd game that Cobb caught a TD pass; Green Bay is 23-10 (.697) in those games.
  • Rodgers broke the NFL record for most passes without an interception with 358 pass attempts. To put that record in perspective, there have been 930 times when a QB has passed 358 or more times in an NFL season. The fewest interceptions by a QB with 358 or more pass attempts in a season are two by Tom Brady in 2016. Of those 930 QBs with 358 or more pass attempts in an NFL season, 806 of those QBs had at last 10 interceptions that season.
  • Clay Matthews had a sack. Green Bay is 45-18-1 (.711) in games when Matthews has at least a half-sack or more in a contest.
  • Green Bay had scored 34 points heading into the fourth quarter. They have won 94 of their last 98 games where they had 30 or more points on the scoreboard heading into the fourth quarter.
  • Breeland became the 12th Packer since 2002 to have an interception and fumble recovery in the same game for the team.
  • Aaron Jones had a rushing TD for the fifth straight game. He became the 110th player in NFL history to have a rushing TD in five straight games. Other Packers on the list: Paul Hornung (7 straight games), Ryan Grant and Terdell Middleton (six straight games each). The NFL record is 18 straight games with a rushing TD by LaDainian Tomlinson.
  • Rodgers had two TD passes and no interceptions in the game. It was the 69th game in his career that he had at least two TD passes and no interceptions in a game. He is fifth in this stat in the league; Tom Brady has 100 games, Drew Brees 77, Brett Favre 74 and Peyton Manning 73. Green Bay is 59-10 (.855) in games when Rodgers has two or more TD passes with no interceptions in a game.
  • The Pack has now won 15 straight at home when they tally 30 or more points in a game. The team is 57-3 (.950) since 2000 at home when they reach the 30 point mark.
  • Green Bay had zero turnovers. They are 38-4-2 (.886) at home since 2000 when they do not have a turnover in the game.
