Packers Numbers Crunches: Week #15 win over the Bears

pack-bears

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 30-27 win over the Chicago Bears on December 18.

  1. Game time temperature was 9 degrees. The Packers are now 7-8 in games when the temperature is below 10 degrees, 3-5 on the road and 4-3 at home. Of the 13 NFL games that were played below 10 degrees since 2000, the Packers have played in seven of them.
  2. Green Bay has now won seven of their last eight games when they score first on the road. They are 43-19 when they score first on the road since 2000.
  3. The Packers held the Bears scoreless in the first quarter. The Pack is 39-7 since 2010 when they hold their opponents scoreless in the first quarter.
  4. Green Bay allowed four sacks in the game, which normally is not a good sign for the team. They had lost six straight when the QB is sacked four or more times. The team is now 10-18 since 2010 when they allow four or more sacks in a contest.
  5. The game was tied at halftime, 10-10. Until yesterday’s game, the Packers had lost seven straight when the game was tied at half.
  6. Ty Montgomery had 16 carries for 162 yards. It was the most rushing yards in a game by a Packer since Samkon Gado had 172 yards in a game in 2005. Montgomery averaged 10.1 yards per carry; he was the first Packers runner to average over 10 yards per carry in a game where he rushed for over 150 yards since Ahman Green averaged 10.9 in a game in 2004.
  7. The Packers defense had four takeaways and is now 33-4 since 2010 when they get four or more takeaways in a game.
  8. Montgomery had two rushing TDs to go along with his 162 yards rushing. He is the first Packers’ back to have 150 or more rushing yards and two rushing scores since Green in 2004. He became only the third Packers player to get two TD runs and 150 or more yards in a game… the others are Jim Taylor and Green.
  9. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix had two interceptions for the second time in his career and the second time this season. He had a pair of picks on November 6 versus the Colts.
  10. The Packers had three rushing TDs and have now won 11 of their last 12 when they get three or more rushing TDs in a game.
  11. Green Bay scored 17 points in the third quarter. They are now 6-1 since 2000 when they score 17 or more points in the third quarter. Since 2000, Green Bay is 6-0 when they score 17 or more points in the first quarter; 19-2 when they score 17 points or more in the second quarter; and 11-2 when they score 17 or more points in the fourth quarter.
  12. Green Bay had a 17-point lead going into the fourth quarter. The Bears did tie the score, but the Packers won with time running out on a Mason Crosby field goal. The team has now won 40 straight when they have a lead of 17 points or more going into the final period (their last loss was in 2003 to Kansas City). Since 1970, Green Bay is 95-2 in games when they have a 17-point lead or more going into the fourth quarter.
  13. The Bears scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game. That’s usually not a good sign for the Packers. Since 1970, Green Bay is now 4-18 when their opponents tally 17 or more points in the fourth quarter.
  14. The Pack had 226 yards rushing. They have now won 12 consecutive games when they get 200 or more rushing yards in a game and are 42-3-2 since 1970 when they top the 200-yards rushing mark in a contest.
  15. This was only the 11th regular season start in Aaron Rodgers career where he did not throw a TD pass. The team is now 4-7 in those games.
  16. With three rushing TDs and no TD passes in the game, Green Bay is now 9-0 since 1970 when they get three or more rushing TDs and no TD passes in a contest.
  17. Mason Crosby was 3-for-3 in field goals in the win. It was the 36th regular season game where Crosby had three or more made FGs. Green Bay is 29-7 in those games.
  18. Jordy Nelson had the big catch at the end of the game and finished with seven receptions for 124 yards. Green Bay is now 21-3 in games when Jordy gains over 100 yards receiving.
  19. The Pack had 226 yards rushing on 23 attempts, 9.8 yards per carry. That 9.8 mark set a team record. The previous high was 9.2 in a game in 2010 when they had 157 yards on 17 carries.
  20. Green Bay has now won 16 of their last 17 games when they score 30 or more points. They are 39-5 in away games since 2000 when they score 30 or more points.

Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 38-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks on December 11.

  1. The Packers have now won four of their last five against NFC West opponents. They are 16-7 against the NFC West during the Mike McCarthy era and 9-2 at home against that division since 2006.

Since 2000 the Packers have scored 25 TDs of 60 or more yards; Jordy Nelson has been on the receiving end of 10 of those scoring plays.
  4. Rodgers had three TD passes in the game and now has 32 for the season. It is his sixth season with 30+ TD passes tying him with Tom Brady for fourth place on the all-time list of most 30+ TD pass seasons in the league. Drew Brees, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning are tied for first with nine seasons with 30 or more TD passes.
  5. Mason Crosby missed a field in yesterday’s game, although it did not factor in the final decision. Green Bay is 10-4 since 2014 in games when he misses a field goal attempt. Crosby had eight points in the game (one field goal and five extra points). The Pack is 65-16-1 in games when Crosby tallies eight or more points in a contest.
  6. Green Bay scored first in the game and has now won six straight at home when they score first.
  7. Damarious Randall had two of the team’s five interceptions. The Packers are 23-3 in the last 26 times when a player has two or more picks in a game for the team.
  8. The team has now won 21 straight when they have four or more interceptions in a game. In the 39 games in history where the team had five or more interceptions, the team is 36-3 with two of those losses coming in 1953 and one in 1955.

  11. Rodgers QBR for the game was 150.8, his fourth career game with a QBR over 150. The Packers are 17-0 when Rodgers has a QBR of 135 and above, and they are 30-2 when his QBR in a game is 120 or above.
  12. Jordy Nelson had his 12th career game with multiple TD receptions. He is tied with Sterling Sharpe with 12 games with 2+ TD receptions. Antonio Freeman tops this category for the team with 13 such games.
  13. The Packers allowed only 10 points in the game and have now won 13 straight when they allow 10 or fewer points in a game. They are 28-1 in games since 2006 when the opposition scores 10 or fewer points. They have now won 53 straight games at home when they hold the opposition to 10 or fewer points; the last loss was in 1991 when the Bears won 10-0 in a game on November 24.

  2. This is the first four-game losing streak for the Packers since 2008. They had the second longest time-span of not having a four-game losing streak coming into yesterday’s game. The New England Patriots top the league… they have not had a four-game losing streak in a season since 2002.
