On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Packers-Cowboys Press Box Notes

Posted Nov 7, 2010


PACKERS HOST COWBOYS IN PRIME-TIME SHOWDOWN

  • Green Bay (5-3) returns home to host the Dallas Cowboys (1-6) in a nationally televised contest tonight at Lambeau Field. It is the third time in the past four years that the teams have squared off in a prime-time matchup, and the fourth straight year they have met in the regular season.
  • The last time the teams met in four or more consecutive years in the regular season was from 1993-97.
  • It is the second straight Sunday night home game for the Packers, a first in franchise history.
  • Green Bay won the 2009 meeting, 17-7, at Lambeau Field on Nov. 15, and the victory proved to be one of the biggest of the season for a Packers team that entered the game with a 4-4 mark at the midway point. The win over Dallas was the springboard to a 7-1 finish for Green Bay on the way to an NFC Wild Card bid.
  • For the eighth time in the all-time series, the teams will square off at historic Lambeau Field, where the Packers hold a 6-1 edge. Most notable among the contests at Lambeau was the 1967 NFL Championship, the famed ‘Ice Bowl’, widely considered the greatest NFL game of all-time.   
  • After Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry turned it into one of the league’s great rivalries, the Cowboys-Packers series reached another peak in the 1990s with some memorable playoff battles.
  • Though the Cowboys have taken 11 of the last 14 overall meetings, the all-time regular-season series remains close, with Dallas owning a slight 12-11-0 advantage.
  • The Packers and Cowboys represent two of the proudest and most popular clubs in the NFL. They have combined for 17 NFL championships (Green Bay 12, Dallas 5) and eight Super Bowl titles.  
  • Green Bay enters tonight’s game having won seven of its last eight at Lambeau Field, and has a 22-8 mark (.733) in the last 30 regular-season games at home. That home record ranks No. 1 among NFC teams over that span.
  • Green Bay will enjoy its bye in Week 10, the latest bye the Packers have ever had. Since 1994, the Packers are 11-5 (.688) in the game heading into the bye.
