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-Raiders press box notes

Posted Dec 11, 2011


12-0 PACKERS TO TAKE ON RAIDERS AT LAMBEAU FIELD

  • Green Bay returns home after back-to-back road games to host Oakland at Lambeau Field, the first meeting between the teams since 2007.
  • Last Sunday, Green Bay clinched the NFC North with its win over the N.Y. Giants and Detroit’s loss at New Orleans. It marked the first division title for the Packers since 2007. The Packers can clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs with a victory over the Raiders today.
  • The Packers are off to a 12-0 start for the first time in franchise history. They are just the ninth team in NFL history to begin the season with 12 consecutive victories.
  • Including playoffs, the Packers have won 18 straight games, the longest winning streak in team history (12-game streak in 1961-62). It is tied for the second-longest winning streak in NFL history, including the postseason, behind only the 2003-04 New England Patriots (21 games).
  • The Packers’ streak of 14 straight wins in the regular season (2010-11) is a franchise record, topping the previous mark of 11 in 1928-29 and 1961-62. Green Bay has also set a single-season franchise record with 12 straight regular-season wins in 2011, topping the previous mark of 10 in 1929 and 1962.
  • Green Bay holds a 6-5 edge in the all-time series with Oakland, which includes the Packers’ victory over the Raiders in Super Bowl II. The Raiders won five straight games in the series from 1972-87, but Green Bay has won the last five meetings between the teams.
  • Ironically, the last time Green Bay and Oakland met, it was also in Week 14 at Lambeau Field. The Packers won that ’07 contest, 38-7, as they clinched the NFC North title in front of their home crowd.

 

HOME COOKING

  • The Packers have won 10 straight contests at Lambeau Field and 16 of their last 17 at home. It is the longest regular-season home winning streak by Green Bay since an 11-game streak from 2001-02 and the longest current home winning streak in the NFL.
  • Green Bay’s 16-1 (.941) home mark since Week 10 of 2009 is tied for No. 1 in the NFL over that span with New England (16-1).
  • The Packers are off to their first 5-0 start at home since 2002. That season, Green Bay went on to post a perfect 8-0 mark at Lambeau Field.
  • The Packers are one of only three teams in the league that are unbeaten at home this season (Baltimore, New Orleans).
  • Green Bay is averaging 39.0 points per game at home this season, No. 2 in the NFL behind only New Orleans (39.8). The Packers’ franchise record is 38.0 ppg at home in 1942.
  • The Packers are 10-2 under Head Coach Mike McCarthy in regular-season games at home in December/January, an .833 winning percentage that ranks No. 1 in the NFC and No. 4 in the NFL over that span.

 

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

  • With a victory today, the Packers would match the franchise mark for most wins in a season with 13 (1962, 1996, 1997, 2007).
  • The Packers rank No. 1 in the NFL in scoring at 35.0 points per game...Green Bay’s 420-point total this season already ranks No. 8 in the franchise record books, 42 points shy of breaking the team single-season record of 461 points in 2009.
  • QB Aaron Rodgers – Ranks No. 3 in team history for the most TD passes in a season with 37, trailing only Brett Favre (39 in 1996, 38 in 1995) in franchise annals...Needs 156 yards passing to hit the 4,000-yard mark for the season, which would be his third 4,000-yard season in four years as a starter...Has registered a 100-plus passer rating in every game this season, a 12-game streak that is the longest single-season streak in NFL history...With the 12 games with a 100-plus rating, is tied with Steve Young (1994) and Tom Brady (2010) for the most 100-rating games in a season...Needs two TD passes today to become only the second quarterback in NFL history to throw two-plus TD passes in each of the first 13 games of the season (Colts QB Peyton Manning, 2004)...Currently ranks tied for No. 3 in NFL history for the most three-plus TD games with nine, trailing only Patriots QB Tom Brady (12 in 2007) and Dolphins QB Dan Marino (10 in 1984).
  • WR Greg Jennings – With a TD reception, will become only the third player in franchise history (Sterling Sharpe, Don Hutson) to catch 10-plus TD passes three times in a Green Bay uniform. Would also become just the six player in franchise history to post 50 TD receptions in his career.
  • WR Donald Driver – With a TD reception, will move into sole possession of the No. 3 spot for the most TD catches in franchise history. Is currently tied with WR Antonio Freeman (57).
  • CB Charles Woodson – Needs one interception for his fourth seven-plus INT season in a Green Bay uniform. CB Bobby Dillon is the only other player in team history to accomplish that feat.
  • LB Clay Matthews – Is tied for No. 1 all-time (since 1982) among Green Bay players for the most sacks in his first three seasons in the NFL with LB Tony Bennett (29.5).
  • TE Jermichael Finley – Needs 77 receiving yards to top his career high of 676 yards in 2009.

 

TODAY’S CAPTAINS

  • As per team tradition, the Packers select game captains each week.  
  • Today’s captains will be G T.J. Lang (offense), CB Charles Woodson (defense) and K Mason Crosby (special teams).

 

WEARING THE STRIPES

  • Today’s officiating crew includes referee Pete Morelli (135), umpire Ruben Fowler (71), head linesman Mark Baltz (26), line judge John Hussey (35), field judge Jon Lucivansky (89), side judge Don Carlsen (39) and back judge Rob Vernatchi (75).
