PACKERS CAPTURE THIRD STRAIGHT NFC NORTH TITLE
- The Packers won their third consecutive NFC North title in 2013, the first time Green Bay had captured three straight division crowns since 2002-04 and for just the third time (also 1995-97) since the league went to a divisional format in 1967.
- After a Week 13 loss at Detroit on Thanksgiving dropped the Packers to 5-6-1 on the season, Green Bay trailed both the Lions (7-5) and the Chicago Bears (6-6) in the NFC North. But the Packers would go on to win three of their last four games, highlighted by a division-clinching win at Soldier Field against the Bears in Week 17.
- Green Bay has had a winning record in each of its last five seasons (2009-13), one of only two two teams in the league (New England) to accomplish that feat. The Packers are tied for No. 2 in the league with 55 regular-season wins since '09 (with New Orleans), trailing only New England (61).
- The Packers are the only NFC team to win its division each of the last three seasons (2011-13) and one of only three teams in the league to do so over that span (Denver, New England).
- Green Bay finished with a 3-2-1 mark (.583) in NFC North games this season, the eighth straight season that the Packers posted a winning record in the division. New England was the only other team in the NFL to accomplish that feat over the past eight seasons (2006-13).
- The Packers generated 6,404 yards of total offense this season, the second most in franchise history behind only the 6,482 yards posted in 2011. Green Bay ranked No. 3 in the league in total offense with its average of 400.3 yards per game.
- For Green Bay, it marked its seventh top-10 finish in total offense in the past eight seasons.
- The Packers ranked No. 7 in the league in rushing offense with an average of 133.5 yards per game. It marked the team's best finish in the league rankings since it checked in at No. 3 in the NFL in 2003.
- The Packers ranked No. 6 in the NFL in passing offense at 266.8 yards per game, making them one of only three teams in the NFL (New England and Philadelphia) to finish in the top 10 in both passing and rushing offense this season.
- For Green Bay, it marked the first time since 2004 (No. 3 passing/No. 10 rushing) that it finished in the top 10 in the NFL in both categories.
- The Packers were tied for No. 8 in the NFL in scoring this season with an average of 26.1 points per game, the seventh straight campaign that Green Bay finished in the top 10 in the NFL in the category. New England was the only other team to do so over that span (2007-13).
- Green Bay finished No. 8 in the NFL in sacks with 44, the third time in the last four seasons that the club ranked in the top 10 in the league in the category.
BACK IN THE POSTSEASON
- With a thrilling 33-28 win over the Bears in the regular-season finale, the Packers clinched their third straight NFC North title and their 21st division crown in franchise history.
- In the 12 seasons of the NFC North (2002-13), Green Bay has captured the division title seven times (2002-04, 2007, 2011-13).
- This season marked the Packers' fifth consecutive playoff appearance (2009-13), one of only two NFL teams (New England) to do so over that span. Green Bay has advanced to the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons (2007, 2009-13).
- Green Bay's streak of five straight playoff appearances ranks second in franchise history behind only a six-season stretch from 1993-98.
- This was the Packers' 29th postseason berth in team history and their 16th appearance in the last 21 seasons. Green Bay's 16 appearances in the free-agency era (since 1993) are the most of any team in the NFL.
- The Packers currently rank No. 3 in NFL history with their 29 playoff appearances, trailing only the N.Y. Giants (31) and Dallas Cowboys (30).
- Green Bay's Wild Card contest at Lambeau Field vs. San Francisco was the Packers' 49th postseason game all-time. That is the third most in league history behind only Dallas (58) and Pittsburgh (54).
