MATT LaFLEUR…In his fifth season as the Packers' 15th head coach.

  • Enters his 15th season in the NFL, having previously served as an offensive coordinator for two seasons (Los Angeles Rams, 2017; Tennessee Titans, 2018), a quarterbacks coach for six seasons (Washington Redskins, 2010-13; Atlanta Falcons, 2015-16), and an offensive assistant for two seasons (Houston Texans, 2008-09).
  • In his first four seasons leading the Packers, has authored one of the greatest starts to a head-coaching career in NFL history. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, his 47 wins are the second most in league history by a head coach in his first four seasons in the NFL, trailing only George Seifert (52 in 1989-92). Green Bay's 47-19 regular-season record since 2019 ranks No. 3 in the NFL and No. 1 in the NFC.
  • Became the first coach in NFL history to post 13-plus wins in three straight seasons and his 39 wins from 2019-21 passed Seifert (38) for the most wins by an NFL head coach in his first three seasons in the league (Elias). His 39 wins are also tied for the second most by a coach over any three-season span in league history, trailing only Andy Reid's 40 wins with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2020-22 and Mike Ditka's 40 wins with the Chicago Bears from 1985-87 (Elias).
  • Guided the Packers to a 27-6 record (.818) in the regular season from 2019-22 at Lambeau Field, the top home mark in the NFL since 2019. His .750 win percentage (18-6 record) against NFC North opponents in his first four seasons also ranks as the best in the history of the NFC North/Central (min. 10 games).
  • In his first season leading the Packers in 2019, became the first coach in club history to lead the team to the playoffs in his debut season. Also led the largest one-year win improvement in team history (plus-seven wins).

Pete Carroll…In his 14th season as the Seahawks' eighth head coach.

  • Is in his 30th season as an NFL coach, having previously spent time with the Buffalo Bills (1984), Minnesota Vikings (1985-89), New York Jets (1990-94; head coach in 1994), San Francisco 49ers (1995-96) and New England Patriots (head coach, 1997-99).
  • Seattle has reached the playoffs in 10 of his 13 seasons as head coach with seven divisional-round appearances, two NFC championships and back-to-back Super Bowl appearances (2013-14). Won Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, over Denver in the 2013 season.
  • Seattle led the NFL in scoring defense for four consecutive seasons (2012-15), becoming the first defense in the Super Bowl era to accomplish the feat.


  • Green Bay and Seattle have met a total of 24 times (including postseason) since their inaugural meeting in 1976. The Packers hold a 15-9 all-time series record (including postseason) over the Seahawks.
  • For a span of eight head-to-head matchups from 1996-2008, Mike Holmgren was the head coach of one of the teams.
  • The home team has won the last 10 matchups (including postseason). The last visiting team to win was Green Bay in 2008 when the Packers defeated the Seahawks, 27-17, in Seattle.
