The Packers had their bye this past weekend, the second time in three seasons (2010) that the open date for Green Bay arrived in Week 10. Sunday marks the third straight season that the Packers have come out of their bye with a contest away from Lambeau Field. Last season, Green Bay traveled to San Diego and in 2010, the Packers visited Minnesota following their open week.
In games immediately following its bye week, Green Bay has won 12 of its last 16 (.750). Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 5-1 (.833). Green Bay won its first game after the bye each of the last three seasons, outscoring its opponents 102-41 in those games. That included a 26-0 win vs. Detroit in 2009 and a 31-3 victory at Minnesota in 2010.
Since McCarthy took over in 2006, Green Bay has a 38-20 overall record (.655) after the bye. Since 2009, the Packers are 21-7 (.750) after the bye.
