Packers & Lions Rivalry Has Great History


No other NFL teams have played every year since 1932, when the Packers and the Lions, then known as the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans, began their yearly home-and-home series. The rivalry actually kicked off in 1930 at City Stadium in Green Bay, a 47-13 Packers win. Some two seasons later, the clubs began a yearly series. This Sunday marks meeting No. 166 in the all-time series.

Now rivals in the NFC North, the Packers own a 91-65-7 (.583) advantage over the Lions in the regular season and have won both playoff games. Green Bay has an 11-1 mark (.917) against the Lions under Head Coach Mike McCarthy. Overall, the Packers have won 20 of the last 23 (.870) in the series.

The Packers have a 5-1 record at Ford Field under McCarthy and have outscored the Lions, 180-109, in those games at Detroit. Green Bay is 7-3 all-time at Ford Field.

Including playoffs, Green Bay is 12-3 (.800) away from Lambeau Field over its last 15 games. The Packers have won nine of their last 12 (.750) regular-season road contests. The Packers have won 23 of their last 27 regular-season games overall (.852), the best record in the league over that span.
