Packers Playing Their Best Ball Against Division


The Packers stay home to host the Detroit Lions on Sunday evening in a nationally televised contest, the first prime-time meeting between the division rivals since a Sunday night game at Lambeau Field in 2005. Green Bay has won six of its last seven games entering Sunday’s contest, which is tied for the second-best record in the league since Week 6 behind only Denver (7-0).

Green Bay has played extremely well against the Bears, Vikings and Lions the last two plus seasons. The Packers have won eight straight NFC North games at home, the longest streak by the team since a 10-game streak from 2000-02. With their 23-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday at Lambeau Field, the Packers extended their franchise-record divisional winning streak to 10 games (previous mark was eight games). It is the longest current divisional winning streak in the NFL, one ahead of New England’s nine-game winning streak against AFC East foes.

This is the second in a stretch of three straight NFC North games for Green Bay, the first time the Packers have had three consecutive divisional contests on the schedule since 2006 (Weeks 15-17). Three of Green Bay’s final four remaining games are against divisional opponents.

The Packers have won six of their last eight games played on Sunday night. Green Bay is 19-6 all-time in Sunday night contests, a .760 winning percentage that ranks No. 1 in the NFL.
