NFC North Games Start A Bit Later Than Normal For Green Bay This Season



This will be the first time since 2000 that the Green Bay Packers’ first game in the division didn’t arrive until Week 5 or later (Week 5 vs. Chicago in 2000). While it may be a late start to the division schedule, the rivalry games will appear with much more regularity moving forward.

Three of the Packers’ next five games will come against NFC North foes, with a Week 8 visit to Minnesota and a Week 9 home tilt against Chicago.

When the Packers take the field against the Lions this Sunday, they will be looking to extend their home divisional winning streak to 10 games.

Since the league went to a divisional format in 1967, Green Bay has had only two winning streaks of 10-plus games against divisional foes at home (18 straight from 1994-98 and 10 straight from 2000-02).

Since ’06, Green Bay has a 32-10 overall record (.762) in NFC North games (No. 2 in the NFL) and an 18-3 mark (.857) at home (No. 2 in the NFL).

The Packers have won eight straight regular-season games at home and 21 of their last 22 (.955). Green Bay’s current home winning streak

ranks No. 3 in the NFL behind Seattle (10 games) and Denver (nine).
