The Green Bay Packers will come out of its bye week with a home game for only the second
time in eight seasons under Coach Mike McCarthy. In 2009, the Packers had their open date
in Week 5 and hosted Detroit at Lambeau Field in Week 6.
In games immediately following its bye week, Green Bay has won 13 of its last 17 (.765). Under McCarthy, the Packers are 6-1 (.857) in the game following the bye, which is tied for No. 1 in the NFL over that span.
Green Bay has won its first game after the bye each of the last four seasons, outscoring its opponents 126-61 in those contests. That included a 26-0 win vs. Detroit in 2009 and a 31-3 victory at Minnesota in 2010.
