Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Packers’ win streak ends in 38-10 loss to Giants

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 25, 2012 – 10:31 pm

Green Bay Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush makes a tackle

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.–The Packers’ five-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt at MetLife Stadium on Sunday night, in a 38-10 loss to the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants.

Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes and the Giants’ vaunted front four sacked Aaron Rodgers five times and forced a fumble the Giants converted into a touchdown that turned the game decidedly in the Giants’ favor just before halftime.

Rodgers was out-pointed by the opposing quarterback for one of the few times in the last three years. Rodgers completed 14 of 25 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and one interception. His night ended when he was replaced by Graham Harrell for the final five minutes of the game.

The loss leaves the Packers, 7-4, a game behind the Chicago Bears in the NFC North title race. The Bears had beaten the Vikings earlier in the day.

Very little worked for the Packers. The Giants were even able to hold the red-hot Rodgers to Randall Cobb pass combination to 39 yards.

Meanwhile, the Giants rushed for nearly 150 yards and dominated the line of scrimmage.

The Packers were playing without stars Clay Matthews and Greg Jennings. It’s hoped both will be able to return for next Sunday’s game against the visiting Vikings.

Giants hold 31-10 lead at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on November 25, 2012 – 9:01 pm

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers under pressure

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.–The Packers trail the Giants at halftime of tonight’s game at MetLife Stadium, 31-10.

Each team scored quickly, the Giants first on a 74-yard touchdown drive, the big play of which was a 59-yard screen pass to running back Ahmad Bradshaw. The Packers countered immediately with a 61-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson.

The Giants then seized control of the game, mixing run and pass expertly. Eli Manning pitched a 16-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle, capping a 55-yard drive, and then Manning capped a 61-yard drive with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz in the second quarter that staked the Giants to a commanding 24-7 lead.

Needing to score points and buy time for its defense to rest and regroup, the Packers offense went on a six-minute drive that culminated in a 28-yard field goal by Mason Crosby, who had missed from 55 yards earlier, his eighth miss in his last 14 field goal attempts.

Rodgers was under a heavy rush and was sacked three times, the third sack resulting in a fumble the Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul recovered in scoring territory with 1:03 to play in the half. Rodgers was intercepted by Corey Webster earlier in the half.

Following Pierre-Paul’s recovery, the Giants quickly moved into the red zone with a pass from Manning to Randle, who broke tackles and carried to the 13-yard line. On the next play, Bradshaw roared up the middle and scored standing up.
