On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. 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 SET TO TAKE ON DIVISION-RIVAL VIKINGS IN PRIME-TIME MATCHUP
- The Packers (4-2) will face the Vikings (1-5) tonight in a nationally televised contest on NBC, Green Bay’s first prime-time game this season.

- With the Packers’ 31-13 win over the Browns and losses by the Bears and Lions last Sunday, Green Bay moved into sole possession of first place in the NFC North with its 4-2 mark on the season. The Packers have won three straight games after getting off to a 1-2 start.

- Tonight kicks off a stretch of three prime-time games for the Packers in the next four weeks, with the Week 11 contest at the N.Y. Giants subject to flexible scheduling. This is the first of three scheduled Sunday night games for Green Bay (at N.Y. Giants in Week 11, vs. Atlanta in Week 14, both subject to flex scheduling).

- The Packers are 20-6 all-time in Sunday night contests, a .769 winning percentage that ranks No. 1 in NFL history (see page 2 for more). Green Bay has won seven of its last nine Sunday night games.

- This will be Green Bay’s fifth Sunday night meeting against the Vikings (1990, 2002, 2003, 2010) and the first in Minnesota since ’03.

- For the Packers, this is the first of back-to-back contests against NFC North foes, with a Monday Night Football matchup vs. Chicago at Lambeau Field in Week 9. Four of Green Bay’s next six games are against NFC North teams.

- Green Bay enters tonight’s game having won 13 of its last 14 regular-season games against NFC North foes. The Packers’ .929 winning percentage in the division over that span ranks No. 1 in the NFL.

- The Packers have won five of their last six NFC North games away from Lambeau Field. Green Bay has a 14-7 mark (.667) in road divisional games under McCarthy, which ranks No. 4 in the NFL over that span.

 

AN EVENLY MATCHED SERIES
- Fans can bet on a back-and-forth contest when the Packers and Vikings meet. In fact, 16 of the last 21 regular-season meetings have been decided by seven points or less.

- Since Head Coach Mike McCarthy took over in 2006, the Packers have swept the season series four out of seven years (2006-2007, 2010-2011). Green Bay has a 10-4 record (.714) against the Vikings in the regular season under McCarthy.

- Through 105 meetings, which includes two postseason games, the Packers hold a 55-49-1 advantage over the Vikings in the all-time series.

- Including Green Bay’s win over Minnesota last season in an NFC Wild Card game, the Packers have won six of the last seven games between the teams. Green Bay has won two of the last three meetings in Minnesota.

- The Packers have scored 30-plus points in four of their last five games against Minnesota, averaging 33.2 points per game over that span.

- Over the last 19 seasons (1994-2012), the Packers (nine) and the Vikings (five) have accounted for 14 NFC Central/North championships.

 

WEARING THE STRIPES
- Tonight’s officiating crew includes referee Scott Green (19), umpire Bruce Stritesky (102), head linesman Tom Stabile (24), line judge Mike Spanier (90), field judge Boris Cheek (41), side judge Larry Rose (128) and back judge Scott Helverson (93).
