* Notes written by Packers public relations

WHAT TO WATCH FOR …
- Since 2006, the Packers are 18-8 (.720) in dome games (including playoffs). That ranks No. 2 in the NFL among teams with 10 or more road/neutral indoor games over that span behind only the N.Y. Jets (8-2, .800).

- The Packers have posted at least 350 yards of offense in all six games this season and each of the last nine dating back to last season. That is the second-longest current streak in the NFL behind only Denver (11).

- Green Bay has had an 80-yard rusher in each of the last five games.

- The Packers have had at least one 100-yard receiver in five of six games this season and rank No. 1 in the NFL with seven 100-yard receivers on the season.

- Green Bay has turned the ball over twice in its last three games.

- The Packers have allowed 39 points over their last three games, a 13.0-point average that ranks No. 2 in the NFL since Week 5.

- Green Bay’s average of 289.8 yards per game allowed since Week 3 ranks No. 3 in the NFL over that span.

- Green Bay has registered 17 sacks over its last four games, the most over a four-game span since it posted 17 in Weeks 6-9 in 2006. The Packers have recorded at least three sacks in four consecutive games.

- The Packers have held their opponent to fewer than 85 rushing yards in each of the last four games. Over its last four games, Green Bay has allowed 276 rushing yards on 88 carries (3.1 avg.), an average of 69.0 yards per game that ranks No. 1 in the league since Week 3.

- McCarthy enters tonight’s game tied for No. 3 in franchise history with Mike Holmgren for the most career wins (including playoffs) with 84.

- QB Aaron Rodgers has a 116.4 career passer rating in the regular season against the Vikings, connecting on 232 of 328 passes (70.7 percent) for 2,840 yards and 24 TDs with four INTs.

- According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Rodgers’ 116.4 rating against Minnesota ranks No. 1 in NFL history (since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger) vs. a single opponent (min. 250 attempts), ahead of Chargers QB Dan Fouts’ 112.6 rating vs. the Cleveland Browns and Rodgers’ 111.0 rating against the Detroit Lions. Rodgers has posted a passer rating of at least 130.0 in four of his last five starts against Minnesota.

- In his last six Sunday night starts, Rodgers has connected on 126 of 188 passes (67.0 percent) for 1,698 yards (283.0 per game) and 17 TDs with just one INT for a 123.5 passer rating. That includes a six-TD passing game, which tied the single-game franchise record, at Houston last season in Week 6.

- In his last 12 regular-season starts against NFC North opponents, Rodgers has completed 271 of 384 passes (70.6 percent) for 3,316 yards and 29 touchdowns with four INTs for a 117.7 passer rating.

- RB Eddie Lacy has rushed for 301 yards in the last three games, No. 1 in the NFL over that span.

- WR Jordy Nelson has posted a 18.0-yard receiving average over his last nine regular-season games, catching 41 passes for 739 yards and seven TDs. He has caught at least one TD pass in five of his last seven games.

- K Mason Crosby needs two points to move past WR Don Hutson (823) for No. 2 on the team’s all-time scoring list.

- P Tim Masthay needs to place one punt inside the 20 to move into sole possession of the No. 2 spot in team history (since 1976). With 85 career punts inside the 20, he is currently tied for No. 2 with Josh Bidwell.

    Let’s just rack up a W tonight, forget the stats, they can be deceiving, right Vic?

    I want long possession time, with scores at the end of the drives, 7 instead of 3…….please. I also want the O and D – lines to play tough and let us run the ball, and don’t let AD run it. Sounds easy enough, yeah? Go Pack!
