- Green Bay has had at least one 100-yard receiver in eight of 11 games this season and ranks No. 1 in the NFL with 10 100-yard receivers on the season. The Packers need one more 100-yard receiver to tie the single-season team record set in 1995 (11).

- WR Jordy Nelson needs 53 receiving yards to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the season. He posted a career-high nine catches (later tied) for a career-best 162 yards and a career-high three TDs (later tied) vs. Detroit in the 2011 season finale.

- Nelson ranks No. 1 in the NFL with 14 catches of 25-plus yards this season. That is two shy of the top mark by a Packer since 1994 (Nelson, 16 in 2011; Greg Jennings 16 in 2010).

- WR Jarrett Boykin has 470 receiving yards since Week 7, which ranks No. 10 in the NFL over that span.
