  • 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.

What to watch for: Lacy leads NFL in rushing over last 11 games

Posted by packers.com on December 29, 2013 – 1:25 pm

- Green Bay’s 5,931 yards this season (No. 4 in the NFL) are the third most by the team through 15 games in franchise history, trailing only the 5,970 yards posted in 2004 and the 5,932 yards in 2011. The Packers enter today’s game 551 yards shy of the single-season franchise record for yardage (6,482 in 2011) and 426 yards shy of the No. 2 mark (6,357 in 2004) in team history.

- The Packers enter today’s game ranked No. 7 in the league in rushing yards per game (131.7) and No. 8 in passing yards per game (263.7). They will be looking to finish in the top 10 in both categories for the first time since 2004 (No. 10 rushing/No. 3 passing).

- Green Bay has had at least one 100-yard receiver in eight of 15 games this season and is tied for No. 3 in the NFL with 10 100-yard receivers on the season. The Packers need one more 100-yard receiver to tie the single-season franchise record set in 1995 (11).

- The Packers have converted 9 of 11 red-zone opportunities in the last two games, an 81.8 conversion percentage that ranks No. 3 in the NFL over that span.

- The Packers have scored 63 second-half points in their last three games, No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only Philadelphia (85).

- Green Bay has posted 10 takeaways in its last four games, which is tied for No. 4 in the NFL over that span. The Packers have recorded two-plus takeaways in four consecutive games.

- Green Bay’s defense has recorded 15 sacks over the last five games, which is tied for No. 4 in the NFL over that span.

- In his last five regular-season games against Chicago, QB Aaron Rodgers has completed 95 of 137 passes (69.3 percent) for 1,117 yards and 12 TDs with two INTs for a 117.0 passer rating.

- Rodgers has a career rating of 110.7 against NFC North foes, which ranks No. 1 in NFL history by a quarterback against divisional opponents. He has completed 680 of 975 passes (69.7 percent) for 8,197 yards and 64 TDs with 15 INTs in his career against the NFC North.

- RB Eddie Lacy has rushed for 1,061 yards over the last 11 games, which ranks No. 1 in the league over that span. Lacy is tied with John Brockington (four in 1971) for the most 100-yard rushing games by a Green Bay rookie.

- Lacy has rushed for nine TDs since Week 7, which ranks No. 1 in the league over that span.

- WR Jordy Nelson needs 47 receiving yards for his second career 1,200-yard receiving season (1,263 in 2011). He would join Sterling Sharpe, Antonio Freeman, James Lofton, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver as the only players in team history to post two or more 1,200-yard receiving seasons.

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

- WR James Jones needs 9 receiving yards to top his career high of 784 yards set in 2012.

- DE/LB Mike Neal has posted a sack in four of the last six games. He has registered a career-high 5.0 sacks on the season.

- K Mason Crosby has made at least one field goal in 14 consecutive games, which is tied for the second-longest streak (Ryan Longwell, 14 in 1997-98) in franchise history behind only Longwell’s streak of 15 games in 2004-05.

- Crosby has made a career-high five FGs this season from 50-plus yards, the second most in a season in franchise history behind only Chris Jacke’s six 50-yarders in 1993.

- Crosby needs six points to hit the 900-point mark for his career. If he does so today, in his 112th career game, he would be the third fastest to 900 career points in NFL history behind only Gino Cappelletti (106) and Stephen Gostkowski (108).

- With 296 punt return yards on the season, CB Micah Hyde needs 11 more to set the franchise record for the most punt return yards by a rookie in a season (Veryl Switzer, 306 in 1954).
