What to watch for in Sunday’s Wild Card game

Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 1:40 pm

- Green Bay has an all-time postseason record of 14-4 (.778) at Lambeau Field.

- The Packers have averaged 30.3 points per game in 10 playoff contests under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, which ranks No. 4 in the NFL over that span. That includes the three highest point totals in franchise postseason history (48 at Atlanta, Jan. 15, 2011; 45 at Arizona, Jan. 10, 2010; 42 vs. Seattle. Jan. 12, 2008).

- The Packers have scored 83 second-half points in their last four games, No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only Philadelphia (92).

- Green Bay has rushed for 110-plus yards in each of its last four games, averaging 143.3 yards on the ground over that span.

- The Packers have posted 12 takeaways in its last five games, which is tied for No. 3 in the NFL over that span.

- Green Bay has recorded two or more takeaways in each of its last five games, its longest single-season streak since a nine-game stretch in 2002.

- QB Aaron Rodgers ranks No. 3 in NFL postseason history (min. 150 attempts) with a 103.6 passer rating, No. 5 with a 66.1 completion percentage and No. 3 with a 1.71 interception percentage (292/5).

- In five career starts vs. San Francisco (including playoffs), Rodgers has completed 130 of 195 passes (66.7 percent) for 1,535 yards and 12 TDs with three INTs for a 104.5 passer rating.

- Rodgers has three career 300-yard passing games in the playoffs, which is tied with Brett Favre for No. 1 in team history. Rodgers has posted a 110-plus passer rating in four of his eight career postseason starts.

- FB John Kuhn has scored a touchdown in each of the last four postseasons (2009-12), the only player in the NFL to accomplish that feat over that span. He is one of three players in franchise history to score a TD in four or more consecutive postseasons (RB Dorsey Levens, five, 1994-98; WR Antonio Freeman, four, 1995-98).

- K Mason Crosby needs five points to surpass K Chris Jacke (73) for No. 1 on the franchise’s all-time playoff scoring list. Crosby has scored in 10 straight playoff games (2007-12), which is tied for the longest scoring streak in team postseason history (Chris Jacke, Ryan Longwell).

- Crosby has made seven consecutive FGs in the playoffs dating back to the 2010 postseason, which is the longest streak in team history.

- CB Sam Shields has posted an interception in each of his last two playoff games. He is tied with four other players for No. 1 on the team’s career playoff list with four interceptions.
