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 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-Giants in Week 11 flexed out of prime time

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 1, 2013 – 3:01 pm

131101-giants-600

The Packers-Giants game in Week 11 on Sunday, Nov. 17, at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey has been flexed out of NBC’s prime-time Sunday Night Football slot and is moving to a 3:25 p.m. CT kickoff on FOX.

The prime-time game on NBC will be Chiefs-Broncos on that date instead. Also, the Chargers-Dolphins game that day is moving from a noon kickoff to 3:05 p.m. CT on CBS.

The Packers have one other prime-time game scheduled for this season, at home vs. Atlanta in Week 14 (Sunday, Dec. 8).

Week 11 is when flex scheduling begins each year, with the Sunday night game subject to change through the end of the regular season.

This marks the first time since the NFL implemented flex scheduling in 2006 that the Packers have been flexed out of the prime-time game. The Packers have been flexed from an afternoon game into the prime-time slot before.

Packers-Giants post-game notes & quotes

Posted by Duke Bobber on January 15, 2012 – 10:14 pm

GIANTS TOP PACKERS, 37-20, IN NFC DIVISIONAL PLAYOFF

  • The N.Y. Giants beat the Packers, 37-20, on Sunday at Lambeau Field to advance to the NFC Championship.
  • Green Bay’s 15 wins overall on the season rank tied for No. 2 in franchise history (1997) behind only the team’s 16 victories overall in 1996.


OTHER POST-GAME NOTES:

  • Today’s paid attendance was 72,080. It was the 302nd consecutive sellout (285 regular season, 17 playoffs) at Lambeau Field.
  • WR Donald Driver caught three passes today, giving him a franchise-record 49 receptions for his career in the post- season. That surpassed WR Antonio Freeman’s mark of 47 career catches in the playoffs.
  • With 45 receiving yards, Driver moved past WR Robert Brooks (651 yards) for the No. 2 spot in franchise postseason history. Driver now has 675 career receiving yards in the playoffs.
  • Driver has now caught a pass in 12 consecutive postseason games, which is tied with Freeman for No. 2 in franchise playoff annals behind only RB Dorsey Levens (13 games).
  • QB Aaron Rodgers set a single-game franchise postseason record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback with 66 yards on seven carries (9.4 avg.). That topped the previous mark held by Rodgers (39 yards, at Chicago, Jan. 23, 2011). Rodgers’ 66-yard day was the most by an NFL quarterback in a playoff game since Atlanta’s Michael Vick posted 119 yards rushing vs. St. Louis on Jan. 15, 2005.
  • With 264 passing yards on the day, Rodgers surpassed QB Bart Starr (1,753 yards) for the No. 2 spot in the franchise postseason record book. Rodgers now has 1,781 career passing yards in the playoffs.
  • With two TD passes today, Rodgers moved into a tie with Starr for the No. 2 spot in team history for the most TD passes in the postseason with 15 in his career.
  • LB Brad Jones became the first Packer to block a field goal in a playoff game since DL Cletidus Hunt did so vs. San Francisco on Jan. 13, 2002.
  • S Morgan Burnett posted his first career postseason interception with his second-quarter INT of QB Eli Manning.

Packers to face Giants in NFC divisional round

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 8, 2012 – 2:58 pm

With their victory over the Atlanta Falcons, the New York Giants earned a trip to Lambeau Field for the NFC divisional playoffs against the Packers at 3:30 p.m. CT next Sunday.

Seeded fourth in the NFC, the Giants (10-7) beat the Falcons 24-2 in a wild-card game on Sunday. The Packers (15-1) are seeded first in the NFC and had a first-round bye.

No. 2 seed San Francisco (13-3) will host No. 3 seed New Orleans (14-3) in the other NFC divisional game, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT Saturday. The winners of the two divisional games will meet in the NFC Championship on Sunday, Jan. 22, at the site of the highest remaining seed. The Packers, as the No. 1 seed, would host the conference title game should they get there.

Next Sunday’s Packers-Giants game will be the second meeting between the teams this season. Back on Dec. 4, the Packers won, 38-35, on a last-second field goal at MetLife Stadium.

The Packers and Giants last met in the playoffs following the 2007 season in the NFC title game. The Giants won that game, 23-20 in overtime at Lambeau Field, to advance to the Super Bowl.

The upcoming game will mark the seventh postseason meeting all-time between the Packers and Giants. The Packers are 4-2 in the previous six meetings, beating the Giants for the NFL Championship in 1939, ’44, ’61 and ’62. The Giants beat the Packers for the NFL title in 1938 and in the NFC Championship four years ago.
