Looking back, looking ahead

Posted by Ricky Zeller on December 29, 2011 – 5:22 pm

Some numbers worth noting as the Packers prepare for the Lions:

18.6 – Average points Green Bay has allowed this season at home. The Packers have scored an average of 39.4 points per game at Lambeau Field in 2011, which ranks No. 2 in the NFL. The club’s record for scoring average at home is 38.0, set in 1942.

6 – The Packers can become only the sixth team in NFL history to finish a season 15-1.

17 – Passing attempts by Aaron Rodgers the last time the Lions visited Lambeau Field, Oct. 3, 2010. It was the fewest attempts by the QB in a game he finished since he took over as a starter in ’08. The Packers prevailed, 28-26, with Rodgers’ 16-yard scramble helping the club run out the final 6:32 of the contest.

In the ’10 victory over Detroit, he recorded a passer rating of 105.3. Rodgers completed 12 passes vs. the Lions, tied for the fewest in his career (vs. Seattle, 12/27/09). The only game where Rodgers has thrown or completed fewer passes was last year at Detroit (7 of 11, 46 yards), when he departed in the first half with an injury.

2002 – The last year Green Bay went undefeated at home. The Packers enter the finale with a 7-0 record at Lambeau Field. Green Bay is one of three teams unbeaten at home this season, joining the Ravens and Saints.

3 – Charles Woodson has returned an interception for a touchdown vs. the Lions each of the last three years. Woodson picked off a pass in the Thanksgiving game at Detroit, no touchdown. The cornerback’s feat of three-straight seasons is an NFL record.

1,089 – Rushing yards combined between running backs James Starks (578) and Ryan Grant (511).

5 – Both the Packers and Lions have lost only five fumbles in 2011.

385 – Completions by Matthew Stafford this season. Rodgers has completed 343 passes.  The Detroit QB has 604 attempts, Rodgers has 502. Stafford has set team records with 4,518 yards and 36 TDs.
