    The three previous 9-0 starts in team history (1929, 1931, 1962) all resulted in NFL titles for the Packers.
    For the first time this season, the Packers will have back-to-back games in front of the home crowd at Lambeau Field.
    Green Bay’s 15-1 (.938) home mark since Week 10 of 2009 ranks No. 1 in the NFL over that span.
    The Packers have won nine straight contests at Lambeau Field and 15 of their last 16 at home. It is the longest regular-season home winning streak by Green Bay since an 11-game streak from 2001-02 and the longest current home winning streak in the NFL.
    Green Bay has averaged a league-high 40.0 points per game at home this season. The franchise record is 38.0 ppg in 1942.
    The Packers rank No. 1 in the NFL in scoring at 35.6 points per game...Their 320 points this season are the most in franchise history through nine games and the fourth most since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger by an NFL team through nine contests.
    QB Aaron Rodgers – Is the first QB in NFL history to post 2,800 passing yards/28 passing TDs in the first nine games of the season...Has registered a 110-plus passer rating in every game this season, a nine-game streak that is the longest single-season streak in NFL history...With the nine 110-rating games, is already tied for the No. 3 mark in NFL history for the most in a single season, trailing only 49ers QB Steve Young (11 in 1994) and Patriots QB Tom Brady (10 in 2007)...Has posted a 140-plus passer rating in three straight games, only the second quarterback in NFL history to accomplish that feat in a single season (Rams QB Kurt Warner, 1999)...Has completed at least 75 percent of his passes in three straight games, a franchise single-season record...With a 300-yard passing game today, would tie Brett Favre (1995, 2007) for the most 300-yard games by a Packer in a single season with seven...Needs 36 passing yards today to top the franchise mark for the most yards in the first 10 games of the season (Lynn Dickey, 2,904, 1983)...Already holds the team mark for most TD passes through 10 games with 28 through nine contests, besting the mark of 27 by Favre in 1996...Has thrown 87 consecutive passes without an interception.
    K Mason Crosby – Has made 23 straight field goals (2010-11) entering today’s contest, the longest regular-season streak in franchise history and the longest current streak in the NFL.
    WR Greg Jennings – Needs 23 receiving yards to become the eighth player in franchise history to hit the 6,000-yard mark for his career. If he reaches the 6,000-yard mark today in his 85th career game, would become the second fastest to 6,000 receiving yards in franchise history behind only WR Sterling Sharpe (84 games) and ahead of WR James Lofton (86 games).

    Also, the last SB Champ to start 9-0 was the Broncos. They repeated.
