20 Interesting Statistics to Consider for the Eagles-Packers Wild-Card Game

20 Interesting Statistics to Consider for the Eagles-Packers Wild-Card Game

Hyped by on January 8, 2011 Website:

1. The 2010 Green Bay Packers have not trailed by more than seven points in any game this entire season. I can't tell you if that is a record, and I don't have the time to check every team in history, but I know that the 16-0 2007 Patriots trailed 35-23 in their last game. The perfect Miami Dolphins trailed 17-7 in a game against the Jets. The The 1984 49ers went 15-1 but trailed 10-0 in their only loss. The 2004 Steelers went 15-1 but lost 30-13 to the Ravens. The 2004 Vikings went 15-1 but trailed by eight in the Tampa Bay game. If anybody wants to go through every team and let me know, I will gladly publish your findings. But based off my little bit of research, I will guess that the Packers are the first team in history to not trail by more than a touchdown during the season.

2. Michael Vick handed the Packers their first ever home playoff loss in the wild-card round of the 2002 playoffs. Vick completed 13 of 25 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown, and rushed 10 times for 64 yards. The Falcons won 27-7.
