Packers/Patriots Rivalry

Games Database Help

Perhaps the quickest way to see how this works is with a few examples.

🏈 To see the list of games that Vince Lombardi coached on a Thursday and won:

  1. Select "Vince Lombardi" from the Coach drop-down.
  2. Select "Thu" from the Date drop-down.
  3. Select "W" from the Result drop-down.

🏈 To see the list of games that the Packers won against any team from Los Angeles:

  1. Type "Los Angeles" in the Opponent heading.
  2. Select "W" from the Result drop-down.

🏈 To see the Packers/Bears rivalry:

  1. Type "Bears" in the Opponent heading.

Note that some teams, while they've changed their name, are still considered the same team. For example:

  • Bears and Staleys
  • Redskins and Football Team and Commanders

As you type the letters of any team name (i.e. "red" then "redsk", etc), you'll see the list start filtering automatically. But once you type the complete team name (i.e. "redskins"), then the combination of same team names will kick in.

Note how the Stats table automatically updates along with the list of games as you enter any criteria. Press the 'Reset' button to reset all criteria back to the list of every game since 1919.

Note also that it's difficult to present this much data on a small screen. While I will continue to look for ways to optimize it, this site may work better on a larger screen.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know. Seriously, I appreciate your feedback.


Thanksgiving Help

The rule for calculating Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. has changed over the years. For purposes of Packers history, these are the rules:
  • 1919-1939: last Thursday of November
  • 1939-1941: next to last Thursday of November (0 games)
  • 1942-present: 4th Thursday of November
Note also that the Packers have played three non-NFL games on Thanksgiving Day (1920, 1922, 1933). Therefore, other sources that exclude non-NFL games will have different data.
