Packers Rack Up Points and Wins

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Oakland Raiders 46-16 this past weekend to continue their trek towards an undefeated regular season. With their Week 14 win the Packers are just the second team in NFL history to follow up a Super Bowl championship with a 13-0 regular season record (Denver Broncos, 1998). The Packers have now won 19 consecutive games, including the playoffs, which is the second-longest winning streak in NFL history and are just two wins behind the 2003-04 New England Patriots (21 games).

The victory over the Raiders at Lambeau Field also clinched a first-round postseason bye for the Packers and their 46 points scored gave them a franchise record 466 points for the season. That total surpassed the team record set in 2009 when the Packers tallied 461 points.
