The Packers have played in the NFL’s championship game 13 times. Green Bay played in 10 title games from 1936-67 and three Super Bowls after 1970 when the name of the game was changed. Green Bay’s last Super Bowl appearance was Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011 when the Packers took on the Steelers.
Green Bay was victorious and considered the champions of the 2010 season. While the majority of the team looks different, the Packers have a few remnants from the championship team. Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson were a big part of the 31-25 victory over the Steelers.
Rodgers was 24-of-39 for 304 yards and three touchdowns. Nelson had nine receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown. Similar to 2016, the Packers faced the Falcons in the playoffs but squared off earlier in the divisional round.
Green Bay went 10-6 during their last Super Bowl season. Another similarity to the 2016 season, the Packers were without a first round bye and started the playoffs in the Wild Card round. They did not play a home playoff game and rattled off three straight road victories to get to the Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas.
The Packers list 13 championship seasons although many of these came prior to the Super Bowl era. Three championships from 1929-1931 were awarded based on league standings. Green Bay has been to the following Super Bowls: I, II, XXXI, XXXII and XLV. The Packers won four of these five Super Bowls.
The current Packers team has rattled off eight straight wins and need one more over the Falcons to make the Super Bowl. Packers fans hope they can continue winning on the road just as they did during their 2011 Super Bowl run.
