By Green Bay Packers
Lincoln Financial Field will be rocking in Philadelphia when the Packers and Eagles kickoff at 7:30 PM. The Packers won the last matchup against the Eagles, 53-20, at Lambeau Field in 2014. Green Bay won each of its last two games at Philadelphia as well, 21-16 in the 2010 Wild Card playoffs and 27-20 during the 2010 regular season.
The Packers lead the regular-season series against the Eagles, 25-14. Including the postseason, Green Bay has won four of the last five matchups against Philadelphia.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson played quarterback from the Packers from 1996-98 and 2001-04. Monday will be the third time in the last four seasons Green Bay and Philadelphia have played each other.
The Packers have posted 400-plus total yards of offense in three straight games, just the second time in the last seven seasons that Green Bay has done that (Weeks 8, 10-11 in 2014). The Packers have scored 23 or more points in seven of the last eight games. Dating back to Week 3, they are tied for the second-most 23-plus point games in the NFL, trailing only the Dallas Cowboys, who have eight (according to pro-football-reference.com).
Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, Green Bay is 83-43-1 during the regular season against NFC opponents. The Packers’ 83 wins and .657 winning percentage both rank No. 1 among NFC teams over that span.
Green Bay is 35-28 on the road against NFC teams since 2006, a .556 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in the NFC, trailing only the Dallas Cowboys (37-26, .587). The Packers are playing three road games in a row for the first time since 2012 and only the third time in the last 19 seasons (also 1998).
Green Bay will return to Lambeau Field next Sunday to play its first home game in nearly a month when they host the Houston Texans in their last scheduled matchup against an AFC opponent. The Packers will finish the regular season with four games against NFC foes, including the last three against division opponents.Save
