By Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers return to Lambeau Field this week to take on the Minnesota Vikings in the final home game of the regular season.
Green Bay has won four consecutive games, becoming the only team in the NFL to have a winning streak of four-plus games in each of the last eight seasons (2009-16). The Packers have registered a winning streak of four-plus games in 10 of 11 seasons under Head Coach Mike McCarthy.
The Packers will be playing on a Saturday during the regular season for the first time since 1997. Green Bay is 16-12 in regular-season Saturday games since 1925, and has won its last four. It will be the third time the Packers and Vikings have played on a Saturday during the regular season (1973, 1991).
The Packers are playing on Christmas Eve for the first time since 2004, when they won, 34-31, at Minnesota to clinch the NFC North title.
Of the past 29 regular-season meetings between the Packers and Vikings, 20 of those games have been decided by seven points or less, including a three-point differential in the first meeting this season.
Through 112 meetings, which includes two postseason contests (1-1), the Packers hold a 59-51-2 edge over the Vikings in the all-time series.
The Packers are 10-3-1 in the last 14 games between the teams during the regular and postseason.
