Playoffs NFL 2021 Rams vs Packers Packers are 70-1-1 when leading at home after two quarters
DIt is of what Aaron Rodgers finally took the Packers’ ownership after Brett Favre’s umpteenth retirement threat in 2008, Green Bay is one of the toughest customs in the entire NFL. Only New England has a better home record since then (99-21) have a better record than the ‘cheese heads’ (82-26-2) in regular season and playoff games in the last 13 seasons and have a key ingredient its formula.
The delivery differential is the statistic most correlated with winning or losing in the NFL (only 13.7%, 35 out of 255, won this year delivering more balls than the rival in 2020, according to Stathead), but the second is the advantage at rest (49 of 244, 20.3%) and that more than the Packers have understood from Rodgers.
Green Bay has been leading at halftime in 72 games with Rodgers at quarterback. Only one team traced them and yet another ended in a draw, while 18 of their 19 home losses came without it.
One of the most curious facts in the league is that the quarterback who made the comeback against Rodgers is not one you would think of quickly. He is still in the league, but with 40 options you would hardly hit him … Josh Rosen.
The fourth QB chosen in the 2018 Draft did not play this season, spending time in Tampa Bay and San Francisco. In his rookie year, in Arizona, he won 3 of 14 starts and one was at Lambeau, 20-17, despite trailing 10-7 at halftime. achieving what no one else has done. Kirk Cousins, on his first trip to Green Bay as Minnesota QB, tied 29-29, scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter and would have won it had it not been for Daniel Carlson missing two field goals in extra time. And that was in September, with sunny and warm weather, nothing like Wisconsin in winter.
The Packers, when they don’t go upstairs at halftime, suffer like all teams. In the Rodgres Era (2008 to date), They are 27-55-1 when they have no advantage after two quarters. In Lambeau, 12-19-1, although it must be recognized that several games were not started by Rodgers due to injury.
In 2020, The Packers were the best in the NFC at 13-3 and only twice came to halftime at a disadvantage this year., against Saints (17-13) and against Bucs (28-10), losing only in Tampa. Their other defeat was when they did not reach the break with an advantage at home, 14-14 against the Vikings, who ended up winning 28-22.
Another factor that helps the Packers is that aim to be cold on saturday against the Rams, a climate they are much more familiar with than Los Angeles. Green Bay is 13-5 at home in the Playoffs since 1970, winning his last three, while Rodgers is 4-2 at Lambeau in the postseason, also winning the last three, and has never lost when he reaches the break.
