PACKERS CLOSE OUT ROAD SWING IN ST. LOUIS
- Green Bay closes out its three-game road trip with a visit to St. Louis this Sunday to take on the Rams, the third meeting between the clubs in the last four seasons.
- This is the second straight season that the teams have squared off in October. In 2011, St. Louis visited Lambeau Field in Week 6, a game the Packers won, 24-3.
- The Packers have won three straight in the series and six of the last nine. Green Bay trails in the overall series, 44-46-1, which includes two playoff meetings (1-1). The Packers beat the Rams, 28-7, in the 1967 Western Conference Championship in Milwaukee.
- The franchises met every year but one from 1937-71, with the lone exception coming in 1943 when the Rams didn’t field a team.
- Green Bay improved its record to 3-3 with a 42-24 victory at Houston as the Packers handed the Texans their first loss of the season. It marked the first time since 1997 that Green Bay had beaten an undefeated team with five or more wins (5-0 Tampa Bay, Oct, 5, 1997).
- This is the first time since 1998 (Weeks 10-12) that the Packers have played three consecutive road contests. Green Bay and Houston (Weeks 12-14) are the only teams in the league with three straight road games on the schedule in 2012.
- The Rams are 3-0 at home this season. Including playoffs, Green Bay is 11-3 (.786) away from Lambeau Field over its last 14 games. The Packers have won eight of their last 11 regular-season road contests (see page 16 for more).
- The Packers have won 20 of their last 24 regular-season games overall (.833), the best record in the league over that span.
- Following Sunday’s contest at St. Louis, Green Bay returns home for the first time in nearly a month to host the Jacksonville Jaguars at noon on Sunday, Oct. 28.
- It will be the first of two straight home games for the Packers, their only contests at Lambeau Field over an eight-week period (Weeks 5-12). Green Bay closes its season with three of five games at home.
THE PACKERS-RAMS SERIES
- These clubs first met in 1937, when the NFL launched its long relationship with the city of Cleveland. The franchises met every year from 1937-71 except 1943, when the Rams didn’t field a team.
- Beginning in 1946, when the Rams moved from Cleveland to Los Angeles, these foes consistently played their Wisconsin games early in the year (before cold weather set in) and their warm West Coast games late in the year.
- The clubs have met twice in the postseason, with the Packers topping the Rams, 28-7, in the 1967 Western Conference Championship in Milwaukee. The Rams beat the Packers, 45-17, in St. Louis in a 2001 Divisional Playoff contest.
- The Packers have won three straight in the series and six of the last nine.
