From the Dope Sheet:

THE DOPE ON THIS WEEK’S OPPONENT:

  • Packers vs. St. Louis Rams
  • All-time regular season: 42-45-2
  • All-time, postseason: 1-1
  • All-time, at home: 27-19-0 (incl. Packers’ 1967 Conference Championship Streaks: The Packers have won the last two meetings.
  • Last meeting, regular season: Sept. 27, 2009, at Edward Jones Dome; Packers won, 36-17
  • For the first time since 1965 and only the seventh time in franchise history, the Packers are off to a 5-0 start.
  • Green Bay is one of just two teams in the NFL with an unblemished record, with fellow NFC North foe Detroit joining the Packers as the only undefeated teams in the league. The only other time that both the Packers and Lions each got off to 5-0 starts was in 1931.
  • It marks only the second time since realignment in 2002 that two teams in the same division have started out a season with five wins each. In 2004, the New England Patriots and N.Y. Jets of the AFC East each posted 5-0 starts.
  • The six previous 5-0 starts in team history all resulted in NFL titles (1929-31, 1944, 1962, 1965) for the Packers.
  • With their win Sunday night in Atlanta, the Packers are off to only their second 3-0 start on the road in the past 39 seasons. Both of them have come under the guidance of Head Coach Mike McCarthy, as Green Bay also got off to a 3-0 start away from Lambeau Field in 2007.

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 series has been relatively even lately, with the Packers winning five of the last nine contests. Previously, the Packers had won three meetings in a row (1992-95).

LAST MEETING, REGULAR SEASON

  • Sept. 27, 2009, at Edward Jones Dome; Packers won, 36-17
  • QB Aaron Rodgers connected on 13-of-23 passes for 269 yards and two TDs and added a rushing touchdown as well.
  • Rodgers hooked up with WR Greg Jennings on a pair of 50-yard passes (50, 53 yards) as Jennings posted a 103-yard receiving day on just two receptions, one of only two times in his career that he recorded 100 receiving yards in a game on two catches.
  • WR Donald Driver caught four passes for 95 yards and a TD and RB Ryan Grant led the way on the ground with 99 rushing yards on 26 carries (3.8 avg.).
  • Green Bay’s defense registered three takeaways on the afternoon, including an interception of QB Kyle Boller, who played the final three quarters for the Rams in place of injured QB Marc Bulger (shoulder).
  • Green Bay returns home to host the St. Louis Rams at Lambeau Field on Sunday, the first matchup between the teams in Green Bay since 2006 and the 90th regular-season meeting between the clubs.
  • This will be the Packers’ last appearance in front of their home crowd for nearly a month. In Week 7, Green Bay travels to Minnesota before enjoying its bye in Week 8.
  • The Packers stay on the road coming out of the bye with a contest at San Diego in Week 9.
  • Including playoffs, the Packers have won 11 straight games, which is tied for the second-longest winning streak (1928-29) in team history behind only a 12-game winning streak in 1961-62.
  • The Packers have won seven straight contests at Lambeau Field and 13 of their last 14 at home. The only loss over that span came to Miami last season in Week 6.
  • Green Bay’s 13-1 (.929) home mark since Week 10 of 2009 ranks No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only New England (13-0).
  • The Packers have a 28-8 (.771) record in their last 36 regular-season games at Lambeau Field, a record that ranks No. 3 in the NFL and No. 1 in the NFC over that period.
  • The Packers’ regular-season home winning streak of seven games is the longest home streak of Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s tenure. It is also the longest streak since Green Bay posted an 11-game winning streak at Lambeau from 2001-02.
  • Green Bay has a 27-19 mark (.587) in home contests against the Rams, which includes a 28-7 victory in the 1967 Western Conference Championship in Milwaukee.
  • The franchises met every year but one from 1937-71. The teams didn’t play in 1943, when the Rams didn’t field a team.
  • On Sunday, the Packers will be wearing a third jersey that is a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1929, the year of Green Bay’s first world title. Green Bay wore the uniforms last season in Week 13 vs. San Francisco, a 34-16 Packers win.
