This Sunday, the Broncos will travel to Green Bay for just the sixth time in franchise history. It will be the club’s fourth appearance at Lambeau Field – the team played two road games against Green Bay at Milwaukee County Stadium (1971, ’87) before their first trip to Lambeau in 1993. Only four teams (Cleveland, New England, Houston and Jacksonville) have played fewer games at Lambeau Field.
The two teams have met 11 times in the regular season, with each club winning five times and tying once. Broncos fans will have no problem remembering the lone postseason matchup between Denver and Green Bay, in which the Broncos earned a 31-24 victory in Super Bowl XXXII.
The last time the two teams tangled was on Oct. 29, 2007 when the Packers beat the Broncos 19-13 in overtime.
Denver got off to a strong start in the series, winning or tying five of the first six games. The road team has only won once in the series – The Broncos are 5-1-0 against the Packers at home, while Green Bay has compiled a 4-0-1 home record.
