Packers-Jaguars: The Winning Numbers

How did the Green Bay Packers beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday? Here’s our inside-the-numbers look.

0: Giveaways by the Packers. They are 44-7-1 under coach Mike McCarthy when they go turnover-free, a winning percentage of .856. The Packers tied the Chiefs for the most zero-turnover games in the league last season.

0: Percent touchdown rate for the Packers in goal-to-go situations, as they went 0-for-2. The Packers were 27th with a 60.0 percent rate last season.

0: Yards allowed by the Packers on sacks, the first time since last year’s opening win at Chicago.

1: Sack allowed by the Packers.

1: Touchdown catch by Davante Adams, a 29-yarder that’s the longest scoring grab of his career.

1: Touchdown catch last season by Adams.

1: Green Bay’s turnover differential. Under McCarthy, the Packers are 75-10-1 when winning the turnover battle, a winning percentage of .878.

1.52: Yards per carry allowed by the Packers after the first drive.

1.85: Yards per carry allowed by the Packers.

3: Times in the previous six seasons in which the Packers held an opponent to less than 2.0 yards per carry.

4: Drives without a first down by Green Bay’s offense (not including the take-a-knee to end the game).

4.54: Yards per carry allowed by the Packers last season, which ranked 29th in the NFL, as well as over the previous six seasons, which ranked 30th. So, Sunday was an excellent start.

4.8: Yards per target for receiver Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson, who caught 6-of-15 passes for 72 yards. Last season, he averaged 9.27 per target, good for ninth in the NFL among players with 60 receptions.

5: Drives with a first down by Green Bay’s offense. The Packers scored three touchdowns and two field goals on those drives.

5: Consecutive Week 1 losses by the Jaguars.

5.3: Yards per catch by Jordy Nelson on his six receptions. His career average is 15.3.

6: Plays of 20-plus yards by Jacksonville's offense.

6: Plays of 10-plus yards by Green Bay's offense.

7: Length of Jacksonville’s long rush.

7: Number of tackles for losses by the Packers on running plays.

11: Games by Aaron Rodgers with two-plus touchdown passes and one-plus touchdown run since he took over as the starter in 2008. Only Cam Newton has more, according to ESPN Stats & Info’s Twitter feed.

12.0: Yards per catch on Robinson’s six receptions. Among players with at least 60 catches, he led the NFL with a 17.5-yard average last year.

90: The temperature at kickoff. That made it tied for the third-hottest game in Packers history, behind 102 at San Diego in 1978 and 102 at Arizona in 2003 and tied with at Pittsburgh in 1965 and at Tampa Bay in 1992. "I’ve never seen anything like it," guard T.J. Lang said. "It was hard to breathe at times, especially that long drive we had there into the fourth quarter. It was tough. I think the only thing that rivals it, a couple years ago we played in Miami and I think our offense had about 90 plays that game. We were hurting for a while after that one. But we knew it was going to be hot. We’ve had a hot training camp though in Wisconsin, so that helped prepare us a little bit. But it’s always something you need to overcome a little bit. Luckily for us it kind of wore them down too there in the end."

95.1: Rodgers’ passer rating. He’s gone 11 consecutive games without a rating of 100, with his 95.1 the fourth-best during that career-long stretch.

121: Number of yards the Packers were outgained by through the air vs. Jacksonville. During the Rodgers era, that is the fourth-biggest deficit in victory, though that isn’t even close to the 251-yard disadvantage in last year’s home win vs. San Diego.
