Aggravating this year's situation is the Packers' post-bye destination: a date in the dome with the unbeaten Vikings. The storyline of the Packers' dome demise is an old one. After bye weeks, it seems to get worse. Each time the Packers have played in a dome after a bye week, they have lost. This year marks the first time Green Bay has two indoor games sandwiched around their week of "rest."
Other interesting runs include a five-season stretch from 1991-95 when the Packers lost their game after the bye. Only twice, 2001 and 1990, did the Packers win the game following the bye when they lost the game before.
