For the record

Here are some pre-game notes and numbers as the Packers prepare for the Washington Redskins this Sunday:<p> For their last 25 games, in the wake of their current 5-1 start, the Packers own the league's best record, 21-5.<p>

They also have won 17 consecutive games when leading at halftime, the longest active streak in the NFL.

Additionally, Sunday's success in New England was their third in four road games this season, matching the New Orleans Saints, the only other NFL team to have played as many four road contests to date, and a rare achievement for the Green and Gold. Over the past 30 years, they previously had won three of their first four road games in twice – in 1987 and 1996. Along the way, they did open with a 4-0 road record in the 1972 season.

Under Mike Sherman, the Packers are now 10-4 in their last 14 road games.

The Packers also have won 17 straight when leading at halftime, the NFL's longest active streak. Under Sherman, they are 19-1 with a lead at halftime and, highly consistent, have not lost consecutive games in 33 regular-season weeks, since Oct. 1-8, 2000. Only Philadelphia, of the NFL's 31 other teams, has longer active streak.
