For the record

In the wake of their 6-1 start, the Packers own the league's best record for their last 27 games (22-5).<p> They also now have won 18 consecutive games when leading at halftime, the longest active streak in the NFL. They are 20-1 under GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman when leading at halftime.<p>

Mike Sherman owns a 27-12 overall record in regular-season competition, a mark identical to that of Vince Lombardi after his first 39 games as Green Bay's head coach (1959-62).

The Packers are in the middle of a 34-day stretch without a road game. That's the team's longest continuous time in Wisconsin since 1963, when the Packers played their first four games at home and didn't hit the road until an Oct. 13 tilt at Minnesota; the schedule makers also granted similar homestands to Atlanta, the N.Y. Jets, San Francisco and Tampa Bay this season.
