Betting On The Green Bay Packers NFL Team In 2024
The Green Bay Packers play NFL football in the NFC North Division (nicknamed "The Black and Blue Division"). Dealing with the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings at least 2 times each year usually means a very competitive division, but in recent years the Green Bay Packers have been the best team. The Packers are the third oldest franchise in the entire NFL, playing football since 1919. They are uniquely the only community owned not-for-profit major league professional sports team in the entire United States.
The team claims 13 League Championships, more than any other in the National Football League. That includes 9 NFL Championships and 4 Super Bowl victories. There is definitely no love lost when the Packers play the Bears, Vikings or Lions, their chief rivals. The Chicago Bears - Green Bay Packers rivalry is one of the oldest in the NFL, going all the way back to 1921.

Betting on the 2024 Green Bay Packers
It is tough to follow a legend, much less a Hall of Famer. But Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has done that quite admirably, putting together a Hall of Fame resume himself. In 2014 he has led the Green Bay Packers to a 6 - 3 overall record, good for second in the NFC North. The Packers are 4 - 0 at home and 3 - 1 in the Division. After losing 2 of their first 3 games, Rodgers and the Packers have won 5 of 6 contests.
The team has a very attractive schedule the rest of the way, and will almost certainly make the postseason. RB Eddie Lacy leads the way in the backfield with 500 yards rushing, 4 TDs and a 4.0 YPC average. But the real difference on both sides of the ball is Rodgers. He threw an NFL record 6 first-half touchdown passes versus Chicago in a big divisional victory, is completing 67.5 percent of his passes, with 25 touchdowns against just 3 interceptions.
Randall Cobb is his favorite target, with the speedy receiver from the University of Kentucky averaging 14.8 yards per catch and 10 touchdowns.
Brett Favre Returns Green Bay to Championship Form
Because of lackluster play from the 70s through the early 90s, Ron Wolf was hired as General Manager of the Pack. It was hoped that he could return Green Bay to championship form, and he did so by hiring San Francisco 49ers Offensive Coordinator Mike Holmgren as the new Packers head coach. Quarterback Brett Favre was obtained in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons, and the rest is history. Replacing Don "Magic Man" Majkowski in 1992, Favre started every game for the Packers through the 2007 season. The 9 - 7 record in 1992 was the sign of a significant turnaround for the team.
Future Hall of Famer Reggie White was added to the team in 1993, eventually helping the Packers win the Super Bowl in 1996. In his 14 years as a Packer, Favre won the NFL MVP Title 3 times, in 1995, 1996 and 1997. He was an 11 time Pro Bowl selection and named to the NFL 1990s All Decade Team. He still owns multiple records, including most interceptions (336), most passing yards (71,838) and most wins (186). Incredibly, at a very difficult position to stay healthy, Brett Favre started a record 297 regular-season NFL games (321 including postseason appearances).
