The name was a natural since the team was sponsored first by the Indian Packing Company and later the Acme Packing Company. Although both companies went out of business, the team prospered under the name Packers.

1919: On the evening of August 11th a group of young athletes, called together by Curly Lambeau and George Calhoun, gathered in the dingy editorial room of the old Green Bay Press-Gazette building and organized a football team. The initial spark had been struck a few weeks before during a casual street corner conversation between Lambeau and Calhoun. They talked Curly's employer at the Indian Packing Company into putting up some money for equipment. Because the packing company, which also permitted the use of its athletic field for practice, had provided the team's jerseys the club was identified in its early publicity as a project of the company. With this tie-in the name "Packers" was a natural, although the corporation had practically faded out of the picture before the season was half over. That 1st season the team won 10 games and lost only 1 against other teams from Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Games were played in an open field with no fences or bleachers, and interested fans "passed the hat."
1920: In the Packers 2nd season a section was of stands was built, it was just a small bleacher with a capacity of a couple hundred, on one side of the field, and a fee charged to sit there.
1921: The Packers were so successful that after 2 seasons, officials at the Packing Company helped Curly Lambeau into obtaining a franchise in the new national pro football league that had been formed in 1920. The Packers played their first league game at Hagemeister Park on October 23rd, as the Packers beat the Minneapolis Marines 7-6. The Packers would go 3-2-1 in their first NFL season, as they could not afford to play an extensive league schedule. However, on November 27th the Packers were shut out by the Staleys in Chicago 20-0. It would be the birth of the best rivalry in NFL history, as the Packers, and soon to be named Bears became a driving force in the development of pro football.
1922: The Packers 2nd NFL season almost never happened as the Packing Company refused to pay for another season, and the franchise revoked. However i was reinstated when Curley Lambeau gained other backers and bought the franchise back for the team. Troubles continued during that season. One game was rained out and the insurance company wouldn't pay off because the official amount of rain was one one-hundredth of an inch short of that required in the policy. Another storm threatened a game late in the season when the Packers were scheduled to play the Duluth Kelleys. However, it proved the founding of the modern community corporation. A.B. Turnbull, GM of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, told the Packers to play anyway. He then went out and helped organize the businessmen of Green Bay in the support of the team, and the Green Bay Football Corporation was formed.
1923: With their old megshift stadium being torn down to make way for a High School the Packers were forced to move to an old baseball stadium called Bellevue Park. The stadium was clearly inadequate for football, but still drew large crowds when the Packers faced the Chicago Bears for the 2nd time ever on October 3rd. The Bears would win 3-0, but the Packers would have a solid season at 7-2.
1924: In their second season at Bellevue Park all 5 games at home allowing only 3 point sin the process. However on the road they struggles winning only 2 of 6 games, including a shut loss in Chicago to the Bears.
1925: After the Packers began play at Bellevue Park, the fans of the Packers began to demand a stadium be built for the team that was already becoming the identity of the small Wisconsin town. So the town put up a new stadium on their old field in back of the high school called City Stadium. The paint was barley dry when the first game was played at the new stadium, which had wooden fences and wooden bleachers. In that first game on September 20th the Packers defeated the Hammond Pros 14-0. A week later the fans of Green Bay witnessed the Packers first every victory over the Chicago Bears 14-10. The Bears would get revenge in Chicago later in the season as the Packers finished the season with an 8-5 record.

The game was played in New York, as the Redskins were in the middle of relocating to Washington.

1945: After beating the Chicago Bears in the season opener the Packers faced the Detroit Lions at Marquette Stadium in Milwaukee.

The Packers would finally show some of that Majik that gave fans hopes when they won 3 straight to improve to 6-5. However, it was not meant to be as the team lost their final 5 games to finish with a disappointing 6-10 record.
1991: Quarterback Don Majikowski struggled early and was benched in favor of Mike Tomczak. The move does not work as the Packers endure a horrid 4-12 season. Near the end of the season big changes were taking shape as Ron Wolfe is hired as executive vice president and general manager by president Bob Harlan, with full authority to run the football operation. One of Wolfe's first moves is to completely over haul the coaching staff, which began with dismissal of Lindy Infante.
1992: Banking on a successful tenure year as offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, the Packers hire Mike Holmgren to be their head coach, hoping he could bring some of the 49ers winning ways along with him. The Packers would also begin to rebuild their offense, by trading for Brett Favre a 2nd year QB from the Atlanta Falcons. With Don Majikowski back under center the Packers struggled early, and sat at 3-6, as the team decided to give the young gunslinger Brett Favre a chance. After initially struggling Favre more then impressed getting the Packers on the doorstep of the playoffs by winning 6 in a row. However a loss in the final game of the season dropped the Packers out of the Playoffs at 9-7.
1993: To improve the defense the Packers stun the NFL by signing the prize of the first free agency market DE Reggie White. However, the Packers would get off to a 1-4 start as Brett Favre struggled with interceptions. Favre would settle down and would have another stellar season passing for 3,303 yards, as the packers started to win. The Packers would win 8 of their next 10 to clinch a playoff berth. However, with a chance to win the NFC Central the Packers lost to the Lions in Detroit 30-20. In the Wild Card round the 6th seeded Packers returned to Detroit for a rematch with the Lions. The two teams battled back and forth all day as the Lions had a 24-21 lead late in the 4th Quarter. However Brett Favre would bring the Pack down the field and hit Sterling Sharpe with a 40-yard TD pass with 55 seconds left to give the Packers a 28-24 upset win. A week later the Packers would have a much more daunting task in the Dallas Cowboys. The Packers would hold a 3-0 lead after 1 Quarter but the Cowboys offense was too much to overcome as the Packers season ended with a 27-17 loss in Dallas.
1994: Brett Favre continued to establish himself as on of the best Quarterbacks in the NFL by passing for 3,882 yards, while throwing 33 TD passes. However the Packers struggled with injuries, and sat at 6-7 needing to win their final 3 games to make the playoffs. As Sterling Sharpe struggled with a neck injury the Packer forged ahead and stayed alive in the playoff drive by beating the Chicago bears at Lamebu Field 40-3. One week later the Packers would end a 61-year tradition by playing their final game in Milwaukee, needing to win gain the Pack came through beating the Atlanta Falcons 21-17. The Packers would go on to win their final game of the season against the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay to finish with a 9-7 record and qualify for the playoffs. In the Wild Card round the Packers hosted the Detroit Lions, at Lambeau Field. The Packers would have to play the game without Sterling Sharpe who was diagnosed with a career ending neck injury. The Packers used RD Dorsey Levens to control the ball for 37 minutes as the Packers won 16-12 while holding Lions RB Barry Sanders to minus 1 yard rushing. However a week later the Packers season would end in Dallas with a 35-9 loss to the Cowboys.
1995: With loss of Sterling Sharpe most thought that Brett Favre would be in trouble. However, he proved that he was the best QB in the NFL by passing for 4,413 yards while throwing 38 TD passes, which was good enough to win the NFL MVP. Favre MVP season was good enough to bring the Packers their first Division Title in 23 years at 11-5. Despite their 11-5 record the Packers could not earn a 1st round bye, and they would have to face the 6th seeded Atlanta Falcons. After falling behind early 7-0 the Packers offense caught fire and scored 27 points to take a 27-10 lead into halftime. The Packers would go on to win the game easily 37-20. However, if the Packers were going to take the next step they needed to dethrone the defending Super Bowl Champion 49ers in San Francisco. The Packers sending a message to the NFL jumped out to a 21-0 lead, and did not look back beating the 49ers 27-17 to advance to the NFC Championship Game for teh first time in 27 years. The NFC Championship Game would take place in Dallas where the Packers last 2 playoff runs had ended. The Packers and Cowboys battled back and forth for 3 Quarters as the pack held a 28-24 lead going into the final 15 minutes. However the Pack just ran out of gas as the Cowboys scored 14 unanswered points to advance to Super Bowl XXX.
1996: Almost form the point the 1995 season ended in Dallas, the Packers had only one goal in mind and that was Super Bowl XXI. The Packers would jump out to an 8-2 start heading into a Monday Night match up with Cowboys in Dallas. The Packers hoped to send a message instead, doubts rose about weather the team was ready to win as the Cowboys used 7 FGs to beat the Pack 21-6. The loss could have deflated the Packers, instead it made them more determined, as they would win their final 5 games to finish with a 13-3 record, which captured the NFC Central, and Home Field Advantage, as Brett Favre won his 2nd straight MVP award. In the Divisional Playoffs the Packers make quick work of the San Francisco 49ers beating them on a damp and soggy field 35-14, as fans anticipated a rematch with the Cowboys. However, the rematch never materialized as the Cowboys were knocked off by the 2nd year Carolina Panthers. The Panthers would give the Packers problems in the early going intercepting Favre twice to take a 10-7 lead. However the Packers would respond with a 71-yard TD drive to take the lead 14-10, the Pack would add a FG just before halftime to get a 7-point cushion. After the two teams traded FGs at the start of the 3rd Quarter Favre hit Antonio Freeman with a 66-yard TD pass that gave the Pack a 27-13 lead to break the Panthers back. The Packers would go on to advance to the Super Bowl with a 30-13 win.
Super Bowl XXXI: The Packers were finally back in the Super Bowl, which this year was held in New Orleans. The Packers were 14-point favorites going into the game with New England Patriots. The Pack jumped out early grabbing a 10-0 lead. However, the Pats struck back quickly and took a 14-10 lead the 2nd Quarter. The Packers jumped back out in front right away as Brett Favre hit Antonio Freeman on an 81-yard TD, setting a new Super Bowl record. The Packers would go on to take a 27-14 lead into halftime. The Patriots would cut the lead to 27-21 in the closing moments of the 3rd Quarter. However, on the ensuing kickoff the Packers put the game away on a 99-yard kick return by Super Bowl MVP Desmond Howard, the Pack would go on to add a 2-point conversion to take a35-21 lead into the final 15 minutes. In the 4th Quarter the Packers would smother the Patriots as Reggie White collected 3 sacks as the Packers held on to their 35-21 lead. For the first time in 29 years the Vince Lombardi trophy returned to Green Bay. It was also the Packers record 12th Championship.
1997: The Packers easily won their 3rd straight NFC Central Division Championship with a 13-3 record, as Brett Favre won his 3rd consecutive MVP award by passing for 3,867 yards. In the Divisional Playoffs it was a battle of the Bays and Green Bay hosted the Buccaneers from Tampa. The Packers would away late to advance to their 3rd straight NFC Championship with a 27-7 win. To get back to the Super Bowl the Packers would have to win on the road in San Francisco. From the get go it was clearly the Packers day as they pulled to a 13-3 halftime lead on sloppy field at 3Com Park. After a scoreless 3rd Quarter the Packers extend their lead to 16-3 on a Ryan Longwell FG. After the 49ers failed to score the Packers took time off the clock and put the game away with a Dorsey Levens TD. The 49ers would score a TD on the ensuing kickoff return but the Packers scooped up the on-side kick and ran out the clock to advance to their 4th Super Bowl with a 23-10 win.
Super Bowl XXXII: The Packers looking for their 4th Super Bowl Championship were in San Diego facing the Denver Broncos who were trying to erase the bad memories f their previous 4 Super Bowl Appearances in which they were blown out. The two teams battled back and forth all game as the lead seesawed in the first half. The Packers would come out of the lockers at halftime trailing 17-14; taking advantage of a Broncos fumble the Packers tied the game right away. However the Broncos would strike again taking a24-17 lead as the quarter expired. However the Packers responded quickly tying the game early in the 4th Quarter. The game would stay tied in tied until the 2-minute warning when the Bronco took the lead on a TD from the 1-yard line. The Packers would take the ball and get into Broncos territory. However, the Broncos defense tightened up and knocked Robert Brooks down when he tried to catch a key 3rd Down Pass. With 24 seconds left the packers faced a do die 4th down Favre saw Mark Chumra wide open but his pass was deflected and crashed to the ground with Packers hopes for Championship number 13.
1998: The Packers get off to a 4-0 start as they extend their franchise record home winning streak to 25 games. However, the Packers home streak would come to an end on Minnesota against the Vikings on a rainy Monday Night. The Packers quest for a 4th straight Western Division Title would be hampered by key injuries to C Frank Winters, and RB Dorsey Levens. However, the Packers would still make the playoffs with a solid 11-5 record. In the Wild Card Game the Packers would take on the 49ers in San Francisco. The game seas sawed back and forth, until the 4th Quarter when the Packers grabbed a 27-23 lead. However, the 49ers would stun the Packers when Steve Young hit Terrell Owens with3 seconds left in the game to give the 49ers a 30-27 win. The loss would also mark the end of an era as Coach Mike Holmgren opted out of his contract to take a job as coach and GM of the Seattle Seahawks.
1999: With Ray Rhodes now holding the coaching reigns the Packers got off to a 3-1 start winning all 3 games in the final minute. After losing 4 of their next 5 as Brett Favre played through a sprained thumb, the Packers looked to have the Playoff sewn up However 3 straight losses would drop them out of the playoffs, as they won their last game of the season to finish 8-8. Saying that the Packers lacked the toughness and fire he desired, GM Ron Wolf relieved Rhodes on his head coaching duties the evening of the team's final game, also firing all of the assistant coaches.
2000: After the quick failure of Ray Rhodes the Packers turned to former assistant coach Mike Sherman who followed, Mike Holmgren to Seattle. The Packers would get off to a slow start under Sherman and sat at 5-7, after an 0-2 start. With the playoffs all but out of reach the Packers closed the season on a strong note winning their final 4 games including 2 against teams bound for the postseason. Following the season GM Ron Wolfe would retire, as coach Mike Sherman was given his responsibilities.
2001: The Packers capitalize on their strong finish by putting together a solid 12-4 record. While compiling their 12-4 mark the Packers went 6- against the NFC Central including a sweep of the Chicago bears. However, bad losses to the Atlanta Falcons, and Tennessee Titans prevented them from winning the Division. In the Wild Card game they were matched up against a failure foe in the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field. The 49ers would hold a 7-6 lead, at halftime, but the Packers would comeback in the 2nd Half to earn a 25-15 victory staying undefeated at Lambeau Field in the postseason. However, a week later on the road in St. Louis the Packers season would come to a crashing end, as Brett Favre had a nightmarish 6-interception game in a 45-17 loss to the Rams.
2002: The Packers came flying out of the gates winning 8 of their first 9 games as they had the newly established NFC Northern Division clinched by midseason with their other 3 divisi0n opponents on the way to losing 10 or more. Once again Brett Favre would be the driving force passing for 3,658 yards while starting every game for the 11th straight season. After stumbling at the end of November with road losses to the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers the Packers appeared to be on the verge of securing home field advantage needing just a win over the New York Jets in the final game of the season. However, the Jets would trounce the Packers 42-17, as the Packers who finished with a 12-4 record not only lost home field, but also their first round bye in the playoffs. In the playoffs the Packers who had a perfect regular season record at Lambeau Field were stunned in the snow by the Atlanta Falcons 27-7, in what was their first home playoff loss in franchise history.
2003: With Lambeau Field newly renovation the Packers celebrated their historic season in the first week of the season. However the rededication was spoiled as the Packers were beaten by the Minnesota Vikings 30-25. After rebounding with a big win over the Detroit Lions the following week the Packers wilted in the desert heat losing to the Arizona Cardinals 20-13, as the Packers struggled to a 3-4 start. Things could have gotten bleaker as Brett Favre suffered a broken thumb on his throwing hand. Ignoring the pain Favre continued to play and carried the Pack on his shoulders with a 30-27 win on the road over the Vikings. After a loss in the rain on Monday Night to the Philadelphia Eagles Favre led the Packers to a key win on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers keeping their playoff hopes alive at 5-5. After splitting the next 2 games the Packers were faced with winning the rest of the way or missing the playoffs. After winning the next 2 the Packers Favre was dealt more pain as his father died of a sudden heart attack the day before a key Monday Night Road Game against the Oakland Raiders. Not deterred by pain or heartache Favre had one of the best games of his career passing for 399 yards in an impressive 41-7 win. However, heading into the final game of the season the Packers need to win and get some help to make the playoffs as NFC North Champs after their Wild Card hopes were erased when the Cowboys lost to the New Orleans Saints. The Packers did their part easily beating the Denver Broncos 31-3, but had to look helplessly as the Vikings were beating the hapless Cardinals 17-6 late in the 4th Quarter. However the fates smiled down upon Green Bay as the Cardinals made a stirring comeback winning the game 18-17 on a miracle TD on the games final play. The play was shown on the videoboard and Lambeau Field went nuts as the Packers won the division with a 10-6 record. In the playoffs the Packers found themselves locked in a tight game with the Seattle Seahawks as the game went back and forth and was tied 27-27 at the end of regulation. In overtime Al Harris would be the hero intercepting a pass from Matt Hasselbeck and returning in 52-yards for a game winning TD. In the Divisional Round the Packers got off to a fast start leading the Philadelphia Eagles 14-0 at the end of the 1st Quarter. However the Pack's offense staled as the Eagles clawed their way back into the game tying it at 14 in the 4th Quarter. However the Packers responded and retook the lead 17-14 on Ryan Longwell Field Goal with 4:38 left. The Packers defense would have the Eagles in a hole needing just one more stop on a 4th and 26 the Packers defense softened up for a moment allowing a miracle first down as the Eagles tied the game and forced overtime. In Overtime Favre made an ill-advised pass which set up the Eagles for a chip shot game winning field goal as the Packers Super Bowl dreams ended with a heartbreaking 20-17 loss.
2004: The Packers would start the season with a solid road win on Monday Night Football beating the defending NFC Champion Carolina Panthers 24-14. However, the Packers would struggle losing the next 4 games, including 3 at Lambeau Field. The Packers would end their losing streak in a big way beating the Detroit Lions on the road 38-10. The win in Detroit would be just the spark the Packers needed as they won their next 6 games, including a thrilling 34-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings on a Ryan Longwell 33-yard Field Goal as time expired, to climb back to the top of the NFC North. After losing 2 of 3 games the battle for the division title came down to 1 game as the Packers faced the Vikings on the road in National Televised game on Christmas Eve. The game would go back and forth as Brett Favre passed for 365 yards as the Packers won again 34-31 on Ryan Longwell's 29-yard Field Goal as time expired. The Packers would go on to finish the season with a solid 10-6 record as they closed the season with a solid win over the Chicago Bears. In the playoffs the Packers would face the Vikings again after two thrilling regular season wins. However, this time the Packers would dig themselves an early hole as they fell behind in the 1st Quarter 17-0. The Packers would never recover as Favre had 4 passes intercepted in a crushing 31-17 loss at Lambeau Field.
2005: After their season ended with disappointing playoff losses the last four seasons the Packers entered the season, knowing the Brett Favre era was nearing its end as they drafted QB Aaron Rodgers in the first round. From the start of the season it was obvious that the Packers were in for a long season as WR Javon Walker was injured and lost for the rest of the season in a Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions. The hone opener would bring more frustration as the Packers comeback fell short in a 26-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The struggles would continue the next two weeks as the Packers dropped to 0-4, with Favre increasingly becoming prone to mistakes from trying to do too much. In Week 5 the Packers would take out all their early season frustrations on the New Orleans Saints winning their first game of the season 52-3 as Brett Favre led the way with 3 TD passes. However it was a tiny oasis in a barren desert as the Packers would lose their next three as the injuries mounted with both RB Ahman Green and back up Najeh Davenport being lost for the rest for the season. At 1-7 the Packers would see the emergence of a new go to running back as Samkon Gado had 103 yards rushing and two touchdowns in a 33-25 win on the road over the Atlanta Falcons. The Packers misery though would go on to last the remainder of the season as Brett Favre threw a career high 29 interceptions, as the Packers finished in last place with a terrible 4-12 record. Following the season Coach Mike Sherman would be replaced by Mike McCarthy while Brett Favre spent the entire off-season contemplating retirement before ultimately deciding to return for another season.
2006: The Packers who had hopes of improving off a 4-12 season with new Coach Mike McCarthy didn't start off on the right foot as they were shutout in their season opener at Lambeau Field by the rival Chicago Bears 26-0. After losing their first two games at home, the Packers earned their first win in Detroit beating the Lions 31-24 as Brett Favre passed the 400 career Touchdown milestones with 3 TD passes and 340 yards passing. However, the Packers would continue to struggle as they dropped their next two games to enter the bye week 1-4. Following the bye week, the Packers played much better, as they won three of their next four games. However, at home their struggles continued as they were shutout for the second time at Lambeau Field by the New England Patriots 35-0, as Brett Favre missed the second half with an injury, as back up Aaron Rodgers struggled completing just 4-of-12 passes for 32 yards, before getting injured himself. While Rodgers was lost for a season, Favre shook of the injuries and continued his streak of starts, which at season's end was 257, including playoff games. However after two more losses it was going to take a miracle for the Packers who were 4-8 to make the playoffs in 2006. That's not to say the Packers were going to give up as they stunned the San Francisco 49ers on the road 30-19 as Donald Driver had a stellar game with 169 receiving yards. After struggling at home all season the Packers kept their faint playoff hopes alive by beating the Lions and Minnesota Vikings to improve to 7-8 heading into the final game of the season a rematch with the Bears in Chicago. With the Bears-Packers game taking place in primetime the Packers would know when kickoff arrived if they had a chance to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Packers, they were not able to get the help they need, but they beat the Bears any way 26-7 finishing with an 8-8 record. Following the season Brett Favre would not mull retirement long as he announced his intentions to return early, with several of Dan Marino career passing records in reach.
