Green Bay Packers Team History

The Green Bay Packers are one of the most successful franchises in history, have won 13 championships, more than any other team in National Football League history. They won their first three by league standing (1929, 1930 and 1931), and ten since the NFL's playoff system was established in 1933 (1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1996 and 2010).

Green Bay also is the only NFL team to win three straight titles, having done it twice (1929-1931 and 1965-1967). In addition, the Packers won the first two Super Bowls (over Kansas City in 1966, 35-10, and over Oakland in 1967, 33-14), as well as a more recent one (over New England in 1996, 35-21).

Since the league implemented a playoff system in 1933, the Packers have played in the NFL's deciding game 13 times (11 NFL title appearances from 1936-67, two Super Bowls after the 1970 merger). Only the Giants (17) have played for more titles. The Packers take their name from a local packing plant that provided the team with uniforms in 1919. The Green Bay Packers are the only publicly owned team in the NFL

The Packers began their 2008 season with their 2005 first-round draft pick, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, under center, as the first QB other than Favre to start for the Packers in 16 years.
