Green Bay Packers Christmas Day Game History (All-Time Record and Results)


Christmas and the NFL make a perfect pairing. The holiday has long been a featured part of the league's regular-season schedule, leading to some memorable moments.

One team that's no stranger to Christmas Day action is the Green Bay Packers. Here's everything you need to know about the Packers' history on Christmas.

Packers Christmas Game History

The NFL first played games on Christmas Day in 1971, but this holiday didn't become a fixture of the regular season schedule until 1989.

The Packers made their first appearance on Christmas in 2005. They faced their rival the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field, but the away team came with the 24-17 win to ruin the holiday in Green Bay. Brett Favre threw zero touchdowns and a whopping four interceptions during that contest.

The Packers got a shot at revenge when they made their next Christmas appearances in 2011, once again versus the Bears. Green Bay emerged with a 35-21 victory, its first ever on Dec. 25, thanks to a five-touchdown performance by Aaron Rodgers.

The team's most recent Christmas game was in 2022, as the Packers traveled to face the Miami Dolphins. Green Bay spoiled the holiday for the home team, emerging with a 26-20 victory. Mason Crosby knocked home four field goals in the winning effort.
