Most people would think of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as one of the best to ever play the position. However, those same people seem to forget the Packers are 5-23 in games against teams with winning records on the road since 2012. 


Over that period, that's a .179 winning percentage and the eighth-worst record in the NFL. That puts the Packers in the same conversation as the Washington Redskins (4-19 since 2012), Chicago Bears (4-20 since 2012) and Oakland Raiders (4-23 since 2012). The problem is, though, those organizations don't have one of the best quarterbacks in the league. As prolific as Rodgers and the Packers' dynasty has been throughout his career in Green Bay, these numbers are shocking.


Green Bay's record in this scenario doesn't even take into account an additional 2-4 record in the postseason since 2012. As more questions arise regarding head coach Mike McCarthy's job security, the Packers could take on three more road opponents with winning records by the time this season is over. 

This Sunday, the Packers face the Miami Dolphins before crossing corners of the country for a Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are currently 4-4 but could be above .500 with an upset win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.


10 days after Seattle, Green Bay hits the road again for a battle with the Minnesota Vikings, who currently sit at 5-3-1. The Vikings are guaranteed to be over .500 when they face the Packers, as they have a bye in Week 10 and have only one game before meeting them.


The last of these possible road games against teams above .500 would be against the Bears in Week 15. Obviously, a lot can happen between now and then, but they do have two games against the Detroit Lions and one against the New York Giants. On the flip side of the equation, they also have one game each against the Vikings and Rams.

Leading up to the Packers loss at Foxborough in Week 9, the general discrepancy in winning percentage on the road since 2012 between two of the NFL's greatest quarterbacks doesn't make sense.    


Something needs to change, and maybe that's McCarthy.
