The Green Bay Packers had a chance to make history in Week 11, as a win would have moved them past the Chicago Bears for most wins by an NFL team.

Instead, they made a different type of history with their 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Packers Week 11 Loss

The Packers have lost each of the last five games they've been favored in. While the rest of their roster is underwhelming, they've still been favored largely because reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is their quarterback.

With Thursday's loss, however, Rodgers became just the third MVP-winning quarterback in the Super Bowl era to lose five straight games as a favorite, following Kurt Warner in 2002 and Matt Ryan in 2015, both of whom lost six in a row.

If this season has proved anything, it's that Rodgers can't do it by himself. He hasn't been the same this year without his old top receiver Davante Adams, who wasn't adequately replaced in Green Bay's offense. The result has been a lot of miscommunication and frustration between Rodgers and his lackluster receiving corps.

Green Bay will try to turn things around on the road in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are arguably the best team in the NFC right now. The Packers are currently listed as 6.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, so at least Rodgers won't have to worry about making more ignominious history next week.
