There have been many high-scoring Green Bay Packers games in their storied Packers history. Considering they’ve won 13 total championships with four Super Bowls, 61 all time playoff appearances, and has been home to 10 MVP seasons from five different players, it only makes sense. The most points scored by the Packers in a given game was 57 in a 57-21 win over the Detroit Lions in 1945. How about since 2000? What are the best offensive Green Bay Packers in the 21st century?
5 Biggest-scoring Green Bay Packers Games Since 2000
Nov. 9, 2014 vs Chicago Bears, 55-14
It makes sense that the highest scoring Packers game happened against the Bears. Even if you remember how Aaron Rodgers effectively owns the Bears (he went 24-5 in Green Bay), not even the best odds as places like hillo-casino.com would have the Packers putting up a ridiculous 55 points.
The Packers dominated every facet of this game and got out to a 42-0 lead by half and even tacked on another field goal before the Bears found the endzone. Rodgers was the architect of those first six touchdowns with five different receivers. It was all Packers as three of those scores were explosive plays.
Green Bay finished their scoring thanks to a pick six and then Chicago returned the ensuing kick off 101 yards for the day’s final score. Rodgers led the way with 315 yards passing with six scores.
Dec. 23, 2012 vs Tennessee Titans, 55-7
On a brisk Sunday before Christmas, the Titans wandered into the friendly confines of Lambeau field only to end up completely shellacked. As with the game in 2014 vs the Bears, the Packers were in absolute control from the get-go and Rodgers got the scoring started with a rushing touchdown in the first.
In total, those 55 points were score unanswered until the Titans limped their way into the endzone with 1:39 to go. Green Bay found paydirt on the ground four times with three different players. Rodgers, in addition to his rushing touchdown, threw for two other scores to Greg Jennings and James Jones. Defensively, the Packers smothered the Titans to the tune of 180 total offensive yards and forced seven sacks.
Nov. 16, 2014 vs Philadelphia Eagles, 53-20
The 2014 season was a special one for the Packers despite falling in the NFC Championship. One of the highlights of the season was the back-to-back 50 burgers the Packers put up in November.
After smacking the Bears around, the Eagles fell victim to the Rodgers onslaught. In this one, Rodgers threw for 341 yards and three scores and added 32 yards on the ground. The Packers got the scoring going and scored the game’s first 17 points before an Eagles field goal early in the second. A Julius Peppers pick-six made the lead 39-6 before Philly found the endzone.
On the day, Green Bay scored three non-offensive touchdowns. In addition to that Peppers pick-six, Micah Hyde returned a punt and Casey Heyward scooped and scored.
Oct. 9, 2005 vs New Orleans Saints, 52-3
Before there was Aaron Rodgers, there was Brett Favre. Favre was best known for his gunslinger approach to the game, back-to-back-to-back MVPs, and his entire “will he/won’t he” retirement saga. However, let’s not let Rodgers’ prowess overshadow that Favre could really sling it.
Against the Saints in 2005, Favre and the Packers were nearly perfect. Contrary to the other entrants here, the Packers actually trailed early on in this game with a John Carney field goal. However, that was as good as it was going to get for the Saints.
Favre and company rattled off 52 unanswered thanks to his 215 yards and three touchdowns passing. Not to be outdone, the defense tacked on a pair of pick-sixes just for good measure.
Oct. 2, 2011 vs Denver Broncos, 49-23
Each of the top five highest-scoring Green Bay Packers games have occurred at home and this game against the Broncos is no different. Even though they ultimately came up short, this team was special. It was one of the greatest offenses in NFL history, being one of two teams to score north of 42 points six times in a single season. The 15-1 Packers are going to be a massive “What If?” case but Rodgers and company was on one in early October, 2011.
As with that 2005 battle with the Saints, the Broncos got the scoring started with an early field goal. Then, Green Bay scored 21 unanswered thanks to a pair of Rodgers touchdowns and a pick-six. After the Broncos clawed back to make it 21-17, the Packers scored another 28 unanswered. Denver scored a late touchdown but it was too little, too late.
Packers legend Aaron Rodgers was dealing on this day, completing 29 of 38 for 408 yards and four touchdowns. Just because all he does is score, Rodgers added 36 yards and two scores on the ground.
