One of the professional football teams in the NFL in the United States of America is the Green Bay Packers. Former high school football opponents Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun created it on August 11, 1919. Lambeau asked his employer, the meat packing company Indian Packing Company, for money to buy uniforms.
For equipment and clothes, he was given $500 with the request that the squad bear the name of the donor. The Green Bay Packers have played more games in their home city than any other NFL team. The American Professional Football Association, a brand-new national pro football league that had been established the year before, awarded the Packers a franchise in August 1921.
The Green Bay Packers faced the New York Giants in Green Bay’s first NFC Championship Game in ten years in January 2008. Lawrence Tynes’ field goal in overtime cost his team the game, 23-20. The NFC team was led by Mike McCarthy during the 2008 Pro Bowl in Hawaii.
For the second year in a row, the Green Bay Packers won the NFC North Division. In addition, they received the NFC’s top seed and a bye in the opening round. In their fourth straight game loss in five appearances under Rodgers, they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship after defeating the Los Angeles Rams 32-18 in the Divisional Round.
