  1. The Packers have indeed had negative rushing plays. Four, in fact (all to the right).

    But the way the headers are set up on the NFL’s Stat page, it’s an easy mistake to make.

    Still, they’re tied with the Bucs for best in the League with only four negative rushing plays total, and that’s impressive (especially for Green Bay, considering that the passing game is their meat and potatoes).
