I’ve done a little research into the games that this Jeff Rice guy has done Packers games, which for some will include most of the same crew and head ref that we just faced. I found some interesting things.
2013 vs Bears - this was a loss for the Packers, as Seneca Wallace was starting the game (Rodgers was hurt). What was interesting is the Packers were not assessed one single penalty for the entire game. Zip, zero, nada. It was a perfect game for them.
2018 vs Falcons - The Packers won this game 34-20 but it wasn’t even that close. The Pack went up 34-7 and it was never actually a game. What’s interesting is that the Falcons were assessed 13 penalties for 101 yards with the Packers getting only 6 penalties for 37 yards. What even more interesting is WHEN each team got their penalties. With the Falcons you can see a similar pattern to what happened to us. When the Packers needed a call, or series of calls, they got it. I’m only seeing 1 penalty given to the Packers in the entire 1st half. It was on a punt return where they called holding, which backed them up to the 7 yard line. The very 1st play of the drive they throw a 15 yard penalty on the Falcons, so the Packers weren’t backed up anymore. Get this - none of the other 5 penalty flags were thrown against the Packers until they had a 34-7 lead.
