The Green Bay Packers have surpassed the Chicago Bears to become the NFL’s all-time winningest team thanks to Sunday’s 28-19 victory over their archrival.
With their victory over the Bears in 2022, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers picked up their 787th victory, breaking a tie with Chicago for the most in league history.The Packers have never defeated the Bears before.
According to NFL Research, at the conclusion of each of the 102 inaugural seasons of the league, the Bears/Decatur Staleys franchise had the most regular-season victories of any team.After 2021, the Bears won 783-782 to the Packers’ one victory.
With their victory on Sunday, the Packers increased to 787-589-38 in their 102nd season.
Following the defeat, the Bears, now in their 103rd season, are 786-620-42 as a team.
According to USA Today, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur stated following the game, “The significance of this game, that’s a pretty cool deal to be the NFL’s all-time winningest franchise.”
The Bears, who are 3-10 this season, still have five weeks to tie or beat the Packers, who are 5-8. However, this Sunday marks the first time since 1921 that a team other than the Bears/Staleys has held sole possession of first place.
On December 3, 1921, the Buffalo All-Americans won to move up to 18-1-3 all-time and leapfrog the then-17-2-2 Staleys.
As a result, the National Football League (NFL) was in its final year as the American Pro Football Association when anyone was ahead of the Bears. Additionally, the NFL was not yet known as the NFL.
The Packers made history at their archrival’s expense on Sunday afternoon in Chicago.
