The Green Bay Packers, who are commemorating their 100th birthday, are attempting to win their fifth Super Bowl and 14th NFL championship. The Packers have already won more NFL championships than any other club in history, so it would be natural for them to win one during the NFL's 100th season.
In addition to having the most NFL titles, the Packers also have the most Super Bowl victories with five. They've never been defeated during the regular season or the playoffs.
The Green Bay Packers were founded on February 4, 1919. They're owned by Mike Geiger and his family. The team's main office is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The Green Bay Packers played their first game on September 21, 1919. They lost that game 23-0 against Chicago. From then on, the team was always in the race for the title until they finished second in 1922. Since then, they've only missed the postseason twice: in 1940 and 1946.
During their first three years, the Packers didn't have a single player who would go on to win the Hall of Fame honor. In fact, they had no players who were selected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame until 1929 when Carl Eller was added.
However, since then, there have been nine players elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame who either played for or coached the Green Bay Packers.
After four games, the Packers are unbeaten. The Green Bay Packers have made a solid start to their 2020 season. They are presently unbeaten and one of the league's best clubs. They are one of just six unbeaten teams.
The last time that the Packers started 4-0 was in 1995. That team went on to win the Super Bowl. Can this year's squad duplicate or better that feat? It is certainly possible considering they are playing some very good football. A lot of people might say that this is not the same team that lost to Chicago by 29 points last season. But the truth is that no team is identical at the beginning of each season. This version of the Packers is proving them wrong so far. They have won their first four games by an average score of 35-7. That's a pretty good start.
In fact, only two other teams have begun 4-0 - the 2010 New York Giants and the 2019 Kansas City Chiefs. Both of those teams went on to win the Super Bowl. So it is possible for the Packers to go undefeated and win the NFL title. Of course, they would have to beat out several other strong clubs who are also off to perfect starts. But it is certainly within reach if they keep playing well. As one of the top five or six teams in the league, they should have no problems reaching the postseason again.
The Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have played each other in regular season and postseason games. The two clubs have met 55 times (including one playoff game), with the Green Bay Packers winning 33 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning 21. They've also tied once before.
How many championships have the Green Bay Packers won? Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl seven times: in 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1996, and 2010.
The original version of this story was published on September 28, 2017, before to the opening game of the season between the Bears and the Packers.

With three minutes remaining in their season opener against the reigning champions, the Green Bay Packers appeared to be in control.
The Packers have won the Super Bowl four times, including the first two editions following the 1966 and 1967 seasons. Green Bay also won nine NFL titles prior to the Super Bowl era.
The Packers of Green Bay The Green Bay Packers won their fourth Super Bowl and 13th world championship on Sunday night in front of 103,219 fans at Cowboys Stadium, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. The victory also ended Pittsburgh's bid for its third title in four years. The last Steeler to win a Super Bowl was left guard Max Starks in 2009. Running back Jamaal Charles scored two touchdowns and had 105 yards rushing as the champion Packers (15-3) defeated the second-place Steelers (14-4) by taking advantage of three turnovers by Pittsburgh. MVP Antonio Brown had one touchdown catch and 107 receiving yards for Pittsburgh.
Charles became the first player in NFL history with two 100-yard games in a single Super Bowl season. He also became the first player in Super Bowl history with two touchdown catches in a game. Charles now has six total scores this postseason. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had nine receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown for Pittsburgh. Left tackle Marvelous Marvitez was named the game's most valuable player after he helped protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during his record sixth consecutive postseason start. The former No. 3 overall pick played all but three offensive snaps in the opener against Seattle and didn't give up a sack until midway through the third quarter of the AFC Championship Game against Denver when Jabaal Sheard got around him for a 9-yard loss.
