Ranking the Green Bay Packers’ top five victories in the past decade.

It has been quite the decade for the Green Bay Packers.

Over the past 10 seasons, the Packers have reached the playoffs eight times, including this year. They’ve won a championship, reached the NFC Championship Game three times and the divisional round six times. They have eight winning seasons and have finished with double-digit wins seven times.

Yet despite all of their success, the Packers have also had their low points, including the firing of longtime head coach Mike McCarthy, who had brought a championship home at the start of the decade. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone twice. The first time, the team still managed to win the NFC North. The second time, Green Bay fell short of the playoffs and didn’t return for two years.

There have been highs and lows along the way, but it’s been an exciting decade in Packers News. And over the past 10 years, they’ve picked up some important victories. Some were defined by a play. Others by a dominant overall performance. Some mattered simply because of the significance of the game.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and rank the Packers’ greatest victories from the past decade. It’s hard to narrow it down to five, so we’ll begin with some honorable mentions.
