The Green Bay Packers are slated to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Conference Championship. A win will earn them the NFC Championship as well as their sixth Super Bowl appearance. However, they are not the only feats for them.

A victory over Bucs will mark the 37th postseason victory for Green Bay Packers, a record that has been in the possession for the New England Patriots, with 30 of them during Tom Brady’s reign, who will don the Tampa Bay shirt against Packers at the Lambeau Field.

Packers earned their first ever postseason victory all the way back in 1936 with a win over Boston in the NFL Championship Game. Since then, they have clinched 36 postseason victories, a number they share with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Dallas Cowboys have the third highest postseason wins with 36, followed by San Francisco 49ers at fourth place with 32 wins.

Moreover, a win over Bucs will not only set Packers on par with the Patriots, but they will also have a chance to set a new record- a historic 38th postseason win if they manage to clinch the trophy at the Super Bowl LV against either Chiefs or Bills, as a cherry on top.

Packers won their fourth and last Lombardi Trophy a decade ago, when they defeated Steelers 31-25 at the Super Bowl XLV on 6th February 2011 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

On the other hand, its not just the club that are set to have a record set. Fritzie Neitzel, an 85-year-old lady from Green Bay, has been able to hold onto her streak of watching Packers in the postseason, starting all the way from 1945, when she was just a 10-year-old girl.

Meanwhile, the NFL has decided to plan the allowance of 22,000 fans at the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay this year. The Raymond James Stadium, although will have only one third of its seats filled, the presence of fans is expected to set the aura that the greatest sporting event in the United States is famous for.
