2011 Game-By-Game: Week 4

Posted May 17, 2011

In Week 4 of the 2011 season, the Broncos play their second consecutive road game. This time it's a trip to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Over the next few weeks, we'll take a look at the Broncos' 2011 schedule game-by-game, including a recap of what happened the last time the teams clashed, matchups to keep an eye on and more.

Below is a closer look at Week 4's game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Week 4: at Green Bay Packers
• DATE: Sunday, October 2
• TIME: 2:15 p.m. MDT
• LOCATION: Lambeau Field
• TELEVISION: CBS
• OPP. 2010 RECORD: 10-6
• ALL-TIME VS. OPP.: 5-5-1
Opponent

THE LAST TIME: The Broncos and Packers last faced off in the regular season in 2007 in one of the most memorable Monday Night Football games in INVESCO Field at Mile High history -- albeit for the wrong reasons.

After battling to a 13-13 tie at the end of regulation including an 89-yard, game-tying drive led by Jay Cutler, the Packers won the overtime coin toss.

Then-Packers quarterback Brett Favre needed just one play to seal things up -- an 82-yard touchdown strike to Greg Jennings that gave Green Bay a 19-13 win.

"That's what happens when you don't finish things off in this league," Brandon Stokley said at the time. "It comes down to a coin flip."

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Lambeau effect. The Broncos haven't played in Green Bay since the 2003 season, when no one on the current roster was on the team. With the game set for early October, it shouldn't be too cold -- knock on wood -- but it will be interesting to see how the homefield advantage factors into the contest.

KEY MATCHUP: Broncos offensive line vs. Packers pass rush
In 2010, the Packers ranked second in the league in both sacks -- led by Clay Matthews' 13.5 -- and interceptions during the regular season, stats that helped fuel their run to Super Bowl XLV. The Broncos allowed 40 sacks last season, tied for ninth-highest in the league. If the Broncos want to knock off the reigning champs on the road, it will start with the battle in the trenches.

NOTES: 2011 will be the 12th consecutive season the Broncos have played at least one of the previous season's two Super Bowl teams...The Broncos and Packers have split the past four matchups, if you include Denver's Super Bowl XXXII victory...The two teams also squared off in the 2008 preseason, with Green Bay snaring a 27-24 win.
