The Green Bay Packers rolled to an easy 37-10 victory Sunday night over the Minnesota Vikings.
The win clinched the top spot in the NFC with a week to go and also got the Packers to 13-3.
That marks the third consecutive season with that record and the Packers have a chance to make it 14-3 next week.
This type of success has become routine for the Packers under Matt LaFleur.
But it marks the first time in NFL history that a team has finished with three consecutive 13-win seasons.
The Packers are the first team in NFL history to win 13 games in 3 straight seasons.

This is an amazing feat and may have fans forgetting the Packers were 6-9-1 in 2018.
Routine Dominance In Green Bay
Rodgers is obviously the key individual to thank for the team’s success since 2019.
But there is a reason offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is a top head coaching candidate right now.
Everyone is working together well and there has been so sense of concern even after losing back-to-back NFC Championship Games.
As long as the Packers have Rodgers, they are in great shape.
Another 13-3 record will only heat up the speculation about the quarterback’s future with the team.
Why would they trade him away after a record-setting season?

Jordan Love is not going to lead the team to 13 wins in 2022.
In fact, few quarterbacks could do that in general.
All this winning may just convince all sides that keeping the band together is the best option for everyone.
Rodgers may even win the NFL MVP award for a second consecutive season.
Having all this success and then moving on would be a crushing blow to the momentum in Green Bay.
The Love era can wait another year if the Packers are serious about seeking yet another 13-win season in 2022.
