Green Bay Packers Superbowl Championship 2011

 
Going back to the pre-Superbowl NFL Championship games, Superbowl XLV was Green Bay's 13th appearance in an NFL Championship Game. Green Bay enjoyed the title of NFL Champions for three consecutive years (1929-1931) in the days before the NFL insituted a playoff system culminating in an NFL Championship game. Green Bay has been NFL/Superbowl Champions a total of 13 times in franchise history.

Green Bay won Superbowl XLV on Feb. 6, 2011 by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31 to 25 in Dallas. That win represents Green Bay's last Superbowl appearance.

The Packers had the opportunity to once again return to the Superbowl when they played the defending Champion Seattle Seahawks on January 18, 2015 in Seattle. Unfortunately, for fans of the Packers, they lost to Seattle 28-22.

The Pack is once again in the playoffs after the 2015 season, this time as a Wildcard team after losing the NFC North title to the Minnesota Vikings. The Pack's first playoff game of the 2016-2017 season came against the New York Giants, who they defeated in Wild Card Playoffs by a score of 38–13. The Packers play the Dallas Cowboys January 15, 2017 in the Divisional round.
