The Green Bay Packers debuted their new 1950s alternate jerseys in the Week 7 win over Washington last season. Green Bay fans who were in favor of the jersey design should be in good spirits after hearing the recent news about those same jerseys that broke on Friday.
According to Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy, Green Bay will wear these jerseys again in 2022 and every season through 2025. It has not been announced which game the Packers will wear these jerseys to during the coming season.
In the team’s win over Washington last October while wearing those same jerseys, back-to-back MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers went 27 of 35 for 274 passing yards, three touchdowns and a quarterback rating- 127.6 rear. The Green Bay defense forced two turnovers and recorded four sacks. First-team All-Pro linebacker De’Vondre Campbell led the team with 14 total tackles. The win is part of a seven-game winning streak en route to the NFC North team’s third straight title and the No. 1 seed in the NFC Playoffs.
Who can say if the jersey brings luck to Matt LaFleur’s team? Nonetheless, it’s a jersey that honors the Packers’ history that stretches back seven decades. It also has a very sympathetic color pattern that resonates with a lot of fans at Titletown. Green Bay’s first home game is Sunday Night Football against the Chicago Bears in Week 2 on September 18.
