The Green Bay Packers were 15-1 in the 2011 NFL regular season. One of the very best seasons in the storied history of a team which dates back to 1921 and has seen the franchise win 13 NFL championships and four Super Bowl titles.

No Green Bay team ever won 15 games in the regular season before. Obviously the Packers won the NFC North title and were the number one seed in the NFC playoffs in 2011.
