Template:Infobox NFL team season The 2020 season was the Green Bay Packers' 100th season in the National Football League, their 102nd overall and their second under head coach Matt LaFleur.

The Packers attempted to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2010 when former head coach Mike McCarthy operated the team. They matched their 13–3 record and NFC Championship appearance from last season, clinching home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs for the first time since 2011.

The Packers clinched both their second consecutive playoff berth and NFC North title following a Week 14 win against the Lions and an expected Vikings loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the same day.[1] With their victory over the Bears in Week 17, they earned home field advantage, a first round bye, and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. They would defeat the Los Angeles Rams 32–18 in the Divisional round, but their season ended after a 26–31 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. This marked Aaron Rodgers' fourth NFC Championship defeat with previous losses coming against the Seahawks, Falcons and 49ers.
