The 2011 St. Louis Rams season was the team's 74th season in the National Football League, the 17th overall in St. Louis and the third under head coach Steve Spagnuolo. The Rams failed to improve on their 7–9 record from 2010, and one day after the season finale, head coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney were fired from the team. The team secured the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Rams' offense was among the worst in the league in 2011. They scored only 193 points (12.1 points per game), last in the league, and 11th-fewest all-time for a 16-game season. Their −214 point differential was last in the league.Football Outsiders ranked St. Louis the worst team in the league, per play, in 2011. The 2012 Football Outsiders Almanac, however, noted that the Rams went from the league's easiest schedule in 2010 to the league's hardest schedule in 2011.With their 2-14 record, the Rams capped a stretch from 2007 to 2011 in which they went 15-65, which was at the time the worst 5-year span in NFL history. This mark has since been matched by the Cleveland Browns of 2013 to 2017.2016 Los Angeles Rams season
The 2016 Los Angeles Rams season was the franchise's 79th season in the National Football League and the fifth and final under head coach Jeff Fisher. It was the franchise's 50th season in the Greater Los Angeles Area and the first since 1994. The team returned to Los Angeles after 21 seasons in St. Louis. The Rams decided from 2016-2019 to return to wearing white uniforms at home in LA as a nod to Fearsome Foursome era. In Week 15 against their NFC West Rival the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams used white horns on their helmet just for the one game only, a move which would be repeated for the entire following season.
The 2016 season saw the Rams attempting to improve upon their 7–9 record from 2015. After a surprising 3–1 start, the Rams would massively struggle in the second half, going 1–11 in their final 12 games, en route to a 4–12 record. The Rams also went 1–6 at home in 2016, their worst home record since going 0–8 at home in their 1–15 2009 season. The Rams also missed the playoffs for the 12th straight season, the third longest current streak in the NFL. Only the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns had longer postseason droughts. The franchise also clinched its 13th straight losing season, which as of 2017 was the longest current streak in the NFL. The Rams were also the only team to lose to the San Francisco 49ers in 2016, as both wins for the 49ers were against the Rams.
On December 12, 2016, Fisher was fired after a 42-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons that dropped the Rams to 4-9 and clinched their 10th straight losing season. John Fassel was named interim head coach and went winless over the final three games.2017 Green Bay Packers season
The 2017 Green Bay Packers season was their 99th season overall, 97th season in the National Football League, and the 12th under head coach Mike McCarthy. After reaching the NFC Championship Game in the previous season, the Packers failed to improve a 10–6 record from 2016 and were eliminated from postseason contention after Week 15, making this the first time since 2008 that they failed to make the playoffs. After a 4-1 start, the Packers lost starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a collarbone injury during the week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and went on to lose 8 of the 11 remaining games. A loss to the Lions in week 17 secured the Packers’ first losing season since 2008.
The Packers' opponents in this season were almost identical to that of their 2005 season in which the team finished 4-12; this season the Packers faced the Seattle Seahawks, and teams from the NFC South & AFC North. The lone difference between these two seasons was that the team faced the Dallas Cowboys, replacing the Philadelphia Eagles, as the Cowboys won the NFC East in 2016.2018 Green Bay Packers season
The 2018 season was the Green Bay Packers' 98th season in the National Football League, their 100th overall and their 13th and final season under head coach Mike McCarthy. After missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers to injury, the Packers were aiming to improve their 7–9 record from last season but finished with a 6–9–1 record.
For the first time since 2007, Jordy Nelson did not play for the Packers as he signed with the Oakland Raiders via free agency during the offseason.
On January 7, 2018, Brian Gutekunst was named the new general manager, after Ted Thompson took over as the senior advisor to football operations.On December 2, 2018, after a 4–7–1 start, Mike McCarthy was fired hours after the Packer's Week 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals and Joe Philbin was named as the interim head coach. After a loss to the Chicago Bears in week 15, the Packers were eliminated from the postseason. This was the first time the Packers missed the postseason back to back years since 2005 to 2006, which were also the first two seasons of the Aaron Rodgers era and the beginning of the Rodgers/McCarthy era. This was also the first time the Packers suffered from back to back losing seasons since 1990 to 1991.2019 Green Bay Packers season
The 2019 season will be the Green Bay Packers' upcoming 99th season in the National Football League, their 101st overall and their first under new head coach Matt LaFleur. After suffering back-to-back losing seasons in for the first time since 1990–91 and missing the playoffs back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2005–06, the Packers will look to improve on their 6–9–1 record from last year, and attempt to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.Eric Stevens

An H-back is an offensive position in American football. The H-back lines up similarly to a tight end, but is "set back" from the line of scrimmage, and is thus counted as one of the four "backs" in the offensive formation. The H-back, while similar in name, should not be confused with "halfback" or "running back", which are used to denote a separate, primary ball-carrying backfield position. The position was made notable in the National Football League (NFL) by the Washington Redskins under head coach Joe Gibbs, who ran a two tight end system. The position was named F-back when used later in Norv Turner's offensive system. The position is similar to that of a slotback.Jared Cook
