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.

They matched their 13-3 record and NFC Championship appearance from the 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 a Vikings loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the same day.[2] 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 31-26 defeat to the eventual Super Bowl LV champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. Aaron Rodgers won his third NFL MVP at the NFL Honors for his performance in 2020.
