MATT LaFLEUR…In his fifth season as the Packers’ 15th head coach.
Enters his 15th season in the NFL, having previously served as an offensive coordinator for two seasons (Los Angeles Rams, 2017; Tennessee Titans, 2018), a quarterbacks coach for six seasons (Washington Redskins, 2010-13; Atlanta Falcons, 2015-16), and an offensive assistant for two seasons (Houston Texans, 2008-09). u In his first four seasons leading the Packers, has authored one of the greatest starts to a head-coaching career in NFL history. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, his 47 wins are the second most in league history by a head coach in his first four seasons in the NFL, trailing only George Seifert (52 in 1989-92). Green Bay’s 47-19 regular-season record since 2019 ranks No. 3 in the NFL and No. 1 in the NFC.

Became the first coach in NFL history to post 13-plus wins in three straight seasons and his 39 wins from 2019-21 passed Seifert (38) for the most wins by an NFL head coach in his first three seasons in the league (Elias). His 39 wins are also tied for the second most by a coach over any three-season span in league history, trailing only Andy Reid’s 40 wins with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2020-22 and Mike Ditka’s 40 wins with the Chicago Bears from 1985-87 (Elias). u Guided the Packers to a 27-6 record (.818) in the regular season from 2019-22 at Lambeau Field, the top home mark in the NFL since 2019. His .750 win percentage (18-6 record) against NFC North opponents in his first four seasons also ranks as the best in the history of the NFC North/Central (min. 10 games). u In his first season leading the Packers in 2019, became the first coach in club history to lead the team to the playoffs in his debut season. Also led the largest one-year win improvement in team history (plus-seven wins).

MIKE TOMLIN…In his 17th season as the Steelers’ 16th head coach.
Became the youngest head coach in NFL history to both coach in and win a Super Bowl when he led the Steelers to a 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII (36 years, 323 days), a record that held until it was eclipsed by Sean McVay in Super Bowl LVI (36 years, 20 days). By winning the Super Bowl in only his second season as a head coach, he also became the fastest to win a Super Bowl title in Steelers history. u Has led Pittsburgh to seven AFC North titles and has guided the Steelers to the playoffs 10 times, including two trips to the Super Bowl (XLIII and XLV). u Has won at least five home games in 15 of his first 16 years, including six in 2021. In his 16 seasons, he has never had a losing record.

THE PACKERS-STEELERS SERIES
Green Bay and Pittsburgh first met in 1933, and the Packers rattled off nine wins in a row (1933-46) to begin the regular-season series. The Packers currently hold the all-time regular-season series with a 19-16 advantage. u Green Bay won the lone postseason matchup between these franchises with a 31-25 victory over Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLV. u The Packers have scored 27-plus points in the last five matchups (2-3 record) against the Steelers.
