Much like last week, the Packers' defense did nearly enough to win the game. No one is going to miss Ty Montgomery, but the got rid of one of their better defenders in Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. It will be a showcase of the two quarterbacks displaying why they carry the label G.O.A.T.
Patriots will test TE Rob Gronkowski (back) and RB Sony Michel (knee) pregame, but there is concern about whether both players listed as questionable will be able to play tonight vs Packers, per sources.
"I haven't been consistent, and we haven't been clicking the way we expect to click", Aaron Rodgers stated at the post-game press conference.
The Packers drive ends with a sack of Aaron Rodgers. And we talk about that all the time - if we can get ball-carriers from behind by the D-linemen, the linebackers, it forces turnovers. Let's just hope it's not the last time they share an National Football League field. Safety Jermaine Whitehead was also tossed for retaliating against Patriots center David Andrews. "I just took advantage of my opportunities".
As far as offense goes, this game will have plenty of it. Brady is as good as any quarterback in the game at dissecting the weaknesses of a defense, so the Packers can't afford many breakdowns. His breakup put the ball back in Green Bay's hands, but unfortunately, they could not come up with anything. The Packers are 0-4 on the road this season. Of course, Green Bay was 8-3 when they beat the Pats that season.
Catching on: Much like Davante Adams did as a rookie against the Patriots in 2014, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling stepped up and shined in the No. 3 role Sunday.
Gordon has 396 receiving yards through six games with the Patriots.
"We need it. This is a great team".
The Packers struggled in so many different areas Sunday night it was frustrating to watch at times.
Brady went 22-for-35 with 294 yards and a touchdown, while Rodgers finished 24-for-43 with 259 yards and two touchdowns.
New England also capitalized on a pair of long flea-flicker passes to set up scores.
Trick play gets the Patriots some major yards!
Allison injured his groin during Thursday's practice, putting his availability in doubt for Sunday's matchup against the New England Patriots. None of them returned into the lineup for the Packers as well.
Tied at 17 apiece, Green Bay appeared to be marching to a lead early in the fourth when Patriots defensive tackle Lawrence Guy forced a fumble out of running back Aaron Jones to turn possession around. "Hopefully, it all comes together as we keep progressing and playing games".
The Patriots start with a breakneck pace by running 10 plays in 3:20 and score the first touchdown of the game.
Allison was a key contributor in the passing game before missing two weeks with a hamstring issue. Patriots punt. Packers take over at their 21.
