The Packers' struggles aside, there doesn't figure to be anything lackluster about this one: it's Brady vs. Rodgers, a matchup between two Hall of Fame-bound quarterbacks that, in and of itself, constitutes must-see TV. He is now listed as questionable for the Patriots' upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with an ankle injury. But Aaron Rodgers follows that up with a roll-out and a five-yard completion to Randall Cobb for a first down. On that occasion the Packers won 26-21. As Nora Princiotti of the Boston Globe revealed, the Patriots ruled Michel out for the game.
It began with a giveaway gift to the still-perfect Rams at Los Angeles and continues with three of next four being played at night and on the road, starting with one in New England.
"We need it. This is a great team". Aaron Rodgers will keep the Packers in the game, against anyone, anywhere, but the Patriots get a late touchdown to cover.Take the Patriots and the points.
Packers' first play from scrimmage is ... a six-yard run for Aaron Jones.

But while everyone is going to watch the quarterbacks in this one, the key is going to be the running backs for both. Just wait for the show to start.
Patterson ran for 11 yards on the final play of the period. He emerged from the halftime locker room with a wrap on his left leg, but he quickly shed it and returned to the game.
Much like the Kansas City game in Week 6, the Patriots defense played a tremendous first half against a high-powered offense. The rookie threw for 334 yards - still a personal best - but also had two interceptions. He's going to play without limitation, and with Geronimo Allison, that is crucial.
Pettine has stopped opposing running backs out of the backfield recently by treating them as receivers when choosing coverage matchups. At tight end, Jimmy Graham provides an elite option who has the potential to make a huge impact in the red zone. Tom Brady has passed for 16 touchdowns and seven interceptions, buoyed by running back James White, who has 55 receptions on 74 targets out of the backfield, seventh in the National Football League in catches regardless of position. He has 13 TDs in his last four games, the most in that type of span for Chicago since Sid Luckman in 1947.
