WR Geronimo Allison out for Packers against Patriots

That's not something we ever say about the Patriots with Brady, though that says more about the two organizations than the quarterbacks.

The Packers offense doesn't need to gain 150 yards rushing to win this game.

Rodgers lifted a Packers side that entered the playoffs as the NFC's sixth seed to Super Bowl glory in the 2010 campaign and his postseason appearances have followed the theme of him trying to elevate a team ill-prepared to contend at that level.

The Patriots young back almost surprised National Football League fans by getting on the field ahead of Week 8.

Green Bay has just two such scores on offense.

They again turned to receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to help carry the load in the backfield.

Rodgers is playing without a brace on the knee he injured in Week 1.

Meanwhile, the Patriots' defense hasn't exactly shut down the opposition. He'll face a Patriots defense that ranks 26th against the pass, allowing 289 yards per game through the air. The Patriots get decent pressure on the next snap, but Rodgers is able to dance in the pocket and find Jimmy Graham wide open in the flat for another first.

China having hard time over trade war: Donald Trump
The meal would give the two leaders more time to talk and create an atmosphere more conducive to negotiations, the sources said. The US this year has already imposed tariffs on $250 billion in trade with China.

It doesn't get much more exciting than Aaron Rodgers vs. Jason McCourty breaks up a deep pass intended for Marquez Valdes-Scantling on the next play. The two rookies have both showed improvement with each passing week. He has always been Brady's favorite and most trusted target and that is not going to change this evening.

The Packers are yet to win on the road in 2018, as they've lost games to the Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions, and the Los Angeles Rams. "This is as a big a challenge as we've had since I've been here, which is a long time now".

The secondary can't give up big plays and that means that players must adapt quickly to their new roles.

Down 7-0 after the game's opening drive, the Packers tied it twice.

Pettine has stopped opposing running backs out of the backfield recently by treating them as receivers when choosing coverage matchups. New England added another touchdown, via Josh Gordon, and left Gillette Stadium winners on a 31-17 scoreline. Brown to force the Packers' first punt of the night.

Expect the Pack to cover Patterson with a defensive back.

The Patriots went back to their hurry-up, no-huddle offense that got them a quick touchdown to start the game, and this time they threw in a backbreaking trick play. They have won five in a row after starting the season 1-2.

"It's very frustrating", said quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose duel with another all-time great in Tom Brady did not produce the drama expected. Fortunately, it does seem as though he's getting close and could be back sooner than later.
