Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots: 5 matchups to watch

Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots: 5 matchups to watch

He averaged 5.5 yards per carry, and entered the game as the running back after James White went down with an injury that slowed him down.

Before he was hurt in Week 4, Allison had emerged as the Packers' best deep threat. It will be a showcase of the two quarterbacks displaying why they carry the label G.O.A.T. The play calling was just for yet another week, questionable at times. That's not something we ever say about the Patriots with Brady, though that says more about the two organizations than the quarterbacks. It culminated on third down when Adrian Clayborn and Trey Flowers dropped Rodgers for a 9-yard sack and forcing a punt. But, I need to keep feeding Davante [Adams] in those clutch situations.

Still, the Patriots rightfully remain wary of the three-time All-Pro, two-time NFL MVP and one-time Super Bowl champion who continues to excel at ball security despite his freewheeling ways with one interception and one lost fumble. His speed can make any mistake in coverage costly.

As far as offense goes, this game will have plenty of it. Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks to play the game as well and the New England defense has struggled against the pass. Their coverage could be better, but they're disrupting things pretty effectively up front. Alexander, as he has proved week after week now, was just a consistent man in coverage for the Packers. They have won five in a row after starting the season 1-2.

With Geronimo Allison listed as doubtful, that opens the door for Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St.

The Patriots go on a 69-yard drive with six rushes-one for a touchdown.

Football fans will have to wait until Sunday night for the Packers and Patriots to kick off, but they could be treated to plenty of passing.




"We're 3-3-1", said Rodgers, who threw for 368 yards and two touchdowns in leading the Packers to a 26-21 victory at Lambeau Field in 2014 in what was the only start of his 14-year career against the Patriots.

And another hallmark of the win was that the Patriots did it without some of their key players. Green Bay vs. New England.

Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots gestures at the line of scrimmage in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers during a preseason game at Gillette Stadium on August 13, 2015 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Edelman should be able to feast on the middle of the Green Bay defense.

As mentioned before, MVS had another big game for the Packers. Gronkowski has 29 catches for 448 yards and a TD. "Just had to make a break on the ball and then try to finish the play after that".

With Ha Ha Clinton-Dix now in Washington, the Packers have a new defensive backfield.

The test for the Packers is doubly hard because of the Patriots' dominance at home.
