Up-and-down Packers looking to right themselves vs. Patriots

Davante Adams is having an outstanding season for Green Bay, but the Packers will be without breakout receiver Geronimo Allison on Sunday, who is out with an injury. The Green Bay defense was able to frustrate Brady for a good amount of the contest, but the Patriots quarterback was able to make a few big throws when he needed to, including a huge third down conversion to Phillip Dorsett in the fourth quarter. QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium, now is not the time to reflect on a fine first half.

Valdes-Scantling could draw another start against the Patriots with Allison listed as doubtful after injuring his groin in practice this week to go with an already sore hamstring. Something must change if they want to go back to the Super Bowl this year for the first time since the 2010 season. Foxboro has been friendly to the Patriots as they have won their last nine regular season contests at home. In seven games Gronkowski has 448 yards and one touchdown.

"But, I think we have things that we still need to work on and improve, (and) there are some things we do well and we have to keep doing those". The Patriots are 12th in the league for allowing points on defense, while the Packers aren't far off at 17th.

Edelman finished the game with 104 yards on nine receptions. Explosiveness and an ability to make moves help him gain extra yards after a catch.

Both teams are going to be looking to prove a point this week.

This game might be one of the most hyped up of the year, seen as the battle of the GOATs.

Q1, 3:41: Julian Edelman kick-starts another drive like he's done so many times with a 16-yard catch on the first play.

These teams possess two of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game of football, so the defenses will be tested greatly.

The Jets will see a different face running the offense on the other side, with Brock Osweiler getting the start for the Dolphins in place of the injured Ryan Tannehill.

The Packers came close to beating the undefeated Rams a week ago, but late breakdowns and a few key mistakes prevented that from happening. Aaron Rodgers finds Jordy Nelson in the end zone.

The Patriots (7-2) took an early lead thanks to a rushing touchdown from James White. He has 13 TDs in his last four games, the most in that type of span for Chicago since Sid Luckman in 1947.
