If there is one game that football fans are going to make sure they watch this season, it is this one. The chance to see two of the greatest quarterbacks in the modern era of the game on the field is definitely must-see TV.
Rodgers nearly engineered an incredible comeback against the Los Angeles Rams last week. With how they were moving the ball in the fourth quarter, had Tim Montgomery not fumbled the ball on the final during that fateful kick return, Rodgers might have pulled off the comeback.
But against the Patriots, he may not have to worry about being in that kind of situation.
As usual, the Packers offence is one of the better ones in the league. They are always one of the top passing teams, and there have been signs of life in the running game lately.
However, when it comes to New England’s defence, the signs of life have been hard to see. They have played well in spurts and looked good during games. But overall, they have not played well this season.
Tom Brady, on the other hand, is going to be facing a decent defence.
So—who’s going to win?
The stats and tendencies for both teams this season make a more compelling argument for a Packers win. But whenever that seems to be the case for a Patriots game, Brady and Bill Belichick figure out how to get a top-notch performance out of the team.
Take the Patriots (-275) to win over the Packers (+235) but for Green Bay to win against the spread (+7). As for the over/under—take the over (57.5).
