With the Patriots facing the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football, Michel seemed like he had a solid chance to play. Pre-game news updates will roll in until kickoff. And of course, that conversation has to focus on the greatest of all time debate.

The Packers most likely won't make the playoffs this season if they fail to win any games on the road due to the competitiveness of the NFC. However, the Patriots offense has been at its best when they can run the ball. "If that's how they decide to go about the game, remove (me) from the game, I'm still going to do my best to contribute as much as I can to this offense". Three snaps later, White was in the end zone, and the Patriots weren't threatened again. Devin McCourty gets in Rodgers' face on yet another third down, and Rodgers throws it nowhere near Equanimeous St. Patterson is a speed burner and the Packers must find a way to contain him both as a rusher and more importantly as a pass catcher. The running back finished with 12 carries for 31 yards and two touchdowns, while adding six catches on seven targets for 72 yards. The Patriots capitalized on the mistake with quarterback Tom Brady leading a drive downfield to take a 24-17 lead. Gilmore didn't get beat often, as usual. But the math gets pretty daunting. The offense scored quickly, and the defense bent but didn't break.

2014, however, while they are considered the greatest quarterbacks of the modern age and each guaranteed Hall of Famers, the Packers star has only been able to climb the mountain and win the Super Bowl once.

The Packers have played pretty well the past two weeks and have nothing to show for it. Brady and Rodgers are going to have an epic battle, and it is Aaron that will end up victorious.

It was a tie game entering the fourth quarter, but Green Bay lost momentum after tailback Aaron Jones fumbled.

Down 7-0 after the game's opening drive, the Packers tied it twice. Jonathan Jones nearly blocked the kick. The second was a 55-yard touchdown reception from Josh Gordon. For Gronkowski, perhaps the team is looking at the big picture and is trying to do what it can to have him as healthy as possible for the stretch run.

"It's a tough stretch, but we have an opportunity to take a big chunk of confidence if we can go up there and play our best game". Time to see what Aaron Rodgers can do to respond.

Forget about quick strikes, these two QBs are especially lethal at taking chunks at a time, bludgeoning defenses bit-by-bit.
