Patriots defense rose to challenge of Aaron Rodgers

Cowherd's argument is flawed, namely because Rodgers played well Sunday night - perhaps even better than Brady - and New England's victory stemmed more from Green Bay's mistakes and the Patriots' overall game plan, both offensively and defensively. "I probably could have a play to get him a touchdown, but you live and learn".

Nearly 48 hours later, he would find himself without a team after the Green Bay Packers released him from the roster. He had one catch for 14 yards in returning against the Rams last week, then injured his groin this week in practice. That set up Edelman's trick pass to White and a go-ahead touchdown. "It was one of those plays you think about all the time". He said, "I'm just letting the people out in Pittsburgh know I'm thinking about them". After failing four times to score and take a lead from Green Bay's 1, the offense had sputtered.

The Packers went three-and-out on their next series, but the defense looked like it had held firm, forcing Brady to six straight incomplete passes and sacking him on third-and-10. They ended a 22-minute scoring drought as White rumbled in from one yard out to make it 24-17, Patriots.

Rough week for Jermaine Whitehead.

Rookie wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling replaced Allison as the No. 3 receiver against the Patriots, and caught three passes for 101 yards.


The frustration from Rodgers and McCarthy has reach a boiling point and it doesn't help that McCarthy's offense has quite possibly reached a stalemate, lacking ingenuity and energy.

The Patriots' defense tightened on Green Bay's next drive. His team's defense is suspect and inconsistent. "We're hurting ourselves with negative yardage plays and missed throws and turnovers at the wrong time, not being on the same page too many times".

Spriggs, a second-round pick of the Packers in 2016, replaced Bulaga to start Green Bay's third offensive series and came back out for the fourth series. "And it's happening in the worst times". "Obviously we have a lot of trust in him, when he has his hands on the ball, good things are going to happen".

Rodgers will turn 35 next month.

After a breakout rushing performance in Sunday night's win against the Packers, wideout Cordarrelle Patterson is forever entrenched among the list of Patriots players who have filled unconventional roles under coach Bill Belichick. It's really hard to believe that an 8-7-1 team would be good enough to make the playoffs in the NFC. Rodgers was pressured on 5 of 10 fourth-quarter dropbacks, including his last three of the game.
