Rodgers-Brady a spicy prime-time matchup in NFL's Week 9


Gronkowski missed the Bears game with a back injury but returned against the Bills and had three catches for 43 yards.

Expect the duel with Brady to bring out the best in Rodgers and expect the Pack to be in this game late.

How the offense rolls will depend on the availability of Gronkowski and running back Sony Michel. Brady will test Green Bay's young secondary on Sunday minus the veteran Clinton-Dix. Both quarterbacks should be able to move their offense down the field with relative ease, and the game will likely be decided by the defense that is able to make one last stop.

Los Angeles boasts the No. 2 overall offense with the top-ranked running game in the league, led by the versatile and electric Todd Gurley.

The Packers Patriots SNF game starts at 8:20 pm EST / 5:20 pm PST. He's run for 116 yards on 18 attempts but has been sacked 22 times.

If you had a few minutes with Bill Belichick, what would you ask him?

Meanwhile, the Patriots' defense hasn't exactly shut down the opposition.

Valdes-Scantling has especially taken advantage of more work in recent games with injuries to starters Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison.

Green Bay (3-3-1) is looking at lot like they did last season when they were mired in mediocrity at the midpoint. Devin McCourty gets in Rodgers' face on yet another third down, and Rodgers throws it nowhere near Equanimeous St.

Packers' first play from scrimmage is ... a six-yard run for Aaron Jones.

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

Sure, the Packers are hovering around the.500 mark and the Patriots don't appear as invincible as they sometimes - well, often - are.

It is always a highly anticipated matchup when two of the best quarterbacks in National Football League history have the privilege of playing a regular season game against one another. If they can limit him to less than 100 total yards (and not allow him to break a long kickoff or punt return), they should be able to force the Patriots earn their points with long, mistake-free drives.

Their lone matchup came in 2014 at Lambeau Field with Rodgers getting the better of his rival quarterback to steer the Packers to a 26-21 victory. Unfortunately, it's very hard to win on the road in New England and Brady will find a way to get the job done late.
