They've been a great team for a long time, very well-coached team that executes really well under pressure.

Gordon capped off the Patriots' scoring with a 55-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the fourth quarter - a play he said that the Patriots seemed to catch the Packers off balance.

The concern in this game for Green Bay fans is going to be some of the trade activity the team recently had.

The Packers go on a 13-play, 79-yard drive that takes six minutes and 48 seconds. "If you just look at where they were at, they were driving the ball and getting into the red area".

Receiver Randall Cobb, who was listed as questionable, is active and will play. That's not something we ever say about the Patriots with Brady, though that says more about the two organizations than the quarterbacks. Time to see what Aaron Rodgers can do to respond. So, how many ways can we find a way to get him the ball? Safety Jermaine Whitehead was also tossed for retaliating against Patriots center David Andrews. His speed can make any mistake in coverage costly.

Not a lot went right in this game for the Packers, but one thing that did stand out was how well most of the rookies, on all different areas of the field, were able to perform. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have been good, but they will need to be great this week. Their coverage could be better, but they're disrupting things pretty effectively up front. The Packers are 0-4 on the road this season.

Packers: WR Geronimo Allison was inactive for the Packers with a groin injury. So the rookie punter went about his business in punting five times for a net average of 42.0 yards in a strong performance against the Patriots.

The play sparked memories of the double pass in which Edelman connected with Danny Amendola on a 51-yard touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional round of the playoffs on January 11, 2015.

In 2014, Adams took advantage of more looks when the Patriots chose to focus on then-top Packers wideout Jordy Nelson.

In the four games that he has played since returning to the Patriots, Edelman has caught 25 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns. Green Bay and New England only meet about once every four years.

Trick play gets the Patriots some major yards!

New England receiver Julian Edelman hit White on a 37-yard catch-and-run to set up White's second score, a 1-yard run.

The Green Bay Packers travel to New England for a battle with the Patriots this weekend as they look to bounce back from their letdown against the Los Angeles Rams. They have struggled to do so without Sony Michel in the lineup.

Green Bay has the No. 12-ranked defense in the National Football League but will have its hands full with Brady and Patriots on Sunday night.

Yes, we're riding with the Packers in this game.

Feeling natural: The domino effect of Tuesday's trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Washington saw Tramon Williams play nearly entirely at safety against the Patriots. Williams, according to ESPN stats, has 6 tackles on the night, 5 of which were solo.

He was a key contributor in the passing game before missing two weeks with a hamstring injury.

The test for the Packers is doubly hard because of the Patriots' dominance at home.
