What to Know

Green Bay will square off against New England at 9:20 p.m. on Sunday. The odds don't look promising for Green Bay, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.

It was a hard-fought matchup, but Green Bay had to settle for a 29-27 loss against the Rams last week. Green Bay's defeat came about despite a quality game from Aaron Rodgers, who passed for 286 yards and 1 touchdown. Aaron Rodgers has made a name for himself in their last seven games, proving himself to be a reliable offensive weapon.

Meanwhile, New England brought a four-game winning streak into their contest against Buffalo last Monday; they left with a five-game streak. New England enjoyed a cozy 25-6 win over Buffalo.

New England's victory lifted them to 6-2 while Green Bay's defeat dropped them down to 3-3-1. Tom Brady will be someone to keep an eye on after he accumulated 324 passing yards last Monday. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Green Bay's defense can bottle him up.
