The Patriots squared off against the Green Bay Packers tonight and came out with the victory. The final score was 31-14. This game was a tale of the Packers hanging on as long as they could but the truth is, that it is really difficult to hang with the Patriots for all four quarters. Its possible to hang with the Patriots for a quarter or two, maybe even three but to hang with the Patriots for all 60 minutes is nearly impossible. Check Tom Brady's record for the accuracy of my last statement.
Tom Brady was 22-35 with 294 yards and a touchdown. Cordarrelle Patterson led the team in rushing with 61 yards on 11 carries and a rushing touchdown, while Josh Gordon had his best game as a Patriot with 130 receiving yards on five catches and a touchdown. The Patriots defense looked pretty good tonight and held Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense to 14 points. The Defense also posted two sacks and forced a late fumble. Not to mention Sony Michel, Rob Gronkowski, and Shaq Mason were missing tonight due to injuries.
Aaron Rodgers went 24-42 for 259 yards and also threw for 2 touchdowns. Aaron Jones rushed the ball 14 times for 76 yards and Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the team in receiving with 101 yards on three receptions.
UPDATE: Tom Brady is now ONE yard shy of being a 1000 yard career rusher.
