Patriots vs Packers report card: Grading New England's defense

Patriots vs Packers report card: Grading New England's defense

Aaron Rodgers took on Tom Brady on Sunday and impressed the New England Patriots staff, but he could not inspire victory. We feel like we had a good rush plan against him, and he escaped a couple of times and extended plays and then got out and threw the touchdown there on a scramble.

Nearly 48 hours later, he would find himself without a team after the Green Bay Packers released him from the roster. "I was a little mad that James didn't get in the end zone there or else I would have had a better stat line".

But the Patriots kept at it and over the final 24 minutes they allowed 94 yards, four first downs and, most importantly zero points on 20 plays.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers throws a strike to WR Valdes-Scantling for 26 yards.

White scored the go-ahead touchdown three plays later.

"They have a very good defense", he said.

The Patriots lead the Packers 10-3 in the second quarter. "We got some things going and then they adjusted".

■ The Patriots have had a long line of runnings backs who were adept at catching passes out of the backfield in the Belichick-Brady era: Danny Woodhead, Shane Vereen, Dion Lewis, and James White, to name a few.

Last week, White recommended taking the Packers (+9.5) against the Rams in L.A. The result: Rams 29, Packers 27, with a late fumble costing Green Bay a chance at the outright upset. His team's defense is suspect and inconsistent.

With the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers tied at 17-17 early in the fourth quarter, Edelman executed a trick play to perfection. "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". "And it's happening in the worst times". "Look, players want to play, players want to help their team, players want an opportunity to contribute, and we all know that you have to do some things maybe that are secondary or third or fourth on the list, at times, in order to do the things that you want to do".

Rodgers will turn 35 next month. Now the Packers get another shot at a road win on the opposite coast against the Patriots, who own a two-game AFC East lead by virtue of a five-game winning streak that started at the end of September. He also connected with Danny Amendola for a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs in the 2014 season. Rodgers was pressured on 5 of 10 fourth-quarter dropbacks, including his last three of the game.
