Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots: Preview and Prediction

The New England Patriots are a remarkable franchise.

The Green Bay Packers faced one of the best teams in the league for the second week in a row. The Packers are right in the thick of the NFC playoff hunt as they sit at 3-3-1 and now sit in third place in the NFC North.

Could this be that weekend? The Patriots defeated the Buffalo Bills on Monday night 25-6 to earn their fifth consecutive victory.

"He's going to look to guys who maybe he hasn't looked to as much coming up", Adams said.

In a straight-up, pick'em format, their proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and '17, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. O'Connor's book describes numerous instances where Belichick criticized Brady's play (with sarcasm and dry wit) in team meetings, in a way O'Connor says was reminiscent of Vince Lombardi's style with the Packers of the 1960s. Veteran defensive back Tramon Williams will move over to safety, so there could be no letdown. Green Bay is 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

The Packers also traded running back Ty Montgomery, although that made a little more sense considering Montgomery's performance and behavior in last week's gut-wrenching loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Nevertheless, they will not need the run game this week. Edelman should be able to feast on the middle of the Green Bay defense. His breakup put the ball back in Green Bay's hands, but unfortunately, they could not come up with anything.

The run-game is very minimal when Michel is not in the lineup, as White is the next leader with 204 yards, and nobody else is over 100. His status is still up in the air.


This game might be one of the most hyped up of the year, seen as the battle of the GOATs. The Patriots capitalized on the mistake with quarterback Tom Brady leading a drive downfield to take a 24-17 lead.

Brady goes deep to Josh Gordon and then pulls off a flea flicker to Edelman.

The longest was a 51-yard pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the third quarter that helped set up Rodgers' 15-yard TD pass to Jimmy Graham that tied the game at 17.

Rodgers did not play in that game as he was injured. I'm just mad that James didn't get in [the end zone]. Adams has had at least 132 yards receiving in his last three games.

"A lot of great players, a lot of weapons on all three sides of the ball, all three phases". Even when they're down to spare parts, they find a way. Every win is not going to be pretty.
