Follow along here throughout the night for all the latest in the second - and perhaps final - matchup between these two great quarterbacks. Rodgers (103.6) and Brady (97.6) also rank first and third, respectively, in National Football League history in career passer rating. Their coverage could be better, but they're disrupting things pretty effectively up front. However the disparity in rankings is seen more in points scored on offense, where the Patriots are ranked fourth in the league and the Packers are ranked 13th. Explosiveness and an ability to make moves help him gain extra yards after a catch.
Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown to get more balls thrown their way. TE Jimmy Graham caught two passes for 21 yards, and WR Randall Cobb added three catches for 15. It's doubtful Green Bay is giving up as it has Aaron Rodgers and when you have Rodgers, you always have a chance.
Luckily for the Patriots, the AFC East is bad again. They have three players on D with at least four sacks this year, something that will bode well coming into today, trying to pressure Brady. The yards per game difference (Brady 261.9, Rodgers 261.4) is negligible, but Rodgers has edge in completion percentage (64.9 to 64) and touchdowns per game (2.1 to 1.9).
Green Bay (3-3-1) is looking at lot like they did last season when they were mired in mediocrity at the midpoint. The Patriots get decent pressure on the next snap, but Rodgers is able to dance in the pocket and find Jimmy Graham wide open in the flat for another first. They settle for a field goal on the first drive that stalls at the 11. Gronkowski is sitting for the second time in three games, this time with an ankle and back issue. Stephon Gilmore breaks up a pass intended for Davante Adams in the end zone.
I like the value in taking Aaron Rodgers to shine, and context matters right now: at 3-3-1, Rodgers and the Pack are fighting for their playoff lives.

Rob Gronkowski played on Monday night against the Buffalo Bills, but it really didn't look like the Gronk we've seen over the years.
It goes to show just how much Rodgers has been carrying the Packers on his back since becoming the team's starting quarterback in 2008 and how much of a hard task it has been for him.
