Patriots win sixth straight, best Packers in second Brady-Rodgers meeting

"It (the no huddle) is a good weapon for us", Brady said.

Green Bay answered with a 2-yard Rodgers pass to Davante Adams to help tie it at 10 with 4:49 left in the second quarter, capping a 13-play, 79-yard drive. New England won without tight end Rob Gronkowski, running back Sony Michel and guard Shaq Mason.

The Patriots opened the game in a hurry-up offense, methodically scoring a TD on a James White run as Brady started out 5-of-6 passing.

Packers defense makes a goal-line stand from the 1-yard line in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup against the Patriots. The Patriots ripped off 14 points in a matter of minutes to secure the victory, 31-17, and send the visitors spiraling further from the NFC pedestal they had hoped to command.

Next up for Rodgers and Green Bay is a home game against the Miami Dolphins next Sunday evening. That set up a White rushing touchdown that put the Patriots ahead 24-17 in the fourth quarter.

That said, it's foolish to label Brady "a system quarterback" - is anyone actually still doing that? - and the reality is him and head coach Bill Belichick have formed a flawless tandem in New England.

"'They took some chances, we took some chances, we came out ahead".

They then play at the Seahawks and Vikings - two crucial games if the Packers are to mount an unlikely late playoff challenge.

Rookie wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling replaced Allison as the No. 3 receiver against the Patriots, and caught three passes for 101 yards. He could also catch passes out of the backfield, to the tune of three receptions for 18 yards while with the Patriots.

The Packers went three-and-out on their next series, but the defense looked like it had held firm, forcing Brady to six straight incomplete passes and sacking him on third-and-10. Was it a good call?

The Packers failed to get a first down, then Brady hit Gordon inside the 40; he shook off cornerback Tramon Williams before dashing into the end zone. Jones had 140 touches in his first 17 National Football League games and had not fumbled once.

On special teams, there was Ty Montgomery's fumble on the kickoff return against the Rams and two penalties against the Patriots.

The Patriots finally took advantage.

"So we'll go in and watch the film tomorrow and make our corrections and adjustments".

New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman expressed his support for the victims of a Pittsburgh synagogue shooting while wearing an Israeli baseball cap when he spoke to reporters after Sunday night's game.
