But Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have just one previous matchup heading into their game on Sunday night.

New England enters the game with a record of 6-2, while Green Bay comes in with a record of 3-3-1. All eyes will be on the quarterback matchup between Rodgers and Tom Brady, two guys who will go down in history as two of the best to ever play the position.New England is now laying -5 points to the visiting Packers. Rodgers (103.6) and Brady (97.6) also rank first and third, respectively, in National Football League history in career passer rating.

Last week against the Rams, the Pack ran the ball 19 times for 106 yards. "It'll be great to play him at home this time". After the first-round pick racked up 422 rushing yards and four touchdowns to start the year, there was plenty of optimism surrounding a possible return in the near future. "Coach McCarthy does a great job with this team, this organization".

Expect the Packers to show up on Sunday night with Rodgers having another phenomenal performance but it won't be enough to stop Brady and Patriots. They have lost those five games by an average of 11.0 points per game.

Rookie running back Sony Michel has been a boost to the run game, amassing 98 to 112 yards in three straight games.

But while everyone is going to watch the quarterbacks in this one, the key is going to be the running backs for both. He's run for 116 yards on 18 attempts but has been sacked 22 times. Russell Wilson has 11 TD throws and no interceptions in his last five home games, and will look to build off last week's performance when he became the first player in franchise history to post a ideal quarterback rating. Brady has also thrown more interceptions per game (0.6 to 0.5), though not by much. He's going to play without limitation, and with Geronimo Allison, that is crucial. They'll have to get past the Falcons first, though, and Atlanta has won each of the last five meetings. The Pats were willing to concede yards on the ground to Aaron Jones, but they made this night as hard as possible for Rodgers. Patterson's 5-yard touchdown run with 1:57 remaining in the second quarter was a notable play that came as top RB James White was flexing his left leg on the sideline, a result of coming up gimpy after a carry for a first down earlier on the drive. Unfortunately, it's very hard to win on the road in New England and Brady will find a way to get the job done late.
