New England Patriots vs. Green Bay Packers score: Live updates, game stats, highlights for 'Sunday Night Football'

Undefeated Rams make splash at deadline trading for Fowler

They have five MVPs, six Super Bowl titles, 19 Pro Bowl selections and five first-team All-Pro honors between them.

The primary reason for that disparity is a substantial difference in the quality of supporting cast the two have played with over the course of their respective careers.

Patriots get a solid-enough start with a 35-yard return for Cordarrelle Patterson, and Tom Brady goes to work from there. The Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, find themselves in a place they are not accustomed to being in, third. For Michel, he seemed likely to play after speaking Friday in the locker room, but it seems like he needs one more week to recover from his knee injury suffered against the Bears.

The numbers, provided by Opta, help illustrate the impact Brady's history of superior supporting casts. Rodgers recognized the Cover-0 and connected with rookie receiver Marques Valdes-Scantling for a 51-yard gain.

What's even crazier, however, is that he has thrown 150 touchdowns to 46 interceptions in those 78 games and still has lost more than he has won. Aaron Rodgers has played like the all-time great QB he is, but it's not leading to any extra Packers wins. He also caught one pass for 7 yards.

New England extended their lead to 31-17 with a touchdown with about seven-and-a-half minutes left in the game.

Show will start at 6:45 Central Time.

Just like Brady and Rodgers. Brady has an astounding 55 game-winning drives, and Rodgers has 21.

New England has just three scores of 51.5 yards or more this year and two of those are from special teams and a defensive score. Aaron Rodgers shouldn't have much, if any, trouble generating offense against the Patriots defense.

Michel, who was the Patriots' first-round draft pick in 2018 out of Georgia, leads the team with 422 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns. Rodgers promised a playoff berth a year ago and it happened.

Packers.com reports Packers that Allison continues to recover from a groin/hamstring injury. Brown are developing into reliable depth options.

Brady, meanwhile, still has a favourite target in Julian Edelman but Gronkowski has consistently battled injuries and Josh Gordon does not appear fully fit. And for football fans in Wisconsin and New England, Sunday night has been starred on the calendar for a long time.
