Live 2018 NFL - Tom Brady of New England Patriots, Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay Packers


Tom Brady threw for 294 yards and a touchdown, and James White ran for two scores to lead the New England Patriots to a 31-17 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. But Aaron Rodgers draws just as much adulation in Cheesehead Nation, and while he doesn't stand toe to toe with Brady, is regarded as one of the best National Football League quarterbacks of the last ten years.

Back story: In front of the media early in the day on Wednesday, ahead of the big matchup at Gillette Stadium between the Patriots and Packers, Aaron Rodgers was asked about Brady playing so well at age 41. "I'm really looking forward to it".

"I mean, he's a great player", Belichick said of Rodgers.

Until this game, the Packers have had Aaron Rodgers and very few injuries.

Off are: Indianapolis (3-5), Arizona (2-6), New York Giants (1-7), Jacksonville (3-5), Philadelphia (4-4), Cincinnati (5-3).

Analysis: No Le'Veon Bell?

Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time and he's still proving it every week. "From pure quarterback play, I think this is definitely one you want to watch".

Despite the brilliance of the quarterbacks, the defenses and running games could be the difference in the outcome. Michel says he'd play on one leg for the Patriots, but maybe that wouldn't be the most productive.

Rodgers had 259 yards passing and two TDs.

This guy can not coach this team to do anything special this season.

A first-round pick out of California (24th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft, Rodgers has been able to stay in the same spot to this point in his career. Setting up that touchdown was a double pass from Edelman to White which almost went the distance, going 37 yards down the left sideline to give the Patriots first and goal at the 2.

Sam Darnold faces the Dolphins for the second time, looking for a much better outing than the one he had in Week 2 when NY lost 20-12.

NBC's national overnight rating of 15.6 is the best overnight rating for a primetime show on any network since March 2018 and is also up 63 percent from last year's Week 9 SNF game between Oakland and Miami. Newton threw TD passes of 19 yards to Curtis Samuel and 17 yards to Greg Olsen.

"I was excited for this game and to see both of those guys go head-to-head", Patterson said.

The Vikings wide receiver is tied with former Lions star Calvin Johnson (2012) with eight straight games of 100 or more yards receiving, the longest streak in National Football League history.

The second-year QB failed to throw for 300 or more yards after three straight while finishing with 222, but he had two touchdown passes and no interceptions.
