–Aaron Rodgers threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns, but it was his counterpart Tom Brady who got the upper hand in the win Sunday night in Foxboro.

New England then got a seven-play, 69 yard drive that led to a touchdown run from Cordarrelle Patterson to take a 17-10 advantage into the break. Rodgers connected with Jimmy Graham from 15 yards out on the first drive of the third quarter to tie it back up at 17, but a touchdown run from James White and a 55 yard pass from Brady to Josh Gordon – both in the fourth quarter –  put the game away and sent the Packers to their second straight defeat.
