New England Patriots: Ranking the top five matchups of the season
By Laith Malhas
1) PATRIOTS @ PACKERS
The game we all have been waiting for is finally scheduled. These two franchises do not play each other as frequently as fans would prefer, which makes this matchup even more exciting.
It is not every day that we get to see the top two quarterbacks in the league go head-to-head, Aaron Rodgers against Tom Brady will not disappoint.
The Patriots visited Greenbay back in 2014 for a regular season game that ended in a shootout between the two future Hall of Famers.
Rodgers was able to lead his team to a 26-21 win over the Patriots as time winded down in the fourth with Brady unable to get back on the field to counter-attack.
The victory gave Rodgers a win in his first meeting against Brady which will be revisited in week nine of the upcoming NFL season.
Due to his ultra-competitive nature, Brady will seek this opportunity to defeat the Packers in Foxborough and send a clear message that he still is the best player at his position.
This clash has the potential to be one of the best games of the season given the fact that it pits Brady versus Rodgers, as well as Bill Belichick against Mike McCarthy, two head coaches that are cerebral and well prepared in all three phases of the game.
