Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

However, he'll be needed more than ever against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Gronkowski won't even make an appearance on "Sunday Night Football" against the Green Bay Packers.

In 2014, Adams took advantage of more looks when the Patriots made a decision to focus on then-top Packers wideout Jordy Nelson. He had one catch for 14 yards in returning against the Rams last week, then injured his groin this week in practice. Brady and Rodgers are going to have an epic battle, and it is Aaron that will end up victorious. Adams has had at least 132 yards receiving in his last three games. "I think he can do it all from the wide receiver position and we're expecting a lot of attention by the Patriots' secondary", Coach Mike McCarthy said. That has been the case most of this season.

After barely playing during the first three games of the season, the rookie has seen more and more playing time as the season has gone on.

If you can't watch live, "Hulu with Live TV" also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to "Enhanced Cloud DVR", which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

JK Scott will punt tonight for the Packers, who added a second punter - Drew Kaser - on Saturday because Scott's wife is due to have a baby any day now. Cobb is questionable again with a hamstring injury but seems to be improving.

First Quarter Thoughts: Overall, a great first quarter for the Patriots. He's thrown for 2,273 yards, 13 TD's, and only one interception.

- Packers win the coin toss. They enter this game ranked 27 in the league in passing yards allowed and have registered only 12 sacks in eight games which places them 29. James White rushes for 8 yards to score on the opening drive.

In a straight-up, pick'em format, their proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and '17, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Brady is as good as any quarterback in the game at dissecting the weaknesses of a defense, so the Packers can't afford many breakdowns. He is listed as dealing with ankle and back injuries on the Patriots' injury report.
