Aaron Rodgers' record on the road across his National Football League career is unbelievable

Aaron Rodgers will keep the Packers in the game, against anyone, anywhere, but the Patriots get a late touchdown to cover.Take the Patriots and the points.

The Patriots hit another big play, from Brady to Josh Gordon for a 55-yard touchdown, to put the Packers away.

Still 7-3 Patriots, but Aaron Rodgers has the ball back with a chance to take the lead.

The Green Bay Packers travel to New England for a battle with the Patriots this weekend as they look to bounce back from their letdown against the Los Angeles Rams.

Here are 10 quick thoughts on the contest.

"Of course, but tell me did we get Green Bay-New England?"

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 pass rush in particular deserves a great deal of credit for forcing a few poor throws.

"I love watching him play", Brady said of Rodgers. He looked great, totaling 61 yards on 11 carries.

Before he was hurt in Week 4, Allison had emerged as the Packers' best deep threat. While he may run straight up, he runs very hard. The real weapon on this drive was James White, who made three catches for 27 yards and ran in the touchdown from eight yards out. Davante Adams' short TD grab in the second quarter knotted the game at 10, and tight end Jimmy Graham's 15-yard score on the first possession of the second half tied things at 17.

The Packers have three time outs with less than two minutes left in the half.

Allison was a key contributor in the passing game before missing two weeks with a hamstring issue. The two went shot-for-shot in a game that was tied heading into the fourth quarter.

That was when Ty Montgomery intervened by attempting to return the ensuing kickoff out of the end zone, an ill-fated decision that led to a fumble (the Rams' Ramik Wilson forced and recovered it) and his dismissal two days later when he was traded to Baltimore in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick in 2020.

Rodgers and the Packers won the only other showdown, 26-21 at Green Bay in 2014. Going into the game he was more of a situational defensive tackle, but he got a lot of reps on early downs Sunday night. The Carolina Panthers are already 6-2 and only in second place of the NFC South. Teams like the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles (or Washington Redskins) and Seattle Seahawks might be factors in the wild-card race too. Dorsett has been phased out to the No. 4 or 5 option and saw very liming snaps.
