Tom Brady seems encouraged by Patriots offense in win over Packers

Undefeated Rams make splash at deadline trading for Fowler

Rodgers-Brady a spicy prime-time matchup in NFL's Week 9

In only the second-ever meeting of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, Brady and the New England Patriots won their sixth-straight game, 31-17 over the Green Bay Packers.

The Patriots rebounded in swift, dramatic and game-altering fashion.

All he would say about the Patriots and their uptempo offense and trick plays was: " seemed to work pretty good for them". On the Patriots next possession, Brady connected with Josh Gordon for a 55-yard TD.

The stakes weren't quite as high this time but the Patriots' offense needed a similar spark. At 3-4-1 they're in danger of missing the playoffs.

After hosting Miami (5-4), Green Bay goes back on the road to face Seattle (4-4) and Minnesota.

Brady completed four passes in a row before tossing it back to Edelman, who threw across the field to White. He waited for a caravan of blockers to establish their position and tossed a flawless spiral across the field to White, who had a clear path down the sideline until Antonio Morrison tripped him up inside the 2.

Edelman said it was a "big hit to the community". We got down there and couldn't get the ball in the end zone with two plays inside the 1-yard line. If anything, one could argue New England's win serves as additional evidence for those looking to minimize Brady's accomplishments.

To my surprise, the Patriots were not one of his choices because, he said, they don't have a great defense. I'm just letting them know: "I'm behind you and I'm supporting (you)". They fought the Rams hard and led in the fourth quarter before the Rams took the lead and since-traded Ty Montgomery fumbled away Green Bay's last chance. The Packers moved the ball on their first drive but stalled in the red zone, including a freakish screen call on third-and-goal from the New England 14-yard line. With his right hand, the veteran defensive lineman hammered at the ball, dislodging it. Patriots DT Lawrence Guy knocked the ball loose, and Stephon Gilmore recovered it in what was becoming a unusual defensive showdown all of a sudden.

Guy said they're always trying to pop the ball loose. You're talking about a lot of great, great, great quarterbacks, great players that he's ahead of. They ended a 22-minute scoring drought as White rumbled in from one yard out to make it 24-17, Patriots. Former Pats linebacker Mike Vrabel is in his first year as Titans head coach, and in many ways he embodies the versatility Belichick asks of his players so often.
