Greg's Prediction: Patriots 31 Packers 13

While the Packers have a very tough overall team, I doubt that they can match the Patriots offense with Matt Flynn at the helm. The Packers do have a strong defense that can stop the run, but we've seen BenJarvus Green-Ellis have success against tough run defenses such as the Steelers in the past. Ultimately, I think the Patriots out-physical the Packers, have a solid overall day, maybe get a defensive/special teams touchdown, and come out with a victory.
