The New England Patriots are preparing to face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football, the final prime time game of the regular season for the Patriots (fingers crossed!). The Patriots will lose if they replicate last week’s performance against the Buffalo Bills, so Alec and Rich talk about what to expect from the New England offense.

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski had a lackluster showing and should bounce back with any semblance of a rushing attack, while a pair of receivers are the New England X-Factors.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Patriots passed their test against the Bills with flying colors, but let’s be serious- Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are, ahem, slightly better than Buffalo at producing on offense. Can Stephon Gilmore continue his strong season? Will Kyle Van Noy continue to step up? Should we panic about Jimmy Graham and the Patriots’ inability to defend tight ends?

Alec and Rich cover it all. This podcast is available in the iTunes store, Stitcher, TuneIn, BluBrry, Podcast Mirror and via RSS Feed. Please subscribe and comment on what you want to hear about in future podcasts!
