Patriots Vs. Packers: NFL Week 15 Game Capsules

Assuming Aaron Rodgers is cleared to play Sunday night, the Week 15 inter-conference matchup between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers has the makings of a potential classic. Then again, if the Patriots play like they have been in recent weeks, it may just be another blowout. A more likely scenario though is two great quarterbacks leading their teams in a hard-fought, closely contested affair between two first place teams.

Here's a few facts, figures and trends about the two teams' series history, notes on the matchup, and up-to-date season stats for both squads.
