Packers Vs. Patriots: Packers Onside Kick Catches Patriots By Surprise

A surprise onside kick to open the game took the Patriots by surprise, and the Packers will start with the ball and a short field.

Talk about a gutsy call. Packers coach Mike McCarthy is clearly not willing to play a passive game against the Patriots, who can expect to see just about everyone’s best shot as the season winds down.

Matt Flynn, starting in place of the concussed Aaron Rodgers, will have a chance to show what he can do from the 37-yard line.
