Coming off the onside kick, the Packers ground their way downfield with short gain after short gain, chewing up six minutes of clock. As they have so often in the past, though, the defense bent but did not break, as Eric Moore came flying into the backfield on 2nd down in the red zone to pick up a big sack, and hold the Packers to a field goal.
Eric Moore has been a surprise since the Pats picked him up earlier this month. Tonight’s early sack comes after a strong performance against the Bears where he picked up a sack and forced a fumble.
The Packers kick it long, and the Patriots will start on the 26-yard line.
