Packers Vs. Patriots: New England's Offense Returns, Gives Patriots 31-27 Lead

It’s been a crazy up-and-down night so far, but for the most part the Patriots’ offense has been down. They had 24 points, but most of those came thanks to Dan Connolly’s return and Kyle Arrington’s interception.

Suddenly, though, things are looking up. Tom Brady isn’t under quite as much pressure, he’s finding some open men, and he’s putting points on the board. This time it was a beautiful pass to Deion Branch and some power (!) running from Danny Woodhead that set up the touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez.

The Pats need to hold the lead for seven minutes, but the Packers have been carving up their Brandon Spikes-less run defense, and Matt Flynn has been a surprise.
