There is no doubt that both these teams excel in the passing games on offense, but the winner may be the team who has the better running game.
The Packers have the 24th-ranked rushing attack in the NFL, averaging less then 100 yards a game. Their leading rusher is Brandon Jackson, who has 546 rushing yards and three touchdowns, but is only averaging 3.8 yards per carry. They will be up against a very stout run defense who has already held backs such as Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice and Matt Forte in check.
The Patriots come into the game with the 15th-ranked rushing offence, averaging 112.5 yards per game. The attack is led by a former undrafted rookie free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Green-Ellis has rushed for 786 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Green-Ellis is backed up by another free agent pickup Danny Woodhead, who has 711 total yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving). They will be up against the 19th-ranked run defence in the Packers, but they will be missing starting defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins.
