Packers vs. Patriots Sunday Night Football: Packers Opens Game With Onside Kick
The Green Bay Packers have just won the coin toss and elected to kick to Tom Brady and the Patriots offense. It was a puzzling decision for about two seconds.
That was until Green Bay pulled a New Orleans Saints and executed a surprise onside kick. They caught the Patriots completely off-guard and recovered the kick. Now Green Bay gets the first offensive posession of the game, takes a possession away from Brady and doesn't have to give New England the first drive of the second half.
Now the Packers give their offense a short field to work with and have the chance to take some pressure off their defense. A halfway decent drive should give Green Bay a field goal and help keep Matt Flynn comfortable. A good drive could result in a touchdown and put the Patriots in the hole early.
At the very least it puts extra pressure on the Patriots young defense. It should be interesting to see how they respond early.
