Packers vs. Patriots Sunday Night Football: Surprising Packers Lead at Halftime
This was supposed to be a cake walk. The Patriots haven't lost in Gillette Stadium with Tom Brady starting the game since 2006. New England is the hottest team in the NFL, coming off wins over the New York Jets and Chicago bears in emphatic fashion. The Green Bay Packers came to town without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Add it all together and you've got the making of a regular Boston massacre.
The Packers didn't get the memo and they actually lead the game at halftime.
New England closed the first half with some nice momentum though. Set up by Dan Connolly's, yes Dan Connolly's, spectacular kickoff return, Tom Brady and the offense got the ball at the Green Bay four-yard line. Three plays later Brady threw a touchdown pass to tight end Aaron Hernandez to bring New England within three points.
The Packers get the ball to start the second half so the Patriots still have an uphill battle ahead of them, but at least for the moment they've quelled Green Bay's momentum.
