Foxboro, Mass. (WHBL-Learfield) - November 30, 2008, is the last time the New England Patriots lost a home game. Playing without starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers makes that huge task even harder for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. The Patriots have won 15 straight home games in Foxboro. New England carries an 11-2 record and five straight wins into the game against Green Bay. If the Jets lose today, a win over the Packers would make New England the AFC East Division Champion and give the Patriots a first-round bye in the NFL Playoffs. Patriot quarterback Tom Brady is red-hot, throwing 19 touchdown passes with no interceptions in his last eight games. As a result of the concussion sustained by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, coach Mike McCarthy and the Green Bay medical staff made the decision yesterday to keep Rodgers on the sidelines for the first time in 47 games, making a win over the Pats even harder. The team will go with Matt Flynn.
Coverage of the game on WHBL begins at 5pm.
