BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Patriots and Packers will square off in Foxborough Sunday night, and it's a biggie.

Pats have won their last five by an average of 15 points, while the Pack's fighting for the top spot in their division. But more than that, two all-time QBs will start head-to-head for just the second time.

Aaron Rodgers got the better of Tom Brady, 26-21, when they met in Week 13 of the 2014 season in Green Bay.

New England's defense put the game on ice with an 85-yard pick six by Devin McCourty--the first touchdown of his nine-year career.

Brady's often said he's inspired by his counterpart. What does Aaron Rodgers think of that?

"The feeling is mutual," Rodgers said. "As a young player, I watched a ton of his film. I had a great guy to watch every single day in Brett Favre, but Tommy's been at the top of his game for a long, long time, so I watched most of the snaps from the '07 season. I've always been a big fan of his, just the stuff he does on the field is phenomenal--and then to see him as he's gotten older in his career, continue to reinvent himself year after year and play at a high level every single season, obviously winning championships, he's a phenomenal player. He's a pioneer as far as taking care of his body and rewriting the longevity books for players of his caliber. It's been really impressive to watch, and anytime I get a chance, whether he's on Thursday night, Sunday night, Monday night, I'm for sure tuning in."
