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.

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."
