Bill Belichick happy he doesn’t face Packers and Aaron Rodgers often
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is happy he doesn’t have to face Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers too often, but he has to this Sunday. Last time the two teams met, Rodgers was dominant while leading his team to a 26-21 victory. Luckily for Belichick, the Patriots and Packers are in opposite conferences. This primetime matchup brought up some memories New England would like to forget.
“I mean, he’s a great player. He does everything well,” Belichick told NBC Sports. “He reads coverages well, very accurate throwing the ball. He’s got a great touch down the field, short, intermediate. They get a lot of catch-and-run plays. A lot of that is because of his great accuracy. He puts the ball right on the receiver and doesn’t have to break stride and can just keep running with it. Very mobile in the pocket, extends plays, really good vision down the field, uses the cadence well, is a good situational player. I mean, he’s one of the great quarterbacks in the National Football League; no question about it.”
As it stands, New England is a 5.5-point favorite at home against Green Bay this Sunday, according to BetOnline.ag. To place a bet on the game or any others, click here and use promo code CLUTCH50 for a 50% Welcome Bonus when you signup with BetOnline.ag!
Aaron Rodgers is facing some serious adversity this season. A knee injury he suffered in Week 1 has hampered his mobility and production. However, he continues to recover with each passing week. Bill Belichick knows that regardless of Rodgers’ health, he can give his team an opportunity to win against any opponent.
The Patriots and Packers don’t meet often, but when they do, it’s a real show. It’ll be a showdown between two of the NFL’s most exciting offenses.
