Tom Brady is the GOAT. Don't let anyone try to tell you otherwise.

Aaron Rodgers is one of the more physically gifted quarterbacks to ever play the game and a future Hall of Famer in his own right.

The two elite passers will face off Sunday night in a true primetime battle, just the second meeting of their impressive NFL careers.

The Boston Globe breaks down all that goes into the matchup of the two legendary quarterbacks. The Globe looks back at Devin McCourty’s interception return for a touchdown in Buffalo, declaring that his teammates knew that the safety still had the blazing speed he displayed on the game-clinching play. The Globe also has Patriots wide receivers coach Chad O’Shea praising the “great job” Josh Gordon has done in his short time in New England. The Globe looks at what the NFL’s NextGen stats say about the Patriots midway through the season. The Globe’s film study says Kyle Van Noy gave the Patriots defense a charge in Buffalo. The Globe has Sony Michel, Dont’a Hightower and Marcus Cannon all returning to practice for New England.
