WR Geronimo Allison out for Packers against Patriots

Four days after returning to the lineup, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison could be back on the shelf.

Game time is set for 8:20 p.m.

Rob Gronkowski played on Monday night against the Buffalo Bills, but it really didn't look like the Gronk we've seen over the years.

He'll face a Seahawks team that has won four of five and begins a stretch of six of nine games at home to close the regular season. Brady will test Green Bay's young secondary on Sunday minus the veteran Clinton-Dix.

"We've had challenges on the road", said coach Mike McCarthy, who is in his 13th season in Green Bay.

The way to beat Brady is also to pressure him up the middle. And for football fans in Wisconsin and New England, Sunday night has been starred on the calendar for a long time.

If Brady has time, he will pick apart nearly any defense.

Granted, Rodgers wasn't playing in that game due to injury, but it goes to show just how much the team relies on their future Hall of Fame quarterback in order to secure a win.

Los Angeles boasts the No. 2 overall offense with the top-ranked running game in the league, led by the versatile and electric Todd Gurley. He's run for 116 yards on 18 attempts but has been sacked 22 times. Aaron Jones finally got the bulk of the carries and the result was 86 yards and a 7.2-yard per carry average for the team's top rusher. Patriots 7, Packers 0. There are not many flaws in their game, and they even ran the ball decently WITHOUT Sony Michel last week.

Meanwhile, the Patriots' defense hasn't exactly shut down the opposition.

Edelman finished the game with 104 yards on nine receptions.

Valdes-Scantling has especially taken advantage of more work in recent games with injuries to starters Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. The rookie threw for 334 yards - still a personal best - but also had two interceptions.

The secondary can't give up big plays and that means that players must adapt quickly to their new roles. If you are going to buy tickets to a Packers game, get them from a company operating in Wisconsin for over 25 years.

Pettine has stopped opposing running backs out of the backfield recently by treating them as receivers when choosing coverage matchups.

The Packers enter this game having come up a fumble short of potentially defeating the undefeated Rams last week.
