Bet on the NFL Week 15 of the 2010 NFL season features the dominating New England Patriots vs. the Green Bay Packers. The Green Bay Packers head to New England December 19th to take on the New England Patriots. The Green Bay Packers could be without their leader Aaron Rodgers in this key game to decide the NFC North division winner. If Rodgers is forced to sit because of a concussion under the new NFL rules, the Packers will have to go with Matt Flynn a relative unknown at the quarterback position.
The New England Patriots have demolished their last two opponents, the New York Jets and the Chicago Bears and have not allowed a touchdown in two games. Offensively, Tom Brady is in a zone and this game is looking much too easy for a New England Patriots team that is in the zone.
The much maligned young defense of the New England Patriots has stepped up over the last two games and if Aaron Rodgers is under center for the Green Bay Packers, it will be their best test in over a month. The New England Patriots pass defense has given up over 280 yards per game but they have been much improved once the weather has turned frigid in New England.
Sportsbook record the Pats as the top of the NFC East this season, with an 11-2-0 record. The Packers are too shabby at 8-5-0 which puts them in second place in the NFC North.
The Green Bay Packers offense has been an adventure this season. The lack of a true number one running back and a true possession tight end has hurt them but they have overcome the problems for the most part. Donald Driver is still one of the premiere possession wide receivers in the NFL and Jordy Nelson has picked up some of slack as well. Greg Jennings is still one of the best long ball deep threats in the NFL also. The New England Patriots defense has the edge over the Green Bay Packers offense.
Tom Brady has emerged this season from mediocrity in the first few games to another stratosphere as the season closes out. The New England Patriots offense turned the corner with the departure of Randy Moss and the arrival of Deion Branch. Brady is spraying the ball and involving all his players in the offense. Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis is being used in spots and has produced when he has been called on.
