Patriots Outlasted By Packers, Lose 27-24 in Overtime: Live Game Log

The Patriots hit the road to take on an NFC foe in the Packers.

It has been an up-and-down season so far for the New England Patriots, as they enter their Week 4 matchup against the Green Bay Packers with a 1-2 record. 

Against quality opponents in the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens the Patriots have struggled on both sides of the ball, while the defense looked good in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Now, as they travel to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, their defense will need to put together a masterclass if they want to stay in the game with a chance to win it. They will be without quarterback Mac Jones, turning instead to his backup Brian Hoyer

One game does not define a season, but a strong showing even without Jones would offer Patriots' fans hopes for a season that at times has looked lost. 

If Hoyer and the Patriots struggle, though, it could be a long season even when Jones comes back, as the Patriots look to make it back to the playoffs in a division featuring the Buffalo Bills and an upstart Dolphins team.
