The Patriots delivered some good news to fans on Saturday afternoon.
The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
Jerry Thornton of Barstool Sports is as fervent and dedicated a Patriots supporter there is, and even he thinks the team’s defensive philosophy is outdated and in need of an overhaul.
