The New England Patriots are humming. So much so it shouldn't matter if Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can overcome last week's concussion and play Sunday night in Gillette Stadium.
In AccuScore's 10,000 computer simulations, the Patriots won 65 percent of the time and by and average of five points even with Rodgers available. The number climbed to 84 percent without him, the Patriots winning by an average of 14 points.
The Packers rank ninth in total defense and third is pass defense, but Brady still averaged 270 yards and a 90 passer rating. BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead averaged 5 yards a carry.
Looks like an AFC East-clinching victory ahead.
