Join your APC brethren as we break down the first half of the Packers' game in real time.

Not all out-of-conference games are created equal. This afternoon, the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots will square off in one of the biggest NFC-AFC matchups of the 2014 season.

It's got Tom Brady vs. Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson vs. Darrelle Revis, and Rob Gronkowski vs. ...well, anyone and everyone that Dom Capers sees fit to throw at him in order to keep him contained. Will the Packers attack a tough Patriots secondary through the air early, or run Eddie Lacy often in order to soften up the middle of the New England defense? We'll soon find out.

Though the Packers have scored 50 points in each of their last two home games and are on a ridiculous streak in the first half lately, it would likely be foolish to expect similar results this week. Still, the Packers look like a different team at home than they have on the road, and Rodgers will try to maintain their recent success.
