road victory of the season on Sunday [url=]Montee Ball Jersey Salute to Service[/url] , when they defeated the Chicago Bears 38-31. Early during the contest, however, running back Sony Michel was lost to a serious-looking injury: the rookie, who was coming off a phenomenal three-game stretch, stayed on the ground after hurting his knee on a tackle and later had to be carted to the locker room.As grave as the injury appeared to be, initial reports coming out of New England were positive. An MRI done on Monday revealed no structural damage to Michel’s knee and the Patriots’ first round draft pick was consequently considered to be week-to-week. Now, a new report by the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride created a more concrete timeline for the recovery: Michel may only “miss a week or two” with the injury and could therefore be back on the field before New England’s week 11 bye.While this timetable would allow Michel to return as soon as week 9 against the Green Bay Packers, it would still not be a surprise to see the team hold out or at least limit its number one back until after the bye week. While New England lacks depth at the position, it will likely not rush Michel – a player that has a history of knee issues and was forced to miss all of preseason and the regular season opener due to injury – back.According to McBride, another Patriot also has a realistic chance to return soon: tight end Rob Gronkowski. After experiencing back spasms last week and subsequently missing New England’s game in Chicago, the 29-year old could return as early as next Monday night against his hometown Buffalo Bills – a team against which he has been enormously successful in the past: in 13 games, Gronkowski recorded 66 catches for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns.Considering that his contract – one that was restructured in late August – includes multiple playing time and performance incentives [url=]Deatrich Wise Jr Jersey[/url] , the tight end would have added motivation to return to the field soon. Then again, the Patriots will likely play it safe again with the big-picture in mind and try to limit an overexposure to hits until Gronkowski is as close to 100% as is possible at this point in the season. A tough week for the Green Bay Packers ended with a sorely needed win that relied on a familiar formula.They beat a warm-weather team on a chilly afternoon at Lambeau Field by building a big lead and winning the turnover margin.Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and set an NFL record for interception-free football, and the Packers beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-20 on Sunday to win their first game under interim head coach Joe Philbin.Aaron Jones ran for a 29-yard score in the third quarter. The defense forced two turnovers 鈥?their first takeaways in three games 鈥?and limited quarterback Matt Ryan after a game-opening touchdown drive to hand Atlanta its fifth straight loss and guarantee the Falcons a losing record for the first time since 2014.The Packers (5-7-1) regained some swagger with Philbin taking over for the fired Mike McCarthy. They've still got work to do to avoid a losing record, but at least Green Bay snapped a three-game losing streak."It was an emotional week, we all know that. I feel very happy for the organization, players and staff that work so hard to make this a unique place," Philbin said. "I told the team I was very proud to be their head coach today."In return, the team gave the game ball to Philbin."He's a great man. I love Joe. I love everything that he's about, and it was a lot of fun," said receiver Randall Cobb, who caught a 24-yard touchdown pass with 12:44 left in the third quarter to make it 27-7.That pass also turned out to be momentous for other reasons for Rodgers, giving him 359 consecutive attempts without an interception to break the league record previously held by New England's Tom Brady (358 in 2010-11).Rodgers finished 21 of 32 for 196 yards and two scores. Linebacker Deion Jones had a couple chances to snap Rodgers' interception streak, but couldn't hang on either time."You need a little bit of good fortune when you have a streak like that [url=]Limited Rex Burkhead Jersey[/url] ," Rodgers said.The Falcons (4-9) had trouble keeping up after their first series. When they did, they hurt themselves with eight defensive penalties."It's definitely frustrating, maddening, disbelief, all of those things when we don't execute on those," coach Dan Quinn said.FRUSTRATED FALCONSAtlanta found some semblance of a running game that it hoped to get to open up play action. Yet the Falcons still endured a long drought after Ryan found Julio Jones for a 16-yard touchdown pass on an easy opening series.By the time Ryan and Jones connected for another score, from 12 yards with 13:34 left in the game, Atlanta was still down by 20.Their frustrating and injury-filled season was epitomized by a botched snap in the red zone later in the fourth.Atlanta drove to the 8 when the shotgun snap from center Alex Mack hit Mohamed Sanu's leg while the receiver was in motion. Bashaud Breeland recovered."That was tough, but that's on me," Ryan said. "The whole operation starts and ends with me, so I've got to do a better job of that and making sure that we don't have things like that coming up."He finished 28 of 42 for 262 yards and three scores, connecting with Justin Hardy for a 19-yard touchdown with 14 seconds left. Ryan also tossed a 22-yard interception returned for a score by Breeland in the second quarter.ON THE RUNRyan was outplayed by Rodgers, who also hurt Atlanta on the ground with trademark scrambles. A scrum broke out in the second quarter after cornerback Brian Poole hit Rodgers as the quarterback slid near the end of a 21-yard run to the Atlanta 27.Pushing and shoving ensued [url=]Josh Gordon Jersey[/url] , with Deion Jones and Packers center Corey Linsley each whistled for offsetting personal fouls. After a sack, the Packers still got a 48-yard field goal as time expired to take a 13-point halftime lead.Guard Lucas Patrick, one of three backups filling in up front because of injuries, also got physical after Rodgers went down."To take a cheap shot, as we felt, I didn't like that, so I wanted to go down there and let the guy know and kind of lock him up and let him know that's not going to fly," Patrick said.UNDER PRESSURERodgers was sacked four times, but all four hits came in the first half. Overall, it turned into a good day for the line, even with left guard Lane Taylor (foot), right guard Byron Bell (knee) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee/illness) out with injuries.UP NEXTFalcons: Host the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 16.Packers: Visit the Chicago Bears on Dec. 16.
