Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are coming off a tough loss to Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. Unfortunately, it doesn't get much easier in Week 4.
Belichick has begun preparations for Aaron Rogers and the Packers at Lambeau this coming Sunday. He is well aware his team has a big challenge at hand.
In discussing the Pats' Week 4 game on Monday, Belichick noted that Rodgers is good at "pretty much everything."
"Pretty much everything. He’s very smart. A very good athlete," Belichick explained on "The Greg Hill Show," via Fox News. "He’s got very good quickness and the ability to avoid and escape guys in the pocket to extend plays. Really no weaknesses with the player at all. Tremendous amount of experience in game situation management. He’s as good as there is.
"Glad he’s in the NFC and haven’t had to face him more than he had because he’s always been a problem. And looks like he’s playing extremely well again as he always does. It’ll be a big challenge for us defensively this week. Not just him, but (Aaron) Jones and the entire offense. It’s a good offensive team. They’re well coached. They have a lot of good players, and they have a great, great quarterback."
To make matters worse for the Patriots, they will likely be without second-year quarterback Mac Jones.
Jones reportedly suffered a "pretty severe" ankle injury vs. the Ravens on Sunday. He will likely miss a couple of weeks, at the least.
Bill Belichick and the Patriots have their backs against the wall going up against Rodgers and Co. at Lambeau this Sunday.
