The Patriots benched Patrick Chung as the kickoff returner and turned to Danny Amendola. Bill Belichick has sometimes cycled through returners until finding a hot hand to use for the season.

Week 13: at Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Tom Brady is on a tear through the NFL - after opening the season with one TD pass per game during September (Weeks 1-4), he's thrown multiple TDs in each game since then, with over 300 yards passing in three of his last four starts (and 13 passing TDs vs. four interceptions thrown during that four game span). Tight ends Tim Wright (15 targets for 13/99/4 receiving) and Rob Gronkowski (34 for 27/304/5) have accounted for nine of the passing scores over the past four games. Meanwhile, Brandon LaFell (40 for 29/337/2) and Julian Edelman (37 for 26/242/1) have also found pay dirt on occasion and are the top two targets for Brady over the past four contests. The Patriots' passing attack is going full bore entering the stretch run into the playoffs. Green Bay's pass D goes for turnovers (15 interceptions to date, tied for second in the NFL) and pass pressure (27 sacks, tied for 12th), and they've been above-average in terms of passing yards allowed per game this year, allowing 234.4 net passing yards per game (13th in the NFL) with 17 passing scores handed out to date. New England is tied for fifth in the NFL with only 16 sacks of Tom Brady allowed so far. Last week, Teddy Bridgewater was sacked twice for -14 yards and intercepted once on the way to 21/37 for 196 net yards passing and two scores thrown; two weeks ago Mark Sanchez was sacked three times for -26 yards and intercepted twice on his way to 26/44 for 320 yards passing, with two TDs thrown. Lambeau is always a tough place to visit in the winter, but Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski have been basically matchup-proof since the beginning of October. Detroit sports one of the top overall defensive units in the league and got stomped by 25 points last week. Always start your studs.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 12 vs DET (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Essentially a non factor in the passing game, Amendola's biggest contribution was a rock solid 81 yard kick return. He's found a way to contribute, just not in a way that fantasy players will find relevant.
