Mac Jones and Aaron Rodgers will do battle this fall

by

The 2022 Patriots schedule will be officially revealed Thursday night, but we already know the date and time for one of New England’s marquee matchups.

The Patriots will head west for a Week 4 Sunday afternoon showdown with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reported Wednesday night, citing a source. Kickoff from Lambeau Field will take place at 4:25 p.m. ET.

With the NFL season opener scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 8, the Patriots-Packers game seemingly will happen Sunday, Oct. 2. There is no word on which network will broadcast the contest.

The Packers were excellent last season, going 13-4 and earning the NFC’s top playoff seed. However, Rodgers and company came up short in the postseason, suffering a disappointing divisional-round loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

New England, of course, limped to a 10-7 finish in the regular season before getting blown out in a divisional-round loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Barring injury, the game will mark the first matchup between Rodgers and Patriots quarterback Mac Jones. Rodgers went 1-2 against New England during the Tom Brady era, most recently suffering a 31-17 loss at Gilette Stadium in 2018.
