DECEMBER 2018 THE WOLVERINE 63   MICHIGAN IN THE PROS The NFL TOM BRADY LEADS NEW ENGLAND TO THRILLING VICTORY OVER GREEN BAY The Nov. 4 showdown between the Packers and Patriots was dubbed by many as "GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) versus GOAT." The team's sig- nal caller — Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Tom Brady of New England — are considered two of the best to ever play the position. With the Patriots clinging to a narrow 24-17 lead with just 7:26 re- maining, Brady found wideout Josh Gordon for a 55-yard touchdown, ex- tending the margin to 14 and putting the capper on a thrilling 31-17 victory.
