Foxborough, MA (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Quarterback Matt Flynn and the Green Bay Packers put up a valiant fight, but in the end it was the New England Patriots coming out on top, again.

Flynn was filling in for Aaron Rodgers, who suffered his second concussion of the season during last week's loss to the Detroit Lions.

Flynn finished the day with 251 yards and three touchdowns, but threw an interception early in the second half that was returned for a touchdown.

His inexperience also came into play on the game's final drive, when the Packers looked unorganized and wasted lots of time. Flynn was sacked on the final play of the game trying to score a winning touchdown.

The loss drops Green Bay to (8-6) and all but takes them out of playoff contention, with the (9-4) Chicago Bears playing the Vikings on Monday Night Football.
