Stakes high as Bills visit Patriots

Rodgers: Open to rest if eliminated

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Aaron Rodgers said he'd have an open mind if the Green Bay Packers get eliminated from playoff contention and team officials approach him about resting to allow more game reps for his backup, Jordan Love.

Fields' status for Packers still unsure

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Justin Fields threw lightly on the field prior to the Chicago Bears' game last week, hoping he would be able to play through an injury to his nonthrowing shoulder after being listed as questionable on the team's final report.

It didn't work out that way.
