The Packers remian one of two undefeated teams in the NFL as they travel into the Georgia Dome this Sunday to face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football. For the second time in this young season the defending Super Bowl Champs will be on prime time television to show the nation their talent. While the team has been on a roll as of late the Falcons will prove to be a tough test this weekend for the Packers as there are many story lines in this match-up.
Last year the Packers came into Atlanta and embarrassed the Falcons during the playoffs on their run to the Super Bowl and the Falcons are far from happy about it. Look for them, as well as their crowd to be ready to go. It is more than just a game this weekend for the Falcons.
While the Falcons have their reasons for being excited for this game, so do the Packers, specifically Quarterback Aaron Rodgers. After the win over the Falcons in last years playoffs wide receiver Roddy White said the Falcons were the better team and should have one, but one question for White, is the better team normally the one which wins the game? Rodgers and company wondered the same thing as some words were tossed around, but look for Rodgers to come out and put on the Title Belt in this game.
All the Packers need to do in this game is get up early and it’ll be over early for the Falcons, who have struggled getting the running game going with running back Michael Turner going this season. The Falcons have not been able to have tons of success in the passing game when they have been forced to come back from behind, so look for the Packers to get off to a fast start and coast for the win. The Packers remain undefeated after a 41-27 win over Atlanta.
