Packers seek redemption against Falcons

Rejoice, citizens of Atlanta! The ESPN reporter for both the Packers and Falcons predicted the Falcons to win.

Rodgers also made a comment about the retractible roof, which is scheduled to be open on Sunday Night. Needless to say, the Packers would love to have their veteran right tackle back in Atlanta, against a team that led the National Football League with 15 sacks in 2016 and notched four sacks against the Bears last week. While a short-pass offense might not be the usual game plan, Green Bay can make it work. Minnesota might just have the best defense in the NFL.

If Bakhtiari, who also has a hamstring issue, weren't able to go, the Packers would be left with rookie Adam Pankey, who they just pulled up off the practice squad this week. They're undersized. That's kind of how New England caught up in the Super Bowl. "They get worn out".

Eight months ago, the Green Bay Packers took an eight-game winning streak to Atlanta for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons. As most have found a way to do since February, Sports Illustrated's Ben Baskin framed the opening of the stadium in a way that brought the Falcons' Super Bowl loss front and center. By now, however, it seems clear this isn't a storyline that is going away anytime soon, if ever. The tight end had a big game against the Chicago Bears.

The Broncos figure to receive a heavy dose of Elliott, whose six-game suspension in a domestic violence case is on hold. On top of that, Atlanta uses Ricardo Allen as the ultimate insurance policy and even has Damontae Kazee come in from time to time for some three-safety packages in a big nickel version of the defense.

As businesses around the country seek to gain the loyalty of millennials, a generation that appears to have vexed the status quo, Wes Gay of Forbes.com believes the Falcons are tackling this challenge head-on. The Packers will be heading to Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a healthier and far more talented group of defensive backs.

We could care less about right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who has a sprained ankle. Mike Daniels name was listed on the report when he was limited in practice on Thursday with a hip injury.

Backup tackle Jason Spriggs has been ruled out of Sunday's game (hamstring) and outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks is doubtful (concussion protocol).

Falcons fans may remember the name Chris Odom.

If Atlanta picks up any pressure at all that Green Bay throws at Atlanta, Matt Ryan will have the time of his life picking apart the Packers awful secondary. He will return to Atlanta this weekend, and it's another stop on his pretty interesting journey that Ryan Wood of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote about in this piece.

"Just in the personnel on the field alone, we have more speed", McCarthy said.

In the victory over Seattle, Daniels and Perry were a constant presence in the Seahawks backfield, with Daniels changing the course of the game with a third quarter strip-sack.

"The exciting thing about today is you know how much growth you have as a football team". I've been blessed. I've had some really good running backs that I was blessed and fortunate enough to coach over the years when I go back through the history.
