Packers Keys To Victory Versus the Falcons


The Green Bay Packers continue their playoff road trip on Saturday at the Georgia Dome where they will take on the #1-seeded Atlanta Falcons in a NFC divisional match-up.

When these two teams met back in week 12, it didn’t go so well for the Green and Gold. Following a 40 yard kickoff-return from Eric Weems, Pro Bowl QB Matt Ryan moved his team down the field to set up for the game-winning 47 yard field goal with nine seconds left.

Here’s what the Packers need to do if they want to avenge the loss and more importantly advance to the NFC Championship for a chance to play in the biggest game of them all, the Super Bowl.

Green Bay Packers Face NFL’s Hottest Team in New England


A questionable Aaron Rodgers and a 7-3 upset by the Detroit Lions has the Green Bay Packers limping into one of the biggest games of the season. At a full game back of the NFC-North leading Chicago Bears, the Packers will desperately look for a win on Sunday night in Foxborough against the NFL’s hottest team.

While the New England Patriots (11-2) will be more than just another bump in the road, the Packers (8-5) need to find a way to overcome this offensive funk they have found their selves in. Particularly on third down where the Packers went 2-for-12 in the loss to the Lions. If they cannot do this, they may be a ten-win team looking from the outside when it comes time for the playoffs.

Entering the season, the Green Bay Packers were the trendy pick for the NFC’s representative in the Super Bowl. I would be interested to see how many of those people would like to go back and change their predictions after watching the team lose three key starters to significant injuries. To make matters worse, the Packers failed at pursuing RB Marshawn Lynch and now have to play the Vikings’ Randy Moss (historically a Packer killer) at least twice this season.

Here’s a breakdown of each of the Packers’ early misfortunes and what they need to do to win the NFC North.
