Martellus Bennett Fined for Defending Aaron Rodgers After Hit by KJ Wright

How Aaron Rodgers added to his free play mastery vs. Seahawks

Following Atlanta's victory in Chicago, coach Dan Quinn said correcting the missed tackles was at the "top of the list" for the team this week.

Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett, who played at Georgia Tech and North Clayton High, is in his eighth season in the NFL. "I'm anxious to hear how the league tells us how that went and what should happen there". I wish they let you fight. "But we like it".

November 24, 2013, at Lambeau Field - Peterson carried 32 times for 146 yards and a score, but Packers backup QB Matt Flynn relieved Scott Tolzien and rallied Green Bay to a 26-26 overtime tie. Falcons QB Matt Ryan has passed for 1,055 yards, 11 TDs and 1 INT in his past three performances, including the playoffs.

It's a new year and new team, but Falcons are still confident heading into Sunday's match up. That one was a blowout for Atlanta, which raced out to a 24-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 44-21 triumph.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant said Rodgers "puts extra pressure on the defensive backs" with his ability to extend plays. "You can't rewrite history". Sunday Night Football in a new stadium, I think they've played one college game there so far. TE Austin Hooper will give the Packers problems up the middle, too, forcing safeties to make a critical decision between covering him or the always-dangerous Jones.

"I thought we could have had some (more),"Quinn said". "Even though we've won the last two games, man, we go into these weeks with a lot of respect for then".

Getafe 1 Barcelona 2
Entering this fixture Barcelona had taken a maximum nine points from the nine available and hadn't conceded a goal. Getafe and remain ideal in La Liga courtesy of new-signing Paulinho's strike late on.

Ahmad Brooks was signed to the active roster only a short time ago, but his absence for this coming Sunday will be a bigger issue than most realize. "This is a team you have to play championship football against".

Although the penalty cost Green Bay 15 yards, Rodgers got a first down on the play, and the Packers managed to run out the clock on that drive to preserve the win. Julio Jones also had a quiet outing, catching just four passes for 66 yards and after burning Green Bay in last season's NFC Championship, the superstar wideout is licking his lips at Sunday night's matchup. "Atlanta's secondary isn't very good". In the NFC championship game, Jones had nine catches for 180 yards and two touchdowns. Green Bay released him on Tuesday (and the Carolina Panthers grabbed him off the waiver wire). Rodgers has a 117 passer rating (2,279 yards, 19 TDs, 2 INTs) in seven career games against the Falcons.

Green Bay's defense had a terrific debut, especially considering how terrible the Packers were against the pass last season. Montgomery showed he can handle a full workload after taking 90 percent of the offensive snaps. If Daniels plays as well as he did last week, the Packers defense should continue to impress. But Atlanta's Matt Ryan and the Falcons' passing attack are a much different animal.

However, Rodgers was pressured, hit, or on the ground for much of the game, especially during a cringeworthy first half in which Green Bay's offensive line surrendered four sacks.

Assuming the weather is good - and the forecast called for evening temperatures in the 60s and only a slight chance of rain - the retractable roof at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be open for the first time during a game.
