Packers vs. Falcons odds 2017: Atlanta small favorite in NFC championship rematch

17 September, 2017, 00:54 | Author: Joan Malone
  • Seattle Seahawks offensive guard Rees Odhiambo helps up Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson after he is sacked for a loss of 10 yards by Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry left on Sunday Sept. 10 2017 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay Wis

As long as they stick with it, the commitment to the run game should pay off against an Atlanta defence that was gashed for 6.6 yards per carry by the Chicago Bears in Week 1.

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 Falcons offense finished second in the National Football League in passing touchdowns and total yards per game.

"He's reminded me of that during the week", Carroll said. "Maybe an opportunity or two for some big ones to him. He's always a factor in what we do". "I don't know what I need to do to get you to believe it".

"I'm more than thrilled to come here, man, on a winning team - left another winning team to come to an even better team". I would have done this different, or I would have done that different.

"Yeah, sure there were a few shots I thought that might have been a better call here or there", Sarkisian said. But all in all, credit to Julio, five targets, four catches for 60 yards and some big plays for us, and right back out and practiced like insane for the last two days. He knows the ball is going to come his way.

He will not be suspended for the incident, but merely fined, allowing him to play this Sunday when the team travels to take on the Atlanta Falcons.

On Thursday when he met with reporters in the Falcons' locker room, Jones said he wasn't concerned about his stats. I saw him out of my peripheral, which isn't the best all the time.

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.

Sunday night will usher in a new era for the Falcons franchise as they play their first game inside of the spectacular Mercedes-Benz Stadium. NBC will televise the game at 7:30 p.m. CDT.

Q: Is this a NFC Championship game rematch? In that contest, Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the rest of the Falcons playmakers seemed to do whatever they wanted against the Packers defense. Green Bay finished with a season-high five drops in that loss to Atlanta.

In the offseason, the Packers signed cornerback Davon House, got cornerbacks Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins back from injuries and used their first-round draft pick on cornerback Kevin King of Washington.

"Last year's last year", the Packers coach said Wednesday. I wish they let you fight.

The Packers have actually faced three reigning MVPs before in the McCarthy era, but they were all running backs.

Two of Rodgers' primary protectors, LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle/illness) have not had a full week of practice. "I look at it like I tell my kids when they're playing sports", Whitt said. "They cut some guys".

All the Packers No. 1 receiver wore for protection against the Falcons was a traditional quarterback flak jacket with some added padding rigged up by the medical and equipment staffs, and the only thing that really hurt Nelson was the final outcome, which was the Packers' second conference title game loss in three years.

Sarkisian and Matt Ryan must figure it out as the game moves along.

You can bet that Capers, who's 67 and has been the Packers' defensive coordinator since 2009, has an original plan for Jones. "But you've just have to try to eliminate those explosive plays". "The guy's good. If not the best, he's No. 2, if not No. 1".

Even ignoring his abysmal protection, it's not as if Wilson had much help.
