Packers have another chance to claim NFC superiority

Packers have another chance to claim NFC superiority

Who will cover Julio Jones? . But after being no better than the No. 5 cornerback in Green Bay's season-opening victory over Seattle on Sunday, Gunter was deemed expendable.

Aaron Rodgers knows the Green Bay Packers have their work cut out for them this Sunday. The Seahawks are known for their elite defense, anchored by playmakers like free safety Earl Thomas III, linebacker Bobby Wagner, defensive end Michael Bennett, and cornerback Richard Sherman. He has averaged 325.6 yards passing. Below are several Green Bay Packers impact players who will be looking to make a strong showing in week two against the Atlanta Falcons. To sit on there and go through that player by player Monday night with (strength coach) Mark Lovat, it's really impressive to see the workload that these men put out in the course of one game.

That's because a year ago, the former Alabama standout also had four receptions for 66 yards in the season-opening game and followed it with a 5-106-1 line.

The O-line wasn't entirely to blame, however. The ensuing scuffle between the two should have produced a pair of personal foul calls, but there simply wasn't any sufficient evidence to warrant Lane's ejection.

How has Green Bay's offense evolved since the NFC Championship Game, and will it be a difference-maker Sunday?

Green Bay, which is 1-0 SU and ATS, can likely count on Rodgers continuing his success (325.6 yards/game in seven career games) against Atlanta.

Rodgers was sacked four times in the victory over Seattle. Wilson finished with a mediocre passing stat line: 14/27 for 158 yards, no touchdowns, and a lost fumble.

The fact that Lane was not issued a fine makes a much larger statement that the National Football League believes its officials may have made an incorrect call.

He came away from that film study noting that there were four missed tackles that made the game closer than expected.

"Just in the personnel on the field alone, we have more speed", McCarthy said. He will undergo surgery to fix an ailing disk in his back.

As for other injuries, the Packers listed defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hip) as questionable after his dominating performance against the Seahawks, but didn't indicate that he was overly concerned about the injury when he spoke with reporters Friday.

Matt Ryan drove the Falcons for a game winning touchdown in the final minute during the 2016 regular season, a 33-32 final and we all remember what happened in the NFC Championship game last January, a humbling 44-21 beatdown. The Packers like to hit Cobb on short quick routes so he can make a move and get in the open field.

While working out bugs in the complex system, which resembles a camera aperture, the roof remained closed for seven games over its first 3 weeks, including a couple of Falcons preseason contests. Montgomery isn't a great running back and could struggle, especially if the tackles are all banged up. But Green Bay believes 2017 can be different. "You can't rewrite history", Rodgers said.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has stressed the importance of balance on offence this season and it showed in their win over Seattle last week.

Green Bay may have been able to wreak havoc in the Seattle backfield, but Atlanta's offensive line is exponentially better than whatever $8 million can buy in the Pacific Northwest.
