Facing Green Bay has become less scary than it was a season or two ago. Just last year the Falcons beat this team twice with little trouble though the first match-up was a tight one the second in the NFC Championship game was never close. The Falcons blew the Packers off the field on their way to the Super Bowl and looked untouchable.
For Rodgers and company this game will be one that they will circle considering the beating that the Falcons put on them ending their Super Bowl hopes. If there is one game that Falcons fans can count on to watch a shootout it will be this game.
The Packers haven’t made many big changes this off-season adding a couple of complimentary weapons for Rodgers on offense but look much the same on the other side of the ball. Anytime that Rodgers is healthy the Packers are going to have a chance and be in the playoff hunt.
Atlanta’s schedule overall is tough facing a lot of playoff teams and tough divisional match-ups. While tough the Falcons schedule should not influence the fact that they are division favorites and likely headed for the playoffs yet again in 2017. With one goal in mind getting the taste of their Super Bowl collapse out of their mouth by winning Super Bowl 52.
