Could quarterback Matt Flynn have played better on Sunday? Sure, especially in the first half.
However, Flynn was surprisingly solid in the second half as he led the Green Bay Packers to three scoring drives and the final 12 points of the game. Flynn finished the game with a total 258 passing yards, one touchdown and an interception.
That interception resulted in a touchdown for the Atlanta Falcons, but it was a fluke pass that bounced off a foot before landing in the arms of linebacker Sean Weatherspoon. Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel had this to say about Flynn after the game:
After one month of mostly porous quarterback play, give this accolade to Flynn. He was far from Aaron Rodgers, far from perfect. The home crowd booed him at times. But in frigid conditions, he effectively moved the offense downfield all day.
Overall, Flynn played a solid game and was a key part in Green Bay winning this week. With that said, it would still be nice to get Aaron Rodgers back next week.
