Five Key Players for the Atlanta Falcons Against the Green Bay Packers

The Packers have been fighting for their postseason lives since Week 16 and have been doing it successfully. They are still alive in the Divisional Round with a chance to head to Atlanta, Georgia to take on the Falcons in the Georgia Dome. The game includes two evenly matched teams, as the 20-17 final in Week 12 shows.

Both Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan played extremely well in the first matchup, but after a Rodgers fumble at the Falcons' one yard line early in the game took away a possible touchdown, the Packers found themselves having to tie the game up at 17 with 56 seconds left on the clock, and it proved to be too much time left as a good kickoff return and a facemask gave the Falcons good field position and Ryan made his way into field goal range and the win.

This is a game that includes two young quarterbacks that are still trying to find their way in the league and earning more respect from analysts and fans with the play when it matters most: in the playoffs. This game may come down to these players making plays for the Falcons when they need them the most.
