The Packers will face off on Sunday night for a game that is sure to be a good one. Last year the Packers and Falcons met, it was in the NFC Divisional Playoff game, where the Packers routed the Falcons 48-21. Despite the score, both teams are incredibly talented, as the Falcons were 13-3 and the Number 1 seed in the NFC before the Packers, sitting at the Number 6 seed, exposed their defense and routed them in the playoffs.
The strength for the Falcons is their offense, as they have one of the best young quarterbacks in the game in Matt Ryan, a playmaking runningback in Michael Turner, and a talented receiving corps led by Roddy White, with wide receiver Julio Jones, who they acquired in the draft, being added to the mix.
The weak spot for the Falcons, is their defense, who was exposed by the Packers in the playoffs, as they rolled up 48 points against them. The Falcons didn't do alot in the offseason to improve their defense, giving away everything they had in the draft for receiver Jones.
This will be another close game; the Falcons may have the weaker defense, but they play great in the Georgia Dome, and they will play their best to beat the team that beat them in January.
The Packers will play tough, but the Falcons will get their revenge, and defeat the Packers in a close game on Sunday night.
Score: Falcons 28, Packers 24
