Packers vs. Falcons: 5 Things We Learned from Atlanta's 25-14 Loss

The Atlanta Falcons entered Sunday night's home game against the Green Bay Packers hoping to spell revenge and move on from last year's agonizing defeat in the playoffs at the hands of Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay.

Instead, the Packers rewound back to that date and pressed play, rolling over the Falcons with 25 unanswered points to put away Atlanta in their own building.

And, just like last year, a quick strike Atlanta attack was zapped by Aaron Rodgers, and a prolific, completely unstoppable passing attack.

The Falcons also found ways to shoot themselves in the foot with costly penalties and another game with zero push from the offensive line.

After two very impressive and seemingly scripted drives from the Falcons offense, Atlanta ran out of tricks and were eventually out-muscled by the defending Super Bowl champs.

Sure, in isolation, an 11-point loss to the defending champs doesn't seem too bad, but this Atlanta team (2-3, 0-1 NFC South) is in a heap of trouble.

Here are five things we learned in the loss.
