Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons – NFC Championship

Atlanta Falcons vs Green Bay Packers Atlanta Falcons host Green Bay Packers in NFC Championship Game

The Atlanta Falcons (12-5) take on the Green Bay Packers (12-6) for the second time this season when they host the NFC Championship Game as home favorites. This may be a high-scoring game with Aaron Rodgers dazzling us with fantastic throws each time he steps on the field and Atlanta scoring 71 more points than any other team did in the regular season. The Atlanta Falcons beat Green Bay 33-32 in the first meeting during Week 8 of this season. The NFC Championship game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 3:05 p.m. ET, from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia. The game will be broadcast live on FOX.

When the Green Bay Packers have the ball it’s all about quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Packers have not relied on the running game lately. With Rogers at the helm, the Packers have won eight in a row in order to make the playoffs. Rogers finally threw an interception for the first time in nine games, but there is no doubt that Rodgers is playing on a completely different level right now. Defenses are lining up in nickel knowing that Green Bay isn’t going to run the ball but still can’t stop him. If Atlanta does lines up in nickel, they may see running back Ty Montgomery get the ball more often. Montgomery only has one 100-yard game this year, but Atlanta is weak on stopping the run this year.

The Atlanta Falcons have the NFL’s best scoring offense with quarterback Matt Ryan who is favorite to win the MVP award this season. Ryan is nearly unstoppable with a healthy wide receiver Julio Jones on the field. Julio Jones is one of the best wide receivers in the league but a nagging toe injury seems to have taken away some of his explosiveness.  Jones is averaging 17 yards a reception. In his last five games, he has only one 100-yard game. The Falcons offense are still putting up points without a fully healthy Jones. Offensive Coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons, Kyle Shanahan uses his running backs in the passing game which makes this offense difficult to stop. Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are constantly matched up against linebackers and they have made defenses pay. Freeman and Coleman combined for 204 total yards and two touchdowns against Seattle last week and half those yards came in the form of receptions. We know the Rogers has been magical lately, but we give Atlanta Falcons the edge to win this game in the end.

Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals, Week 16

Green+Bay+Packers+Arizona+CardinalsPackers travel to Arizona to play the Cardinals

The 12-2  Arizona Cardinals have already laid claim to the NFC West title and one more win would earn them a first round bye. A win for the 10-4 Green Bay Packers would keep their hopes for the No. 2 playoff seed alive entering the final weekend of the regular season. This should be a great matchup between two teams that could easily face one another again in the postseason. The matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals is scheduled for Sunday, December 27, 2015, at 4:25 p.m. ET at University of Phoenix Stadium. The game will be televised on FOX.

While Green Bay Packers offense isn’t as high-octane as it has been in past seasons, it has been getting the job done and the defense is playing well recently, allowing only 16.4 points per game over the team’s last six games. The Packers rank 26th in the league in average yards allowed per rush at 4.45 and have given up at least 100 yards on the ground in four straight. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers ranks No. 2 in the NFL with seven games this season with two-plus touchdown passes and zero interceptions. Cornerback Sam Shields, who likely would be assigned to cover Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald on Sunday, may miss his second straight game. Shields has yet to clear the concussion protocol and is in danger of missing his second straight game.

The Arizona Cardinals remains one of the most complete teams in the NFL this season behind a high-powered offense that is ranked No. 2  in the league with 31.8 points and a  defense that is allowing only 19.2 points a game. Last Sunday against the Eagles, rookie running back David Johnson went off with 187 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 29 carries to add more to the Cardinals offensive attack. The game showed what strength Arizona has on both sides of the ball. They scored over 30 points for the fourth time in the last seven weeks and holding their opponent to under 21 points for the fourth straight game. The team that wins the ground battle will probably win this game, and that team is more likely to be Arizona.

Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium


San Francisco 49ers in tough spot against Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are heading into Week 4 with a 3-0 record after beating the Kansas City Chiefs 38-28.  The San Francisco 49ers are coming off of an embarrassing 47-7 blowout loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Both of these teams are ready to play each other this week, with the 49ers looking to show they can play better than last week. The game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers is scheduled for Sunday, October 4, 2015, at 4:25 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium. The game will be broadcast on FOX.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the best in the NFL. Last week against the Chiefs, Rodgers completed  24 of 35 passes for 333 yards and 5 touchdown passes. Wide receiver James Jones is killing it for the Green Bay Packers and has turned into a great second receiver. Wide receiver Randall Cobb is a great red zone threat also. Running back Eddie Lacy didn’t look too healthy against the Chiefs and may be in better shape for the game against the 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had his all time worst game last week against Arizona. Arizona’s passing defense had more yards on interceptions than San Francisco’s receivers had in receiving yards. Carlos Hyde is one of the consistent players that the 49er offense has right now. Coach Jim Tomsula is going to continue to run the football no matter what the score is, and that could at least keep the clock running to shorten this game. Kaepernick will have to make plays with his legs to be able to open up the passing game. The 49ers could look completely different offensively from the team which played last week against Arizona.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field


Are Chiefs Ready for Challenge of Playing the Green Bay Packers?

While the Chiefs look to turn the page on a bitter loss to a division rival, the Packers try to move on from a satisfying revenge win when the teams face off Monday night. The Monday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs will take place on September 28, 2015, at 8:30 p.m. ET at Lambeau Field. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN. When the Green Bay Packers has the ball, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t thrown the ball all that much. He has only thrown for 189 and 249 yards in his first two games. Also for the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason, and it’s not certain that Randall Cobb is totally healthy either. With additional passes from quarterback Rogers comes more sacks.

The Kansas City Chiefs has a formidable pass rush, having registered eight sacks. Three have come from Justin Houston, who’s notched at least one sack in eight straight games and had a league-best 22 in 2014. Running back for Packers, Eddie Lacy is banged up and questionable to play. That means that Rodgers may have to utilize the passing game a bit more. The Chiefs corners haven’t been tested with deep passes in the two games against the Texans and the Broncos. The sack total will probably be high, and with all of the great pass rushers for the Chiefs, we see the opportunity there for a lot of problems for Rogers.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Alex Smith is going to have to do more than he has done so far this season. He has still been sacked six times so far this season. The outside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, Julius Peppers has been great so far this season, and the return of nose tackle B.J. Raji after missing all of last year has already been felt. We may get over 5.5 sacks on Monday Night Football.
