The Green Bay Packers take on the Atlanta Falcons in our second playoff game of the season. The last meeting ended in a disappointing loss by a Falcons’ field goal with nine seconds left on the clock.
This time, things are going to be different.
Aaron Rodgers is playing at the top of his game. The offense is in-sync, on defense, we have the “Beast Tsunami” of Matthews, Raji, Hawk and Bishop. PLUS an newly added threat of a running game. Last time, the Packers had only 77 yards total rushing, with Rodgers getting the bulk of that.
This time, we have a rookie RB James Starks, and a seemingly rejuvenated Brandon Jackson, who suddenly decided to get behind a blocker, slow down and get the escort into the end zone last week.
The Packers defense held the Falcons to only 117 rushing yards. This time, I think we’ll see even fewer runs get by them.
This team is hungry, this team is passionate and this team wants to win.
