Bold predictions for the Packers against the Falcons in Week 4.

The Green Bay Packers have a great opportunity in front of them on Monday Night Football.

A chance to complete the first quarter of the regular season — and enter their bye week — with a perfect record. To start the season 4-0 with wins on the road against the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints would be a phenomenal achievement for Matt LaFleur and his team, and would set them on their way for another playoff run this season.

Standing in their way of achieving this are the Atlanta Falcons, a team entering Week 4 winless and desperate for a victory. Despite their record, Dan Quinn’s team are clearly talented, especially on offense. Had they not thrown away a 29-10 lead against the Dallas Cowboys or a 26-10 lead in the fourth quarter versus the Chicago Bears last Sunday, things would look very different this week.

Both the Packers and Falcons rank near the top in the NFL for offense but have struggled on the defensive side of the ball. It could all lead to another battle of two talented offenses at Lambeau Field on Monday night.

With the Packers aiming to improve to 4-0, here are three bold predictions for their primetime showdown with the Falcons.
