Takeaways from the Packers’ victory on Monday Night Football.

A quarter of the regular season is in the books and it’s been a dream start for the Green Bay Packers. They enter their bye week with an undefeated record, and have taken down two division rivals and another strong playoff contender in the process. After an emphatic victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night, what were the top three takeaways?

Head coach Matt LaFleur has now won 17 of 20 regular season games since taking the job last year. The Packers are riding a nine-game win streak in the regular season dating back to last December.

LaFleur also got revenge on his former team last night. He was the quarterbacks coach in Atlanta between 2015 and 2016, which includes the season the Falcons made it to the Super Bowl. The Falcons then opted against promoting LaFleur to replace Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator as they reportedly “weren’t too impressed with his work”.

Well, Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff had to have been impressed with LaFleur’s work last night as his offense dismantled the Falcons defense.

With this victory, the Packers improve to 4-0 and are sat in a great position as they hit their bye week. They impressed again on Monday night, but what did we learn from the game?
