Winner: Dontayvion Wicks

Two of Love's touchdowns went to Reed. The other went to another rookie receiver, fifth-round draft choice Dontayvion Wicks.

"They've got something in #13," writes Andy Herman of Packer Report.

The rookie caught two passes for 40 yards and a touchdown, but his numbers could've been even more impressive had it not been for a pass interference penalty on the Packers' very first play.

Wicks showed off his big-play ability by getting open deep downfield. He beat Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell and likely would have scored had Terrell not dragged him to the ground illegally. It cost the Falcons 44 yards but saved a touchdown.

Wicks did get his touchdown, though, a 32-yarder from Love. Wicks broke a tackle and made another defender miss before running into the end zone. It was a fantastic play from the Packers' rookie receiver, and he deserved it.

And he almost had another touchdown. Wicks beat Terrell in the end zone, but the Falcons corner recovered well to get a hand on a beautifully thrown pass from Love.

Wicks made an impact. The Packers may lack experience at wide receiver, but they don't lack talent. A top four of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks could become one of the best in the league.
