Green Bay Packers: Quick game is solution to offensive line problems

Tom Oates: Surprise cut of CB LaDarius Gunter signals new philosophy for Packers

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which replaced the Georgia Dome.

Injuries forced former undrafted free agent LaDarius Gunter in to the No. 1 cornerback role for Green Bay in the NFC Championship game. I don't remember how it went throughout the week, but by the time we got to Wednesday practice, I knew I was playing. Every time that I went to go work out, I had to pass the Stadium. "But we like it". Both teams looked much different than in that match-up last week however and this time the game could be tilted in the Packer's favor.

Yes, the converted receiver was listed as the starting tailback on the Green Bay Packers' depth chart to open the season. Reigning NFL MVP Matt Ryan will orchestrate a methodical drive with three minutes left that will eventually set up a game-winning 35-yard field goal from kicker Matt Bryant as time expires. Quinn said the Falcons missed double-digit tackles last Sunday, and Allen Strk of The Falcoholic went back through the game film to determine just how inconsistent the team's tackling really was. That one was a blowout for Atlanta, which raced out to a 24-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 44-21 triumph. "I felt great. I'm dead serious", Nelson said. "You can't rewrite history. Also, guys were just flying to the football". You have to be able to move around and try and showcase your versatility to try and help out the team the best way that I can. Giving him a little more love in the passing game isn't going to hurt the Packers. "If I have to take on contact or deliver contact than that's what it is", Montgomery said Thursday when asked if he prefers to seek out contact.

Then there's his weapons, two in particular. "That's nothing new for us, but not enjoyable, either". Clearly you don't expect the protection to be as strong. Minnesota might just have the best defense in the NFL.

Julio Jones exploded for 9 catches, 180 yards and two touchdowns during last season's NFC Championship win over the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers also will want revenge. Rodgers has a 117 passer rating (2,279 yards, 19 TDs, 2 INTs) in seven career games against the Falcons.

Sanchez: Canelo Doesn't Have the Punching Power Golovkin Does
As of now, Golovkin is listed as the favorite heading into Saturday's bout, but just slightly. It won't erase the Mayweather loss, but it could supersede it in a sense.

The Green Bay Packers came through on Sunday in their 17-9 victory at Lambeau Field over the Seattle Seahawks, a game in which unrelenting defensive pressure, anemic offensive production, and unreliable offensive line protection were defining factors at various points for both teams.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has stressed the importance of balance on offence this season and it showed in their win over Seattle last week. Reed's takedown of Chicago QB Mike Glennon in the waning seconds preserved the Falcons' season-opening win.

The Atlanta Falcons might never live down their Super Bowl LI collapse, but that was one game and Matt Ryan and cohorts are reliable when they are laying points.

Brooks may be 33, but his pass rushing skills are still effective and make for an excellent complement behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry. Mercedes-Benz Stadium officially hosts it's first ever National Football League game in what should be one of the regular season's most exciting matchups. His next game action will be his first game action in a Packers' uniform.

Montgomery passed his first test in his first season opener as a full-timer in the backfield.
