This NFC Championship game between the Falcons and the Packers. Hmm? Hmm? Hmm? Logic would dictate the the hometown boys the Falcons SHOULD WIN? That's what I thought when I thought the Cowboys should've taken care of the Packers when them Cowboys were playing them at home last week in the Divisional round, when I predicted a 24-21 win for the Cowboys. Nelson plays Sunday the Green Bay Packers win 28-27 OT if Nelson doesn't play Atlanta Falcons win 28-21 in regulation. In all probability Green Bay goes home to prepare for the 2017 season. Seeing the Green Bay Packers in playoff action won't come if they lose this one to the Mighty Falcons until 2025. There prime for a long losing streak, even though I love this time, there chariot ride is done and they will be dormant for at least 8 if not 10 years before they become elite. After all, all good things have to come to an end. Look on the bright side we do have a lot of up and coming teams that have bright futures in 2017 ie Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions just to name a few. Stay tune NFL fans the 2017 season promises to be full of plenty of surprises. So mark your calendars for Thursday September 7, 2017 when the NFL starts up their 256 game schedule through Sunday December 31,2017 and hopeful NFL fans across America that your team will be represented in Super Bowl 52 to be played at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota the home of the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday February 4, 2018. See you then. Kevin L. Broehm Albuquerque, NM.
It's going to be a great game! I got GB and NE winning.
Solid analysis.
Packers Offsensive Line "Below Average"?? lol k.
*Rodgers
Falcons offense is by far more complete. GB secondary is decimated, way worse than last time out, and Falcons scored 33. Falcons will put up at least 38 this game. Falcon defense has also improved since last game and despite what GB is getting back, it doesn't matter because the person that makes the offense move is only one player (Rogers). Stop Rogers twice and Falcons win.
It's a shootout with two unstoppable offenses with meager defense on both sides. By default it'll be 50-50. Edge to the Packers for having Rodgers at the top of his game. Also consider that the Packers did not have Clay Mathews, Jared Cook, Ty Montgomery, Randall Cobb, or Damarious Randall for the last game. Since then, our offense has blown out top defenses for 38 points (Giants, Seahawks, and Vikings). The Falcons hardly have a top defense. An improved defense, the creation of a running game, and Rodgers are the reasons I think they have a good shot at winning.
Packers are going to win, Nelson should play.
Are you slow?
