BD: Finally, your predictions for the game?
JM: Green Bay has been lights out at home this season and Aaron Rodgers may be in the biggest zone any quarterback has ever enjoyed. This could setup to be a letdown game after coming off of a huge matchup against the New England Patriots. I don’t see this Green Bay team as a squad to allow a big letdown to happen however.
Davante Adams has emerged as another viable weapon and Richard Rodgers also has a touchdown in back-to-back games. I expect Dom Capers to turn loose the defense and bring the heat on Matt Ryan, in an effort to force turnovers. Atlanta will be missing their warm cozy nest as temperatures will be in the 20’s with snow showers. Packers go heavy run in the second half.
Green Bay Packers 38 – Atlanta Falcons 13
