NFC Divisional Playoff Open Thread: Packers at Falcons

New, comments

Kickoff is at 6:00 pm MST (8:00 pm EST) on FOX.

The Green Bay Packers will come to the Georgia Dome and play the Atlanta Falcons for the second time this season. The first meeting between these teams happened in week 12 in Atlanta and saw the Falcons arise victorious, 20-17. With the game tied at 17 all, late in the fourth quarter, the Packers kicked off to Eric Weems who sprinted upfield and was dragged down by the facemask. After tacking on the penalty yardage, the Falcons started their final drive in Green Bay territory and Matt Ryan completed 4 short completions to set the Falcons up with a game winning field goal.

It was a very close and exciting regular season game, but today's game has much bigger implications. The winner will move on to the NFC Championship game, another step closer to the Lombardi Trophy. You don't want to miss this game.
