Packers Get the Win after a Slow Start

For the first time this year the Green Bay Packers actually looked vulnerable, but unfortunately for the Atlanta Falcons that only lasted a quarter. In the first quarter of Sunday Night’s Game the Falcons put together two long drives that ended in touchdowns, and a 14-0 lead, which would be their only points for the rest of the night.

In the second quarter Rodgers and the offense put together a couple of drives that led to two Mason Crosby field goals. The Packers defense also began to look good stopping the Falcons on consecutive drives and went into the locker room only down 14-6.

Mason Crosby kicked another field goal early in the third quarter, and then the Packers offense really got going. Aaron Rodgers found James Jones running up the seam and completed a 70 yard touchdown pass to him. Then on the first play of the fourth quarter Rodgers hit Jennings who ran across the field and found the end zone for a 29 yard touchdown.

Green Bay’s defense held the Atlanta offense in check the rest of the game and forced Matt Ryan to throw two interceptions to take away any chance for a comeback. The Packers went on to win 25-14

Green Bay is red hot right now and travel back home next week to face what might be the worst team in the NFL, the St. Louis Rams.
