    Looks like this is going to be a good game. The Falcons will win if Rodgers is out. If Rodgers plays then I give the edge to the Packers if he stays healthy against the Falcons' pass rush.

    If they're minus Rodgers, the Packers will need the running game to really step up. If Grant & Jackson can get 125-150 yds. it will keep the pressure off Flynn to carry the team by passing.
    The Falcons will probably run on the Packers like everybody with any semblence of a backfield has done this season. But if the defense can stiffen in the red zone and not give up td's, the yardage totals won't matter as much.
    The Packers must bring heat on rookie qb Matt Ryan and get at least a 4-5 sack game in and pick off 2-3 throws. Returning one for a score would be a nice bonus.
    Special teams will be big in this one. Keeping the Falcons from getting good field position to start their drives will be essential. Returning a kick for a score may be necessary for the Packers.
