The Green Bay Packers and the Atlanta Falcons are two teams trending in completely opposite directions. Aaron Rodgers has already thrown for 887 yards through just three games, and at 37 he is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Falcons, on the other hand, are coming off of back-to-back defeats in stunning fashion. Atlanta blew a 20-0 lead over the Cowboys, becoming the first team in NFL history to lose a game in which they scored 39 points and committed no turnovers, per Elias Sports. Then, the Falcons lost to Nick
Foles and the Bears, after Foles replaced Mitchell Trubisky.
Head coach Dan Quinn is likely on the hot seat in Atlanta, but unfortunately for Quinn, the match up against Rodgers and the Packers is a tall task.
Rodgers is off to an MVP-type start to the season, and he could have another big day against an Atlanta team that is reeling from two tough defeats. Here are three bold predictions for Rodgers’ performance against the Falcons.
