Pack­ers at Fal­cons, 8:30

Tampa Bay Times - - Nfl | Golf -

Line/OU: Fal­cons by 3; 56

The last time they faced off in At­lanta, the Fal­cons routed the Pack­ers for the NFC ti­tle. The site will be dif­fer­ent tonight as the Fal­cons play their first reg­u­lar-sea­son game in Mercedes Benz Sta­dium. Con­sid­er­ing how poorly Green Bay played in Jan­uary at the Georgia Dome, it prob­a­bly wel­comes the change of venue. “It’s past,” Pack­ers QB Aaron Rodgers in­sists. “You can’t re­write his­tory. It’s just two 1-0 teams who both think we can be there at the end of the sea­son.” Green Bay com­pletely shut down Seattle last week. At­lanta strug­gled with lowly Chicago be­fore a goal-line stand, helped by a dropped TD pass, al­lowed it to sur­vive. And ap­par­ently, the roof will even be open for the first time dur­ing a game, so the Fal­cons will play their first open-air home game since 1991’s sea­son fi­nale at Ful­ton-County Sta­dium.
