Last week’s win against the New England Patriots was a massive victory for the Green Bay Packers. There is no doubting that fact, but it’ll mean nothing should they can’t follow it up with a gain within the 5-7, but division-leading, Atlanta Falcons.
The might be a classic letdown game against an explosive offense with a great deal to lose. While Week 14?s matchup remains a big game for the Packers, it’s even a bigger game for the Falcons as their margin for error is minimal. The Packers better be ready for the Falcons’best shot on Monday night.
Everything is in the Packers’favor entering the game. It’s in Lambeau Field where in actuality the Packers are undefeated and Aaron Rodgers is almost unbeatable. Additionally, the Falcons’defense has been rather underwhelming this season. They rank last in pass defense, allowing nearly 285 yards through the air. That is simply because of young, smaller corners. Rodgers and company should manage to take advantage of the porous Falcons secondary, which should cause a simple win.
If for reasons uknown the Falcons power down the Packers’ passing game, The Packers can always look for Eddie Lacy. The Falcons are allowing 118 yards per game on the ground. Things are shaping up to one-sided Packers victory. Everything is inside their favor, but this is the NFL.
The Packers still have plenty to play for in 2014. They want home-field advantage through the entire playoffs, and they don’t really want traveling to Seattle or Philadelphia. Green Bay cannot afford a letdown game against a powerful Falcons passing game on Monday night. If the Packers continue to play the way they have all season long, then they will walk away with a win.
