That loss 2½ months ago to the Falcons began a four-game skid for the Packers that dropped them to 4-6. Aaron Rodgers insisted he didn't think Green Bay was done, and look at it now: eight consecutive victories and a second NFC title game in three years.
Matt Ryan and Atlanta are also on an impressive run, winning five games in a row by scoring at least 33 points each time — and he has 14 TD passes and zero interceptions in that span.
"They are good at what they do," Packers linebacker Nick Perry said. "We are going to look at the film and go over it and make sure we prevent as much as we can of those ... explosive plays."
This could be another high-scoring game, with players such as Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams causing problems for a pair of defenses that are not all that special.
The Falcons led the NFL in scoring. Even so, they know it won't be easy to keep up with the scoring pace set by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
