The key to stopping the Packers? It’s as simple and complex as stopping Aaron Rodgers

The key to stopping the Packers? It’s as simple and complex as stopping Aaron Rodgers

Fail to stop Rodgers, though, and...well, you know. The best way for Atlanta to win this Conference Championship Game is obvious, and I alluded to it this morning. It’s stopping Aaron Rodgers. The problem with that very simple solution is that it’s also insanely difficult to pull off. Over his last 11 games, Rodgers has thrown 24 touchdowns and one single, solitary interception, which came last week against the Cowboys. He’s been hit and sacked plenty of times behind that makeshift offensive line, but the Packers have still won all 11 of those games, which points to just how good...

Cheese Curds, 1/19: Nelson discusses his rib injury, Rodgers on big hands

Cheese Curds, 1/19: Nelson discusses his rib injury, Rodgers on big hands

Green Bay needs to avoid turnovers on Sunday as they have done recently, and they have a secret weapon in doing so. As the Green Bay Packers have won eight straight games, winning the turnover battle has been a critical factor. The team is +16 in that category over their streak, with Aaron Rodgers throwing just a single interception - which happened on Sunday in Dallas. One of the other quiet improvements that Rodgers has made is not only his ball security when he throws, but also when he's running or being hit. Rodgers has been credited with eight total fumbles this season, four of which...

2017 NFL Draft prospect profile: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

2017 NFL Draft prospect profile: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

Could the Giants select another UCLA Bruin? An injury to Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie revealed a weakness in the New York Giants’ defense against the Green Bay Packers. While lesser quarterbacks might not have been able to exploit it, Aaron Rodgers was able to pick on and expose the coverage of Trevin Wade and Coty Sensabaugh on the slot receiver. While it might not be as pressing as many of the Giants’ needs, upgrading the depth of their secondary and increasing competition could only help their defense. The last two years the Giants have selected a player out of UCLA. In 2015 it was...

Falcons vs. Packers Championship Round: Biggest storylines

A list of the biggest storylines heading into Sunday. Staying balanced, somehow flustering Aaron Rodgers, and the cornerback group are featured. The stakes couldn’t be higher for the final game inside the Georgia Dome. The Falcons continued their hot streak in convincing fashion last Saturday. To avenge a loss in a high pressure situation was crucial for them. Besides the first drive, they were in complete control against Seattle. They need to remain composed against another battle tested opponent, who hasn’t missed the playoffs since 2008. Only New England is more experienced when it...

Here’s the AFC & NFC Championship Games schedule for today

Plan your day accordingly, if you haven’t already. In case you somehow forgot today’s schedule—you didn’t forget the early game, because if you did, you’re not a Falcons fan and I don’t know how you wound up on this website, anyways, if you did forget—here it is. The early game pits the Falcons against the Packers. Atlanta’s home, pretty healthy, and on fire, while Green Bay rides a huge winning streak and Aaron Rodgers into the matchup. I expect it to be close, but the way this Falcons team has been playing, I’m hoping they can make me seem foolish for that. On the AFC...

Falcons defense vs. Packers offense: who wins?

We all think we know how this matchup will turn out. Could the Falcons defense surprise us? Maybe? This Sunday, the two hottest offenses in the NFL meet in Atlanta for the NFC Championship. The Green Bay Packers have been on fire since Aaron Rodgers said the team would run the table and have gone 8-0 in that span behind some absolutely stellar play from Aaron Rodgers, and the Atlanta Falcons have been on fire all season due to the elite play of Matt Ryan and the versatility the team has shown in attacking opposing defenses. Whenever two offenses like this meet, it usually means bad things...

The most important information for the most important game of the year thus far. For just the fourth time in franchise history, these Atlanta Falcons will play for the chance to head to the Super Bowl. This is, if we’re looking at the season they’ve had, one of the best shots they’ve ever had, and perhaps ever will. Their opponent is tough and has Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, and I do believe this game will wind up being close and possibly decided in Green Bay’s favor. But we’re also talking about an insanely motivated Falcons team with the best offense in the NFL and home field...

We have reached the final four in the 2016 NFL season. I’m not sure that we necessarily have the four best teams from this season still in the hunt, but with apologies to some of the other great passers in the league, I do think we have the four best quarterbacks playing today. Atlanta and Green Bay kick off the action at 3:00 p.m. Eastern on FOX. It should be a shootout. Atlanta has had the NFL’s best offense all season long, while the Packers have the hottest quarterback in the league, Aaron Rodgers. The last team to have the ball might win that one.

Davante Adams (ankle) unable to practice for Packers on Wednesday

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. What It Means: Adams was injured late in Sunday's Divisional Round win over the Dallas Cowboys, but was able to return after being helped to the sidelined. If Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Adams both sit, then the Packers' top pass-catchers in the NFC Championship Game will be Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Jeff Janis, Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers. Wide receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery may also see some more targets. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he doesn't believe Adams will practice until...

NFL-Packers play waiting game over wide receivers Nelson, Adams

The Green Bay Packers face major question marks over the fitness of wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams as they prepare for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Falcons in Atlanta. Nelson, a four-time Pro Bowl selection and the league's receiving touchdowns leader in 2016, has been sidelined by broken ribs since Jan. 8 while Adams injured his ankle during the fourth quarter of last week's divisional playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys.

Packers, Falcons set to give Georgia Dome explosive sendoff

The Georgia Dome's final game could fittingly be an explosive one with the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers poised to blow the roof off the place when the NFL's most potent offenses clash on Sunday for a berth in the Super Bowl. With Atlanta's Matt Ryan and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers leading supercharged offences against leaky defenses, Las Vegas bookmakers have set a record high "over-under" -- or the total combined points scored -- for a playoff contest at 60 points. When both teams met in the regular season Atlanta won 33-32 after Ryan tossed a last-minute touchdown and many expect...
