By Steve Keating Jan 21 (Reuters) - 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 defences, 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...

Davante Adams (ankle) won't guarantee his status for the NFC Championship Game. What It Means: Adams has yet to practice this week and plans on testing his ankle out on Saturday. Assuming he plays, Adams will likely be on a snap count, meaning Randall Cobb should see plenty of targets as one of the few healthy receivers available for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Our models remain fans of Adams for the conference finals, ranking him as the fourth-best fantasy wide receiver with a projection of 5 catches for 64 yards and 0.57 touchdowns versus the Atlanta...

Falcons defense vs. Packers offense: who wins?

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...
