The Packers were able to grind out a solid win over the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday, winning 37-30. Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 283 yards on 32 attempts. Rodgers ended up with a passer rating of 124.90.
Special teams collected 13 points for Green Bay. Kicker K Mason Crosby delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, Atlanta didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 30-26 to the Chicago Bears this past Sunday. Atlanta was up 26-10 at the end of the third quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Their loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of RB Todd Gurley, who punched in one rushing touchdown, and RB Brian Hill, who punched in one rushing touchdown. Hill had had trouble finding his footing against the Dallas Cowboys two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
The Packers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
Green Bay’s victory brought them up to 3-0 while the Falcons’ defeat pulled them down to a reciprocal 0-3. Two numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Green Bay has yet to throw a single interception. As for Atlanta, they enter the game with six forced fumbles, which is the best in the NFL.
