The Green Bay Packers are riding an eight-game winning streak and playing as well as anyone in the NFL playoffs. But, they are facing one of the league’s most dynamic offenses in the Atlanta Falcons.
These two teams met in October, combining to score 65 points. Expect to see at least that many points scored this time around in the NFC Championship Game. While Aaron Rodgers is playing at a historic level, the Packers injuries on both sides of the ball will come back to haunt them.
This game will come down to the last possession and don’t be surprised if it ends with the Packers watching the confetti fall and the Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and his teammate celebrating a trip to the Super Bowl.
Prediction: Falcons 34, Packers 31
