Packers vS. Falcons live stream. Packers vs. Falcons: Fascinating Four for Week 2, Packers vs. Falcons Q&A: Atlanta offense ‘safer and less dynamic’ under Steve Sarkisian
The highly-anticipated home opener is finally here. Under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be on display for the NFC Championship rematch. It’s an excellent test for the Falcons following a flat showing against Chicago. I think Dontari Poe is a vital new piece. He quietly led the team in pressures in Week 1, per Pro Football Focus, and the way he both occupies blockers and bullies past them can’t be overstated.
Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers will need to figure out how to get more pressure on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who was pressured on only 12 of his 40 dropbacks in the NFC Championship game. The Green Bay Packers are a team heavily reliant on their young players. If Atlanta is able to attack the right side of Green Bay’s line like Seattle did, Rodgers will be in big trouble again.
The first is that Steve Sarkisian is unlikely to use pre-snap motion and play action as much as Kyle Shanahan did. Those were bread and butter-type staples of the 2016 offense and were very effective, but under Sark, the Falcons used limited play action and not nearly as much frenetic motion.
