Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons - NFC Championship Game Picks And Predictions

Tony Romo took a backseat once Dak Prescott dazzled this season

All the powers of Falcons offense were on display against the Seahawks. The Packers quarterback certainly would prefer to have Nelson in the mix, though. Perhaps Ryan's first AP MVP award will soon follow.

"We've won without them before", Rodgers said.

Atlanta's secondary, although susceptible to giving up big plays at times, started to play better as the year went on. He's a good friend. I don't see either of these games coming down to a field goal, so I'm happy to give less than a touchdown and pick my winners. "I don't think he'll practice till Saturday". "And at the end of the day, that's where my focus will be on Sunday".


That drew some laughs throughout the overstuffed media room at Falcons headquarters. Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan are playing sensational football right now.

"It's basically the last step where the average Joe could go see it, because Super Bowl tickets, you're looking at about $5,000 a ticket as opposed to $300 to $800 a ticket", said Travis Loftus the manager of Ticket King. It's not really for me to decide.

"They ran with authority, I thought".

An important side injury to note is that of Falcons' DL Adrian Clayborn, one of the team's leading pass rushers, who will not play this week. "Would it be nice to do all of those things that you mentioned?"

That sounds a lot like their opponent on Sunday at the Georgia Dome.

As of now, people are already speculating that it will either be around $250 like the Wii, or $350 like the Wii U. That means it will be very powerful for a portable gaming device, but not jaw-dropping for a traditional console.

"Matt has a real process that he goes through to get ready, and he has totally nailed that this year", Quinn said.

The Packers last played in the NFC Championship in 2014 at Seattle - a Packers loss to the Seahawks. Dion Lewis also became the first player in a playoff game to record three TD's by different methods (kickoff return, receiving and rushing).

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker have engaged in a friendly wager ahead of the NFC Championship game. His passer rating of 117.1 ranks fifth in National Football League history, and he set an National Football League record by throwing TD passes to 13 players.

If you are a fan of defense this may not be the game for you.

And so despite his stellar regular season numbers, there's a monkey on Ryan's back heading into Conference Championship weekend.

Fresh off of the best statistical season and strongest playoff performance of his career, Ryan is more confident than he's ever been.

The Packers also got good news on starting tackles Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari. Adams' hauled in 12 passes for 74 yards, making the tally 25 receptions in just eight quarters of play.

While Dallas enjoyed a stellar season with two long term finds at important positions at quarterback and RB, they find themselves in the same position as they did past year - their defence remains a star edge rusher away from being able to pressure the opposing quarterback regularly without resorting to blitz packages.
