The throw he made to set up the winning field goal in Dallas will go down as one of the most awesome plays in postseason history.
Nelson reportedly didn’t suffer any major internal injuries against the Giants, but the source told ESPN.com that it would be hard for the Pro Bowl wideout to play just two weeks after breaking ribs.
Ticket Down is a reputable source of authentic Falcons vs. Packers NFC Conference Championship tickets at the Georgia Dome on Sunday, January 22nd.
Rodgers has been playing at an incredible level of late, so perhaps there will be no slowing him down with a trip to Super Bowl LI in Houston on the line. The Packers were up 21-3 halfway through the second quarter, but were outscored 28-13 the rest of the way. Nelson led the league in catches, receiving yards and touchdown receptions during the final eight weeks of the regular season, but he has missed the majority of the playoffs with broken ribs.
The Falcons don’t give it away much, either, as likely MVP QB Matt Ryan has thrown just seven interceptions this season, which is either half or less than half of his single-season totals each of the last four years.
“In the spirit of community pride I am putting my faith in the Green Bay Packers, the only publicly owned franchise in all of sports”, said Streckenbach. Ryan narrowly bested Rodgers, ultimately surpassing him in the process for MVP consideration. The Falcons offense has just been historically good this season. “He plans on bringing Future Jr.to the next playoff game and wants his son to support the Falcons and be part of the winning squad with a phenomenal quarterback as they make a run for the Super Bowl”, the source told Hollywood Life.
Spencer Ware’s 1-yard touchdown run took Kansas City within 18-16.
The Packers have made it this far, but do they have enough to beat Atlanta? For what it’s worth, the Packers were held scoreless in four series with Nelson in the wild-card playoffs, and they’ve scored on 12 of their 19 possessions since then.
Last-minute airfares will be more of a cost challenge for Packers fans than game tickets. Because of that, they were able to play at home against the Seattle Seahawks and they now get to host the NFC Championship game. Their first appearance was in 1995 at Dallas – a loss for the Packers. The game will be broadcast live on FOX. Green Bay’s hot streak has been the exception. Aaron Rodgers threw 4 touchdowns, but Matt Ryan had the last laugh as his 3rd touchdown on the day, an 11 yard strike to Sanu with 31 seconds left, sealed the victory for Atlanta.
The NFC Championship should be another dual, as both quarterbacks have been invaluable to their teams this season. Can this Sunday repeat the quality of last Sunday’s matchups?
Quarterback Russell Wilson endured some serious challenges to once again prove he is among the best players at his position in the league. Vic Beasley and the Falcons front 7 have to put Pressure on Aaron Rodgers and keep his completions downfield to a minimum average and force third and long situations. The game will be played on a fast track, which is why I still think the offenses will rule.
