Packers-Falcons: 10 observations By Matt Williamson Scouts Inc. Green Bay at Atlanta When: 8:00 PM ET Watch: FOX Scouts Inc. Position Advantage QB RB WR OL DL LB DB ST Coach After breaking down film of both teams, Scouts Inc. offers 10 things to watch in this week's Packers-Falcons matchup. 1. Handle a tough place to play: Five of the Packers' six losses came on the road this season, and they have essentially played three playoff games in a row to qualify for the postseason. Now they are operating on a short week. Atlanta lost only one game at home this year and should be quite fresh for this contest. The Falcons were 3-3 against 2010 playoff teams, but they do have a substantial special-teams advantage. Only two teams turned the ball over less than Atlanta. The Falcons were the least-penalized team in the NFL this season, and Green Bay was not far behind. These teams met in Week 12 in Atlanta; the Falcons won 20-17 on a Matt Bryant field goal with nine seconds on the clock. 2. Neutralize Atlanta's defensive line: It doesn't get a lot of publicity, but Atlanta's defensive line is a real handful to deal with. The Falcons use a lot of bodies up front and do a nice job of keeping their guys fresh. John AbrahamKroy Biermann andJonathan Babineaux are excellent players. Jamaal Anderson also is an exceptional run stuffer who has a very prominent role in this rotation. RG Josh Sitton and C Scott Wells are Green Bay's best linemen, but RT Bryan Bulaga is a liability and could be exploited.  The Falcons always look to be the most physical team on the field, and their well-coached offensive line plays with a real nasty streak. Atlanta will use a lot of heavier run-personnel groupings and have good blockers in their skill position players. The Packers have some excellent run defenders in B.J. RajiRyan Pickettand Desmond Bishop. Raji in particular has been nearly unblockable. 10. Matchup to watch: Falcons RB Michael Turner versus Packers run defense: Turner doesn't offer a lot in the pass game, but he is the foundation of Atlanta's offense and can wear down the opponent. Turner has put the ball on the ground lately, but he doesn't have a long history of fumbles. Jason Snelling is also one of the best backup running backs in the league and should see plenty of action as well. The Falcons are better running to their right. Prediction Green Bay 27 Atlanta 24
