The Falcons always seem to score when it counts, so perhaps this particular series is losing its luster. There is still much to be learned, though, so pull up a chair and we'll run down the Packers game.

Basically, the Falcons made it to the red zone only three times against a tough Green Bay defense. In those three opportunities, they had Matt Bryant boot a field goal, Matt Ryan throw a short touchdown pass and Michael Turner run one in. Thanks to my calculator, we know that the Falcons averaged a pretty good five points on those three possessions.

That's better than against the Ravens and Rams, when the Falcons contented themselves with field goals a little too often for my taste. It's not a touchdown every time, but one can't be too greedy. Unless your name is Greedo. Then it's acceptable.
