If the Falcons want to hold on to the NFC South this week, they need to be prepared to beat one of the NFC's best teams on the road in front of a national audience. It's a tall order, though not an impossible one.
Naturally, victory here will come down to stopping Aaron Rodgers, putting together an effective offensive game plan and make very few mistakes. If Matt Ryan is dealing to Julio Jones and his receivers and the Falcons can continue their opportunistic ways on defense—11 interceptions in 6 weeks is nothing to sneeze about, you have to admit—the Falcons certainly have a shot. I'm keeping my expectations low, nonetheless.
Let's hope the Falcons can pull off a stunner in this one. Here's all the information for Monday night's game.
