The Falcons get a golden opportunity to seize a real lead in the NFC South tonight, but they'll have to go through arguably the best team in the NFC to do so.
The Packers will present a stiff challenge, but the Falcons shouldn't have any problem finding motivation given the stakes in this one. If they can overcome the road challenge, the cold and the quality of the opponent, we could all be pretty jubilant tomorrow morning.
All of this remains unlikely, but hope springs eternal. If nothing else, I hope this is a close, enjoyable game for us all.
