The tradition of the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers not coming back from fourth quarter deficits against good teams continues against the Atlanta Falcons, resulting in a few worth memes.
Most of them made fun of Rodgers being hounded all game long by the Falcons defense. He was sacked 3 times, but it felt like a lot more. The Packers offensive line made life easy for the Falcons defense, also scoring one touchdown off a Rodgers turnover.
This might be the best the NFC has to offer right now. The Falcons need to put the Super Bowl behind them, and it seems like they did. Their first week out was against one of the worst teams in the NFL. Looking convincing for most of their encounter against the Packers is a whole other level, suggesting the Falcons have what it takes to go that far again.
For the Packers, this served as a warning sign. They’re a good team, but with a problem in front of Rodgers. This doesn’t count them out of anything, but if they don’t get a grip on their O-line issues, their aspirations this season will once again turn to disappointment.
