Falcons face a big test in Green Bay Sunday

And a swelling-reducing glove may help rookie Don Jackson contribute, too. But Ty Montgomery has taken over this backfield, and trade acquisition Knile Davis should have a better grip of the playbook.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the plan is for his veteran linebacker to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday.

"There's definitely some similarities (to Kansas City's playbook)". That being said, as always, you should be rooting against any team within the division.

Crosby sparks comeback in season debut
Sidney Crosby scored in his return to the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Crosby had looked off the pace as the Panthers moved into an early 2-0 lead through Reilly Smith and Mark Pysyk.

That's not the type of track meet the Packers want to enter Sunday, considering they have reached 30 points only once this season with a 21st-ranked offense that has sputtered too much when points are for the taking. He's a natural football player, someone that's played a lot of football, was successful obviously in college, and he's been in the league.

"[Knile] is progressing very well". It's going to involve protection; they'll give a good pressure package. "The trainers, they're pretty optimistic about it". Probably. But it's in the same joking way that my man Brett Hundley called me "Grandpa" three weeks ago on the field when we were doing a competitive drill. It's already taken, I think, a dramatic leap from Sunday till now.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is known for his ability to make plays while scrambling, and the Falcons will look to limit his production in this area. "It's going to be definitely a team game to try to stop him because he's a great player".

The official mourning period in the country will be 1 year, with flags flying at half-mast for the next 30 days. Residents have been asked to wear black and avoid engaging in "festivities" for 30 days, according to Reuters .

Rodgers said the momentum from that game can't be carried over into this game, but the offense is feeling much better about things after piling up 406 yards and controlling the ball for nearly 40 minutes against Chicago.

Before Jones rolled the Panthers, his best career game was an 11-catch 259-yard masterpiece against the Packers in 2014. It's unclear how soon he'll return.

On the Falcons' side, they're coming in with a 4-3 record this year and have lost their last two games. Which is hard, but really it just puts a little more pressure on us to get after the quarterback, make him uncomfortable, be a little disruptive so that way we can take the rhythm passing game they have, and take them off the spot a little bit. Here is the link to the highlights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnDoeM4JmL0 I checked who is still on the roster who was on that team, and the list is short: Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Starks, Sam Shields* (IR, may be done with Packers), Mason Crosby, Clay Matthews, Morgan Burnett, Bryan Bulaga, TJ Lang.
