Packers-Falcons Score Update: Matt Bryant Opens Up Proceedings To Lead 3-0

A personal foul penalty on Harvey Dahl forced Atlanta out of field goal range on third down but Matt Ryan was able to find Michael Jenkins to set up a field goal to get some points.

Atlanta started things with a nice drive to set the tone as Ryan hooked up with Roddy White for a couple of first downs. Also Michael Turner was running efficiently towards the left side which is surprising to say the least (Sam Baker isn’t a notorious run blocker).

Keep your eyes on Clay Matthews though so far it appears the Falcons front line has done a decent job of keeping Matt Ryan upright as he himself has manipulated the pocket to pick up key first downs.

Atlanta’s defense however is key to today’s matchup. If they can’t stop Aaron Rodgers and his high powered offense we can say so long to a win. So keep an eye on that too.
