The Green Bay Packers added to their lead with a 43-yard field goal from Mason Crosby and are up on the Atlanta Falcons, 45-21 in the fourth quarter. Crosby had missed a 50-yard attempt moments earlier but the Falcons turned the ball over for the third time giving the Packers excellent field position. On the turnover, Matt Ryan appeared to try a quarterback sneak but the offensive line was all pass blocking and Ryan’s handle on the ball was lost.
The Packers have 27 first downs to only 15 for the Falcons and have gained 424 yards to only 191 for Atlanta. This is not the way the Falcons envisioned this game but it’s been a Murphy’s Law situation with everything that could go wrong, going wrong.
It’s also a sad day for Tony Gonzalez who’s playoff winless streak continues.
