Falcons Vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers A Challenge, Mike Smith Notes

It's not like Aaron Rodgers is going to be sneaking up on anybody this year but Falcons' coach Mike Smith knows the problems that Aaron Rodgers presents for his team this Sunday. Via the Atlanta Falcons' official Twitter account:

Rodgers is throwing the ball as well as anyone in the league. He's going to be a big challenge for us.

Smith might have a point after Rodgers' six touchdown performance last weekend against the Denver Broncos. Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and ran for another two in the Packers 49-23 victory. Smith is also familiar with Rodgers from the playoff game last year where Rodgers came to Atlanta and torched the Falcons secondary going 31-36 for 366 yards and three touchdowns. Rodgers then went on to lead the Packers to a Super Bowl victory.

The Falcons are sitting at 2-2 on the season and are hoping for a better outcome this time around.
