Packers Versus Falcons Recap | Packers Tickets From Ticket King Green Bay

Packers versus Falcons Racap
The 2013 season for the Green Bay Packers has been nothing short of a wild ride. That wild ride got a lot more interesting on Sunday when the Lions had a major 4th quarter meltdown in Philadelphia, resulting in a loss, and the Packers actually won a game without Rodgers. It's a miracle! With that said, here is what we liked and didn’t like about Sunday’s game in Lambeau Field.

What We Liked- We liked the play of Matt Flynn. For the first time since Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, the Packers got consistent play from the quarterback position, for an entire game. The “for an entire game” part is key. The Packers have had spurts were they have moved the ball well, but nothing for the course of an entire game until Sunday. Flynn finished the game 24-32, for 258 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Nothing great, nothing bad, just solid. Kept the curtain from falling down.

We liked the play of Andrew Quarless. In the absence of Rodgers, Quarless stepped up and helped out Flynn. Quarless finished the game with six catches for 66 yards and caught Flynn’s lone touchdown pass. We liked how the Packers as a team minimized the penalties. When a team is without their one irreplaceable player, they need to play efficient football. The Packers did just that, committing just two penalties for 10 yards. We liked the play of the defense overall. For the first time since the Rodgers injury, they were able to implement a “bend but don’t break” strategy during the course of a game.

What We Didn’t Like- Even though the defense played well, we didn’t like how they played at the very end of the game. Had it not been for drops by the Falcons pass catchers, most notably one of the best sets of hands in NFL history, tight end Tony Gonzales, the Packers might have lost that game. The Falcons pass catchers had several crucial drops late that would have put them well within field goal range and would have made us all sour this week. We didn’t like the play of Eddie Lacy. In fact, Lacy hasn’t done much since Rodgers got injured. The Packers final three games are at Dallas, at home against Pittsburgh, and at Chicago.
