The Green Bay Packers have had trouble stopping the 49ers in their last two meetings. Now they have to try and beat them in the playoffs while facing injury issues on defense.
The Philadelphia Eagles will need their defensive secondary to be on their toes this weekend with Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints in to town with a monster of a passing offense. Fortunately for the Eagles, the defensive backfield is getting healthier in time for the playoffs.
The big question in the Carolina/Atlanta game is exactly where will the Falcons end up on the 2014 NFL Draft position.
With the news that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be out at least one more week with an injury, Atlanta’s chances to win their fourth game of the season just got a lot better.
With only 10 total players listed in this week’s injury report between the Bills and Falcons, it’s time for the starters to show why they were named starters.
With just three days off between games this week, there is certainly no rest for the weary Falcons as they look to face off against their NFC South rival for the second time this season.
As if losing Julio Jones for the rest of the season and Roddy White being used primarily as a decoy due to his nagging injuries wasn’t enough, Atlanta may also have to make due without Tony Gonzalez and Julio’s replacement, Harry Douglas this week against the Tampa Bay Bucs.
The good news for Atlanta is that there are more Seahawks starters listed on this week’s injury report than the total number of Falcons players listed.
After a rough loss to the Cardinals last week, Atlanta will head to Charlotte to take on their third NFC South opponent of the season, the 4-3 Panthers.
For the first time since being drafted in 2005, Falcons Pro Bowl wide receiver Roddy White will miss the first game of his NFL career.
