My only disappointment is that we're not going to Seattle. I wanted the Packers to right the wrong from 2 years ago.

Atlanta should be a good game next week. I think the winner may be determined by the turnover ratio (as many games are).

Haha, I have no problem with 88, I was just joking around.

Well in that case, I can play RB.

the over opened at 58.5, which is just silly. it's still sitting at 60, which is also just dumb. i imagine it'll go up some more from here and probably settle in the 63-65 range, with the spread being 2.5 at kick off.

but right now... Green Bay +4, +170 money line and over 60 have all been hammered by this guy.

Trying not to be overconfident going into the week. Atlanta is for real. Not sure Matt Ryan can match Rodgers at his best though.

I think whichever defense makes one stop may win that game. Has the makings of 42-38.

Oh I think it'll be a close game, no doubt. I could easily see Atlanta winning, or the game being decided on a last second Field Goal... Which is why Green Bay +4 is so enticing from a gambling stand point.

Both defenses are bad (GB mainly due to 3 of 4 starting DB's on IR), and both offenses/QB's are clicking . Should be a shootout of epic proportions.
Watch it be 3-0.

If you needed any further evidence of how important the QB position is in today's NFL, this final 4 should solidify things.

I don't know how Green Bay of all teams stops that Atlanta offense when no one has all year, whereas I've seen the Packers' relatively one dimensional approach be slowed on a number of occasions this season and Atlanta's defense has improved enough to challenge them. I think they get the necessary stop or two that Dallas couldn't and edges out a win in a shootout. The Packers just aren't healthy enough to be the favorites here. 35-30 Atlanta sounds about right.

Meanwhile, the Steelers have their work cut out for them. I think their best chance to beat the Pats was this weekend, that game was really sloppy and the Texans couldn't capitalize because Osweiler is terrible. They should come out much sharper in the championship round and beat a Steelers team that was inconsistent throughout the year but has solidified into a very talented group with a great defense and myriad offensive weapons. Any other situation and they win but this one is brutal. 24-20 Pats.

If it were mid November I'd agree with you. Packers offense just dropped a combined 72 points in the last 7 quarters against 2 really good teams without their #1 WR.

As much flak as I give the Packers D they have shown the ability to bend and not break, giving up 3 instead of 7.

I didn't say they would get shut down or anything, just that it's more likely the Falcons get a key stop than the Packers.

It'll probably be a game decided by who gets the ball last.

That Seahawks game sure put a damper on my housewarming party.

But Packers. PACKERS!

Unfortunately for you, Mike McCarthy looks like he has the under.

Based on the week the Packers have had, this is about what I was expecting....
