Atlanta Falcons vs Packers: Week 2 Staff predictions

Green Bay Packers Impact Players to Watch in Week Two

Tom Oates: Surprise cut of CB LaDarius Gunter signals new philosophy for Packers

"So we've got to hopefully see where he is tomorrow and, but just speaking with Bryan this morning when he came in, you know, he was dehydrated and things like that".

"Having the city and the connection that they have to the team, we enjoy that", he said.

"It's not about targets, catches, yards, things like that", Jones said. Clay is moving around again from the outside linebacker position and playing a key role in Green Bay's pass rush, while Jake is responsible for protecting Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's blind side at the crucial left tackle spot. More tellingly, he's still taking steps toward that end less than a week away from the Packers-Falcons rematch, which will take place Sunday night at brand-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Gunter isn't even on the roster anymore after the Packers cut him on Tuesday.

As the fines from last weekend's National Football League games began to be revealed Friday, one name was missing - Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane. The Packers won with their defense on Sunday against Seattle, holding the Seahawks to just nine points in a 17-9 victory. "It's all about trying to get better week to week".

"You have to play every play", Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said of the Falcons.

Q: How are the Packers doing after that big win over Seattle? . Perhaps the best way to stop him is to pressure Matt Ryan so he can't find Jones way downfield.

The Packers' increased speed comes from several sources.

In addition, Green Bay signed veteran Davon House in free agency and used a second-round draft choice on 6-foot-3 corner Kevin King. Disappointing holdovers Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, slowed by groin injuries last season, are healthy again and playing faster. The Packers - who finished 31st in passing defense a year ago - had to use undrafted LaDarius Gunter as their No. 1 cornerback, and Gunter was asked to shadow Pro Bowl wideout Julio Jones all day. (The Seahawks combined for just 90 rushing yards.) So much for "Beast Mode 2.0" Eddie Lacy, who rushed for a pathetic three yards on five attempts against his former team on Sunday. "I don't know what I need to do to get you to believe it". And the roof will be open, which has generated more excitement than you'd think for some odd reason.

While Nelson's surgically repaired right knee appeared to be full strength against the Falcons in the NFC title game, he had missed the previous week's NFC divisional win over Dallas because of the rib injury he suffered in the NFC wild card round against the New York Giants. Atlanta is unveiling its new stadium and will be looking to start the season 2-0 after defeating the Chicago Bears 23-17 in Week one. He also showcased his skills as a receiver with four catches for 39 yards. He was overthrowing or completely missing receivers throughout the game. The NFL official injury report still lists him as questionable.

"It's my quarterback", Bennett said after the game. "I'm sure they're sick of coming down here". The Falcons had four sacks last week against the Bears, and if they do that against Green Bay, they'll have an excellent chance to win.
