Packers Vs. Falcons: Rodgers Carving Up Atlanta, Green Bay Ties Score at 14

Can Aaron Rodgers win the game on his own? Just maybe, if that’s what it takes — and it’s looking like that might be just what it takes. Packers running back James Starks is having trouble reprising his success from last week, carrying the ball nine times for 14 yards so far.

No problem. Rodgers is dissecting the Falcons’ secondary, which is doing him plenty of favors along the way. Rodgers missed his second pass out of 15 attempts on the last drive and already has 160 yards on the night. John Kuhn got the one-yard carry for the touchdown on the latest Packers drive, led into the end zone by nose-tackle-turned-fullback B.J. Raji.

As for the Atlanta secondary … The Falcons committed two pass-defense fouls in the red zone on the drive, one a pretty blatant pass interference penalty on Chris Owens on the goal line. With the success that Green Bay is already having on offense, the Falcons really don’t need to help them out.
