Packers Will Win By 3
The Falcons are a different challenge than the Bears, so don’t anticipate another blowout victory. Atlanta demonstrated an aggressive defense in their opener, focused on confusing quarterbacks and putting pressure on them. This will pose significant challenges for Love, and he’s likely to encounter some difficulties as a result.
On the offensive front, the Falcons’ approach is somewhat reminiscent of the Bears in that they prefer shorter, safer passes to limit their reliance on their quarterback’s downfield throws. They extensively utilized screens and short passes in Week 1 to quickly get the ball out of Ridder’s hands. The Packers’ defense performed reasonably well against a similar style of offense when facing Chicago and will likely continue to do so.
In the end, the Packers should manage to secure a victory by a narrow margin of three points. Anders Carlson will likely nail the go-ahead field goal in the fourth quarter, and the defense will hold its ground to preserve the win.
