If you thought Green Bay would be in this game in late October raise your hand….OK no one, aside from the Packers slappies of course. What ARodg and his Packers have done is nothing short of amazing and it has simply shown just how unreal a QB Rodgers is. This was a team that was left for dead and now has a great chance to get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since they won it all in 2010.

Atlanta on the other hand has been the epitome of disappointment over the past 10 plus years, with many teams good enough to win it all, but always falling short. This Falcons team has it all though. Yes the D isn’t the NFL’s best unit, but it is athletic and deep enough to go along with an offense that is almost unstoppable, just as Seattle. This is going to be an absolute shootout and will likely come down to who has the ball last.

I picked Atlanta to win it all before the Playoffs started and I am not wavering now, but if you think I am not taking the 5 points with Rodgers and the Pack then you are Kanye West crazy. This will be an NFC title game that will be remembered for a long time as one of these teams that not many gave much of a chance this preseason will be heading to Houston and Super Bowl LI. It is going to be Atlanta, but it will be by the slimmest of margins. Both Matty Ice and Rodgers are going to put on a show and you simply don’t want to miss it if you love football as much as I do!
