On sunday the Packers will face the Falcons in the Georgia Dome, were the Falcons have only lost 3 of their last 21 games there. It will be interesting to see how the Packers play against one of the best teams in the league. Not only that, the Falcons hold the best record in the NFC (8-2), but the Packers are only one game behind. With a win on Sunday the Packers could be sitting at the top of the NFC. The top seed is very important for the playoffs. You get home field throughout the rounds, and you get a bye in the first round. This is something all Packer players want and are trying hard to get, with all of the injuries they are dealing with right now. The more rest, the better for this injury riddled team.
But lets not get ahead of our selves here. The Packers are still in a close battle for their own division, let alone the entire NFC. They are tied with the Bears, and won’t see them again until the last week of the season. It seems like every one is thinking when are the Bears going to go away. No one,including me, thinks they are as good as the record, but as long as they keep winning games, they won’t go away. It is important for the Pack not to overlook the Bears, and think they will automatically win their division. This race will be a close one and should come down to the end of the season.
