NFL game of the week: Packers vs. Falcons

Steelers/NFL Videos

By Pittsburgh The Tribune-Review
Sunday, Nov. 28, 2010
 

Green Bay Packers (7-3) at Atlanta Falcons (8-2)

ATLANTA QB MATT RYAN AND WR RODDY WHITE

There hasn't been a better combination in the league this year. White has had more than 100 yards receiving in five of Atlanta's 10 games and is second in the league with 1,017 yards. Ryan has thrown for 2,500 yards and 18 touchdowns. Atlanta is 5-0 when White catches a touchdown pass

GREEN BAY CB CHARLES WOODSON

The defending Defensive Player of the Year is having another solid season shutting down the opposition. Teams aren't testing Woodson much this year and that's why his interceptions and pass defenses are down. He has only two picks compared to his nine last season, but he still has shut-down capabilities at age 34.

ADVANTAGE: RYAN AND WHITE

The combination of Ryan-to-White did quite well against Woodson two years ago in Lambeau Field. Ryan threw for 194 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and White had 132 yards and a touchdown in a 24-21 win. The Packers are allowing more than 200 yards and a touchdown pass per game.
