NFL Playoff Schedule Packers Vs. Falcons First Quarter 7-0 Atlanta

Welcome the SBN Chicago updates for the NFC Divisional Playoff game with the Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons, at the Georgia Dome. The noise inside the dome is deafening, as the Falcons faithful are enjoying their first post-season game since 2005.

A stirring rendition of the National Anthem is delivered by some good old boys who have stained their beards for the occasion.

The Falcons receive and will start at their 20 yard line. Matt Ryan goes incomplete on a quick slant to Roddy White, but the pair convert on third down. A combination of Michael Turner runs, and Roddy White receptions and the Falcons cross midfield. They stall on the Packers 45, and they'll punt.

The Packers and Aaron Rodgers will start from their own 11 yard line. James Starks loses three yards on first down.  an incomplete, and their backed up quickly on third down. A completion to a streaking Greg Jennings looks to be a huge gain, but he fumbles, and Atlanta recovers.

The Falcons start just inside Packers territory, a Michael Turner run, and a Michael Jenkins catch, and they're inside the 25.

On second down the Packers defense storms in on a blitz, and Clay Matthews wraps up Ryan. White gets close and on fourth and inches, they go for it. Ovie Mughelli gets just enough, and they move the chains. Michael Turner refuses to go down in the next play, and he spins into the end zone.

7-0 Falcons

With five minutes left Atlanta will kick. James Starks takes it out of the end zone, but can't cross the 20 yard line. An offsides penalty and a couple James Starks runs, and the Packers get a first. Brandon Jackson follows with a 14 yard rush up the middle. Green Bay keeps it on the ground, then gets a first on a screen to John Kuhn. The first quarter ends with consecutive passes to Donald Driver, and Greg Jennings, the Packers are driving.

7-0 Falcons
