PACKERS TOP FALCONS AT LAMBEAU FIELD
- The Packers improved to 6-6-1 on the season with a 22-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon. Including playoffs, Green Bay has won three straight games against Atlanta.

- For Green Bay, it marked its 13th consecutive regular-season home win in December/January, the longest current home winning streak in the league in games played Dec. 1 or later. The Packers improved to 16-5 overall in the regular season in December/January since 2009.

- The Packers didn’t allow any points in the second half, their first time doing so since Dec. 2, 2012, vs. Minnesota.

- It was the Packers’ first one-point win since their 28-27 victory over New Orleans last season at Lambeau Field in Week 4.

- The Packers will go on the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday at 3:25 p.m. (CST) at AT&T Stadium. This will be the first matchup between Green Bay and Dallas at the stadium and the Packers’ first game at the Cowboys since 2007.
