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.

 

OTHER POST-GAME NOTES:
- Today’s paid attendance was 77,550. It was the 318th consecutive sellout (300 regular season, 18 playoffs) at Lambeau Field.

- The Packers’ 18-play TD drive in the first quarter on Sunday was their longest TD drive in terms of plays since a 19-play drive vs. Chicago on Sept. 19, 2004.

- With 10 points on the afternoon, K Mason Crosby brought his career scoring total to 880 points. That is the most by a player in league history in his first seven seasons, topping the previous mark of 874 points by Colts K Mike Vanderjagt from 1998-2004.

- RB Eddie Lacy’s 1-yard TD run in the first quarter was his seventh rushing TD of the season. That is the most by a Green Bay rookie in a season, topping Samkon Gado’s mark of six rushing TDs in 2005.

- With 20 rushing attempts on the afternoon, Lacy now has 227 carries for the season, the most by a rookie in franchise history (John Brockington, 216, 1971).

- With 85 yards on four receptions against the Falcons, WR Jordy Nelson brought his season receiving total to 1,046 yards. It is the second 1,000-yard receiving season of his career (1,263 in 2011).

- With a 46-yard reception on Sunday, Nelson now has 15 catches of 25-plus yards this season. That is one shy of the most by a Packer in a season since 1994 (Nelson, 16 in 2011; WR Greg Jennings, 16 in 2010).

- TE Andrew Quarless posted a career-high 66 receiving yards on a career-best six catches. His previous highs in both categories (five receptions, 62 yards) came at Detroit on Dec. 12, 2010. Quarless’ 2-yard TD grab in the fourth quarter was the second TD catch of his career.

- QB Matt Flynn connected on 24 of 32 passes on the afternoon, a 75.0 completion percentage that was his career high (min. 10 attempts).

- Flynn’s 17-yard run in the second quarter was the longest run of his career.

- P Tim Masthay’s 62-yard punt in the fourth quarter was his longest of the season and his longest since a 65-yarder vs. Jacksonville on Oct. 28, 2012.

- DE/LB Mike Neal’s forced fumble on a fourth-quarter sack was his first since Oct. 3, 2010, vs. Detroit.

- DT Johnny Jolly registered his first fumble recovery since Nov. 1, 2009, vs. Minnesota.

    What the heck is wrong with you! when you hit the bottom you are starting to head up do not dive. The only limits are the ones you place on yourself.

    Really? Fans… I’ve heard your Go Pack Go, and I’ve seen your rants and the boos the very time the players needed you. Wow. I don’t know what to say. At work I can’t write back, and I just have radio as I do work the weekends, but I have heard things that would make even your head spin this season. You think Lombardi would roll over in any grave? Wow… You got something wrong, because it’s not about the players in this town, its not about the plays. Its about the hype. Here though, its simply called hope. So fire the D line, Capers, MM, TT, Ellen, the Duke boys and anyone you feel isn’t standing up to your expectations at this point in time. But what I’m about to say will amaze you. The Green Bay Packers will win, maybe not today or tomorrow, but they will always win for you!

    Sorry, for all the past comments that I want to avoid, but I do know that my last comment will get scrutinized, so I do believe there are weakness in defense, duh? And offense line is hurting. Ok, I’ll rant. Corners should step closer, maybe bump to run, insides should close the slant whenever they see it, 3rd and longs should be blitzed, 3rd and shorts should be blitzed as well, in a different way, man and zone coverage don’t mix in any way shape or form in the same scheme of play at all… So, I hope my stupid side line coaching helped your depreciated focus on our team make yourselves feel better. Cuz, I know they don’t feel good to some people, no matter what you you think of them….

    I’m a fan, I don’t care if Capers is fired. Not my problem. I’m a fan, I don’t care if the special teams coach is fired. Are you getting to where I’m going with this? Are you understanding I don’t care what people believe on 3-4 to 4-3 schemes? Because, this thing, first and last time, is my team. This team has brought me through the cold of winter more times than I have fingers and toes. So you want to fire anyone, fire a fan that doesn’t care about the other fans. Fire a fan that believes in his team, fire a fan who wishes only the warmest of winters yet to come from his team… Fire me!

    James M.— You were ok at first. You should have quit while you were ahead.
