The Green Bay Packers face an uphill battle as they travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in the NFC Championship game on Sunday, in a game that will live stream from the Georgia Dome — the final game ever in that stadium — that will earn the winner a place in the ultimate NFL game, the Super Bowl. Behind future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay has been installed as a six-point underdogs in what projects to be perhaps the highest-scoring contest of this season’s NFL playoffs.
Both teams come into the game with high-flying offenses keyed by their elite quarterbacks — but porous defenses that rank among the worst of the 12 teams that qualified for the NFL Playoffs in 2016. The Falcons defense allowed a whopping 25.4 points per game this season, worst among the playoff teams and a dismal 27th overall in the league.
Meanwhile, the Packers D doesn’t look much better, ranking just 21st in the NFL regarding points allowed, at 24.3 per game.

While a victory would give the Packers a shot at the franchise’s fourth Super Bowl victory — they last won in Super Bowl 45, in the 2010 NFL season — the Falcons have never won a Super Bowl and have appeared in only one since the franchise was founded in 1966.
That lone appearance came in Super Bowl 33, capping off the 1998 season — with Atlanta falling to the Denver Broncos by a lopsided 34-19 score.
In their lone meeting this season, Atlanta came out on top, edging Green Bay 33-32 at the Georgia Dome on October 30, thanks to an 11-yard touchdown pass by Ryan with just 31 seconds left on the clock.
