Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers completed double-digit passes to Davante Adams (career-high 13 for 132 yards and two touchdowns), Randall Cobb (11 for 95 yards and a score) and Ty Montgomery (10 for 66 yards receiving, 60 yards rushing) in a 26-10 win versus the Chicago Bears on Oct. 20.

While Green Bay’s total offense ranks 21st in the league, Atlanta leads the NFL in both total offense (433.6 yards per game) and scoring (32.7 points) with Matt Ryan (league-best 2,348 passing yards) and Julio Jones (NFL-high 830 receiving yards) paving the way. The latter reeled in 174 receiving yards last week in the Falcons’ 33-30 overtime setback to San Diego and had 11 receptions for 259 yards and a score in a 43-37 loss to the Packers on Dec. 8, 2014.

Jordy Nelson had 10 receptions for 146 yards and two touchdowns in his last encounter with Atlanta, but the veteran wideout appears a step off since missing the 2015 season with a torn ACL.

Devonta Freeman (team-leading 508 yards rushing) has recorded at least 100 yards from scrimmage in three of his last five games and likely will have the backfield to himself with second-year back Tevin Coleman nursing an ailing hamstring.

Falcons LB Vic Beasley recorded two sacks and a forced fumble last week and has collected 5.5 of his team-leading 6.5 sacks over the past three games.
