The teams’ quarterbacks Matt Ryan, 31, and Aaron Rodgers, 32, have a long history of play against each other, going all the way back to 2008 when Matt was ATL’s rookie and Aaron became Green Bay’s starter. Matt knows that he’s got his work cut our for him, telling the Green Bay media earlier in the week that, “Anytime you go against Aaron, anytime you go against Green Bay, you know that they’re going to come in very well prepared and they’re capable of making a lot of plays. You have to be on top of your game and on top of your game plan.”
While Aaron has had a fairly mediocre 2016, he suddenly found his inner fire against Chicago Bears Oct. 20, where he managed to set a team-record 39 pass completions. Matt’s been on top of is game all season with the NFL’s highest passer rating and will have his boisterous home crowd at the Georgia Dome behind him.
“On the road and in an environment like that, you’ve got to start fast and take the crowd out of it,” Aaron said ahead of the game. “We’ve been in there multiple times and know how loud it can be when it’s rocking. They’ve lost a couple in a row, so I’m sure they’re looking for a bounce-back game, and we’re going down there with some confidence. We’ve won in that building before and we’ve won big games on the road before. We’ve just got to put it all together.”
