Green Bay Packers: Quick game is solution to offensive line problems

Green Bay Packers' Mike Daniels causes Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson to fumble during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Green Bay Wis. The Packers recovered the ball

The game is in NBC's primetime slot for Sunday Night Football, starting at 8:30 PM (ET). "In my mind, personally, I knew it was gonna take some adjusting".

Montgomery also caught four passes for 39 yards.

The game against the Bears was the debut for Steve Sarkisian as the Falcons' offensive coordinator.

The Packers have actually faced three reigning MVPs before in the McCarthy era, but they were all running backs. Welcome to the NFL! That fact was highlighted last time the NFC heavyweights played.

The Atlanta Falcons (1-0) take on the Green Bay Packers (1-0) in Week 2 action.

Or maybe Jones will have seven receptions for 115 yards against the Packers.

Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett has been fined $9,115 by the National Football League following an unnecessary penalty he committed against Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright during last Sunday's season opener.

This will be the third time the two teams meet in the last 11 months.

Who will protect No. 12? Backup Jason Spriggs has been listed as out after hurting his hamstring on his single play against Seattle. With the Packers, they'll want to beat the team that clobbered them in the NFC Championship a year ago.

Bale played 82 minutes against the Cyprians and assisted Cristiano Ronaldo's first goal of the game. Ronaldo, who is now serving a domestic ban, opened scoring in the 12th minute.

Two of Rodgers' primary protectors, LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle/illness) have not had a full week of practice. So, we need to practice better today and I think some of it's just a reflection of Week 1, playing 80-plus plays. So maybe kneeling on the ground, throwing up might've helped it.

Q: What worked so well for the defense against Seattle? . Mike Daniels and Nick Perry led the way on defense with 1.5 sacks apiece and constant disruption of Russell Wilson. If Daniels plays as well as he did last week, the Packers defense should continue to impress. Those are tall orders to replicate in Week 2, against a much more dynamic offensive attack.

"But I can't get that game back", said Lane, who played just eight snaps before being tossed. The Packers will throw Davon House, Damarious Randall and any number of safeties at Jones in an effort to slow him down. Atlanta ended Green Bay's season previous year in the NFC Championship Game, with the green and yellow looking for a modicum of revenge.

Alex Smith tops the chart of passing leaders for week 1. On top of that, Atlanta uses Ricardo Allen as the ultimate insurance policy and even has Damontae Kazee come in from time to time for some three-safety packages in a big nickel version of the defense. The edges could be in for their best game of the season if the Packers are forced to start Kyle Murphy at right tackle and go with either Adam Pankey, Justin McCray or Lucas Patrick at left tackle.

"Clay is back to his traditional role as pass rusher, so there will be some family-on-family crime there", Quinn joked. "We have to be disciplined and keep going".

"Even when you play a team twice in the season, it's always different". "We haven't missed him in a long time".

In the season-opening 23-17 victory over the Bears, the Falcons threw five passes Jones' way. Play-by-play man Al Michaels joins analyst Cris Collinsworth in the booth with Michele Tafoya reporting from the sidelines.

Quinten Rollins, Green Bay's second-round draft choice in 2015, also battled a groin injury last season and struggled immensely.
