Look for the lights: Packers receivers face challenge in Falcons' new stadium

"Last year's last year", the Packers coach said Wednesday.

"Having the city and the connection that they have to the team, we enjoy that", he said.

"Those things, that hasn't even been discussed", Bulaga said.

When Rodgers, the Packers quarterback, met with the media this week, he was asked right away about the challenges of playing in a new stadium. Clay is moving around again from the outside linebacker position and playing a key role in Green Bay's pass rush, while Jake is responsible for protecting Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's blind side at the crucial left tackle spot.

Although the penalty cost Green Bay 15 yards, Rodgers got a first down on the play, and the Packers managed to run out the clock on that drive to preserve the win.

Atlanta has won two straight after Green Bay took four consecutive games from the Falcons between 2011-14.

In his first game as a member of the Packers' franchise, Bennett hauled in three receptions for 43 yards, while receiving six targets.

Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett was fined $9,115 on Friday for his unnecessary roughness penalty in Green Bay's 17-9 Week 1 win over the Seattle Seahawks. "As time passes, I feel like it's getting stronger, it's getting better".

It's what defensive coordinator Dom Capers employs on defense to better suit House's skill set.

Jordy Nelson fully expects the lighting at the Atlanta Falcons' new stadium to be, in his words, screwed up.

It's just the sort of effort that coaches love to see against a physical defense, one that opponents will remember come playoff time.

Will the Packers finally have an answer for Matt Ryan? The question is whether they have increased their speed enough to stay with an Atlanta offense that led the National Football League in scoring last season.

Luckily, the Packers have the resources to soften the blow.

Also listed as questionable are defensive lineman Mike Daniels, safety Kentrell Brice and defensive lineman Montravius Adams.

To show just how far Green Bay has come, it released Gunter on Tuesday due to much improved cornerback depth. "It's always fun to play against family, and I've enjoyed watching his success". I thought our pursuit and finish as a unit was outstanding and that's what I'm looking for moving forward.

"Those are moments you take with you for a long time", Rodgers told after the game. As most have found a way to do since February, Sports Illustrated's Ben Baskin framed the opening of the stadium in a way that brought the Falcons' Super Bowl loss front and center. He caught two passes for 128 yards, including an 88-yard touchdown catch-and-run, in the season opener against the Chicago Bears.

(Was the offensive line taxed the most in the Seattle game?) "Well, they'll never admit it".

In the victory over Seattle, Daniels and Perry were a constant presence in the Seahawks backfield, with Daniels changing the course of the game with a third quarter strip-sack. "We'll see how he is tomorrow, and I'll wait until game day, but he looked really good".

"Guys are healthy", Randall said.

Q: So you had to hit up your teammates to buy their tickets? Rodgers was the leading Green Bay rusher in both of those games.

October 27, 2013, at the Metrodome - Peterson gained 83 total yards (60 rushing, 23 receiving) and a TD as the Packers rolled to a 44-31 Sunday night triumph.
