The first ticket to the Super Bowl will be punched in the NFC today. The NFC North champion Green Bay Packers visit the NFC South champion Atlanta Falcons.
The expectation is to see the scoreboard lit up today. The Falcons have the NFL’s top offense, and the Packers have a banged up defense. Meanwhile, the Packers have the hottest quarterback in the league, Aaron Rodgers, and Atlanta’s defense did not have a strong season despite showing improvement late in the year. If you like low scoring slugfests, this might not be the game for you. If you like shootouts, this sounds like your kind of game.
The winner will take on the winner of tonight’s AFC Championship Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots.
Enjoy the game, and leave your thoughts below. The game is shown across the nation on FOX and streamed on the Fox Sports Go app.
