Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons: 2013 Game 13
Unfiltered game day blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
Evan Dietrich Smith is playing, which means the Packers can prevent the OL shuffle, which has not worked out well at all. Even better, Marshall Newhouse reported with flu symptoms, so Derek Sherrod will be the first tackle off the bench, if needed.
Matt Flynn get the call again at QB, despite a dismal performance last week against the Lions.
Snowing in Green Bay – perfect football weather and a great welcome for the 3-9 Falcons.
