Falcons rally to beat Packers 33-32 on Sanu's TD catch

The Packers had a chance to gain ground with a win over the Falcons, and they'll have to hope for a Chicago Bears upset Monday night if they want to remain just one game behind. "He has ice in his veins". Two weeks ago, it was the offensive players who were walking away from games scratching their heads over their lack of production.

"It's just finishing", Sanu said. "The last two games, we didn't". He threw four touchdown passes, three of which concluded drives of 75 yards or more and one of which gave the Packers a 32-26 lead with just under 4 minutes to play. "He's a big body who is excellent in the red zone". After putting up a combined 313 yards in his previous two games, Jones up and disappeared Sunday against the Packers. He hurt his ankle in the second-quarter. Ty Montgomery was out Sunday with illness. "We didn't need a blowout". "I fully expected to win, put ourselves in position to win and I think this is an excellent illustration, as I told the team, of what these tough games come down to".

The Packers were shorthanded on offense and defense because of injuries, but nearly pulled out a victory anyway.

"In retrospect, a ball that was a little closer to (Adams) maybe allows him to cut off his route", Rodgers said. "They came in and did that, and I'm definitely proud of what they did". "We prepare hard. At the end of the day, it's just about going out there and executing your job".

"We're disappointed we did not win the game", coach Mike McCarthy said. "We're playing everyone we have".

Nelson and Adams carried the weight on offense, but each of the three young receivers left the Georgia Dome with his first National Football League regular-season touchdown to help power the offense in the Packers' 33-32 loss to the Falcons. He also scrambled 23 yards to spark a quick-strike drive that resulted in Mason Crosby's 29-yard field goal on the last play of the half.

Gunners Legend Gives Verdict on Arsene Wenger's Future
Could Guardiola really sell Man City hero Aguero? Arsenal are now unbeaten in 11 games, nine of which they've won. Arsenal's clash against Middlesbrough is another important step to that elusive Premier League title.


With an inexperienced supporting cast, Rodgers threw touchdown passes to receivers Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis and Geronimo Allison, with Davis and Allison making their first receptions of the season.

Atl-Gabriel 47 pass from M.Ryan (Bryant kick), 4:28.

The Falcons lost tight end Jacob Tamme to a right shoulder injury on the opening possession.

Injury Report: Tevin Coleman is out, everyone else should be in.

Davis was acquired October 18 for a conditional late-round draft choice shortly after running back Eddie Lacy was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury that required surgery. Non-injury inactives for the Falcons included CB Jalen Collins and DT Ra'Shede Hageman, both former second-round draft picks.

Quinn hadn't seen the Matty Ice, who did most of magical work during the first five years of his career when he was guiding the Falcons to the playoffs four times. The Falcons had just three second-half possessions: the game-winner, a three-and-out and a run-heavy drive that lasted almost eight minutes. The Falcons have a short week coming up, as they play at Tampa Bay on Thursday.
