Green Bay Packers Impact Players to Watch in Week Two

Tom Oates: Surprise cut of CB LaDarius Gunter signals new philosophy for Packers

Packers player wishes he could fight the Seahawks: 'I'd be out there knocking them dudes out'

You could see what Geno Atkins was able to do.

"So, even our linebacking corps, they were close in there doing a pretty good job in terms of just making certain that we had all of those avenues covered". Former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan found a way to get Jones 12 targets when the Packers knew he was coming.

A solid run game will help set up the shot plays.

The Green Bay Packers hit the road in Week two to face the Atlanta Falcons in what should be one of the best games of the week.

But McCarthy didn't want anyone disparaging Gunter's efforts for the Packers.

The Packers fought hard but lost to the Vikings as they christened U.S. Bank stadium last September, they'll have a very aroused crowd and a talented Falcons team to contend with in the first regular season game in this building's history. These could be positions for the Falcons to exploit if they're out come Sunday. The defense of the Packers looked like a new beast last week, holding the Seahawks to just nine points. 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. Green Bay drafted Kevin King and signed Davon House in the offseason to add depth at cornerback. Disappointing holdovers Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, slowed by groin injuries last season, are healthy again and playing faster.

He's one of the key cogs in the Packers' defense as a safety and linebacker, who moves around the different alignments. Capers used the scheme on 42 of 49 plays against Seattle.

"It's just way more chill".

"After every game, I always critique myself first", Sarkisian said on Thursday. I thought our pursuit and finish as a unit was outstanding and that's what I'm looking for moving forward.

Like the Packers did six years ago by sweeping three in 11 months, I think the Falcons will complete a hat trick in under a calendar year against the Pack.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones started the 2017 season on Sunday by catching four passes for 66 yards against the Chicago Bears, which means he should catch five passes for 106 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Game 2 on Sunday.

Sherman has never missed a game since he began with the Seahawks in 2011, a streak of 97 games, including 91 starts.

Not almost as much is on the line in Week 2 of 2017, obviously, but the Packers aren't thinking as much about what got away last winter as they are about the impact Sunday's outcome could have on the winter to come. "I'm hoping he continues to progress and can play in the football game", Joseph said.

Daniels has already said he's playing, so no worries there. "They've got speed and big-play players and you have to account for them". It's important for our players to get out on the field early, make sure their shoes are right, check out the lighting. ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes that the Packers may have both Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari when they take on the Falcons Sunday night, but they may also be forced to go into the game with a tackle who has just one career start and an undrafted rookie who was just promoted to the active roster this week.
