Atlanta vs. Green Bay should be a dream come true for fans who love offense, and I love that one of those high-powered clubs will end up in the Super Bowl.

These two teams already played to a stunning finish in October, when the Falcons got an 11-yard touchdown pass with 0:31 to go to win 33-32. Many are expecting the same type of high-scoring affair for the postseason, as indicated by the over/under of 62 points. I think that both of these teams would like to try methodically moving the ball down the field, with the hopes that just one defensive stop can give them a significant edge. We might see that early on, but once things get tense in the second half, the points will be traded left and right. Both offenses will give it their all, but I’m sticking with the red-hot Aaron Rodgers to continue willing his team to victory. Packers 34, Falcons 31
