NFL Monday Night Football: Packers Vs. FalconsPublished October 5, 2020 by Sol FH
The 3-0 Packers look to defeat the 0-3 Falcons to bring an end to a wild Week 4, live at 1:50 GMT.
Week 4 of the 2020 NFL Regular Season comes to an end tonight with the Monday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Atlanta Falcons. For the Falcons, a loss would bring them to a losing record of 0-4, tied for the last place in the league with the NY Giants, NY Jets, and the Houston Texans. For the Packers, a win would preserve their perfect record along with the Bills, Chiefs, Steelers, Titans, and the Seahawks.
Tonight's game features one of the longest and intense QB rivalries of the modern-day, between Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. The two have faced each other nine times since their inaugural match-ups back in 2008. That game was the first year that Rodgers started for Green Bay and the rookie season of Matt Ryan. Atlanta won that game 27-24, and it was a late interception thrown by Rodgers that gave the Falcons that win.
Ryan maintains the winning record of 5-4 but his Falcons are currently looking like a team stuck in slow-motion, while the Packers continue to destroy the competition and score a lot of points.
Games between the two are always a treat to watch. After that first interception throw, Rodgers has amazingly only thrown another two more in the succeeding eight games against Ryan.
In their nine games against each other, Ryan and Rodgers have seemingly lit up the field and have very similar numbers in many categories.
Ryan has completed 204 out of 297 passes for a total of 2,313 yards, a completion rate of 68.9%, 20 TDs, 7 INTs, for a 104.4 QB rating
Rodgers has fared a bit better, completing 241 out of 348 for 2,818 yards and a completion rate of 69.3%, 23 TDs, 3 INTs, for a 112.0 QB rating
