Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers Pick – NFL Week 4 MNF

A rare Monday Night Football double-header will go down to close out Week 4 as the Falcons will look to play an entire 60 minutes against the Green Bay Packers.

It’s been a frustrating campaign for Atlanta and head coach Dan Quinn thus far. They enter with a dismal 0-3 record, but when you consider the manner in which they’ve lost those games – this remains a team that could and should be a lot better. Their offense can consistently move the chains, but until their defense can get stops, this squad will struggle.

And the Packers should be able to test them come Monday night. Even without Davante Adams, Aaron Rodgers is turning back the clock and showing the football world that he’s still got it. With another year under his belt within the Matt LaFleur offense, Rodgers looks poised to once again lead his team to an NFC North divisional crown. And after defeating the Saints in primetime last week, Green Bay will look to do the same to another NFC South foe in Atlanta.

While it has been a crazy year outside of the sporting world, two games on a mid-season Monday night certainly makes Week 4 a little more exciting. Both games should be thrilled with action and scoring, and for all your betting needs – we’ve got you covered here at TheSportsGeek. Continue reading on beneath the posted odds for full team news and betting analysis, as we look to close out another week of NFL action on a high note. Enjoy the Packers vs. Falcons!

Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers Pick:

With all of the focus and attention surrounding the Falcons and their knack of conceding big leads, it’s going to be interesting to see which Dan Quinn side shows up on Monday night. This is because with the current form of Green Bay, it doesn’t seem likely the Falcons ever take a lead here in Week 4. Rodgers has been elite regardless of his receivers so far, and he’s clearly very motivated to succeed right now.

FALCONS CAN’T GET STOPS
That is bad news for an Atlanta defense that oozes yards to the opposition. They don’t have a pass rush to make things tough on Rodgers in the pocket, while their defensive backfield is depleted and porous. It’s a recipe for disaster for Atlanta as they prepare to take on an in-form Aaron Rodgers. Expect the chains to be moving all night for Green Bay.

On the other side of the football, the Falcons too can and should score come Monday evening. This remains a talented offense, that gets out to early leads and keeps things tight in spite of their suspect stop unit. That said, if Atlanta doesn’t get out to a big lead – they can’t do what Green Bay is most vulnerable to, running the football. They’ll want to air it out as frequently as possible to the likes of Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones, but it won’t be easy against a tight Packers’ secondary.

As you can see, this just seems like an all-around bad matchup for a Falcons’ team that desperately needs a victory. And though it is unclear if Davante Adams will suit up for Green Bay in Week 4, the Packers’ still have enough depth and skill at the wideout position to really trouble a banged-up Atlanta secondary. Monitor the injury reports, but look for the Packers to represent great value at anything under a touchdown to close out Week 4.
