KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: Atlanta finally transitioned to a pass-first offense in offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's first year, though with new No. 1 back Steven Jackson replacing over-the-hill Michael Turner, they at least have the threat of a running game now. Koetter brought in more zone looks, and they should continue to move away from the man blocking of past regimes. Jackson can play three downs, but they may be careful with his workload to keep him fresh for the playoffs. They trust No. 2 back Jacquizz Rodgers in the passing game and on some runs out of spread looks, and they'll rotate Jason Snelling in as well. The biggest addition Koetter made to the passing game was more bubble screens, which proved to be one of their best weapons. They use a lot of motion to create mismatches and effectively use bunch formations for added confusion. Roddy White remains Matt Ryan's favorite target, while Julio Jones is frequently used either downfield, or on those bubble screens. Ryan's second look is usually for TE Tony Gonzalez up the seam. Atlanta gets more balanced in the red zone, and that should hold true with Jackson replacing Turner as the red zone and goal line back. The Falcons are hoping disgruntled DE Osi Umenyiora seriously helps a pass rush that totaled nine sacks in the second half of the year. Atlanta ranked 24th in yards allowed last season (366 YPG), but forced 31 turnovers (T-4th in NFL), including a dozen in the final five games. Atlanta departed with veteran DE John Abraham and CBs Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson, but the secondary is still loaded with FS Thomas DeCoud (6 INT), CB Asante Samuel (5 INT) and rookie CB Desmond Trufant. The front seven has questions, but both top tacklers, LBs Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas, are now healthy.
GREEN BAY: The Packers are still trying to figure out the running game, a one-cut system that plays off the passing game. They run out of all their looks, whether it's with a fullback, two tight ends or a three- or four-receiver look. Rookie Eddie Lacy enters this year as the favorite for early-down carries, though they'll rotate three backs most weeks and simply ride the hot hand. Lacy and fullback John Kuhn will work in short yardage situations, and they'll even have WR Randall Cobb take some hand-offs out of a shotgun formation. Aaron Rodgers is as good as anyone in the NFL throwing on the run, and they'll keep moving the pocket behind a shaky offensive line that allowed Rodgers to be sacked 51 times last year, well up from 36 sacks in 2011. Cobb should emerge as the most consistently targeted player because he works underneath so often. Healthy again, Jordy Nelson should be the big-play receiver again, with James Jones getting more consistent playing time with Greg Jennings gone. And flex TE Jermichael Finley is up for a bigger role as Cobb gets more attention from defenses. The backs are not used often as receivers. The Packers are a pass-heavy team in the red zone. Rodgers led the team in rushes inside the 10. Lacy and Kuhn figure to battle for the goal line role. The Packers defense has certainly improved, especially at home where they allowed just 17.5 PPG last year. The D-Line doesn't possess great pass rushers, but OLB Clay Matthews (13 sacks) takes care of that. Even without Charles Woodson, this secondary still shines brightly with SS Morgan Burnett (123 tackles) and CBs Tramon Williams (16 PD) and Casey Hayward (6 INT). LB Brad Jones is coming off a career year (77 tackles) and will take over for Desmond Bishop, who was released after not taking a pay cut.

*Falcons-Packers Preview* =========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

While it may be too late to help them get into the playoffs, the Green Bay Packers are hoping to get Aaron Rodgers on the field for their final four games.

The Packers star quarterback's status remains unknown for Sunday's visit from the Atlanta Falcons.

Green Bay has gone 0-4-1 since Rodgers broke his collarbone in the first quarter of a 27-20 loss to Chicago on Nov. 4. The Packers (5-6-1) were routed 40-10 in Detroit in their latest game on Thanksgiving and lost a key tiebreaker to the Lions, who clinched the best record in NFC North play.

Green Bay might have a decision on Rodgers' status as early as Friday.

"It's a medical decision. There were three parts to it: the strength, the range of motion and the evidence that we see on the scan. Two out of three are passed so far," Rodgers said. "I can't control the healing of my bone. That's frustrating. But I've been preparing as if I was going to play every week and trying to help Matt (Flynn) and Scott (Tolzien) out as much as I possibly can."

Green Bay is 1 1/2 games behind Detroit, and it's far less likely it can make up a 2 1/2-game deficit on San Francisco for the NFC's final wild-card spot. The 49ers also own the tiebreaker over the Packers by virtue of their 34-28 win in Week 1.

"We're still in it. We need Detroit to lose two out of four, but the biggest part of that is us winning out," Rodgers said. "We've got to control what we can control. That starts this weekend. We have to get a W."

In their final four games, the Packers will face only one team currently with a winning record, making a visit to Dallas on Dec. 15. While they have a meager record, the Falcons (3-9) might have a little more confidence after a 34-31 overtime win against Buffalo this past weekend.

Atlanta totaled 423 yards - its most in eight contests - while ending a five-game losing streak. Matt Ryan overcame a season-high six sacks to top 300 yards passing for the first time in five games, and Roddy White had easily his best performance in 2013 with 10 catches for 143 yards.

Steven Jackson, meanwhile, scored a pair of touchdowns while setting season bests with 23 carries and 84 yards. Jackson was averaging 36.4 yards in the previous seven games in this injury-shortened campaign.

"I think we can always be better," Jackson said. "I think we can always hope for things to be better as well. We just have to be consistent in our work and continue to show up day to day, week to week, with the same expectations."

Tony Gonzalez caught Ryan's lone touchdown pass in that game despite dealing with an ailing toe, and he's 79 yards shy of becoming the fifth NFL receiver - and only tight end - to reach 15,000. However, he was also among four players limited in practice earlier this week.

Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (knee), center Peter Konz (ankle) and backup safety Zeke Motta (hand) were the others.

Weatherspoon is hoping to get a chance to stop Rodgers and rookie running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy is ninth in the NFL with 822 yards but had just 16 on 10 carries in Detroit after rushing for 110 in a 26-all tie with Minnesota on Nov. 24.

"(Stopping Lacy) is big. You want to get a lot of people to him early," Weatherspoon said. "With Aaron, he gets the ball out quick and knows where he wants to go with it. He knows how to make defenders move a certain way. He has one of the strongest arms in the NFL so that poses a challenge."

Rodgers has topped 300 yards in each of his four career matchups with the Falcons, including a 48-21 playoff victory in Atlanta on Jan. 15, 2011. He has totaled nine touchdowns to just one interception in those games, and passed for 396 yards and two TDs in a 25-14 victory Oct. 9, 2011.

Ryan, meanwhile, has failed to surpass 200 yards in any of his four games against Green Bay, and has five interceptions and five touchdowns in those matchups.

Jackson has averaged 91.8 yards in his six lifetime meetings with Green Bay but had 57 on 12 carries in his most recent one, a 30-20 loss for St. Louis on Oct. 21, 2012.
