STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Packers LB Clay Matthews and Falcons OT Jake Matthews are first cousins. This will be second time they’ve gone against each other in NFL. … Green Bay has won its last four games against Falcons, streak that began with 48-21 playoff romp during 2010 season. … Green Bay has league’s stingiest run defense, surrendering 71.8 yards per game. … Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is coming off franchise-record 39 completions in Week 7 victory over Chicago. Also in that game, Packers became just second team in NFL history to have three players with 10 receptions. … Green Bay will be without CB Damarious Randall, who underwent surgery for groin injury. … Packers will be playing their first road game in six weeks. They last played away from home in Week 2 at Minnesota. … Atlanta is facing second straight opponent coming off 10-day break. … Falcons signed RBs Terron Ward and Stevan Ridley this week, bolstering depth behind Devonta Freeman in case Tevin Coleman (hamstring) can’t go. … Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown for league-high 2,348 yards and is NFL’s second-rated passer, trailing only New England’s Tom Brady. … Ryan has thrown for at least 200 yards in 46 consecutive games, NFL record. … Atlanta WR Julio Jones has 40 receptions for 830 yards, more than twice as many catches as anyone else on team. … Falcons lead NFL with 32.7 points and 433.6 yards per game. … Eight of last nine regular-season matchups between these teams have been decided by eight points or less. … Atlanta has completed 33 passes of at least 20 yards. … Fantasy Tip: Packers used WR Ty Montgomery in various roles with depleted backfield situation, and he could be good play Sunday.
