Monday Cheese Curds: Rodgers and Ryan set to light up the scoreboard

The Packers and Falcons always seem to produce some offensive fireworks when they get together.

The Packers and Falcons are never short for points. Including their meeting in the 2016 NFC Championship Game, at least one team has scored 30 or more points in each of the last five games they’ve played.

That’s partly because of the explosive offenses on the field, but also because neither the Packers or Falcons have had a particularly strong defense for most of the past decade.

That looks to be the trend again this evening, as both defenses have been fairly permissive to their opposing counterparts through three weeks. The Falcons have allowed the league’s second-highest point total, while the Packers have surrendered 30 or more twice in three games.

Suffice it to say, the scoreboard may be getting a workout tonight, even if the Packers are without their top two wide receivers.
