Ahead of their meeting on "Monday Night Football," the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons find themselves in disparate positions.
The 3-0 Packers are riding high thanks to a clicking offense averaging a league-best 40.7 points per game. Aaron Rodgers has taken a big step forward in Year 2 of Matt LaFleur's attack, as the quarterback boasts nine touchdowns and zero interceptions so far this season. The Falcons, meanwhile, are still searching for their first win after collapsing against the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears in consecutive weeks.
Green Bay will be without top wide receiver Davante Adams, who said Monday in a since-deleted tweet he was being held out due to a lingering hamstring issue. Atlanta's Julio Jones (hamstring) and Calvin Ridley (ankle) are expected to play, according to NFL Network.
