Week 4 Monday Night Football matchup consists of two teams that are at the other end of the spectrum of the winning columns this season.
The Packers (3-0), who won their games by an average of 12.3 points, will receive a Falcons team (0-3) that have tried hard to finish each of their last two games. Atlanta lost 19 and 16 points clear of the Cowboys and Bears in the second half.
Monday's meeting should be accompanied by Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Matt Ryan of Atlanta, as both teams' defenses in defending against the pass are in the lower half of the league: the Packers occupy 18th place, giving 247 yards each Play on; The Falcons occupy 31st place with 350 yards per game.
To that end, Atlanta is likely to look to receivers Julio Jones (thighs) and Calvin Ridley (ankles), who are both expected to play on Monday. But Packer's receiver Davante Adams (Knuckles) tweeted that he will be held back from Monday's game. Will Jones' return alongside Ridley be enough to spur the Falcons to their first win of the season? Or will they suffer another heartbreak when Green Bay takes sole command of NFC North with a 4-0 record?

10:21 p.m .: TOUCHDOWN, PACKERS. A game later, Rodgers found Tonyan in the middle for an 8-yard score that was 20-3 by 46 seconds. Packers also get the ball from half-time and could end the game with another hit.
10:19 p.m .: Rodgers meets Malik Taylor briefly and the receiver takes him 20 yards down to the Atlanta 8. The Packers quarterback absolutely tears up a gutted Falcons secondary.

9:59 p.m .: TOUCHDOWN, PACKERS. Green Bay picks up a safety bolt and Rodgers makes Atlanta pay for it and hits Tonyan for a 19-yard touchdown. But a missed PAT kick from Mason Crosby slightly mitigates the damage to the Falcons. It's 13-3, Packers.
9:56 pm: And Rodgers hits Valdes-Scantling on the comeback route for a third down-conversion. Difficult for a team from Atlanta that looked like they'd disappeared from the field.
9:55 pm: Kazee is now being carted off the field. This is the fifth Falcons DB this year due to injuries and COVID-19 exemptions.
9:53 pm: Compensatory penalties force a Packers Third-and-10 game of Atlanta 47 to be replayed, but a touchless breach of Atlanta Damontae Kazee safety is more urgent. He's down on the field and is looked at by coaches at about 5:30 in the half.
9:48 pm: Rodgers finds Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 17-yard win on the first game of the following drive. That brings Green Bay to 42.
9:44 p.m .: FIELD TARGET, FALCONS. Ryan's third pass down to Gage in the end zone is incomplete, so Atlanta is satisfied with the 23-yard field goal and instead scores 7: 3, Packers. For those who count, that's a 20-game, 94-yard field goal ride.
9:42 pm: Ryan escapes the pocket and crawls 6 yards onto the 5 to make another move to fourth.
9:41 pm: Falcons take a break in another fourth scenario, this one at 2 yards, to take advantage of the 11.
