GREEN BAY – The Packers’ defense was exhausted and needed a break. The offense provided it.
The Falcons had just driven 94 yards in 20 plays covering 10 minutes, 36 seconds, but settled for a field goal midway through the second quarter of Monday night’s game.
The last thing Green Bay’s defense wanted to do was go right back out there to protect a small lead, and the offense made sure it didn’t have to.
Driving 75 yards in 11 plays for a touchdown, the Packers established a two-score advantage it held the rest of the way in the 30-16 triumph, and the important response is the Chevy Drive of the Week.
