Instant Reaction: Falcons 33, Packers 32

The Atlanta Falcons take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the Georgia Dome. Here are photos from the game.

Atlanta rallied from behind late in the fourth quarter to come back and defeat the Green Bay Packers 33-32 at the Georgia Dome.

The first half of Sunday's matchup at the Georgia Dome was exactly what you would expect: A whole lot of offense.

Atlanta got on the board first with a 36-yard, Matt Bryant field goal, which was a career moment for Bryant as he tied Morten Andersen's franchise points record.

Bryant went on to break the record at the end of the first quarter notching his 807th point as a Falcon.

The Packers got off to a hot start when Rodgers found WR Jordy Nelson deep for a gain of 58 yards that set up Green Bay's first touchdown drive.

Rodgers threw for 170 yards and three touchdowns in the first.

Matt Ryan threw for 183 yards with five of his targets going to TE Austin Hooper who had five catches for 38 yards. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel led the Falcons in receiving yards in the first half, thanks to his 47-yard touchdown play.

Adrian Clayborn played a huge role in the Falcons' win over the Packers as he was able to find success in getting to Rodgers. Clayborn recorded two sacks on the day, both occurring on crucial third down plays.

With 31 seconds on the clock, Ryan threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to WR Mohamed Sanu that resulted in the game-winning drive for the Falcons.

Ryan finished with an impressive 288 passing yards and three touchdowns on the day.

Atlanta improves to 5-3 on the season with a primetime Thursday night matchup versus the Buccaneers up next.
