The Atlanta Falcons 20-17 win over the Green Bay Packers in NFL Week 12, will be re-broadcast on NFL Network tonight at 9:45 p.m. ET.
With the win, the Falcons improved their overall record to an NFC-best 9-2. QB Matt Ryan once again showed why he's earned the nickname 'Matty Ice' as the third-year player from Boston College led the Falcons on a six-play, 20-yard drive with just 56 seconds remaining in the game to set up K Matt Bryant's 47-yard game-winning field goal. It was the 12th time that Ryan has led the Falcons on a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime in his career and the fifth time he did so this season. Additionally, Bryant's kick was the 12th game winner of his career and his third as a Falcon.
The Falcons finished the 2010 NFL regular season with an NFC-best 13-3 record, were champions of the NFC South Division, and earned a first round bye as well as the NFC's top seed. The Falcons and Packers will meet again Saturday, January 15 at 8:00 p.m. at the Georgia Dome in an NFC Divisional Playoff Game. The two teams have met twice in the playoffs with the Falcons winning the most recent meeting, a 27-7 victory in the 2002 NFC Wild Card Playoff, which marked Green Bay's first-ever home playoff loss and snapped the Packers 11-game home playoff winning streak. The Packers defeated the Falcons, 37-20 in the 1995 NFC Wild Card Game at Lambeau Field.
