Packers WR Randall Cobb vs. Falcons NB Brian Poole: Cobb had a strong showing in the opener against Seattle, with nine catches for 85 yards, including a long of 29 yards. He had six catches for 82 yards in the NFC Championship game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks for Cobb on third downs.
“He’s a great player,” Poole said. “He’s very competitive. It’s not really about him, it’s about my preparation this week and doing everything that I have to do to execute the game plan.”
Packers TE Martellus Bennett vs Falcons SS Keanu Neal: Neal looks forward to matching up with Bennett. “At the end of the day, we line up and we play our ball,” Neal said. “Everything else will take care of itself.” Bennett is not as fast as he used to be, but will move around in formations as the Packers look for a mismatch. Bennett caught three passes for 43 yards in the opener against Seattle. Neal also noted the Packers’ other tight ends, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers. “They are bigger guys,” Neal said. “At the end of the day, we just have to play our ball and handle them from that standpoint.”
Packers RB Ty Montgomery vs. Falcons MLB Deion Jones: Montgomery rushed 19 times for 54 yards (2.8 per carry) against Seattle. He also caught four passes for 39 yards. He’s elusive, and the Falcons missed 11 tackles against the Bears. “I see Montgomery making really good plays,” Jones said. “I see the fullback (Aaron Ripkowski) being real physical making a way for him. They are just playing sound ball in the run game.”
