What Matt Ryan said about Packers


On the Packers’ Nitro package: “I’ve seen different personnel groupings from them, where they’ve got five (defensive backs) and six (defensive backs) in there. They’ll match against all personnel groupings, so we’ve got to be on top of our communications for sure on the offensive side of the ball and make sure that we are identifying which personnel groupings are in there.”

On Packers safety/linebacker Morgan Burnett: “He’s a guy that you’ll see in all different kinds of spots. He’ll be high. He can be down at the line of scrimmage. Inside and outside. He’s in all different spots throughout the game. Certainly, he’s a good player and somebody that we have to account for where he’s at.” 

On the Packers’ secondary: “They are healthy. Dom Capers does such a great job of kind of marrying the front end to the back end to make sure that they are in sound defenses and in the right spots throughout their game plan. When they have their healthy guys out there they are tough. The played Seattle really well last week. They made it difficult on them the entire day. Again, we are going to have our work cut out for us.”

On Packers linebacker Nick Perry: “They move him around. Certainly, in pass protection we are going to have to be aware of where he’s at. He’ll line up in different spots throughout the game. Again, he’s disruptive for sure. As an edge pass rusher he can be disruptive for them. He’s a big physical and can get after your backs in pass protection. He’s a guy that we’ll have to do a good job with.”
