Atlanta Falcons cool off Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers

It appears Olivia Munn may feel Aaron Rodgers family may be to blame when it comes to his team's stunning loss against the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend, knocking them out of the playoffs just one game shy of the Super Bowl.

Neither team could effectively run the ball well. Since becoming a starter in 2008, Rodgers has averaged a Quarterback Rating of 104.7, while this season he managed to reach a 104.2.

It began during the offseason program with JC Tretter taking over at center in place of two-year starter Corey Linsley, who was forced to start the year on the physically unable to perform list due to a lingering hamstring injury.

Aaron Rodgers had 287 yards and threw three touchdowns, with one interception. Rodgers was also sacked twice for 19 yards.

You can probably be assured that the matchups with Atlanta and Dallas will be set for prime time and I wouldn't be surprised if games against Baltimore, Carolina, Seattle and even Cincinnati could be pushed to the late afternoon or night slots. Touchdown passes to Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Jared Cook would not be enough, though. Ryan was as precise as a surgeon, going 27 for 38 for 392 yards and four touchdowns. He had nine receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers, and is without a doubt one of the most unsafe weapons in their - or any team's - arsenal.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was visibly perturbed at his team's lack of offensive production the last two weeks, especially after the loss of star running back Le'veon Bell late in the game's first quarter.

Those types of games don't make the schedule any easier. I could not imagine what type of pain he was in.

Immigration experts say it makes sense for cities and counties to avoid immigration enforcement, which is complex and situational. A man who had been previously deported and had been released by local law enforcement was charged in her death.

Aaron Rodgers and the offense single-handedly kept the Packers season alive, but had plenty of flaws that should be addressed this offseason. To quote Mr. Garvey, "You've done messed up A-A-Ron!" I know that's not a lot to go on, but it seems that whenever he goes in there you wish we had somebody else.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was remarkable all season, turned in his best playoff performance of his career. Were you happy that they simply got to the NFC Championship Game? "We just came up a little short".

Mohamed Sanu started the scoring with a two-yard pass from Matt Ryan before Matt Bryant kicked a field goal to give the home side a 10-0 lead that they would not relinquish for the rest of the game. Pittsburgh allowed 57 yards and one score on a LeGarrette Blount one-yard run.

At the start of the second half, with the team already leading 24-0, Ryan found Jones for a heart-breaking 73-yard touchdown strike that all but cemented the victory.

As I was writing this, a notification popped on my phone from CBS sports that Roethlisberger won't commit to playing football in 2017 and retirement is a possibility. Packersnews.com T.J. showed why he got that honor on Monday, as he openly discussed the status of his injured foot and how it was bothering him every since it was first hurt around the middle of the season.

McCarthy had nothing but praise for the Falcons, quarterback Matt Ryan and the sold-out Georgia Dome, which hosted its last game with a $1.5 billion stadium under construction next door.
