Coming off a historic performance by becoming the first player ever with 400 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in one game, Aaron Rodgers will try to lead the Packers to a 5-0 record as they travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons on Sunday Night Football.

While the Packers will try to remain undefeated, the Falcons will try to establish some consistency. Although Atlanta beat Seattle last week, they allowed 21 second-half points and almost gave up a huge lead. Their other win came against the Eagles in Week 2 when they had to rally from 10 down in the fourth quarter.

Can quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons prove that they haven't regressed from last season's NFC South-winning team? Or will Rodgers and the Packers keep rolling to a perfect start? Stay tuned here for live updates throughout the game and tweet to @HuffPostSports to join in the conversation.
