cCarthy era this week Davante Adams Jersey , and they set up for a winnable game at home against another struggling team this Sunday afternoon.The Atlanta Falcons come into town mired in a slump, losing each of their last four games to fall to 4-8. That streak came after winning three in a row to reach .500, which followed a three-game losing streak early in the year. Clearly, it has been a season of tough challenges for the Falcons, who had won double-digit games each of the past two seasons.In 2016, the Falcons had an exceptional offense that carried them to the Super Bowl. Last season, a resurgent defense helped drive the Falcons to a playoff win, as they defeated the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round. This year, however Josh Jones Color Rush Jersey , the defense has gone back in the tank while the offense remains an average unit, which has led to a poor record despite a few close losses.For Packers fans around the Midwest, you are largely in luck; local FOX stations in the region (except for Ohio) will broadcast this game.Tune in on Sunday afternoon and get ready with our Game Primer.WHO?Atlanta Falcons (4-8) vs. Green Bay Packers (4-7-1)WHERE?Lambeau FieldGreen Bay, WisconsinWHEN?Sunday, December 9th, 201812:00 Noon Central Time (1:00 PM Eastern)HOW?TV BroadcastPackers-Falcons in red506sports.comFOX regional broadcastCommentators: Kevin Burkhardt, Charles DavisRadio BroadcastPackers Radio NetworkSirius 83; XM 225ANYTHING ELSE?OddsPackers favored by 5 pointsOver/under total: 50.5Last MeetingsRegular season: Week 2, 2017 — @Falcons 34, Packers 23Playoffs: 2016 NFC Championship — @Falcons 44 https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/David-Bakhtiari-Jersey , Packers 21All-time head-to-head recordRegular season: Packers lead 15-14-0Postseason: Tied 2-2 The Green Bay Packers’ 2018 offseason saw a significant brain drain in the team’s front office. After Ted Thompson rode off into the sunset as a glorified area scout, Brian Gutekunst got the vacant general manager job and Eliot Wolf departed for the Cleveland Browns. Alonzo Highsmith went with him, as the team was deprived of two of its longtime personnel men in Gutekunst’s first year on the job.Today, however, an excellent scout with deep Packers ties is back on the market. The Raiders have reportedly fired general manager Reggie McKenzie, who was never going to survive a power struggle with Jon Gruden for long. Gruden’s ten-year contract and significant sway over personnel decisions made that arrangement untenable from the beginning, and the surprise is only that it took until now for owner Mark Davis to release McKenzie of his duties. On Sunday, a report emerged that McKenzie was expected to leave after the season, but according to Ian Rapoport Jason Spriggs Jersey , the team has elected to move on from him immediately.Now, it’s time for Gutekunst and team president Mark Murphy to make a phone call and get him back to Green Bay.McKenzie served in the Packers’ front office for nearly two decades, starting as a scout in 1994 and working his way up to director of player personnel. In 2012, the Raiders hired McKenzie as their GM, and he purged a roster that was deep in salary cap hell and built it up to a high-water mark of 12-4 in 2016. That year, he won the NFL’s Executive of the Year award, largely due to that turnaround.Interestingly, Gutekunst held the director of player personnel job in Green Bay before he took over as GM. He and McKenzie worked together in the Packers’ front office for 13 years from 1999 through 2011, and should therefore have a relationship already. Currently Mike Daniels Color Rush Jersey , the Packers have co-directors of player personnel in Jon-Eric Sullivan and John Wojciechowski. However, the team could easily bring McKenzie in as a consultant for the remainder of 2018 before reshuffling the deck in the offseason to clearly define roles and responsibilities moving forward. McKenzie is a shrewd talent evaluator, and he helped identify several exceptional draft picks in his tenure in Green Bay. The Browns should also be interested in McKenzie, since he worked with Wolf and current Cleveland GM John Dorsey in Green Bay as well. Hopefully the prospect of returning to Titletown would lead him back to the shores of Lake Michigan rather than Lake Erie.
