1966

(10-23-66) Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers - Bonus baby Donny Anderson scored two touchdowns, one on a 77-yard punt return, as the Green Bay Packers mauled the defenseless Atlanta Falcons 56-3. Anderson's first regular season score came on a five-yard sweep as the once beaten Packers remained alone atop the Western Conference standings. Green Bay plucked the Falcons for 28 points in the first half alone as Bart Starr completed eight of 11 throws for 217 yards. He stepped aside in favor of Zeke Bratkowski early in the second half. The Packers, unable to score more than 24 points in any previous game, held only a 7-0 lead after the first 15 minutes as Elijah Pitts smashed over from the three to cap a 71-yard drive that began with a Bob Jeter interception of a Dennis Claridge pass. But they added three more touchdowns in the second period with Jim Taylor plunging over from the one, Carroll Dale taking a 51 yard Starr bomb and Anderson's sweep. Atlanta came back in the second half to score on a 41-yard field goal by Lou Kirouac, set up by the power running of Ernie Wheelwright. But Herb Adderly added a fifth Packer touchdown with a 68-yard runback of a pass interception. Bratkowski, who took over for Starr early in the third period, connected with Max McGee for a 24-yard touchdown early in the final period. Anderson's punt return came late in the game as the Packers continued to pour it on despite liberal substituting by Coach Vince Lombardi. Another substitute, Doug Hart, closed out the scoring when he intercepted a Randy Johnson pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. The victory margin remains the largest in Green Bay history. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - Milwaukee game - original, 26 minutes (Quality 9) - Upgraded June, 2009

However, kicker Mike Michel missed the ensuing extra point, which would later prove to be costly. Neither team would score again until the third quarter when the Eagles would drive 60 yards to running back Wilbert Montgomery's 1-yard rushing touchdown. But late in the fourth period, Falcons quarterback Steve Bartkowski completed 4 of 6 passes for 88 yards, as Atlanta came back to score on tight end Jim Mitchell's 20-yard touchdown reception.

1991

(11-10-91) Atlanta Falcons @ Washington Redskins - was the first regular season game a guy named Brett Favre completed his first pass in. His first completion was a well thrown pass that wasn't handled by the receiver. The ball would instead be tipped up into the air off the receivers hands and returned for a TD by Washington! Favre would then go to the sidelines and say to his coach, "How about that my first completion in the NFL and it goes for a TD!" It wasn't found to be to be very amusing.

(12-01-91) Green Bay Packers @ Atlanta Falcons - Ron Wolf’s first game as Green Bay’s GM - The Green Bay Packers almost silenced Atlanta's playoff talk. Then the Falcons struck for three touchdowns in the final quarter to keep those hopes alive. Chris Miller, getting off a sick bed at halftime, completed a 16-yard touchdown pass to Andre Rison with 41 seconds remaining to give the Falcons a 35-31 victory. Atlanta's game-winning touchdown came from a break. Green Bay punter Paul McJulien bobbled a snap and was forced to keep the ball, running out of bounds on his 41, well short of a first down. After being sacked on first down. Miller completed a 10-yard pass to Mike Pritchard and a 21-yarder to Rison before hitting for the game winner. The future QB of the Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre, watched the game on the Atlanta sidelines. - Includes commercials and halftime (4 discs) (Quality 9.5)

With just over one minute remaining, Green Bay was driving into Atlanta territory. Ashley Ambrose intercepted a long Favre pass intended for Bill Schroeder at the 2-yard line to seal the win. Ambrose also intercepted Favre's first pass of the day. Losing for just the 12th time in 75 home games, Favre threw three interceptions and fumbled twice, losing one of them. He finished the afternoon completing 16 of 29 attempts for 262 yards and two touchdowns. Favre connected on two long pass plays to Corey Bradford for 51 and 56 yards in the first half.

Schroeder tallied four catches for 55 yards and one score while Antonio Freeman hauled in two passes for 45 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

That capped a six-play, 35-yard drive that followed William Henderson's dive into the end zone on fourth-and-inches with 1:10 left that had given Green Bay a 34-31 lead. The Packers avenged their only home loss last year behind Brett Favre, who completed 25 of 36 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns, and Ahman Green, who rushed 27 times for 155 yards.

(01-04-03) 2002 NFC Wildcard Playoffs - Atlanta @ Green Bay Packers - It looked so perfect for Green Bay. Snow falling. Packers in green and gold. Lambeau Field in January. Only it wasn't Brett Favre making all the plays. It was Michael Vick. Undaunted by the storied stadium where his own coach lost in the "Ice Bowl" 35 years ago, Vick made history of his own. The 22-year-old improvisational genius led the Atlanta Falcons to a shocking 27-7 upset of the Packers in a wild-card playoff before a record crowd of 65,358 stunned souls. The Packers were the only team to go unbeaten at home during the regular season. And they had never lost a home playoff game since the NFL instituted a postseason in 1933 in going 13-0 -- 11 of the victories coming at Lambeau and two more in Milwaukee. The closest they had come was on New Year's Eve 1967, when Bart Starr knifed into the end zone with 13 seconds left to give Green Bay a 21-17 victory over Dallas in the coldest game in NFL history. Falcons coach Dan Reeves threw a 50-yard touchdown pass on a halfback option that gave the Cowboys a 17-14 fourth-quarter lead in that game. Favre had built a reputation as the game's greatest cold-weather quarterback, winning all 35 of his starts at home in which the temperature was 34 or below. It was an unseasonably warm 31 degrees at kickoff. But by the time snow began falling at halftime, the Falcons had an astonishing 24-0 lead. Favre was without Pro Bowl running back Ahman Green (knee) and leading receivers Donald Driver (shoulder) and Terry Glenn (concussion) in a futile second-half comeback attempt. He finished 20-of-42 for 247 yards. Vick was 13-of-25 for 117 and rushed 10 times for 64 yards, numerous times turning sure sacks into big plays. - (Quality 9) - upgraded February, 2008

(11-13-05) Green Bay Packers @ Atlanta Falcons - Green Bay is sure glad Samkon Gado put his medical career on hold. Making his first career start on his 23rd birthday, the Nigerian-born Gado scored three touchdowns and the Packers won for only the second time this season, upsetting first-place Atlanta. Brett Favre threw for 252 yards and came up with a great escape on a drive that led to Ryan Longwell's fourth field goal, a 51-yarder with 4:01 remaining that restored Green Bay's nine-point lead. Less than a minute later, rookie WR Roddy White finished off the Falcons with their sixth fumble of the day. Nick Barnett scooped up the ball and returned it to the Atlanta 2, where Gado powered into the end zone for his third TD. Gado, who was unemployed less than a month ago, was the fifth player to start at running back in Green Bay's revolving door backfield - and certainly the most improbable - after season-ending injuries to Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport.

2008

(10-05-08) Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers - With every rock-solid read and on-target spiral, Matt Ryan takes another step toward making everybody forget Michael Vick, Bobby Petrino and everything else in the alcons' ugly recent past. The rookie quarterback turned in another sharp performance as the Falcons beat the Packers, upstaging a gritty showing by Aaron Rodgers. It was the first road win of the season for the new and improved Falcons, putting a team that is supposed to be rebuilding over the .500 mark. Falcons coach Mike Smith had a feeling during pregame warmups that his young quarterback wasn't going to get rattled on the road this time around. Ryan completed 16 of 26 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White caught eight passes for 132 yards and a touchdown, while Michael Turner ran for 121 yards and a touchdown. Ryan stole the stage from Rodgers, who played hurt and played hard -- but not quite well enough to avoid the Packers' third straight loss. Rodgers started for the Packers despite a sprained shoulder that kept him out of practice for most of the week. He got better as the game went on, even as the signs that his shoulder was bothering him became more obvious. Rodgers hurt his shoulder at Tampa Bay last Sunday, and insisted during the week that the quarterback-record consecutive starts streak held by his predecessor, Brett Favre, didn't place any additional pressure on him to play. NOTES: Michael Turner rushed for 121 yards for his third 100-yard rushing game this season and sixth of his career. His teams are 6-0 when he reaches the century mark in rushing...Atlanta snapped a five-game road losing streak dating to last season and is one win away from tying last season's win total...The Packers lost for the first time (including playoffs) when Ryan Grant had 18 rush attempts in a game. He finished with 83 yards on 18 carries...Rodgers was 25-for-37 for 313 yards, his first career 300-yard game at Lambeau Field and second overall.
