Green Bay Packers

Atlanta Falcons



We are about 30 minutes away from kickoff in Atlanta, in a historic moment for the Atlanta Falcons. They will open their new home stadium, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with a NFC Championship Game rematch against the Green Bay Packers. That game ended the Georgia Dome's 25-year run last January.

Alabama-Florida State along with Tennessee-Georgia Tech were both held in the stadium earlier this month to begin the college season, but this is the first NFL regular season game.

I am Joe Wright (@Sctvman), and I will be guiding you through this ball game this morning.

Aaron Rodgers vs. Matt Ryan. This is a juicy QB showdown.

The winner of this game will be 2-0 and have control of their division (the NFC North for the Packers, the NFC South for the Falcons).

Sunday Night Football. Carrie Underwood with the open.

The roof is open at Mercedes-Benz. For the first time since 1991, outdoor NFL football will be played in Atlanta.

Building has been open for over a month. Atlanta United, a new Major League Soccer team, also plays here.

Falcons will start inside their 15 yard line to begin. Matt Ryan and Atlanta start at the 14. Freeman starts with a 3 yard gain. To the 17. 2nd and 7. 30 seconds in.

19 yard gain for Julio Jones. Ball now past the 35 at the 36.
