The Atlanta Falcons will be playing their final game ever in the illustrious Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The fans inside the noisy dome will surely be quite loud during Sunday’s NFC Title game. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is preparing for the crowd noise this week during practice.
“Everything we do on the field cadence-wise, in a loud environment, we work on in practice,” Rodgers said. “We have crowd noise and music in practice. You like to switch it up and make it difficult on them in practice to see how they would respond in a game situation.”
Last year the Falcons got accused of pumping fake noise into the stadium. Rodgers biggest task with be getting the proper snap counts for the rest of the offense in case they can’t hear him. Somehow Rodgers always finds a way to get the other team offsides creating a ton of free plays. I would find it hard to believe that will come with regularity on Sunday in a loud environment.
Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers take on the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Title game Sunday at 3:05.
