The Falcons vs Packers game starts at 8:50 p.m. ET / 5:50 p.m. PT today (Monday, Oct. 5).
It's on ESPN, closing out week 4 on Monday Night Football.

It's game time! Tonight's Falcons vs Packers live stream looks pretty interesting, if not exactly competitive. This Monday Night Football game looks like the most disparate matchup possible, as a seemingly undeniable Green Bay team takes on an underwhelming Atlanta squad. 

Yes, Packers are on fire, with three high-scoring wins under their belt, while the Falcons are burned out, having given up double-digit leads in the past two games to wind up with a 0-3 record thus far.

While the Packers are favored seven points in this match (per odds taken on FanDuel), don't count the Falcons out yet. The team surely can score. They racked up 39 points, for instance, against Dallas in their second game of the season, losing by just one point.

The problem was how the Falcons defense broke down at the end of the game, allowing Dallas to come back from behind so rapidly, picking up 16 points in the final 7:57 minutes. Then it was deja vu in last week's matchup with the Bears, in which the Falcons gave up a 16 point lead in the last 6:20 minutes.

If Atlanta could have just kept discipline in the final minutes of play, it might have come into its Packers match with a 2-1 record, instead of 0-3. But the past two mishaps are looking like part of a long term pattern, or perhaps a curse. The team and head coach Dan Quinn are still living down a blown 28-3, second-half lead against the Patriots in Super Bowl LI in 2017.

This game is Green Bay's to lose. The Packers have dominated the early season, with three solid wins in a row. And they've been high scoring wins. The Packers, in fact, have scored the sixth-most points ever for a 3-0 team in NFL history, with 122 points.

The Packers success is rooted in first-rate quarterback Aaron Rodgers, one of the top QBs in the game these days. In the past three matchups alone, he has thrown for a hefty 887 yards, leading to nine touchdown passes. Rodgers hasn't had a single interception this season. The QB is well defended, too. The Packers have allowed just two sacks this season, the second-lowest number in the NFL this year. Rodgers has been spreading out the love among receivers. In last week's game against the New Orleans Saints, for instance, he threw each of his three touchdown passes to a different receiver. 

Green Bay's defense has not been stellar, however. In fact, the team ranks last in opponents’ yards per play. But that hasn't translated over to problems, as Green Bay has still been able to outscore all opponents. Barring a miracle on Atlanta's defensive line, the Packers look likely to steamroll another victory on Monday night.
