temporada, tiene de 8- 8. 30-yard attempt. and crosby will send the packers home on a happy trip to wisconsin. >> cris: that's what world champions do, they find a way, despite tough circumstances, which is certainly what aaron rodgers and the packers faced tonight, to simply get it done. >> al: good passer rating. very imprecise and all of that and it's a little implicatedcomplicated. it gives you an idea. as cris said at the top when i add him for an adjective, he said phenomenal. no if's, and's, or but's. rodgers had 100.5. and kurt warner who did it
through 2002 and had that rating for only one game. but there is aaron rodgers, who has just been spectacular, no question. if the mvp balloting were to be held today, there is your man. he does it again tonight. he does it after a very slow start. he does it one tackle out before the game and the other gone during the game. then crosby bangs it through the end zone. mccarthy does a brilliant job calling the game. capers, on the other side, does a great job of defensive adjustments and the packers are, with 25 unanswered points, on their way to a wigbig win. in the meantime, you have sherrod picking up a lot of experience. you have newhouse who had to flip over from the right side to the left side. so that line is getting rebuilt on the fly and the packers are as hot as they have been,
including last season when they roared down the stretch. baugh bulaga choo come back next week. caught by roddy white for a 1s. >> cris: adjustment by dom capers to go to the bump and run, man-to-man coverage and trust these corners on the outside and begin to send pressure, just changed the complexity of this football game. it really did. he rolled the dice. they weren't getting any pressure. took some chances and these corners won the battle. >> al: from the 35 on first down. ryan throws and then it will be caught. flag is thrown. gonzalez, for the moment, would have one more career catch than tim brown, the longtime raider. pending call. >> referee: prior to the pass, holding, number 55 of the defense. penalty is declined. result of the play is a first down. >> al: penalty on bishop.
catch by gonzalez. tony has caught five tonight. ryan. gonzalez now with a half dozen. >> cris: it was interesting talking to dom capers about this defense. he said after four weeks last year, we weren't very good either. then, all of a sudden, it started to come together and he thought one of the keys was b.j. raji. he got so much better in the second half of the season and through the playoffs. finally creating some pass rush from the inside and he thought that fs onewas one of the keys. >> al: second and eight. it will be third down and eight. ryan, that hot start tonight, but if you look at the overall numbers, 167 yards for him through the air and for rodgers, he is just four shy of 400. >> cris: and they just have to be shaking their heads, the atlanta falcons, to come out and put 14 points on the board and
just go up and down the field and then the spigot got turned off. i mean, it was a goose egg after that. >> al: ryan started 8 of 10, which means he would be 10 of his last 21 under 50%. and that is intercepted off the deflection. that is jarrett bush who will run it back. bush still going. harry douglas is there and finally coming in to make the tackle would be jacquizz rodgers. >> cris: we talked about the depth of these wide receivers and so many guys making catches. how about the depth on the defensive side? >> al: how about another dropped pass by roddy white in effect? >> cris: well, it was charlie peprah, a backup safety, who made the interception earlier. now it's jarrett bush, a backup cornerback who comes in and makes the play.
i thought it was, to some degree, the corners and their playoff of tramon williams and sam shields and charles woodson a year ago that turned this team around defensively and maybe it will be starting after tonight. >> al: well, the falcons will go to 2-3 so they have already lost as many games as they did all of last season when they were 13-3, with a number one seed in the nfc. they start 5-0. they go home to face the winless rams. meanwhile, atlanta stays here to take on carolina and the amazing cam newton, who almost pulled one out today against the saints, but new orleans won. and the saints put some more room between themselves and last year's nfc south champions. great job, great adjusting by the packers tonight and they score the last 25 points of the game and win it 25-14 in atlanta. postgame is next. .

[ male announcer ] save 10% on your groceries when you get a flu shot. that should make you feel better already. safeway. ingredients for life. after a spurtering start, the packers 5-0 with a victory. aaron rodgers continues to amaze. 26 of 39 for 396 yards and two touchdowns and remarkably 12 different receivers caught passes from rodgers tonight. he will receive questions from michele tafoya. >> michele: aaron, you guys were down 14-0.
you lose your left tackle chad liveton and then you got to kind of shuffle the offensive line. how did you adjust not only to stay in, but take over this game? >> we just stayed patient. you know? it was a tough game. i took a lot of shots and had to move around a little bit and shuffled marshall to the left side and running derek to the right side. they did a great job. you know? it was one of those games. the rhythm wasn't there all the me but we just stayed with it and stayed patient and knew the big plays were going to come and the defense did a great job after of first two drives. >> michele: you found 12 different receivers tonight. ties a team record. how were you able to get so many guys involved? >> the way it went tonight. a lot of guys played. they were playing a lot of soft coverage and take what the defense is giving you. but guys made big plays. james had a great catch and run. greg as well. jermichael dropped a couple but came up with a big play on the last drive and proud of our guys.
>> michele: play action so productive. how were you able to be productive even though the run game in the second half wasn't moving? >> it's about a good fake and the line keeping their pads down and us trying to make a play. it's been a staple of our offense. probably the last nine or ten games and it's no surprise winning those games. >> michele: aaron, congratulations. >> thanks a lot. >> thanks, aaron, thanks, michele. packers 5-op. it only other unbeaten team is the lions 4-0 who play tomorrow night against the bears. tony dungy your reaction to tonight's game, coach? >> i thought it was a great job by the packers and cris and al talked about the defensive adjustments that they made, but i thought aaron rodgers was spectacular tonight. you heard him talk about staying patient when they got down and i thought he really did that. they had to kick field goals. jermichael finley dropped a potential touchdown pass. he didn't force things. he didn't take chances. he stayed within the offense and got them rolling in the second half. i thought he was tremendous.
>> it's a pass happy league now. we all know that, tony. but, today, the steelers and the patriots were helped by their ground games. >> they really were. and i thought really, really critical. pittsburgh, ben roethlisberger, threw five touchdown passes but what really got them going was controlling the line of scrimmage again and getting that balance running the ball effectively, and the same thing in new england. tom brady, we expect to see the big numbers and the touchdowns but benjarvus green-ellis really won the game for them with a gutsy drive and pounding the ball in the fourth quarter to win it and i think that is what is going to happen. whoever comes out of the afc is going to be the team that gets that balance going and is able to run the football and be two-dimensional. >> tony, thanks. we turn to mike florio on nbcsports.com at profootballtalk. tomorrow you will see the eagles lose again today and drop 1-4 with a mistake-filled effort against the bills. if philly can't turn this thing
around who is the most accountable? >> the person no accountable is the man in charge of the football operations for the last 13 years in philadelphia and that is head coach andy reid. he is the person who is the architect of this team. the so-called dream team. signing free agent after free agent and almost showing off with some of the big names that he brought to philadelphia during the latter stages of off-season and andy reid is a man responsible for firing defense coordinator sean mcdermott and making the offensive line coach one castillo the new defense coordinator and andy reid is ultimately responsible for undisciplined team. bad penalties. stupid mistakes. untimely errors. bad tackling. you name it, andy reid is the guy ultimately responsible. doesn't mean he gets fired if they don't make the playoffs but when you go all in there has to be a consequence if if doesn't work out and so far it's not working out for the eagles. >> key injuries. mario williams with the texans.
>> fear he has a torn pectoral muscle. if so he'll be out for an extended period of time. mri coming tomorrow in seattle. tarvaris jackson will have an mri tomorrow on another pectoral muscle injury and could be out for some time depending on the results of the mri in tampa, gerald mcgo, ankle injury. another mri coming tomorrow. no mri necessary for 49ers receivers josh morgan. a broken ankle suffered in garbage time of that 48-3 win over the buccaneers. they were up 41-3 when he went down with the broken ankle. >> here in atlanta a victory for the packers. in the process they lose offensive lineman chad clifton what appears to be a serious hamstring injury. nfl films all-access look at the raiders emotional win over the texans which came down to the final play of the game.
it's on nfl turning point on versus. here in atlanta, once again, packers beat the falcons 25-14. al and cris will be back to wrap things up after this. . "where's the beef!" "where's the beef!"

>> al: he has been tremendous. now, in the division you have the two undefeated teams, green bay 5-0 and tomorrow night detroit plays against chicago. if chicago wins that game, very important game obviously, for the bears. minnesota next week. >> cris: and minnesota bounces back. when they got the big lead today, i thought oh, no, don't think don't tell me they will blow another one. they have blown huge leads. today they poured it on and finished the way i think everybody thought the vikings would play this year. >> al: always a good scene, shy town next sunday, the windy city. in atlanta tonight, 25 unanswered points by the green bay packers, as they win. the final score, 25-14. until next week, from chicago, al michaels and cris collinsworth and michele tafoya. our crew headed by fred dugelly
