Falconers got the ball first and drove down on The field for a touchdown, but not without any controversy. On back-to-back missions of WR Julio Jones, covering 28 and 19 meters, Packers interim car dealer Joe Philbin challenged both receptions.

Three players later took Adams into a 7-yard TD strike, and the game was tied.
Packers DL Kenny Clark left the game at the next game at Falcon's next run. RB Tevin Coleman ran three straight times for 19 yards, and TE Austin Hooper caught an 11-yard pass. RB Ito Smith then ran twice for 8, and QB Matt Ryan found WR Mohamed Sanu for 8 meters to convert on third and second. On the next third-and-2 match, Ryan handed the ball as he tried to throw, and the ball went back for a loss of 16 yards, with Coleman recovering from Falcons.
K Matt Bryant then came up very short on a 53-meter field goal attempt, Falcon's first missed field goal for the season.
Packers followed a three-and-one, as a deep shot for TE Jimmy Graham on the other side was broken up near the finish line. Rodgers was dismissed in third place when the quarter ended.
