Bijan Robinson had 124 yards on 19 carries and Tyler Allgeier 48 on 16. The QB went 19-of-32 for 237 yards, one TD, one INT, and a 79.8 rating.

On the first offensive play, the Packers used a flea flicker, with AJ Dillon tossing the ball back to Jordan Love. 

Dontayvion Wicks forced an A.J. Terrell defensive pass interference call, resulting in a 44-yard gain to the Falcons' 31.

Musgrave received an 8-yard slant to start the second quarter. Dillon was called down a yard short of the first down after receiving the inside handoff.

The Packers led 7-3 with 13:33 remaining in the first half after Love's 9-yard push throw to Jayden Reed, who scored his first NFL touchdown.

The second half started with Jenkins out with a knee injury. Instead of intercepting Rudy Ford on second down and Quay Walker on third, the Packers missed.

The Packers gained the first down with a Dillon 3-yard run and a Samori Toure 7-yard throw on an out. Love's 16-yard rollout throw to Doubs along the sideline moved the ball to the Atlanta 38.

The Packers held Allgeier and Robinson to 1-yard gains on first and second down and put Atlanta in fourth-and-4 following a 4-yard completion to London on third down.
