Packers win Joe Philbin’s debut, Falcons’ collapse continues

When the schedule came out, today’s Falcons-Packers game looked like it should be a December battle between NFC playoff contenders. This game was anything but.

Packers hoped to avoid charade over final four weeks

The Packers absorbed a surprising amount of criticism for firing coach Mike McCarthy with four games left in the season.
