Allison returns as potential threat for Rodgers vs. Atlanta

Aaron Rodgers knows that nothing can change the outcome of last year's NFC Championship game.

"They won the game, they went to the Super Bowl. You can't rewrite history," Rodgers said. 

The 44-21 loss to the Falcons in last years playoffs still haunts many Packers fans. but it's a new year and a new team, and the Green and Gold are excited for the challenge of a rematch with Atlanta. 

"It's just two 1-0 teams who both feel like we can be there in the end of the season," Rodgers said. 

Rodgers hit six different targets for 286 yards and a touchdown in last week's win over Seattle. He'll have one more weapon to throw to on Sunday when Geronimo Allison returns from suspension to face the team he made his NFL debut against last season.

"My eyes are up this year," Allison said. I'm seeing guys flying around and I just want to put my foot in the ground, make people miss and get north." 

"We have a lot of depth with those guys and it will be nice to get them all on the field at one time," Rodgers said of his wide receivers. 

Number 12 currently has 298 career touchdown passes. He is on pace to become the fastest player in NFL history to reach the 300 touchdown mark.
