Falcons see big challenge in facing Packer 'D'

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons don't see any great secret to beating a physical Green Bay defense. Simply, they must be the tougher team.

Like Atlanta, the Packers have won four straight, thanks in part to a defense that's allowed just 10 points in three games, the stingiest streak since New England did the same in December 2005.

Atlanta receiver Roddy White believes the NFC-leading Falcons must take advantage of their success at home. Since the start of 2008, Atlanta is tied with New England for the league's best home record at 18-3. The Falcons have won six straight at the Georgia Dome.

"We're looking, not ahead right now, but we need to get this win so we can have all our (playoff) games at home," White said.
