NFC Championship Live Stream
Watch NFC Championship Live Stream Online. The Atlanta Falcons host the Green Bay Packers in the 2017 NFC Championship Game. They played in week 8, with Atlanta winning 33-32.
The Green Bay Packers roll on to Atlanta to battle the Falcons in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. It’s the second time the two teams have met this season, with Atlanta winning the wild Week 8 match-up, 33-32, at the Georgia Dome.
In that game played Oct. 30, Packer fans will probably want to forget the name Mohamed Sanu. In that game, Sanu came up with 9 catches for 84 yards and a touchdown, but became etched deep in the memory of Packer fans for making several catches on the game’s decisive drive resulting in the Falcons victory.
In that game, the two teams enjoyed sparkling quarterback play, with Aaron Rodgers completing 28 of 38 passes for 246 yards and four (count ’em … four!) touchdowns.
Matt Ryan of the Falcons was equally good, completing 28 of 35 throws for 288 yards and three touchdowns.

How they Got There
The Packers earned the right to play in the NFC Championship game after a wild 34-31 victory over the NFC’s top-seeded Dallas Cowboys in Texas. In that game, Mason Crosby’s 51-yard field goal to give Green Bay a 34-31 victory over Dallas in the Divisional playoff was the longest game-winning field goal in NFL postseason history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The Falcons topped the visiting Seattle Seahawks 36-20 as Matt Ryan threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns, including a 14-yard touchdown pass in the waning moments of the first half after a 99-yard drive against one of the NFL’s better defenses in Seattle.
