Falcons trying to find groove with Packers next

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons are still trying to find their groove.

With the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers coming to town, it's about time.

The Falcons (2-2) are coming off another uneven performance against struggling Seattle, racing out to a big lead on the Seahawks, then barely hanging on for a 30-28 victory.

In many ways, the win typified the first quarter of the season for Atlanta, which was projected as a Super Bowl contender but had yet to put together a complete game.

The offensive line had been the biggest concern, but it did a good job Sunday. Now, coach Mike Smith is worried about the defense, which was burned for 28 points by a Seattle team that had scored just 30 in its first three games.
