Another trip to Atlanta to face the Falcons and another loss by the Green Bay Packers. Mike McCarthy’s club has visited the state of Georgia three times in less than a year and watched Dan Quinn’s team hang 33, 44, and 34 points, respectively, on his squad. On Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Falcons’ quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 252 yards and one score in his clubs 11-point win. In fact, in three games vs. Green Bay since 2016, the league’s reigning MVP has completed a combined 73.3 percent of his throws for 932 yards and eight touchdowns without an interception.

Four of those scores came in the 44-21 win in the 2016 NFC Championship Game. So what can the Packers do about their vulnerable secondary?

Help is on the way

In late April in Philadelphia, the Green Bay Packers opted to trade out of the first round of the NFL Draft and wound up with a pair of second-round selections. Cornerback was the team’s biggest need and general manager Ted Thompson opted for University of Washington prospect Kevin King. It wasn’t long before he was making an impression with his new teammates. “The guy is going to be good for us. Real good,” stated teammate Davon House to Ryan Wood of USA Today Network-Wisconsin. “The one thing I can say, he’s not scared of anyone — as a rookie, too.

I remember him talking about how he wanted to be on Julio the whole game. Usually, most players — not just rookies — aren’t saying that."

All told, that’s great news for defensive coordinator Dom Capers and the Packers, who can’t seem to find a solution to most passing attacks in the league. You will recall this was a team that allowed 32 touchdown passes during the 2016 regular season and eight more such scores in three postseason contests.

What to address

Kevin King has played in both games for the Green Bay Packers this season. He’s totaled three stops and knocked down one pass. With Davon House injured and held out of practice earlier this week, it’s highly conceivable that the rookie could make his first NFL start on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. That could mean some one-on-one action against one of the best wide receivers in the league in A.J.

Green. Although the Bengals haven’t scored a touchdown in two games this season, the seven-year pro has hauled in 10 passes for 141 yards. It’s not a bad way for Kevin King to get his feet a little wetter this weekend. And if the rookie cornerback succeeds, the Packers may finally be finding some answers in this much-maligned secondary.
