The Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers renew their rivalry on Sunday in the Georgia Dome.

And this time it’s for all the NFC marbles.

The Falcons host the Packers in the 2017 NFC Championship Game at 3:05 p.m. ET. The game will air on FOX and the winner punches their ticket to Houston for Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5.

This will be the second meeting between Atlanta and Green Bay this season. The Falcons won 33-32 in Week 8 on a last-minute touchdown pass from Matt Ryan to Mohamed Sanu.

This is the third time they’ve faced each other in the playoffs and first since the 2011 Divisional Round game. The Packers won that game 48-21 in Atlanta. Green Bay holds a 2-1 series edge in postseason contests vs. Atlanta.

The teams have been pretty even since the turn of the century. In 11 meetings since 2000, Green Bay has won 6, including 3 of 5 in Atlanta.
