I think it has to do with the media picking GB in the preseason as the "best team in the NFC," after a few months when it was apparent they weren't the best in the NFC the narrative switched to how "dangerous they could be if they make it in as a Wild Card." Now they just want to look super smart. Also I think the media doesn't favor Atlanta because they don't have a flashy style of play. Not to mention the media has been anointing Aaron Rodgers since he took over for Brett Favre. Now their golden boy has a shot and they're cheering him on lustily.
