  • newNFC championship: Falcons look to rewrite history vs Packers (The Associated Press)
    The NFC championship is quite a mismatch. The Atlanta Falcons are playing as well as they have all season. For much of their existence, the Falcons were burdened with cartoonish ownership, laughable draft picks and horrific personnel moves such as trading away a strong-armed young quarterback in the early 1990s.

  • newPackers, Falcons set to give Georgia Dome explosive sendoff (Reuters)
    The Georgia Dome's final game could fittingly be an explosive one with the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers poised to blow the roof off the place when the NFL's most potent offenses clash on Sunday for a berth in the Super Bowl. With Atlanta's Matt Ryan and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers leading supercharged offences against leaky defenses, Las Vegas bookmakers have set a record high "over-under" -- or the total combined points scored -- for a playoff contest at 60 points. When both teams met in the regular season Atlanta won 33-32 after Ryan tossed a last-minute touchdown and many expect mo…

    If you're wondering what the Falcons are doing in the NFL's version of the Final Four with the Patriots, Steelers and Packers, you aren't alone. While recent history has belonged pretty much to New England and Pittsburgh in the AFC, and Green Bay is a usual suspect in the NFC chase to the Super Bowl, Atlanta seems like an interloper.

    Roger Federer showed against 10th-seeded Tomas Berdych that his first two wins against qualifiers at the Australian Open really were warmups. The 17-time Grand Slam champion, seeded 17th after spending six months on the sidelines last season, only needed 90 minutes to beat Berdych 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 in the third round. This was against a rival who played the Wimbledon final in 2010 and reached the quarterfinals or better in Australia the previous six years.

    NFC & AFC Championship Game schedule

    Are you ready for some Falcons? And Packers? And Patriots? And Steelers? There are but four teams left in the postseason now, and they are indisputably four of the best teams from this year. Nobody snuck in here that didn’t deserve to be here, and that includes our Atlanta Falcons (!), who are here for just the fourth time.On the AFC side, it’s two familiar teams. The Patriots have been the most successful team in the NFL over the past 15 or so years, while the Steelers are one of the all-time most successful teams and have won a couple of Super Bowls in that same span. On the NFC…

    Falcons defense vs. Packers offense: who wins?

    We all think we know how this matchup will turn out. Could the Falcons defense surprise us? Maybe? This Sunday, the two hottest offenses in the NFL meet in Atlanta for the NFC Championship. The Green Bay Packers have been on fire since Aaron Rodgers said the team would run the table and have gone 8-0 in that span behind some absolutely stellar play from Aaron Rodgers, and the Atlanta Falcons have been on fire all season due to the elite play of Matt Ryan and the versatility the team has shown in attacking opposing defenses. Whenever two offenses like this meet, it usually means bad thi…

    The longtime Falcons personnel man has chiefly been involved with contracts and salary cap management while in Atlanta. The 49ers are apparently just going to look to poach as many Falcons staffers as they can, in the hopes that some magic from that legendary Atlanta franchise might rub off on the historically woebegone San Francisco team.As 49ers' G.M. search shifts and morphs, keep an eye on Falcons director of football operations Nick Polk.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 20, 2017This makes sense in a few different ways.

    numberFire: Atlanta Falcons have had 15th best defense since the bye week

    They’ve really been coming together. We know the quick expectations for Sunday’s Falcons Packers game: each team’s elite offense cuts through the other team’s defense like a hot knife through a wheel of Green Bay cheese. It will almost certainly be a high scoring game, but the young defense (outside of Jonathan Babineaux, who just recently got his old man strength) has been stepping up in recent weeks.It’s been a little tough to explain. No one would suggest the Falcons have a top defense, but they have been steadily improving all season. How improved? Samuel Feldman of number…

    Falcons’ biggest trash talker on the field is also one of the team’s friendliest players

    If you saw Mohamed Sanu’s Mic’d Up segment, you’re not surprised. The Atlanta Falcons offense has been dynamic and difficult to defend all season, and with that success comes a lot of confidence. The top-scoring offense in the NFL in 2016 has had plenty of opportunities to trash talk opponents on the field. In previous years, if you’d asked guys in the locker room which offensive skill player talked the most trash, the answer would have probably been Roddy White. It wouldn’t have been close. This season, however, there’s a new top trash talker in town, and he’s Mohamed Sa…

    A list of the biggest storylines heading into Sunday. Staying balanced, somehow flustering Aaron Rodgers, and the cornerback group are featured. The stakes couldn’t be higher for the final game inside the Georgia Dome. The Falcons continued their hot streak in convincing fashion last Saturday. To avenge a loss in a high pressure situation was crucial for them. Besides the first drive, they were in complete control against Seattle. They need to remain composed against another battle tested opponent, who hasn’t missed the playoffs since 2008. Only New England is more experienced when…

    Falcons vs. Packers NFC Conference Championship channel, schedule, odds, and more

    The most important information for the most important game of the year thus far. For just the fourth time in franchise history, these Atlanta Falcons will play for the chance to head to the Super Bowl. This is, if we’re looking at the season they’ve had, one of the best shots they’ve ever had, and perhaps ever will. Their opponent is tough and has Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, and I do believe this game will wind up being close and possibly decided in Green Bay’s favor. But we’re also talking about an insanely motivated Falcons team with the best offense in the NFL and home fi…
