Atlanta Falcons: Falcon's Playoff Preview and Prediction

Atlanta Falcons: Falcon's Playoff Preview and Prediction

"But when you do get your opportunities, you've got to hit". "And it was a heartbreaking last 34 seconds". Then we're going to go out here and play. The Atlanta Falcons won the AFC South and their four-game winning streak to end the regular season left them at 11-5, tied for the second-best record in the NFC to earn a first-round bye. "It was a pretty clear message". He's just ready to play.

Saturday's playoff game is going to be a test of strengths in Atlanta. The Packers have been here before with a lot of the same guys, and they know how to handle the pressure.

Coach Pete Carroll said following the indoor practice that featured Notorious B.I.G. blaring off the walls of team headquarters that Prosise finishing practices all week is a positive sign in the rookie running back's return from the broken scapula he got November 20 at Philadelphia. These Seahawks are breaking down and becoming a fraction of the team they used to be. "But right before I got back to the tunnel ... walking off the field ..." The Seahawks defense couldn't close the deal in that game, and Seattle could find itself in the same situation this weekend, unfortunately, due to Thomas' absence from the lineup.

POSTSEASON BLUES: While Ryan is coming off the best season of his career, completing 69.9 percent for 4,944 yards and 38 touchdowns, his career mark in the playoffs is just 1-4. In reality, the backstory of this game is that two good general managers cut from a similar cloth put together two very good football teams who are strong against the opponent's weaknesses.

"It's been a great ride so far", said Wilson. It was fun though, and that's all I really care about when it comes to Madden.

"I know that you know that I know - there's definitely some of that", he said.

"I do", he said. "You had something so heavy on your back and you couldn't get it off". "It's nice to have it off". Luckily, we get a second round and a little bit of drama, too.

O'Neil: Will 4th time be the charm for Seahawks as road divisional playoff game? Seattle has one of the best defenses in the NFL, while the Falcons have one of the most potent offenses in the league.

Tony McDaniel #99 of the Seattle Seahawks reacts after a play in the third quarter against the New England Patriots during Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium on February 1, 2015 in Glendale, Arizona. The major difference now compared to Week 6 is this contest will be played in Atlanta. Since Toilolo made a splash as a secondary tight end to Jacob Tamme back in Week 6, there's no reason to think a now-healthy Austin Hooper couldn't do the same.

The Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons meet up Saturday in the NFC Divisional playoff round. They have won just three playoff games since visiting the Super Bowl in 1998. The Dak Prescott-Zeke Elliott combo hasn't faltered all season, but the playoffs can be a different animal.

"My mom thought it was going to her, for her birthday", Reece said; his mom's birthday was also Saturday. "I feel like I'm just playing my best and playing better than I ever have". On offense, Seattle will look to build on Thomas Rawls' franchise record 161 rushing yards against a young Falcons run "D' that permitted 4.5 yards per carry (25th in the NFL) and avoided an injured Rawls and C.J. Prosise last time".
