The importance of a Falcons bounce back

It started so well for the Atlanta Falcons. We all went absolutely nuts, and to this day I’m pretty sure you all heard me yelling from my sofa in England as we squeaked past the Saints in overtime. Matty Ice lived up to his moniker and more. We bounded into Week 2, the Cincinnati Bengals […]

Falcons Continue Playoff Run

With Sunday’s victory over the Seahawks, the Falcons became one of the final four teams in the playoffs.  Atlanta thoroughly dominated the Seahawks in the first half to a tune of 20-0.  The second half was a different story.  The offense fell apart completely, scoring only 6 points while Seattle clawed there way back into the […]

Falcons Will Face Seattle

The Seahawks defeated the Redskins on Sunday and not have the luxury of heading to Atlanta to face the Falcons.  Seattle is one of the hottest teams in the NFL with 6 straight wins and 8 in their last 9 games.  Seattle has been extremely impressive this year on the shoulders of Marshawn Lynch and […]

Giants @ Falcons

A matchup of NFC division leaders should be a very interesting game.  Matt Ryan and the Falcons are coming off a loss to the Panthers last week and despite their NFC best record has not gotten a lot of respect around the league.  They have rarely blown out teams, which has lead to most people […]

Falcons @ Panthers

The road ahead before he playoffs becomes much easier at this point.  Three of the final four opponents for Atlanta have record below or at .500.  The first stop is Carolina, where the Falcons face the 3-9 Panthers.  Carolina’s season may have taken an all time low last week when they fell the one win […]

Jones and Samuel Active

Great news for the Falcons as Julio Jones, Asante Samuel, and Sean Witherspoon are all active for this game. Jones is important, but may be limited.  Atlanta still has plenty of weapons to ravage Tampa’s depleted secondary so forcing him into major playing time may not be the best move.  Samuel and Witherspoon are perhaps […]

Falcons Headed For Tampa

The Falcons face a surprising Buccaneers team this Sunday in what should prove to be quite a game.  Tampa Bay has gone through some devastating injuries this year, but has prevailed to a 6-4 record this season.  They have won their last 4 games to give them a legitimate shot at the NFC wild card.  Of […]

Falcons Host Cardinals

The Falcons are coming off their first loss of the year, but should rebound against a slumping Arizona team. The Cards started hot at 4-0, but since them have dropped 5 straight.  A major reason for that is that they lost their starting QB Kevin Kolb.  Kolb was far from incredible, but he gave them […]

Atlanta Heading to the Superdome

Usually when the Falcons face the Saints in November it is a much bigger deal.  Both teams have been locked at the top of the NFC South for years now, with Tampa and Carolina popping their heads up every once in a while.  This year is a little different.  Atlanta is 8-0 with a commanding […]
