It sends the Falcons to their first Super Bowl appearance in almost two decades, while ending Green Bay's miraculous run from 4-6 to two wins away from the Lombardi Trophy.
One user said the shot wasn't so subtle, calling it a "ruthless move". Few places on earth have provided a better atmosphere than a Georgia Dome filled to the rafters, often with split fan bases trying to outdo the other in full-throated support of their respective teams. Ran out of gas and unfortunately couldn't find an answer to get their offense out of rhythm.
"Now remember, there were probably kids there with parents who had told them, 'We may never get a parade.' And then the Bears won it in '86". They had gone six consecutive games without a fumble on offense.
That's a long way of telling Bears fans that, rather than rooting hard against the archrival Packers, they might to start praying harder for Bears general manager Ryan Pace. But Green Bay had not confronted a force quite like the Falcons. It had recorded at least one (and a total of 16) during the eight-game winning streak.
That the Falcons were able to pick apart Green Bay's defense was not a shock. We've got to keep our heads down and keep going. "They converted a lot of third downs early and scored a couple touchdowns".
In seven months, the Georgia Dome will be reduced to a pile of concrete and steel, a testament to this city's never-ceasing development and seeming indifference to preserving history. Collins recovered, and the Packers limping defense was forced back onto the field. Someone on one of these two defenses must make a big play. "He's just a really tough competitor", DiMarco said.
Depending on who did the talking, Sunday's NFC championship game was supposed to end up either as a sky-high shootout or, less likely, a moderate scoring affair marked by more defense than offense.
When is Super Bowl 51?
The Falcons lost to the Denver Broncos in their only Super Bowl appearance 34-19. What if Rodgers's 52 teammates were roughly as good as the guys they were matched up against?
He wants the next one even more.
Xiaomi improves the Redmi Note 4's camera for India
To the eyes and spec-geeks, the 13MP camera on the Redmi Note 4 might seem a downgrade to the 16MP snapper on the Redmi Note 3. You still get the 3.5mm headphone jack on the device, and as with all Xiaomi devices, this one too comes with a IR Blaster.
To say Sunday's championship games were duds is being kind. "We're not afraid to back away from our expectations, and that's ultimately getting back to the Super Bowl and winning one, and we were so close, but so far".
Emotional moment: Pro Bowl right guard T.J. He admitted to still feeling pain in recent weeks.
An upcoming free agent this offseason, Lang said he felt some added emotion due to the uncertainty of whether Sunday was his final game with the team.
"I just saw a lane open up", said Ryan, who had a 1-4 record in the playoffs over his first eight seasons.
- Only three teams in history have averaged more than the Falcons' 6.7 Yards Per Offensive Play. That's what made Sunday's ending even more emotional given his pending free agency.
"We'll play on anything", Sanu said. I've been saying that since the beginning. Last summer team president and CEO Rich McKay and I chatted about new the stadium's digitialization gives it unique sponsorship opportunities.
As if the injuries to prominent receivers Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams haven't been enough of a concern for the Packers, a flu bug has been working its way through the Green Bay locker room this week.
Packers quote: "I knew what I was doing". There is an unspoken, unmatched cache for cities, for National Football League teams, that rises from winning. "I'll be ready to go".
Along with Lang's injury, starting left guard Lane Taylor (knee), right tackle Bryan Bulaga (concussion), defensive backs Micah Hyde (shoulder) and Kentrell Brice (shoulder), and linebacker Jake Ryan (shoulder) all left with injuries and didn't return.
Olivia Munn appeared to delicately reference the ongoing drama between her boyfriend and his estranged family as she expressed her pride for Rodgers and the Packers following their season-ending postseason loss to Atlanta Falcons.
