One of the best playoff games ever. Seattle showed their mettle coming from 20 points down on the road and with :31 left in the game held a 28-27 lead. Then Matt “Matty-Ice” Ryan showed his maturity driving the Falcons to the winning field goal. This was the culmination of the Falcons building plan and maturation of both Coach Smith and his quarterback. We wrote back in August that it was time for Atlanta to ascend to a Super Bowl by winning their first playoff game under the new regime. Now they have that first win under their belt, they will be relaxed going into the NFC Championship.
If Seattle can come back from being down 20 I’m just not sure if the Falcons can hold offthe Niners in Frisco…
it was a great game! I was surprised that the Falcons drovedown the field to kick the FG to win. But then I remembered that Ryan did the same thing in his rookie year with no time outs to win the game!
