Next stop, a shot at the NFC Championship game in Atlanta against San Francisco on Jan. 20. Last time the two teams met, in game four in 2010, it was the Falcons who came out on top.
According to Suwanee Patch, the Falcons won the NFL South division in 2012 and have home-field advantage throughout the NFL playoffs. A win Sunday would put the Falcons in the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The last and only time the Falcons made an appearance in the Superbowl, in 1998, they lost to the Denver Broncos.
So how do you see the Falcons chances against the San Francisco 49ers on Jan. 20 in the NFC Championship game? And what about the team's Super Bowl chances — could this be the year the team goes all the way?
