The Falcons surge on! Atlanta is getting hot at the right time, and unfortunately for the LA Rams, are on a tear that no team wants to see right now. With their big win, the Falcons are heading to Philly next weekend. Here's what you need to know.
3. Julio Jones Continues to Dominate the Postseason
Julio Jones picked up right where he left off last postseason with another dominating performance, catching nine passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. If Julio can keep this up, this offense can steamroll whatever defense is in their way.
2. The Falcons Dynamic Backfield Can Carry This Team
Of course, for Julio Jones and the Falcons wide receivers to get open, the running game has to be existent. With Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman trading plays and keeping each other fresh, this offense can continue to keep things balanced and lethal.
1. Atlanta's D Needs to Stay Strong to Move On
The key for the Falcons though will be their defense. We know Atlanta can score, but it'll be harder and harder for them to do so as they face the tough defenses in the NFC. If the Falcons want to stay alive, the defense needs to keep opposing offenses at a slower pace.
