Atlanta Falcons first team through to SuperBowl LI

Atlanta took out the NFC Championship defeating Green Bay 44-21 in the early game and now the AFC Championship game will decide who they face at the Super Bowl in Houston.

In the NFC showdown, Atlanta dominated from start to finish to lock in their place at Super Bowl LI in two weeks time.

The Packers secondary and defensive line were unable to keep Atlanta’s firing offense in check, and quarterback Matt Ryan took full advantage to take his team to a 26-0 lead at halftime.

League MVP front-runner Ryan threw four touchdown passes by the third quarter for a feat not seen in a conference championship game since Arizona’s Kurt Warner in 2008.
