California Dreamin': Falcons Begin Road Back to Super Bowl vs. Rams

08 January 2018, 01:32 | Ken Black

Kickoff is 5:15pm on Saturday, January, 6 at the LA Coliseum. The Falcons, on the other hand, have 143 games of playoff experience as a team - second-most in the conference.

The Rams dream season ended abruptly on Saturday night with the reigning NFC champion Atlanta Falcons showing Sean McVay's team what it takes to win in the playoffs. "We've been tested. I thought we've come through the fires to the other side together as one brotherhood".

It's going to sting for a while for the Rams and for their fans, both in St. Louis and Los Angeles, because the wounds are still fresh and there won't be any more games until August.

Goff, who looked to struggle early on, finished 24 of 45, for 259 yards and 1 touchdown, while running back Todd Gurley would finish a strong 2017 campaign with 101 yards on 14 carries. "It's about giving yourself the opportunity this time of the year to compete and play in games like this and win games like this".

The touchdown reception was the seventh for Jones in eight postseason games. Quarterback Matt Ryan, who hails from Exton, Pennsylvania and played his high school ball at Philadelphia's Penn Charter, won NFL MVP honors but completed just 18 of 33 passes for 267 yards that day with a touchdown and an interception for a season-low 78.7 passer rating. After that season, Quinn jumped back into the coaching ranks in the NFL, and he remembers scouting Gurley II when he declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.

The game between the Falcons and Rams will kick off at 8:15 EST and will be televised on NBC.
