Watch Julio Jones pull in a touchdown reception in the National Football League playoffs

  • Los Angeles Rams coach Sean Mc Vay has been named

The Falcons are seeking a different kind of history.

Featuring a young team on the rise along with a trio of NFC South squads, there are plenty of intriguing storylines heading into the first round of the playoffs.

This isn't last season's version of the Falcons, which boasted one of the greatest offences of all-time.

The Rams reached the postseason by winning the NFC West. The Falcons defence is much improved, as defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel has taken the unit from bottom-five in the league in 2016 to top-10 in 2017. But the question of which team shows up for the playoffs lingers.

One of the factors that usually plays a big role in deciding which team wins a playoff game is turnovers, and the Falcons hope their three-takeaway performance against the Panthers can carry over to Saturday's game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Ramamoorthy has worked as a project manager in Metro Detroit for more than two years, defense lawyer Richard O'Neill said. But the "flight attendants did not report that anyone asked them to change seats other than the victim", Jawad said.

Gurley's had an MVP-caliber season. It's impossible to say until game time, but it's hard to believe McVay won't have his team prepared for Saturday's big game. But what makes them even more risky now is the way the defense has played. "We knew the physicality of style we wanted to play, so I definitely had an eye on him and looked at him and evaluated him". In the last game I thought they moved the ball really well. In the last two games, Bryant has accounted for 27 of the Falcons' points, booting nine field goals. He finished with just one-half of a sack and one hit, but even on the plays where he didn't take Ryan down, his presence was felt. But the team was a frightful 1-for-5 in the red zone.

The Falcons dominated time of possession, 37:35-22:25, and a pair of clock-chewing drives in the second half resulted in field goals before Matt Ryan floated a eight-yard touchdown pass to Julio Jones with 5:48 remaining to put the game out of reach. That's great for Bryant. Allen Rossum was a great return man for the Falcons.

This good news for the Falcons is that while the NFC playoff field is solid, there are no dominant teams. Would you be surprised if he had a three interception game?

Freeman scored from 4 yards out to push Atlanta ahead 13-0 in the first quarter. "When I say that, I have a whole lot of respect for experience and what that does and the value that it provides. I certainly have a lot of respect for the guys I play against week in and week out, and I imagine they feel the same way". Too often this season, they haven't. The Titans will find out Sunday whether they're headed to New England or Pittsburgh next.

Cooper is a Pro Bowl selection after a strong season on special teams. Can they flip a switch?

"If we do that, and we're locked in for practice and walkthroughs, that's going to give us the best chance to be successful".
