  • The Falcons’ ability to get to Jared Goff could be crucial in the Wild Card game matchup

But the Falcons win over the Rams was one of the more impressive games Atlanta would have in the playoffs until their wins over the Seahawks and Packers.

Aaron Donald came after Matt Ryan relentlessly, as he does.

The wild-card game against the Los Angeles Rams at the Coliseum on Saturday night will provide answers about the offense and the defense.

The Atlanta Falcons will battle the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round of the postseason.

The game between the Falcons and Rams will kick off at 8:15 EST and will be televised on NBC. But things shifted for the Falcons in the third quarter, when they finally got a consistent ground game going.

The Falcons didn't meet those expectations during the season.

In some respects, the Falcons could now been seen as playing with house money.

On paper, Philadelphia may seem like they would have an advantage facing an Atlanta team as the No. 6 seed, but also keep in mind this is a team on a mission looking to redeem themselves after suffering the worst Super Bowl collapse in National Football League history last February when they blew a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots.

U.S. to Withhold All Security Assistance to Pakistan
But it could end up backfiring by diminishing the cooperation between the USA and Pakistan to combat terror groups in the region. Conditions for the country's religious minorities, including Hindus, Christians and Ahmadis , are widely considered poor.

"I love the resiliency and the toughness of this team", Falcons coach Dan Quinn said.

On the other side, it'll be a workhorse handling the load for the Rams. Postseason experience can be invaluable during the pivotal moments of a playoff game, but Los Angeles is also not burdened by the ghosts of playoffs past.

Phillips knew he could work with McVay based on the young coach's relationship with Phillips' son, Wes, who served as McVay's tight ends coach for the previous three seasons while McVay ran the Washington Redskins' offense.

The NFL playoffs open Saturday night. Per OddsShark, Los Angeles is a 5.5-point favorite, with an over/under total of 48.5 listed. "I'm lucky to be where I am", Phillips said recently. The playoffs will either affirm that something was just off this season or much of what we've seen since September never mattered.

The Falcons have won the past four meetings, the most recent being a 42-14 victory in 2016.

The Falcons have the game's best wide receiver in Julio Jones, a veteran quarterback in Matt Ryan, and accomplished running game with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

Mariota had 205 yards passing and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 22-yard strike to Eric Decker with six minutes left.

No one in the National Football League is as hot as Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley following two incredible performances against the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans to close his regular season.
