Man, I didn’t see this kind of a beat down coming. Even with Mike McCarthy coaching on the road in the playoff game.
But it’s official- the Falcons are back in the Super Bowl by winning their second ever National Football Conference championship.
Final score: Atlanta 44, Green Bay 21

Congrats to the new generation of Dirty Birds. Have no issue admitting I was wrong about their chances due to their playoff history, but that defense took care of business and The Son Matt Ryan was, well, The Son Matt Ryan.
Next up: Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on mute as New England hosts Pittsburgh for the AFC title and the other Super Bowl spot. Nothing like a day of championship football in January. The Son and his man Mighty Dan Quinn await the winner.
Again congrats to the Falcons and their fans.
