Falcons lead Rams 13-10 at halftime of NFC wild-card game

Jan 07, 2018, 06:52

Last year's meltdown in the Super Bowl has been well documented, with the Atlanta Falcons blowing a 28-3 lead and losing to New England. "Of course, you always get nervous".

"I don't think it is a concern", McVay said. Would you be surprised if he had a three interception game? It's like watching the Cleveland Browns go from 0-16 to 16-0 in one season (we can all dream), it's just exciting to be apart of.

Atlanta Falcons plus-6 vs. Los Angeles Rams, $660 to win $600: The Rams have the NFL's highest scoring team. He certainly faced some pressure kicks at Penn State, but for a guy who hasn't made a field goal longer than 23 yards in the National Football League, there's plenty of uncertainty. Video by Joe Curley. January 7, 1979, was the last time the Rams held a postseason game in L.A. They moved their home games to Anaheim Stadium the following season, and the franchise moved to St. Louis in 1995.

On the other side, the Rams are just 6-13-1 against the spread in their last 20 conference games, are 4-10-1 against the number in their last 15 home games, and have failed to cover in four of their last five playoff games, although their last postseason game was in 2004 so that trend is useless.

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

"He operates the same every week in the same rhythm and routine and that trickles down throughout the whole team". Jared Goff was 1-for-5 for 3 yards. In the last game I thought they moved the ball really well.

This was most evident on the Rams' possession right before the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter.

"You just come away so impressed with his even-keeled demeanor, the poise that he plays with". "I think he looks at it as a great opportunity and we trust that he's going to make good decisions".

With several hours yet before kickoff of the Wild Card matchup between the Falcons and Rams, public bettors are split on which team will cover.

Grady Jarrett has been the best player on the Falcons defense this year. "But, in terms of worrying about, is the moment too big or the playoffs?"

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

Playoff winning teams typically have proven quarterbacks, giving a significant edge to the Falcons.

If there is one thing we all know, it's that the 2017 Falcons offense is nothing like last year's.
