Mike Smith credits the Falcons' success on the west coast to the performance of his players, not his travel schedule. Even so, Smith isn't about to mess with a winning formula. That means Friday was a travel day for the Falcons. Smith led a light practice, packed up his team and headed to the Atlanta airport for an afternoon flight to San Diego - two days before Sunday's game against the Chargers. The extra travel day has paid off for the Falcons, who are 5-0 on the west coast in Smith's five seasons. Smith's Falcons, 2-0 in Seattle, also have won at San Francisco, Oakland and San Diego. Smith says he copied the travel plan used by former Ravens coach Brian Billick. Smith worked on Billick's staff from 1999-2002. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
