In a game that Atlanta once led by 20 points, Atlantans were subjected to a monumental collapse by our beloved Falcons. The offense once again disappeared in the second half, and behind the play of Russell Wilson Seattle fought back into the ballgame after intercepting a horrific Matt Ryan pass. After the interception, Atlanta proceeded to go 3 & out while Seattle kept scoring. John Abraham was out of the game, and there was no stopping Russellmania as it ran wild on us. The Seahawks rallied from 20 points down in the fourth quarter to take a 1 point lead with 31 seconds remaining… Matt Ryan threw a strike to Harry Douglas and another bullet to Tony G, setting up Matt Bryant with a game winning field goal. Matt Ryan just led the Falcons to one of the biggest moments in Atlanta sports history. Or did he? The kickoff was suppose to be a squib kick, but it came off the foot wrong. This gave Seattle another chance to break our hearts, but Julio Jones picks off Wilson in the endzone, securing a playoff victory. What a game folks! Now, exhale.... Atlanta faces San Francisco next week for the NFC Championship. There is a lot to talk about, the miscues, the big plays, the coaching staff. What are your thoughts about the Falcons huge win today?
