However, while the Falcons won their final four games to clinch the bye, the Seahawks' loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Christmas Eve knocked them down to the wild card round.

And it's not a bad plan, either, as Panthers' official team DJ, DJ Vinny, might have proven the psych out works during the recent Panthers/Seahawks game.

Jones had seven catches for 139 yards and a touchdown in the regular season meeting with ESPN crediting him with three catches for 40 yards when matched up with Sherman. They have produced two separate four-game winning streaks this season, and the Falcons have quickly become a scary team under head coach Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. "I thought we had some opportunities in this game to capitalize on, so I'm not going to comment regarding the foul or not on the last play".

The Seahawks dominated the visiting Lions at CenturyLink Field holding them to 231 total yards of offense in a 26-6 win. Then we're going to go out here and play.

Head-to-Head: The Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons have met in the postseason once before, the 2012 Divisional Playoffs, where the Falcons defeated the Seahawks 30-28 in the Georgia Dome.

Jones said if the referees are as hands-off as last time, he's going to be a little more hands-on.

"We're going to have to go out there and it's going to be a tough atmosphere on the road, " said middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wilson threw deep looking for wideout Doug Baldwin, but the ball was intercepted by.wide receiver Julio Jones, who was in the game to play defense for one play. "If they make the call, they make the call". How might what happened in that game help us find betting value on the Superbook's Seattle-Falcons proposition board? So just in case you're not sure what I'm playing... here's my playlist I made for Russell.

The president, whose powers have been suspended pending a ruling by the court, can not be legally forced to attend the hearings. On the morning of the Sewol's sinking, Yun said she was working with Park in her residence inside the Blue House compound.

Ryan's supporting cast has not been as great as Wilson's over his career. He threw for over 4,000 yards this season for the second year in a row and had 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had an MVP-caliber season this year and posted, by far, the best quarterback rating of his career.

None of it would have been possible without excellent play from Atlanta's offensive line, though.

Essentially it is what you'd hope for when two of the most complete teams in the National Football League square off. "But at the end of the day like I told the guys, I don't care if they know what we're in, be better than the guy in front of you". Do you see Quinn having an advantage knowing how Carroll runs his team? That means getting to Houston on February 5 for a chance to give the Falcons their first Super Bowl trophy.

The Seahawks, though, may have benefited from playing last week after their sluggish finish to the regular season. Ryan led the league with 9.3 yards per pass attempt, more than a full yard ahead of Tom Brady (8.2), who ranked second in that stat.

I think the point is Atlanta Falcons' fans shouldn't hesitate to feel confident about Saturday. A loss against the Seahawks will confirm that the Falcons are a team that's only unsafe in the regular season for many.

Jones downplayed going head-to-head with Sherman once again.
