Super Bowl Bound

Falcons and Patriots tangle in the NFL Finale

Matt Ryan has emerged as the most prolific quarterback in the NFL this season and has looked more like Tom Brady of old than Tom Brady does this season.  There is a reason for that, actually.  You see, Ryan studied Tom Brady and other high scoring NFL quarterbacks.

I decided I would spend the early part of the off-season studying the high-scoring offenses in the NFL that had personnel similar to ours here in Atlanta. – Matt Ryan

Super Bowl LI

Super Bowl LI will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.  Last year, Super Bowl 50 was the third most watched event in Television History and this year looks to be no different.  Tickets have been selling at a brisk pace and the weather for Super Bowl LI looks to be amazing as February is notoriously dry in Houston.

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab a friend and grab your tickets and witness history in person.

Falcons/Ryan prove too much for Saints

Matt Ryan proved that he was the man for the job behind center as he opened up the 2014 NFL season with a 37-34 Overtime victory over a very good New Orleans Saints team.  Offensively, the Falcons were firing on all cylinders as Ryan threw for a franchise high 448 yards and three touchdowns while the running game by committee was just as successful with 181 yards from scrimmage.

“He’s played a lot of games, made a lot of plays for us,” coach Mike Smith said. “But I was really impressed with his ability to extend some plays by moving around in the pocket. And he was very, very accurate. When you have (568 yards) of total offense and 448 through the air, your quarterback is playing well.”

The Falcons next face the Cincinnati Bengals on the road.  The Bengals are coming off a road win over the Baltimore Ravens.  Get your tickets and cheer on your Atlanta Falcons!
