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.
The Atlanta Falcons went into the game against the New England Patriots knowing that they needed to score as many points as possible against Tom Brady and his bunch of unknown warriors. Head coach Mike Smith knew this as well, so when it came to a forth and two call, Smith had no qualms letting his team try and pick up the first. Had Matt Ryan not thrown an errant pass, the Falcons would have taken the lead and who knows what the outcome would be after that. Going 3-13 on third down over a span of four games certainly doesn’t help.
“There were a number of contributing factors to our inefficiency, not just one area, not just one group,” Mike Smith said Monday. “We had some protection issues. We had some routes that were not run right. We had some drops. We had some missed throws. I can assure you that we’re addressing it as a coaching staff, and we’re addressing it with our team.”
The Falcons will have the opportunity to right the ship as they take on the New York Jets , October 7th. Great tickets and seats are still available!
The Atlanta Falcons have entered talks with former New England Patriot and Oakland Raider Defensive Tackle Richard Seymour. Seymour became a free agent at the end of last season after three seasons with the Raiders. The seven-time Pro Bowler would be a great fit on a defense that has been known for caving in.
The Falcons are looking to clear up $4.5 million one Tackle Tyson Clabo’s release goes through channels.
