With a day known for for it’s outlandish stunts, both by the media and the players, it was the small amount of answers by Lynch that made the headlines.
Super Bowl XLVIII will feature the Denver Broncos and their top offense in the NFL against the Seattle Seahawks and their top defense in the NFL thanks to Seattle’s 23-17 win over San Francisco.
Seattle and San Francisco have each won their home game against each other. With the rubber match taking place at CenturyLink Field, which game will be played? The blowout 29-3 Seattle win in Week 2 or the 19-17 gritty win by the 49ers in Week 14?
It may not be the Beast Quake, but Marshawn Lynch had another great game against New Orleans in the Playoffs as Seattle was able to outlast the Saints 23-15 and advance to the NFC Conference Finals next weekend.
Seattle shouldn’t hope to follow the same route to as their previous victory over New Orleans if they want to advance to the NFC title game next week.
The first time the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints met in Week 13, it was for NFC Supremacy. Now in Week 19, the true force of the NFC will be revealed.
None of the Falcons starters got injured, but that’s about all that went well for the Dirty Birds this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Dominated in almost every statistic of the game, Seattle improves to 9-1 while sending Atlanta to 2-7 and all but ending their streak of five consecutive winning seasons.
No. This isn’t some die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan spouting the “any given Sunday” nonsense. With Seattle nearly losing their last two games to teams that Atlanta has beaten this season, a win for the Falcons isn’t impossible.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Atlanta Falcons have finished the season 13-3 and have locked up the top NFC Playoff seed. While the Falcon faithful do not want to relive the disastrous 2011 Green Bay game, the good news is this 2012 team is not like the 2010 team.
With quarterback Matt Ryan, head coach Mike Smith and company hoping to prove to Falcons faithful that the fourth time’s the charm, there are four things Atlanta needs to do in order to finally end the “one-and-done” stigma of their team in the NFL Playoffs.
