The Atlanta Falcons need to get through the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Conference Championship Game in order to advance to the Super Bowl.
The Falcons are 13-3. The Falcons just won in the Divisional Round. The Falcons are one win away from the Super Bowl, and that Super Bowl would only be the second in the team's history.
The time is now. Whether you want to say Rise Up, Go Falcons or something really weird like "Hammer of Thor!", you have to cheer on this team. The Falcons have to overcome a handful of injuries and a tough 49ers team to make it, but they are in the Georgia Dome and just beat a tough Seattle team. It can be done. Let's hope it is done.
Discuss the game here. We'll have new game threads for each quarter.
