NFL playoffs: Falcons set to play next Sunday in NFC Conference Championship

Mark your calendars.

We don’t yet know who the Falcons will be playing, but we do know when they’ll be playing, and as we all have busy lives and plans and calendars and such, it’s useful to know that information. I know I got that question a ton on social media yesterday.

So here’s the rub: The NFC Conference Championship Game will be played next Sunday, January 22nd, at 3:05 p.m. EST. It’ll either be against the Dallas Cowboys, in which case the game will be in Arlington against the #1 seed, or it’ll be against the Green Bay Packers, in which case it will be in the Georgia Dome yet again. By about 8 p.m. tonight, we should know exactly who Atlanta will be squaring up against, but for those of you who will be watching the game from home, you already have the most important info you need to know.

Who do you think Atlanta will wind up playing?
