The last match in a Georgia Dome was a good one for the Atlanta Falcons. The crowd was on fire against the Green Bay Packers, just like this Falcons’ offense was all game long. They went out with a bang and with a Super Bowl berth secured in the last duel at this historic stadium.
Falcons made a big statement on their first drive as they went straight to the end zone. Packers’ defense was helpless against this Kyle Shanahan offense. They were mixing things up, going to Sanu and Julio while also running the ball with Freeman and Coleman. The Packers couldn’t do a thing to stop them in the first half.
The defense for the Falcons also stepped up as they forced a couple of turnovers and held the Packers to 0 points in the first half. Green Bay did get on board in the second half of the game, but that still didn’t stop Atlanta scoring points themselves. The big lead was never in danger, and nobody thought that the Packers are going to be able to come back from that big of a hole.
Matt Ryan was great as he threw for 4 TDs and even ran for one score. We don’t want to take the credit away from him, but we have to give it up to the Kyle Shanahan who is doing an amazing job with this Falcons offense. They are using all of their weapons and have made defenses look foolish for a couple of games in a row. At the end of the day, the Atlanta Falcons are moving on to the Super Bowl after beating the Packers 44:21.
