Rams lack National Football League playoff experience but not confidence

Falcons hitting road back to Super Bowl with 26-13 win in LA Rams lack National Football League playoff experience but not confidence

Don't forget that earlier in the season, it was an over the hill, out of the game Mike Martz who lobbed some fire towards the first time/first year head coach saying that the Rams hired a buddy for Goff.

The Falcons are seeking a different kind of history. They clinched the final spot in the playoffs and are the only team in the NFC to return from a year ago.

The NFL playoffs open Saturday night.

This isn't last season's version of the Falcons, which boasted one of the greatest offences of all-time. That 42-14 loss to the Falcons was a catalyst in the Rams' transformation from LA laughingstocks to NFC West champions, because coach Jeff Fisher was sacked the next day.

The Falcons didn't meet those expectations during the season.

Los Angeles scored the final 10 points of the second quarter to cut Atlanta's lead to 13-10 at half-time. Therefore, what can we expect from these two teams in the playoffs?

Kickoff is 5:15pm on Saturday, January, 6 at the LA Coliseum. It comes in ranked eighth in the league in total yards. The team averaged 1.7 touchdowns in the red zone this season, down from 2.7 last season.

What makes him believe that? They are putting up 30 points per game. "It's hard to stop their running game, and the quarterback can move the football". "I try to focus or worry or lend my brain space to trying to win games".

It doesn't seem like a big concern to the Rams, but they're well aware of the fact that they don't have many players who have "been here before", so to speak. But the team was a disgusting 1-for-5 in the red zone.

The Falcons opened the second half with two time-consuming drives that resulted in Bryant field goals, including a 54-yarder that gave Atlanta a 19-10 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Making sure the Rams' offense has the ball as little as possible will be imperative in coming away with another playoff victory, as Los Angeles led the league in scoring at 29.9 points per game. The three takeaways, all of them coming on Cam Newton interceptions, ended up being the only time this season that Atlanta forced three turnovers in a game.

The loss was a disappointing end to the season for a resurgent Rams' team.

The Atlanta Falcons will face the Los Angeles Rams Saturday night in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs.

The Falcons' experience in the playoffs could come into play. "I certainly have a lot of respect for the guys I play against week in and week out, and I imagine they feel the same way". Too often this season, they haven't. He doesn't want to get caught up in discussions about his legacy, and whether he has what it takes to win a Super Bowl. Can they flip a switch? "It doesn't matter where we're going, we're going".
