To call the Falcons’ 30-28 win Sunday over the Seahawks a nail biter would be a gross understatement. It was the second best football game I’ve seen all season (I don’t think anything could top the BCS Championship!). It wasn’t the prettiest game, but it was good enough to put the Dirty Birds in the NFC Title Game for the first time since 2004. On top of that, it puts future Hall-of-Famer Tony Gonzalez that much closer to getting his first Super Bowl ring. He definitely deserves one.
The only thing that could’ve made it better is if it the game would have been in a beautiful outside stadium instead of in the dull light of the Georgia Dome. Anyways, here are some rectangles from the game.
