Giants 24 Falcons 2
(first time in NFL Playoff History a team only scored 2 points)
Well Atliens, The Atlanta Falcons season is officially over. We had a decent year, but once again we fell to win a playoff game. This time, we faced a very beatable team (New York Giants) and still didn’t play to our potential. The Falcons offense played horrible. We couldn’t move the football nor convert on 3rd and 4th down when we needed to. Michael Turner was held to a minimal rushing day while Matt Ryan wasn’t productive either. The defense played hard but eventually let up in the second half due to lack of offense. Hopefully we can build from this loss and do better next season.
The Eagles kept there playoff hopes alive Sunday with a victory over the New York Jets 45-19. The Eagles are now 6-8, and 2-0 since Michael Vick’s return from injury. If the Giants lose next week and the Eagles beat the Cowboys, the Eagles will still be alive for the NFC East title.
