Falcons at Rams - Live Blog

The Atlanta Falcons have had a tough year getting back to the playoffs and now they face one of the most dangerous Wild Card teams in the NFL in the Los Angeles Rams.

The Los Angeles Rams (11-5) have turned their Jeff Fisher bullshit into a Wade Phillips powerhouse and will host the reigning NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons (10-6) in their first playoff game since returning to L.A.

The Falcons had to scrape and claw their way into the playoffs in a tough NFC conference that featured three 9-7 teams. With their offense, they will always be dangerous, but they might just be facing the most dangerous Wild Card team in the NFL this week.

With a 149 point net differential, the Rams are tied with the Jaguars with the third most behind only the Eagles and Patriots. What that number shows is that they blow a lot of teams out by wide margins. I think that happens again today, with the Rams pulling away late to win 36-24 over the Falcons.
