The Atlanta Falcons beat out the Green Bay Packers 44-21 in the NFC Championship Game Jan. 22, securing a slot in the 51 Super Bowl.
The Falcons’ win over the Packers is largely thanks to their strong offense, with quarterback Matt Ryan completing 27 of 38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns. At halftime, the Falcons were up 24 points while the Packers remained at zero. Despite efforts by the Packers to catch up in the second half of the game, the Falcons held on to their lead and finished the game 44-21.
The game was the last one the Falcons will play in the Georgia Dome as they’re moving to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the 2017 season.
The victory places them in Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots, who beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 36-17.
Super Bowl LI is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 5, at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
