The Atlanta Falcons had a great run during the regular season. Who can complain? Thirteen wins and only three losses. An outstanding performance from many players on the team, but a great overall effort from the team as a whole. Here are some of the players accomplishments:
Matt Bryant kicked his longest field goal this season …62 yards.
Julio Jones with a total 10 touchdowns. He caught a total 79 passes for 1,198 yards. And received his first Pro Bowl nomination
Matt Ryan threw for 32 touchdowns during the regular season. He had a total of 4719 passing yards.
Toni Gonzalez became the first Tight End to score 100 touchdowns.
So as you can see, the Falcons definitely have the talent. Let’s see if they gave their best effort in the NFC championship game.
