  1. John Zoul says:

    We’ll be ready on the road at the Falcons. Last year, we played flat in the first half, got behind, stormed back in the second half and allowed a last second (okay, .09 remaining)field goal, to lose by three. The key will be to shut down their running game.

  2. I think the key will also be special teams, that FG was due to a huge return by Weems, and then he returns one all the way in playoff game, touchbacks would be huge this weekend!
