Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons dominate Green Bay Packers to book Super Bowl ticket
The Packers couldn’t run the table, as Aaron Rodgers suggested.

MATT RYAN LED a dominant offensive display as the Atlanta Falcons crushed the Green Bay Packers 44-21 on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl for only the second time in franchise history.

The Falcons, who will play either the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers in the 5 February NFL showpiece, laid the foundations for an emphatic NFC Championship victory with a first half performance.

The Falcons surged into a 24-0 half-time lead after overwhelming the Packers defense with their varied running and passing game in what was the team’s final game at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome before they move into a new home.
