NFL: What We Learned From the Championship Round

January 21st 2013 02:49
San Fransisco @ Atlanta
Well if the Falcons' reputation for choking wasnt evident in last week's squeaker you better believe it has resurfaced this week. Their loss wasnt as much about not playing well, but making untimely mistakes. Matt Ryan's two turnovers came on huge drives both in which the Falcons looked poised to score on. In addition, a bonehead roughing the passer penalty on third down kept the 49ers drive alive in which this drive resulted in a touchdown. C-H-O-K-E. The Falcons played well enough to win and just shot themselves in the foot one too many times. On the other side, the 49ers made a huge statement. They did not get rattled when they fell in an early 17-0 hole. Rather they stayed focused and kept making the huge plays that fueled this comeback. They absolutely showed the world why they belong in the Super Bow.

Baltimore @ New England
Three words, RED ZONE DEFENSE. Five trips to the redzone and the Ravens did not allow Tom Brady to throw a touchdown pass in the second half. In addition, the Ravens held the Patriots scoreless during the ENTIRE second half. After EVERYONE had the Patriots cruising through this game and waltzing into the super bowl the Ravens have once again defied the odds. As we expected the momentum shifted in this one on a defensive play as Pollard jarred the ball loose from Ridley when New England seemed to be on a promising drive. The injury of Talib really seemed to be a factor as well. However, for the second straight AFC championship game, Joe Flacco has outplayed the legend that is Tom Brady. Screw what the odds are, I wouldnt bet against this team.
