Matt Ryan Leads Falcons To 26-13 Playoff Win Over Rams

While the Rams hosted their first NFL playoff game in Los Angeles since 1986, they quickly fell behind 13-0, never led and lost 26-13 to the Falcons. Atlanta, as the sixth seed, will play at Philadelphia next week.  The defending NFC champions would not be denied, holding the Rams offense to 13 points and forcing two turnovers on special teams against the NFL’s best special teams unit. Quarterback Matt Ryan sacked three times in the first half, completed 21 of 30 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown.
