The Atlanta Falcons defeated the Green Bay Packers 44-21 to go to Super Bowl 51 in Houston. Here is how Twitter is handling the Falcons winning the NFC.
For the first time since the 1998 NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons are Super Bowl bound. Atlanta defeated the Green Bay Packers 44-21 in the final game in the history of the Georgia Dome. The Falcons will await the winner of the AFC Championship between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots.
Atlanta will represent the NFC in Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium in Houston. The Falcons made it to the Super Bowl by getting the No. 2 seed in the NFC Playoffs to achieve a first-round bye. Atlanta would defeat the Seattle Seahawks 36-20 in the NFC Divisional Round and Green Bay 44-21 on Sunday in the NFC Championship.
The Falcons were led by a historically dominant offense and an improving, but quick defense. In only his second season as a head coach, Dan Quinn has brought his NFC South franchise one win away from its first Super Bowl Championship in franchise history.
Since Atlanta has not played in a championship game in quite some time, let’s check out to see how Twitter is handling the Falcons’ second-ever trip to the Super Bowl.
Overall, it looks to be a good time in the ATL. It was hard for Twitter to poke fun of the Falcons for wiping the floor with the Packers in the final game of the Georgia Dome. Atlanta took a quick lead and never looked backed.
Congratulations, Atlanta! Rise Up! Good luck in Houston in two weeks. Get ready for an all-out aerial assault, AFC. Atlanta is going to be bring it at NRG.
