Eagles will face Falcons in Divisional Round after Rams exit playoffs early

Clinging to a six-point lead midway through the fourth quarter, Matt Ryan connected with Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown to put the Falcons up 26-13, sealing the win with 5:43 remaining.

Will the playoff-seasoned Falcons prove their experience to be invaluable against a green Rams team?

Los Angeles scored the final 10 points of the second quarter to cut Atlanta's lead to 13-10 at half-time.

"If we do that, and we're locked in for practice and walkthroughs, that's going to give us the best chance to be successful".

In fact, the Rams, who averaged 14.0 points per game last year and 29.9 points per game this year, were just the second team in National Football League history to go worst to first in scoring. Jones had nine catches for 94 yards. The sixth-seeded Falcons, who improved to 11-6 with the win, never trailed against the Rams. Despite missing four games with injury, Woods set a new career high in yards by 82 (781). They are a young team and Goff, just in his second season, hooked up with rookie receiver Cooper Kupp for a second-quarter touchdown pass.

Atlanta Falcons S Keanu Neal (22) and OLB De'Vondre Campbell are part of the defensive team that will face the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Wild Card Round this weekend. The Rams had a streak of 10 straight losing seasons, but turned things around under first-year coach Sean McVay.

Goff finished 24 of 45 for 259 yards. Behind Freeman and Tevin Coleman on the ground, Atlanta had a 15-minute advantage in time of possession.

It doesn't seem like a big concern to the Rams, but they're well aware of the fact that they don't have many players who have "been here before", so to speak.

The defense is better than a year ago, moving into the top 10 in scoring and total yards for the first time at the end of the regular season in 1998 - when the Falcons advanced to the Super Bowl. The Falcons have been up and down this season, but they advanced to the next round, where they'll get a crack at the Eagles, who are playing with backup quarterback Nick Foles.
