Will the Atlanta Falcons Make It All the Way to the Super Bowl in 2013?

The team is looking to make its way back to the Super Bowl for a second time in franchise history — what do you think their chances are?

Sunday's 30-28 win against the Seattle Seahawks puts the Atlanta Falcons one win away from a shot at the Super Bowl for only the second time in franchise history. Boston.com has a blow-by-blow recap of the game that had Atlanta Falcons tight-end Tony Gonzalez in tears

Next stop, a shot at the NFC Championship game in Atlanta against San Francisco on Jan. 20. Last time the two teams met, in game four in 2010, it was the Falcons who came out on top.

According to Suwanee Patch, the Falcons won the NFL South division in 2012 and have home-field advantage throughout the NFL playoffs. A win Sunday would put the Falcons in the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The last and only time the Falcons made an appearance in the Superbowl, in 1998, were defeated by the Denver Broncos.

So how do you see the Falcons chances against the San Francisco 49ers on Jan. 20 in the NFC Championship game? And what about the team's Super Bowl chances — could this be the year the team goes all the way?

They just barely beat the Seahawks, who made a huge comeback in the second half (note to Falcons: there are two halves of a game and you have to keep tackling in the second. The Niners are peaking as a team at just the right time and are going to hand the Falcons their feathers next weekend. The Niners team we saw last weekend could plausibly beat the Patriots or the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

Don't let the huge comeback fool you, any NFL team is capable of coming back, this is nothing new, bottom line, The Falcons found a way to win, that is all that matters when advancing in this league Period!! The Falcons will beat the 49ers once again, do you think for a moment that it will be that easy to beat the Falcons at home when they just won the Divisional playoff and they have the best record in the league?

For the Falcons to also come back in 8 seconds is astounding, and we all know that the Falcons does it best when it comes to coming back from behind, especially in the 4th quarter, how could Seattle allow that?
