The Seattle Seahawks, a team known for its well-built barricade, suffered a massive blow when Atlanta Falcons toppled their defense in overwhelming fashion.
Many were flabbergasted by the home team’s amazing performance especially against a team that’s well known for their defense.
In its most basic sense, a team that specializes in offense will have to somehow compromise with their defense. A defense team, however mediocre their offense is, shouldn’t have trouble penetrating an offense-specialist’s defense.
But the Falcons defied logic.
Momentum Shift – The Comeback Is Real
The Seahawks had it in the first quarter by a 7-yard touchdown pass by Jimmy Graham which had spectators think that it was going to be an easy piece.
But an unfortunate turn came for Wilson when he got stepped on by his center – this meant for Seattle to move to their own end zone for a safety.
Before the half ended, the Falcons gained seven more on a 14-yard pass by Matt Ryan to Tevin Coleman leading the team with 19 against 10 of Atlanta into halftime.
High Performance – Matty Ice Dominates
After gaining the momentum after the first half, it was clear that the Atlanta Falcons is attacking head on and on full force.
Notably, Matt Ryan and Brian Poole’s consistent performance led to the team’s incredible play against the Seahawks. Ryan being clearly the game’s MVP for his amazing show of skills.
Interceptions by rookie linebacker Deion Jones was all it took for the Seahawks give up finding the light at the end of the tunnel.
Despite the heavy attacks and surprisingly adequate defense presented by the Falcons, Seahawks still gave the offense a tough time.
But the interceptions were too lethal for the Seahawks.
The Falcons dazed the Seahawks in their final game stats wherein the former had 69 plays against 54 of the latter which meant an over-all great performance by the team.
A massive 122-yard difference in total was painful to look at for the Seahawks and Seahawks fans alike.
In the end, it was obvious that the Falcons defeated the Seahawks by storm.
The Falcons have had a rough start early in with Matt Ryan earning 0-4 during the playoffs but in this game his 2-0 wherein he threw a total of 344 yards and three touchdowns.
This victory paved a ticket for the team to fly into the NFC Championship games for the fourth time in 51 years.
