On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons face their toughest test of the 2016 season, and in order to best the vaunted New England Patriots, they must accomplish these five Defensive and Special Teams feats to emerge as Super Bowl LI champions.
Without a doubt, the New England Patriots will be the toughest out for these 2016 NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots can score points in bunches, and in many different ways. They also boast the highest rated scoring defense in the league.
The Atlanta Offense will be tested, and will have to pass that test with a historically high number of points scored to have a chance. That said, the Falcons’ Defense and Special Teams could be the difference.
The Offense gets all of the love and national attention, but football is a three-phase game. If the Atlanta Defense and Special Teams can accomplish the following, you can look for an Atlanta Super Bowl victory.
