The Atlanta Falcons are a team of destiny. All the pieces are falling into place. The team is hungry. The team is confident. Most importantly, the team is ready. The city of Atlanta is ready.
Atlanta and the Falcons have waited 51 years for this moment. The Falcons came close once before. It's wasn't their time. Destiny was on the side of John Elway and the Broncos. Today, destiny is with the Falcons.
The national focus is leaning Patriots. A glamorous team with multiple Super Bowl appearances. Marquee players in a big market. Ok, I get it. Keep underestimating the Falcons. They've flown under the radar, out of the national spotlight for most of the season. Really, for most of their existence. Tonight, all of that will change.
Matt Ryan. MVP and Offensive Player of the Year. He's a smart, smart guy who's a student of the game. He keeps his head down and plays hard. He sets the example. No flashiness. Just hard work. Hard work that has paid off ten fold this season. No one in Atlanta is surprised.
Matt Ryan and Julio Jones may be the most well-know names on the team. All that will change tonight. Just wait.
This is the year of the underdog. Think about it. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. The Clemson Tigers beat the almighty Bama. And Donald Trump won the White House.
Get ready America. It's time for the rest of y'all to Rise Up!
