FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons are headed out to the West Coast for their first-round playoff matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
The two teams met last season in LA, a decisive 42-14 victory for the Falcons, but the Rams are much improved in 2017 and boast the league's top scoring offense, led by running back Todd Gurley. Atlanta is the only returning playoff team in the NFC field, but the Falcons will have their hands full on Wild Card Weekend.
