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 — how do you see its chances?

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, they lost to 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?

Falcons vs. Patriots in the Super Bowl. Pats take home the Lombardi Trophy.

If the Falcons can win next Sunday....I see them going to New Orleans and coming back with the Lombardi Trophy....a fitting end to a good season.

If they play like the played in the 2nd half of the Seattle game, they will be watching the Superbowl onTV. The have what it takes, it just depends which Atlanta Falcons team shows up. I'd like to see Tony Gonzales go out with a Superbown win!

They would be the most blah Super Bowl champ since 2003 Bucaneers.
