Falcons eye first Super Bowl title to crown Ryan's big season (Reuters)

By Larry Fine HOUSTON (Reuters) – The Atlanta Falcons were born the year of the first Super Bowl and 51 years later hope to celebrate their first National Football League title with a victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday. It has been a long journey to the top of the NFL mountain, but the Falcons soared this season on the strength of a high-powered offense led by quarterback Matt Ryan that topped the league in scoring with plenty to spare. Bolstered by a deep receiving corps headed by big, strong and fast Julio Jones and a powerful backfield tandem of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, Ryan steered Atlanta to an average of 33.8 points a game.
