Packers-Falcons NFC matchup expected to produce big offense

CHARLES ODUM, AP Sports Writer br /> FLOWERY BRANCH, Georgia (AP) — The high-scoring offenses of the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers appear poised to provide a memorable send-off for the Georgia Dome in Sunday's NFC championship game. The Falcons led the NFL in scoring. Even so, they know it won't be easy to keep up with the scoring pace set by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. 'It's obvious they've got a stud at quarterback,' Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews said Tuesday. 'We've played a lot of great teams with great players at quarterback... Whatever it takes, we just have to put up as many points as we need to.' Matthews said the weekly message from offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is 'I don't know if we're going to have to win 6-3 or 40-37.' Of those alternatives, 40-37 appears to be the more likely target, in part because the Atlanta and Green Bay defenses don't dominate the statistics like their offensive counterparts. The game will be the Falcons' farewell to the Georgia Dome, which will be demolished in the offseason. The Falcons will move into the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium next season. The Falcons and Packers finished the regular season ranked 28th and 31st, respectively, in pass defense. The Falcons allowed 25.4 points per game to rank 27th, only a few spots below the Packers (24.2) at 21st. Atlanta led the NFL with 33.8 points per game. Green Bay linebacker Nick Perry said the goal will be to prevent big plays. 'They are very explosive,' Perry said. 'When we look at the film, we have to make sure we don't give up those explosive plays. Everything lives off that. They are good at what they do. We are going to look at the film and go over it and make sure we prevent as much as we can of those guys giving up explosive plays.' The Falcons advanced with a 36-20 divisional playoff win over Seattle last week. Green Bay's offense also rolled in a 34-31 win over Dallas. Despite the unimpressive season totals, Atlanta allowed fewer than 20 points in four of its last six regular-season games. But none of those games were against Rodgers. The Falcons have faced Russell Wilson, Cam Newton and Drew Brees in their past three games. Asked who compares with Rodgers, Falcons linebacker De'Vondre Campbell had a quick answer. 'Nobody. It's just that simple,' Campbell said. 'The things that he can do, it's just amazing to see. There's no one I can compare him to.' The Falcons are led by MVP candidate Matt Ryan, the All-Pro who ranked second in the NFL in yards passing and TD passes. Atlanta's offense featured depth, as Ryan threw scoring passes to a record 13 players during the season, and balance with running back Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Atlanta's offense provides nice support for its defense, but cornerback Jalen Collins insisted Tuesday he doesn't want to have to rely on that strength. 'You don't go in the game thinking you're going to give up hundreds of yards and a bunch of points,' Collins said. 'We're looking forward to trying to limit the points as best we can and give our offense an opportunity to put points on the board.' Falcons cornerback Robert Alford said expectations for a high-scoring game gives the defense reason 'to have a chip on our shoulders.' Added Alford: 'We're all going to have something to prove. I love it.' .....»»

'Samahang walang katulad' behind SMB's continued success

Look up the word versatile in the basketball dictionary and you'll probabyly find a photo of Arwind Santos in the Philippine version of the book. While his scoring outburts come few and far between at this stage of his PBA career, the man they call Spider-Man is still a terror on defense. His ability to dominate on the non-fancy side of the floor was once again showcased against Ginebra as the former no. 2 overall pick from Far Eastern University came away with a pair of crucial offensive rebounds in the last 30 seconds and provided the challenge on LA Tenorio's floater that would've sent the game to overtime. In the end, Santos finished with a mere 10 points but added 12 rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in another all-around effort. 'Sabi ko nga, bakit ko pa papahirapan ang basketball?' Santos said after the Beermen picked up their sixth straight victory. 'Ang basketball maraming sangkap eh, maraming masarap na sangkap. Andyan ang rebound, puntos, depensa, agaw, blocks. Anytime na hindi pumapasok ‘yung tira ko sa labas, sa three point, kaya ayun, nagbawi ako sa depensa at saka sa rebound. Mabuti nalang naging maganda ang resulta. In the end, panalo,' he added. With the champs sitting pretty at number one after also being the first to punch a its playoff ticket in the Philippine Cup, Santos also takes a whole different role off the court as he tries to keep his star teammates motivated. After all, the Beermen are chasing history as they hope to become only the second team in history to win three straight All-Filipino crowns. 'Thankful kami number one kami. Pero ano eh, nakakatakot din,' Arwind admits. 'Siguro yung part ko na i-remind yung bawat isa, kasi minsan nagiging kuntento. Pumapasok yung pagiging relaxed, sana di namin madala yun. Kasi pag kayo ang number one, kailangan mas lalo pa naming dagdagan yung effort namin. Wag kaming magsasawang manalo,' the 2013 PBA MVP added. With the San Miguel machine performing a peak condition though, it doesn't look like Arwind the team captain will have a hard time keeping his squad in check. 'Walang malaki ang ulo rito. Kumbaga, yun ang pinaka breand and butter namin. Kaya kami nasa number one ngayon, yun ang ganda ng samahan,' he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
