The Falcons are seeking a different kind of history.
On paper, Philadelphia may seem like they would have an advantage facing an Atlanta team as the No. 6 seed, but also keep in mind this is a team on a mission looking to redeem themselves after suffering the worst Super Bowl collapse in National Football League history last February when they blew a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots.
The NFL playoffs open Saturday night.
After the 2003 year where a fractured fibula took Vick out for the most of the season and dashed away any chances for the Falcons that year, a new system under Jim Mora took place as well as the drafting of Roddy White, signing of defensive tackle Rod Coleman, and the continuing emergence of LB Keith Brooking and DE Patrick Kerney.
LOS ANGELES - The Atlanta Falcons, the team that always talks about taking things one game at a time, just cleared a major hurdle in their quest for a return trip to the Super Bowl.
The Rams are now led by 31-year-old Sean McVay, who grew up near Atlanta, and a roster of playmakers, including former Georgia Bulldog Todd Gurley. But the question of which team shows up for the playoffs lingers.

Arsenal manager Wenger given touchline ban, fine for referee incident
He'll serve the first of his three match ban on Sunday. I would say that means everyone had given up on him. Wenger now has until 6 p.m. on Tuesday to respond.
North Korea missile crashes into its own cities
The North Korean missile was launched on April 28, last year, from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province. The explosion destroyed some 1,850 buildings; death toll estimates range between 160 and 3,000.
In 2016, the Jeff Fisher-led Los Angeles Rams scored an NFL-low 224 points. Their touchdown percentage of 50 ranks 23rd in the league and is down from 64.6 percent a year ago. If this game wasn't in Southern California, the Rams would definitely have a harder time.
What makes him believe that?
"They're obviously a very good team". In the last game I thought they moved the ball really well. And the Falcons would have had poor field position for nearly the entire game had it not been for those recoveries. But the team was a disgusting 1-for-5 in the red zone.
The Falcons couldn't muster much on offense during the drive but turned the Rams' miscue into three points when Matt Bryant booted a 29-yard field goal. That's great for Bryant.
But the Panthers' success overwhelmingly comes down to their dual-threat quarterback, as we saw in last weekend's three-interception performance against the Falcons.
Unlike these Rams, those 49ers had the same coach, Jack Christiansen, in both seasons. But on Friday, the Falcons announced that despite missing practice on Tuesday and being a limited participant on Wednesday and Thursday, Freeman is available to play and will start on Saturday. Too often this season, they haven't. But they've also had some ugly losses (Buffalo, Miami, New England, Minnesota) and narrow escapes (Chicago, Detroit, New York Jets). The offensive line hasn't been as stout despite another Pro Bowl season from center Alex Mack. Can they flip a switch? "But I do think that we've got a confident group, a mature group for a young football team".
