DETROIT (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have earned home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
The Falcons (13-2) pulled away with Ryan’s fourth TD pass to wide-open tight end Michael Palmer in the fourth quarter and Matt Bryant’s 20-yard field goal with 3:05 left that gave them a 15-point lead.
Detroit (4-11) dropped its seventh straight game.
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s NFL single-season yards receiving mark of 1,848. He also became the first player with 100 yards receiving in eight straight games and the first with 10 receptions in four games in a row.
