They were both division champions last season, playoff teams that figured bigger things were in store for 2013. Instead, when the Redskins and the Atlanta Falcons meet on Sunday afternoon at the Georgia Dome, the wreckage of a lost season will haunt them both.
The Atlanta Falcons raced to a 17-0 lead and the defense made it stand up, picking off five of Drew Brees' passes and ending his NFL-record touchdown streak at 54 games with a 23-13 victory Thursday night.
Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons can forget about any style points.
Almost to a man, the Atlanta Falcons insist they don't care who they play in the next round of the playoffs.
The NFL suspended Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux for one game Tuesday after his arrest last year on marijuana charges.
"Media always put out what they want to put out," Atlanta defensive end Jonathan Babineaux said. "Everything could be different on the inside than what's happening from the outside. So we don't know exactly what's going on in their locker room. But it's none of our concern. We have our own issues here and the things that's going on with our organization here."
"We're always taught to finish play," Babineaux said. "I looked at the ref. I saw him running, so I figured the play was still going."
