The Falcons haven’t exactly been the media darlings this season as plenty of experts continue to express their doubts and concerns about the 13-2 team heading into the playoffs.

After Saturday night’s 31-18 win over the Detroit Lions, the Falcons got a little bit of love on NFL Network this morning during “First on the Field.”

Here are a couple of the comments:

“They have passed every single test this year. They have been able to play well and win on the road – something they weren’t very good at last season. They have been able to win convincingly and they are still very good at home. When Matt Ryan is throwing the ball like he did against the Lions, this is a dangerous football team.” - Michael Lombardi on if the Atlanta Falcons are the best team in the NFC

“If Atlanta can improve their run defense – allow around 100 yards a game – they will be New Orleans-bound.” - Sterling Sharpe on the key to the Atlanta Falcons making it to the Super Bowl
