Falcons lost to 49ers

Hosting their first ever conference championship game in the Georgia Dome, the Atlanta Falcons fell just short of attending the Super Bowl - losing to the San Francisco 49ers 28-24. The Falcons started off well, building a 17-0 lead, and leading 24-14 at halftime. But San Francisco rallied in the second half, and the Falcons final attempt to win the game ended on the 49ers ten yard line. This was the Falcons third appearance in the NFC championship game - other appearances were in Philadelphia (where they lost) and in Minnesota (where they won in 1998 for their only Super Bowl appearance).
