Falcons aim to repeat late rush, but it feels different

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Falcons are accustomed to making a late-season run to the playoffs.

But as the Falcons chase a playoff spot, they're not looking at Monday night's game at Tampa Bay or any part of their closing stretch as anything like last season.

Nevermind that they were 7-5 last season before rolling to four straight regular-season victories and playoff wins over Seattle and Green Bay to reach the Super Bowl.
