That’s what a win on Sunday would mean for the Atlanta Falcons. Terance Mathis has been in those cleats before. 

He was a starting wide receiver on the last Atlanta Falcons team that played in the Super Bowl.

After Friday's loud Falcons rally in downtown Atlanta, Mathis talked about what it’s like to prepare for a NFC Championship game.
