The Atlanta Falcons and their fans call it "Rise Up,'' and their supporters Sunday at the NFC championship game include some very high-profile names. 

Actor Samuel L. Jackson, singer Usher and NBA Atlanta Hawks star Dwight Howard not only are at the Georgia Dome but decked out in Falcons' gear. Of course, Jackson has been doing "Rise Up" spots for Falcons for a few years, which are always played before home games. 

 

 

The Packers sent out a pregame call to find out where fans were watching, and Green Bay heard back from people not just in Wisconsin but as far away as Europe and Mexico.
