The Atlanta Falcons are celebrating!
The Falcons beat the Green Bay Packers 44-21 on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl in Houston on Feb. 5, and they didn't even wait until the clock had gotten inside the final minute before dousing coach Dan Quinn in celebration.

This will be only the second Super Bowl berth for Atlanta and first in 18 years. Atlanta has never won the NFL title.
Jamal Anderson played with those Falcons who went to the 1999 Super Bowl, a group that embraced the "Dirty Birds'' nickname. He quickly offered his congratulations once the latest "Dirty Birds" earned their spot.
