SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW

Falcons: The Falcons established a first in starting four rookies on defense in the NFC Championship Game with Jones, Neal, linebacker De'Vondre Campbelland nickelback Brian Poole. If the lineup remains the same Feb. 5, it will mark the first time that has occurred in a Super Bowl. All four have been key to the team's resurgence, with Neal (first round), Jones (second) and Campbell (fourth) being draft picks and Poole an undrafted player. The Falcons also start three second-year players on defense in Beasley, Collins and nose tackle Grady Jarrett.
