Matt Ryan and the Falcons' passing offense had a great Sunday against the 49ers, but when Atlanta needed 4 yards, San Francisco didn't let receiver Roddy White have an inch of open space. The moment of truth in the NFC championship game came with 1:13 left. The Falcons trailed 28-24, and had fourth-and-4 at San Francisco's 10. White lined up tight to the line and tried to run a slant, where he was met by linebacker NaVorro Bowman. Bowman didn't let him loose.
