Opening drive touchdowns have become a given in Falcons games.
Atlanta took the opening kickoff in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers and marched 80 yards on 13 plays, culminating in Mohamed Sanu's two-yard touchdown catch on a shovel pass from Matt Ryan.

Ryan had a trio of third-down conversions on the opening drive. The MVP favorite has been an absolute monster in such situations.
