During a Monday appearance on NFL Network's "NFL AM", Dimitroff discussed what the Falcons need to do in order to achieve postseason success.
"I think there are three salient points," Dimitroff said. "One is we need to protect Matt Ryan, allow Matt to get the ball down the field to our playmakers. Simply stated.
"Two, defensively, we need to play with an element of urgent athleticism and let these football players play ball, fly to the ball. We feel we have the athleticism to do that. And then three, generally speaking, we need to be an organization that consistently is going to finish. Finish plays, finish games and finish the season."
