The Atlanta Falcons needed every last second of the game to defeat the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

Atlanta did a good job of slowing down Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, but that left tight end Zach Miller open over the middle of the field on multiple occasions. When the Falcons head to San Francisco to take on the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, they can't make that same mistake.

Howie Long sits down with Behind the Mic on Bleacher Report to discuss what it will take to make sure Vernon Davis doesn't have the same success that Zach Miller did last week.

The 49ers have weapons all over the field. Stopping Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore will be key, but that could leave Vernon Davis open to do some serious damage.

Check out the video to hear what Howie has to say, and don't forget to tell us what you think in the comments section below.
