ATLANTA -

The women closest to the Falcons say the team knows just how much Atlanta is anticipating Sunday's game. The wives and girlfriends of some Falcons players stopped by the FOX 5 Tailgate Party and gave some insight into what's on their husbands' minds as the big game approaches.

Long snapper Josh Harris' fiance, Kameron McDaniel, said the team is keeping its priorities in order amid the hype.

"They know the hype is there, but they're focused. He goes to work in the morning, it's his job and they work really hard," Kameron said.

Despite their success, the team isn't celebrating  yet.

Kicker Matt Bryant won last week's playoff game with a dramatic last minute field goal. So what did he and his wife Melissa do for dinner that night -- steak? Lobster? Champagne? No, they ate fresh.

"We stopped at Subway and got a sandwich. And I had a guy ask me, 'did you just see the game,' we were like, 'yeah, we sure did,'" said Melissa Bryant.

Once at home, the couple kept the festivities to a minimum.

"Well, our neighbors put balloons on our mailbox, that was about it. Lots of phone calls and emails but no real celebrating, because,  like I said, we got the win, that's great we're moving on. But these guys want to go to the Super Bowl. We want to win it all, so that was just one small step in many," said Melissa Bryant.

And what if the next step, comes down again to Matt's right foot?

"Don't say that. My heart can't take anymore last-minute field goals," Melissa said.

Whatever it comes down to Sunday, punter Matt Bosh's fiancé, Brittany Boyer, says the Falcons are ready.

"I think on the inside they're pumped and they've earned this. They've worked all season," said Boyer.

The Falcons take on the San Francisco Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Georgia Dome. If you can't be there in person, you can watch it on FOX 5.
