    ATLANTA - Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman thinks his team has what it takes to play in Super Bowl LIII.

    In a post on Twitter Tuesday, Freeman wrote, “Super Bowl 53 we coming for that.”

    Other NFL players like Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston and Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey responded to Freeman.

    The three NFL stars are also former teammates who played together at Florida State in 2013.

    The Falcons, who played in Super Bowl LI, fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Divisional Playoffs in January.

    The Eagles went onto win Super Bowl LII.


    If the Falcons make an appearance in Super Bowl LIII, they would be the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium.

    Super Bowl LIII is scheduled for Feb. 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
