Three of the eight playoff teams participating in the wild-card round have first-year head coaches. The Cardinals face one of them when the Falcons visit University of Phoenix Stadium.

The Falcons have gone young on offense in the starting lineup, but the overall roster remains a work in progress as general manager Thomas Dimitroff and coach Mike Smith establish their program. For a closer look at the Falcons -- and the Cardinals -- download this file featuring roided-out 25-column rosters for each team.

A few notes:

Note to the uninitiated: The term "roided-out" refers to the nature of the rosters we provide here. With 25 columns of information on current and former players, these are like rosters on steroids. The term has nothing to do with real steroids.
