We're less than a week away from the Super Bowl and the home team, the Atlanta Falcons, arrived in Houston Sunday after a packed send-off at Atlantic Station. 

"That was incredible," the Atlanta Falcons said on Twitter. "Thank you Atlanta for the send-off!" 

The Falcons' five bus motorcade traveled through Atlantic Station on the team's way out of town. Thousands of fans lined the streets, holding signs while cheering "rise up."
