Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White has gotten over his initial disappointment of missing out on the Pro Bowl for the first time in five years.

White is focused on winning a playoff game.

Under fifth-year coach Mike Smith, the Falcons have gone 0-3 in the postseason, but White says "it's going to be a lot different outcome" this time because the team is more mature and experienced.

Atlanta is 13-3 and has the NFC's No. 1 seed for the second time in three years.

White, now in his eighth season with Atlanta, says he's pleased that receiver Julio Jones was named to the Pro Bowl in just his second year.

White has more catches and yards receiving, but Jones caught 10 touchdown passes to White's seven.
