NFL Playoff: Seahawks vs. Falcons Game Thread

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

It's the battle of the big birds! Seattle may be the hottest team in the NFL right now. They face a post season hexed Atlanta Falcons team that's had a week off to re-group from a late season slide. Matt Ryan will face a tough defense, featuring a great, physical secondary.

The Seahawks came out of a marginal effort against Washington last week for a road win. They've had a tough time with away games this season. Their road to the Super Bowl will be a tough one. A win in Atlanta could set up a third contest with the 49ers - IN San Francisco.

The Falcons have a monkey hanging on their back, in the form of a playoff win drought that's seen them exit the post season early in their last few chances. With arguably the best wide receiving duo in the NFL, it will be interesting to see if they can break out to an early lead. Seattle's Marshawn Lynch is struggling with a foot injury, but I'd look for the Skittles-powered running back to be in full "Beast Mode" as his upstart team makes its playoff run. So sit back, and get ready for what I think will be a great game!
