NFL Playoffs: Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons, Divisional Round (Open Thread)

After a relatively dull Wildcard Weekend, the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs got off to a bang on Saturday, didn't it? I'm stunned that the Ravens were able to move on, and while I picked the 49ers to win, I didn't expect their offense to execute as well as they did.

Today, the playoffs continue with the Seattle Seahawks taking on the NFC's top seed in the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta hasn't gotten a lot of national respect this season, and their poor playoff performance a year ago still lingers in everyone's minds. They are facing one of the hottest teams in football in the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle thrives in running the ball, and the Falcons' defense is vulnerable against the run. The Seahawks' cornerbacks are top-notch, but the Falcons' aerial attack is one of the best in the league. This should be another tough game, but I'm going with the Seahawks to pull off the upset. Seahawks 23, Falcons 21
