After the bye the Falcons will play their first playoff game, at home, against the seed number 3 Seattle.
Atlanta was one of the biggest surprise this year and they played really an amazing football in offense with a great year of Matt Ryan (probably the future MVP of the regular season) and with so many strong weapons like Julio Jones, Freeman or Sanu.
Their offense was the best in the NFL but the defense not played so well especially in the first part of season but in the second one they step up and played way better. Of course they haven’t a strong defense but the offense was capable to win the games.
For today they will not have injuries and this is another key factor for every team in this period.
Seattle, instead, won the Wild Card game of last week, at home, against the Lions.
Their defense make a great job but honestly there was also 2-3 missed calls by the refs who changed a little bit the flow.
Wilson is in better shape but Seattle is still without Lockett and a big absence like Earl Thomas, out for season.
For tonight they have only one player in doubt, the running back Prosise who is still questionable.
They played at home against the Falcons in the regular season and won a tough and close game but also in that game they was helped by the refs with a huge PI not called on Julio Jones on the decisive drive.
For me Atlanta is the favourite here and can have the chance to win the battle and pass the turn.
Atlanta ML @1,50
