Use this post as the official game thread for the second NFC wild card match-up, scheduled to kick off at 1:00 PM ET this afternoon. The game features the visiting Atlanta Falcons, who finished the regular season 10-6 and earned the 5th seed in the wildcard and the 4th seed New York Giants, who won the NFC East division at 9-7.

While most prognosticators are predicting the Giants to win this one, I'm going to go with the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are 0-2 in the playoffs in the Mike Smith / Matt Ryan era, and I think they will come out today with a sense of desperation. They have really been on a roll lately, and I think the Giants have just been too inconsistent this year to know what to expect. This is the same Giants team, that with a chance to take a dominating lead in the division, were killed by the 5-11 Redskins just a couple of weeks ago. Greg's Prediction: Falcons 24 Giants 20
