Seahawks vs. Falcons: Prediction, Game Thread

Stephen Brashear

Use this thread to discuss the Seahawks vs. Falcons NFC Divisional Playoff game.

The countdown is on: there's officially less than four hours to go until the New England Patriots kick off against the Houston Texans for the right to host the AFC Championship next Sunday!

Until then, we actually have some more football to watch, as the Seattle Seahawks travel to take on the NFC's #1 seed, the Atlanta Falcons.

As Patriots fans, I think most of us can agree that we'd like to see Matt Ryan, a Boston College product, and the Falcons move on. They've had a rough postseason stretch, and they certainly deserve a win. It's fair to say that they've been underrated despite a gaudy 13-3 regular season record.

On the flip side, it's also fair to say that a strong regular season record means nothing at this point, and just because a team deserves a win, doesn't mean they'll get one. Seattle is the hotter team right now, and I really believe that the postseason has become a big mental hurdle for this Falcons team. I'll be pulling for Atlanta, but I'm predicting the Seahawks. Greg's Prediction: Seahawks 24 Falcons 17
