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
