I realize you can make stats say whatever you want, but guess I wanted a reason to go with the Seahawks!
So you are looking at 2012 postseason stats and noticed the Falcons aren't in the top 5 in any categories but the teams that played in the wild card round are?

Really?

You're kidding right?

No, in the regular season stats.
Falcons didnt play in the wild card round.
Sorry I didnt make that clear.

You might better have another look.

Atlanta was in the top 5 in a lot of important categories. I don't care they had a 20th ranked yards per game on defense when they were 5th in points allowed. (As an example)

Why is it that the closer it gets to game time the more people will say so & so game will be very close?

I think there will be lots of blow outs this weekend & most of them by the home team. 49ers vs Packers game might be close though.

I have a feeling you might be right, but I'm hoping for interesting games, not blowouts. The one I think could head in that direction is Pats/Texans. Texans just have trouble with high power QBs. Brady isn't going to take his off the gas for this one.

Weather in Denver might prevent that game from being high scoring. Falcons/Seahawks depends on whether the Falcons can match up well with the Seahawks, that one could be tricky.

I'm still thinking the Pack/49ers could be the closest game of the weekend, I don't think the line/spread for betting has changed much, haven't checked lately. I'm ready for some football!

I did have another look Kees, and I saw the same thing.
I realize you can twist stats anyway you want.
I was having a hard time making a decision, so I took a quick glance and used what I saw.
I am not dissing the Falcons and this game could go either way.

An interesting stat I saw was the Seahawks winning streak has come against offensive teams ranked in the bottom 3rd of the league. That's a great way to pad defensive stats don't you think?

The highest profile QB they've faced over the streak was... Sam Bradford?

I would say Matthew Stafford but that was a loss. A one-legged RGIII doesn't count either.

Let's see what kind of a pass rush they can muster without Clemons. They better find one... Otherwise it could be a long day.

Grats to the 49ers. Never any doubt.

You didn't watch the game in the 1st half. GB was leading 14-7 and looking to score again but the punt fumble was a killer.

They were never the same after that...

Was at work and didn't watch it at all.

I just was talking about my pre-playoff prediction of an Atlanta/SF NFC championship. (See the playoff thread)
