Big Playoff Weekend for Atlanta

The Atlanta Falcons football team matched up this weekend at home against The Seattle Seahawks. The Falcons had predictions going their way even if nothing is certain until the final whistle is blown. The game was a real nail-biter but the Falcons squeaked by with a certain victory.

No team this season -- literally, not a single team -- will face as much pressure and scrutiny over one performance as the Falcons will endure Sunday. Few teams have ever put together a 13-win season -- tied for the best record in the NFL -- while impressing so few people. Why, you ask? Because none of it matters unless the Falcons can also win in the playoffs, something they've failed to do in each of their three postseason forays under coach Mike Smith and quarterback Matt Ryan. This time, in order to remove the proverbial monkey from their backs, they'll have to defeat the Seahawks, a youthful team that's seemingly playing as loose and free-spirited as any still competing.
