Lions-Saints Playoff Open Thread

This is the game that probably matters to you guys this Saturday.

If the Lions upset the Saints, it shakes up the NFC playoffs the rest of the way. If they're going to pull off an upset that would delight Falcons fans everywhere, they'll have to get by arguably the hottest team in the NFL in the second year of the year. It won't be easy, and the Lions already dropped one game to the Saints in 2011.

If the Saints do win, they've got a good shot to advance to the NFC Championship Game. Those interested in revenge on the grandest scale possible should root for this, though I should note that the Falcons have to win two games before that can happen.

Enough blathering. It's football time.
