We’re on to the second day of the WIld Card round, and chances are that we’ll be in for some better games. Thankfully.
As you know, the Falcons are going to be facing the Seattle Seahawks next Saturday, so that bit of intrigue is gone. As expected, the Lions were more or less dominated by Seattle, but we also saw a Seahawks team that didn’t look as sharp as it has in years past. Atlanta will hopefully be able to take advantage.
Today’s NFC game is noteworthy because it gives us a glimpse of a potential opponent down the line. If Atlanta can advance and one of these two teams can get by Dallas, they could meet in the conference championship, so it’ll be worth monitoring the game and especially who wins that game. The AFC matchup is interesting chiefly if you like offense, and hey, who doesn’t?
