Early Playoff Predictions Show The Atlanta Falcons Some Love

Atlanta edges Washington for the final spot. You look at the Falcons' two-week résumé, and they've got a blowout win and a narrow loss to a good team. I'll take that over Washington's flukey win over the Cowboys and their narrow loss the Texans, who might be good, but who might also have just a shockingly bad defense.

Darnell has the Falcons as a Wild Card team hosting a home playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. I think we know how that would turn out.
