Atlanta Falcons Vs. New York Giants: TV Schedule, Odds And More

The Atlanta Falcons are looking for their first playoff victory since 2004, taking on the New York Giants. The Giants made it to the playoffs by defeating the Dallas Cowboys last week to win the NFC East, which earned them the right to host this Wild Card game. The Falcons finished the season at 10-6 and finished second to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South.

The Falcons come into this game healthy with only one defender, Stephen Nicholas, at serious risk of sitting out. Multiple Falcon players were limited in practice this week in Julio Jones, Michael Turner, Tony Gonzalez, John Abraham and Roddy White. However, all are expected to play their normal roles on Sunday.

The Giants are healthy as well, and the only player at this time listed out is linebacker Mark Herzlich.

The outcome of this game is hotly contested with no clear consensus from the national media on who will win.
