Joe D'Amico's NFL NFC Divisional Playoff Game of the Year
Seattle vs. Atlanta,
01/13/2013 13:00 EDT,
Score: 28 - 30
Point Spread: +3/-120 Seattle
Sunday's winner is Seattle over Atlanta. This is my NFC Divisional Playoff Game of the Year.
Seattle is red-hot, riding a 6 game win streak while yielding a mere 12.3 PPG during that span. They are converting on 3rd downs and behind Marshawn Lynch (1590 YR and 11 TDs) they are controlling the clock and the tempo of the game. This allows QB, Russell Wilson to work his magic. The play-caller has 3118 YP and 26 TDs in the air with another 489 rushing yards and 4 scores on the ground. His style of play, is like kryptonite to the Atlanta defense. They have problems facing quick, elusive backs. The Seahawks "D" is solid against both the run and the pass. Their speed will contain Matt Ryan and his receiving corps. Remember, Ryan has tossed 14 INTs on the season. On the ground, the Falcons rank 29th in the League (3.7 ypc) and that will be fatal here. The Seahawks are 7-0 ATS their L7 games played vs. teams with a winning record while the Falcons are 0-4 ATS their L4 Playoff Games. Take Seattle. Thank you.
