Divisional Round Open Thread: Falcons vs. Seahawks

Can the death machine Falcons offense overcome toe Legion of Boom?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider fans! The playoffs continue today with two games, the first of which is Seattle at Atlanta in what could be the Falcons' final game at the Georgia Dome before they move to Megatron's Butthole Stadium next door.

MVP candidate Matt Ryan will attempt to solve the problem of the Seattle defense, which despite the loss of All-World safety Earl Thomas hasn't suffered all that much. Seattle will try to run all over the Falcons' average defense and keep pass-rusher extraordinare Vic Beasley out of Russell Wilson's face.

The most interesting matchup will be wide receiver Julio Jones against the secondary for Seattle, cornerback Richard Sherman in particular. Will Jones run wild on in Atlanta or will Sherman march to the sea? The last time Sherman was in Atlanta, it didn't go well for the locals.

Today's game will air on FOX at 1:30 PM Pacific time and can be streamed on the Fox Sports Go app.
