Open Thread: Sunday Divisional Games

Day two of the divisional weekend. Leave your thoughts about the games in the comments!

Seahawks at Falcons — We all know about Matt Ryan and the impressive record that the Falcons put together this season, but I look at the Seahawks and think they have had a tougher season and have won in a more impressive manner. The Falcons played the sleepy NFC South, while the Seahawks were duking it out in the NFC West and have already taken some powerhouses to task like that last minute win over the Patriots. We know what Beast Mode can do and he might be more terrifying on the fast track. If Russell Wilson can keep any mistakes to a minimum against the Falcons, I think they win.

Texans at Patriots — Does it come down to the quarterbacks? It might, but while the Texans were dominant in the earlier part of the season, they’ve not been as unstoppable as they were early on. Playing in New England for a cold early evening game might be a decided advantage for the Patriots.
