Falcons Vs. Giants, NFL Playoffs 2012: Picks Divided Evenly Among Experts

The New York Giants finished the season 9-7 and required multiple last-second Dallas Cowboys losses to get into the playoffs, while the Atlanta Falcons looked like a strong playoff team for the majority of the season. Still, the Giants won their division, while the Falcons were never in the New Orleans Saints' category. Both teams finished their regular seasons on a high note. Unsurprisingly, their NFC Wild Card game is dividing opinion.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King thinks that the Giants win, but is picking them to do so by less than a touchdown. He cites the Giants' pass rush as the primary reason for his pick. Two out of three Yahoo! experts picked the Falcons, while three out of five CBS experts are going with the Giants.

Check out Big Blue View for the latest on the Giants and The Falcoholic for the latest on the Falcons, and head on over to the SBNation NFL news hub for everything you need to know about the 2012 playoffs.
