The Giants are small favorites over the Falcons, likely due to the fact that they're at home. New York is here because they were able to beat the Dallas Cowboys in a win-and-you're-in game in Week 17, which gave them the NFC East crown.
The Falcons are coming in as a Wild Card team after finishing second in the NFC South behind the New Orleans Saints. They're one of the more balances teams in the playoffs -- they don't do a ton of things exceptionally but they don't really do anything terrible.
This should be a close game as the expert picks have shown us.
