NFL Playoffs Predictions: Giants Have The Quarterback Advantage

The New York Giants are favored to beat the Atlanta Falcons in their NFC Wild Card home game on Sunday afternoon and to do it they'll need a good game from Eli Manning. Our Giants blog, Big Blue View, says Eli Manning is the superior quarterback so the Giants have a major advantage in this game.

Here's Big Blue View on why the Giants will win this game and they they'll lose:

Why the Giants will win: The Giants will win because they have the advantage at quarterback. Eli Manning is better than Matt Ryan. Also, the Giants' defensive line is healthier than at any time this season and that is a game-changer.

Why the Giants will lose: The Giants will lose because they won't be able to slow the Atlanta running game, which means they won't fully be able to unleash the pass rush. Plus, Victor Cruz' magical run has to end some time.

SB Nation's NFL bloggers made predictions for Wild Card weekend and here's a look at the updated NFL playoffs schedule for Sunday. Check out Big Blue View for the latest on the Giants and The Falcoholic for the latest on the Falcons.
