VIDEO: Hakeem Nicks Holds On In Traffic For A Touchdown

The New York Giants picked up the first touchdown in Sunday's NFC Wild Card game and lead the Atlanta Falcons, 7-2. The Giants bullied the Falcons down the field, rushing for 69 yards on one drive and ended with a four-yard Eli Manning touchdown pass to Hakeem Nicks.

Late in the second quarter, Manning has completed 9-of-11 passes for 51 yards. He's spreading things out as six receivers have caught at least one ball. The offensive star of the game so far is Giants running back Brandon Jacobs who has 48 yards on seven carries including a 34-yard run on the scoring drive.

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.
