A great scenario would be that Atlanta would go to GreenBay and play on a very sloppy field in bad weather and beat the Packers and we get The Saints and beat them and get the NFC title game at home. I think we can beat the Saints and I believe a sloppy wet field is bad news for the Packers against a running team that plays good defense IE the Falcons.
slightly more plausible scenarios:
1) det softens up NO for us (Suh & Co. do their thuggish ways with Brees and that O) --> NO limps into the 'Stick --> meanwhile GB has to play either a ATL team wanting revenge for last yr's playoffs / NYG team that can score with them and also wants revenge for a close loss this year
2) det upsets NO --> then softens up GB for us --> we face bruised pack after taking care of atl / nyg
