Giants are a much more dangerous football team in January then they are in October. They're just built for the playoffs with that front 4 and with Eli's clutch play.
With Atlanta it's really where you play them at. If they get home field advantage they're going to be a tough out but I can easily see them get knocked out early otherwise.
OK thats reasonable, but would you not say we have a defense built for killing clutch play? Lions had there chance in the last season were one of the best teams at coming back in the fourth quarter (the other being the Giants). Atlanta I agree there, but once again it comes down to stopping the clutch plays, and what better way then to keep there defense on the field as long as possible giving them very little opprotunity for a clutch play in the first place?
