Detroit vs New Orleans Winner: Saints
When these two teams met on December 4, The Saints pummeled the Lions. 31-17. While this is Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson's first time in the playoffs, they are faced with the task out outscoring MVP candidate Drew Brees. A year ago Brees and the Saints were victims to an upset by the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks. However, this time they are home and the fans of New Orleans will be excited as this is their first playoff game home since the year they won the Super Bowl. The Saints will make very short work of the Lions.
Atlanta vs New York Giants winner: Falcons
The Steelers are not suffering from the Super Bowl hangover as everyone thought they would after their week one collapse to their rival, the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos led by quarterback Tim Tebow make their return to the playoffs after edging out the rest of the division where no team succeeded in having a winning record. The Steelers rank 8th in rushing defense while the Broncos rank 1st in rushing. But pass defense is where the Broncos will struggle, as the Steelers are ranked 1st. Even though Steelers starting running back Rashard Mendenhall is out for the playoffs, the wild card game will not be hard for them, as they will easily roll of the Broncos.
