In the 2010 playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons got beat by a dominant offensive team in the Green Bay Packers. In 2011, the Giants defense dominated the Falcons offense. This year the Falcons will not be matched up with a team that is as dominant on one side of the football as the Giants and Packers were in past years.  On Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks weathered an early storm by the Washington Redskins and came from behind to advance in the playoffs. After giving up back-to-back touchdowns on their first two drives, the Seahawks defense clamped down on a gimpy Robert Griffin III and the one dimensional Redskins offense. While the Redskins offense stumbled, the Seahawks were able to put eleven points on the board in the 4th quarter to come up with the victory on the road.  When you look at the Seahawks, there are aspects of their overall game that will give the Falcons problems but they simply aren't the types of monsters that the Giants and Packers have been in years past. The Seahawks are a good overall team that really don't appear to excel in any one particular area. Their defense is clearly their stronger unit but whether they can push the Falcons around like they did the Redskins offense remains to be seen.
