After plenty of excitement during Wild Card Weekend, the Divisional Round of the 2013 NFL Playoffs get under way this weekend and the NFC has two great matchups between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers squaring off on Saturday along with the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
The Packers and 49ers will be squaring off against each other for the second time this season after San Francisco pulled off the big win at Lambeau Field 30-22 during Week 1. Green Bay appears to be a completely different team this time around and are much healthier than they were at the beginning of the season–so expect them to be fully prepared for this matchup.
Plus, the Packers have the experience factor in this one with Aaron Rodgers considering Colin Kaepernick will be making his first career playoff start.
As for the other matchup in the NFC, the Falcons will be looking to pick up their first playoff win during the Matt Ryan and Mike Smith era. Atlanta will be making their fourth playoff appearance over the last five seasons on Saturday, but it certainly won’t be easy to advance to the NFC Championship as Seattle is one of the hottest team in the league’s right now and is coming off a huge road win against the Washington Redskins last weekend.
Russell Wilson has been nothing short of phenomenal as a rookie this season and if he can receive help from Seattle’s steller defense–don’t be surprised if they pull out the road win in the Georgia Dome on Sunday.
