Perhaps, no game has greater implications for the Falcons than this one.
Playoff seedings up for grabs? Check.
A chance to beat a true "elite" team, as all the pundits have said the Falcons have yet to prove they can do? Check.
The opportunity to get revenge on last January's embarrassing playoff loss? Check.
Every Falcon has this game circled on his calendar, and it should, no doubt, make for their toughest battle of the season.
Atlanta has the advantage of playing this one at home in the Georgia Dome as opposed to on the road in cold, but that won't stop the Giants' pass rush from being as relentless as it has been all season.

Prediction: Falcons 23, Giants 21
