The Atlanta Falcons face the New York Giants on Sunday in their first regular season match since 2009. It will be their 21st meeting of the series. The series record is split with both teams having won ten games and New York winning the last three. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has an all time record of 6-1  versus the Falcons. Atlanta's Mike Smith will be looking for his first win against the Giants.

In 2009 the Giants won an overtime thriller 34-31 at Giants Stadium. This time they'll play in the climate controlled environment of the Georgia Dome. A place where Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has led them to 32 wins in his last 36 starts.

Atlanta enters with an overall record of 11-2, having already secured the NFC South Title. They lost their last outing 30-20 to Carolina.

New York enters with an overall record of 8-5. They hold a one game lead over Washington and Dallas in the NFC East.

The Falcons will be looking to avenge a 24-2 to the Giants in last year's NFC Wild Card.

Here's ten keys for an Atlanta win.
