Why this game is intriguing: Doesn't it feel like the Falcons are the underdogs? That we take their win total for granted and offer little credit for the results they've compiled while knocking off one opponent after another. It does to me. But ask the players and get the answer: The only true barometer will be in the playoffs. That's part of the vibe inside the locker room. The goal, instead of merely piling up wins, is to build toward the postseason. And stopping a physical, balanced offense like the Giants' unit would make the case that they are. And hitting the G-Men with a rejuvenated run game starring Jacquizz Rodgers (finally) would, too. As for the Giants, their record isn't nearly as good, but they already seem playoff-ready. Drumming the Saints jumped Eli Manning out of his alleged funk. Taking down the Falcons in their house would take that further.
