Giants vs. Falcons GameThread - NFL Wild Card Playoffs

Day two of the 2011 NFL playoffs is about to begin, with the New York Giants hosting the Atlanta Falcons in today's opening game. The winner of the NFC's No. 4 versus No. 5 game will travel to take on the top-seeded Green Bay Packers in next week's divisional round.

On Saturday, the No. 3 seed New Orleans Saints set offensive records in holding off the Detroit Lions, 45-28, to advance to the divisional round. They'll travel out west to take on the San Francisco 49ers for the right to participate in this year's NFC championship game.

On the AFC side of things, the No. 3 seed Houston Texans took care of business in beating the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10 on Saturday, meaning that they'll travel to take on the Baltimore Ravens next weekend. That means that the winner of this afternoon's wild card matchup between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the New England Patriots next weekend.

Discuss today's Giants versus Falcons game right here - and we'll have a fresh thread up for Denver/Pittsburgh later today!
