1st Round Playoff Opponent Should Be New Orleans

The winner of the Rams-Seahawks game will most likely have to face Drew Brees and the defending Super Bowl champs in the first round.  The only other possible opponent would be the Atlanta Falcons.  For this to happen Atlanta will have to lose at home to the Carolina Panthers.  If Atlanta wins they get a first round bye and home field advantage in the NFC.  Also, for Atlanta to be a wild card team, New Orleans must beat Tampa Bay at home.  Tampa Bay must win to have a shot at the playoffs, so the game won't be so easy, but if New Orleans wins and Atlanta loses then New Orleans is the #1 seed in the NFC.

So unless Jimmy Clausen has a major epiphany between now and Sunday and realizes that it is not the spoon that bends, only himself, Atlanta should crush the Panthers and secure the #1 seed.

In all likelihood, New Orleans will be forced to play the NFC West Champions on the road in what is sure to become an NFL Films Instant Classic.
