NFL Divisional Weekend Picks: SEA @ ATL, HOU @ NE
Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons, 1pm ET, FOX
Many don't trust the Falcons and they seem to be the least intimidating No. 1 seed in the past few seasons. Offensively, they have so many weapons that it may be a challenge for the Seahawks to shut them all down. But Seattle has offensive weapons of their own and things - from as early as the "Fail Mary" game to their late season surge - seem to be going their way.
Pick: Seahawks take down the Falcons, 24-17
Houston Texans @ New England Patriots, 4:30pm ET, CBS
The Patriots dominated the Texans in their regular season matchup and, while the Texans have had plenty of time to adjust, it may not mean much. They barely got past the Bengals last week in a purely ugly game of football and playing that way against the Patriots won't get you very far.
Pick: Patriots over Texans, 35-24
