NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Atlanta. According to latest NFL trends, the favorite is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams, while the Cardinals are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games versus the Falcons. While Arizona’s defense is better than what people perceive, Atlanta simply has too many offensive weapons for the Cardinals to contain. Plus, Arizona doesn’t have the offensive firepower to go toe-to-toe with Atlanta, so look for a focused Falcons club to get back on track this Sunday at the Georgia Dome. While the game may be close early on, Matt Ryan and Co. will eventually get rolling and pull away in the second half.
