Packers at Falcons (Sunday 3:05pm)
A rematch of the regular season game in Atlanta that the Falcons won 33-32.  The biggest question is on the WR's - Julio Jones for Atlanta and Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams for the Packers. The Falcons say Jones (ankle) should have no limitations while the Packers say Nelson (ribs) and Adams (ankle) could be game-time decisions. QB Aaron Rodgers is playing out his mind the last nine games while QB Matt Ryan leads arguably the NFL's most balanced offense that includes RB's Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Expect a shootout in the final game in the Georgia Dome. 
Winner: Falcons

Steelers at Patriots (Sunday 6:40pm)
It's also a rematch from the regular season although QB Ben Roethlisberger did not play in the Patriots victory.  Stopping RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the key for New England in a game in which the Steelers may need to score 30+ to win.  The question is can the Steelers defense stop QB Tom Brady and crew, who put up 34 points (6 coming on a Dion Lewis kickoff return) in a sub-par performance against Houston in the Divisional Round Playoff win. Can the Steelers turn FG's (6 in win over KC) into TD's?  Can the Patriots hold on to the ball (3 turnovers vs. Houston)?  Winner becomes first NFL team to play in 9 Super Bowls. 
Winner: Patriots
