    FOX SPORTS - FALCONS-GIANTS MATCHUP; TEAMS STRONG UP FRONT

    FALCONS-GIANTS MATCHUP; TEAMS STRONG UP FRONT

    "With a chance to advance to the NFC divisional round of the playoffs, the Falcons[/i] (10-6) face
    the Giants (9-7) in the wild-card
    round at 1 p.m. Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.



    Here is a look at how the Falcons'[/i] offensive line matches up
    against the Giants' defensive line:




    Falcons'[/i] starters: Left tackle Will Svitek, left guard Justin Blalock, center Todd McClure, right guard Joe Hawley and right tackle Tyson Clabo.




    Falcons'[/i] key reserves: Tackles Sam Baker and Kirk Chambers, guard Garrett Reynolds and center Brett
    Romberg.




    Giants' starters: Left end Justin
    Tuck
    , defensive tackles Linval Joseph and Chris Canty, and right end Jason Pierre-Paul.




    Giants' key reserves: Ends Osi
    Umenyiora
    , Justin Trattou
    and Dave Tollefson, and tackles
    Rocky Bernard and Jimmy Kennedy.




    Matchups to watch: Svitek vs. Pierre-Paul




    The Falcons[/i] will face one of the best young pass rushers in
    the league in Pierre-Paul, a second-year defensive end who had a breakthrough
    season with 16.5 sacks.




    Pierre-Paul leads a unit that registered 48 sacks, which was tied for third
    in the league. Umenyiora had nine sacks, Tuck five, Tollefson five and Canty
    four.




    Pierre-Paul's emergence has been important because Tuck, a two-time Pro
    Bowler, has been slowed this season by neck and groin injuries, and Umenyiora
    has missed seven games because of knee and ankle injuries.




    The unit had six sacks and forced a fumble in its 31-14 victory over Dallas
    to clinch the NFC East title Sunday. It had five sacks in the previous week's
    game against the Jets.




    The Giants received a boost by the return of Umenyiora against the Cowboys; he'd missed the previous four
    games with an ankle injury.




    The Giants sacked Dallas quarterback Tony Romo with a four-man rush and
    didn't have to manufacture pressure with their blitz packages.




    In passing situations, Tuck will play some tackle in order to get three
    defensive ends rushing. Also, the versatile Pierre-Paul played some linebacker
    against Dallas.




    The Falcons[/i] had trouble early in the season with athletic
    pass rushers before they settled on a unit.




    The Falcons[/i] allowed 26 sacks during the regular season,
    which was the sixth lowest in the league. Cincinnati (25), Oakland (25), New
    Orleans (24), Tennessee (24) and Buffalo (23) allowed fewer.




    Matchup advantage: Giants."

    Get a lead early, make them throw, and let the dogs loose.

    Should be the motto for every game. We have the d-line to ravage anyone, except for New Orleans, honestly.

    We've been pretty successful in run defense no? We will get to Ryan I think.
