2013 NFL Playoffs picks: Seahawks vs. Falcons

USA TODAY Sports

Despite being an underdog this weekend, the Seattle Seahawks are a popular pick, as they take on the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL's Divisional round.

Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons enter Sunday's Divisional round contest as three-point favorites over the Seattle Seahawks -- but that hasn't stopped NFL analysts from picking an upset.

The majority of ESPN's analysts picked the Falcons to advance to the NFC title game, but Mark Schlereth, Tom Jackson, Mike Ditka and Cris Carter all expect the Seahawks to pull off the upset, and play for a trip to Super Bowl XLVII.

Over at CBS Sports, the majority of analysts picked the upset. Clark Judge, Jason La Canfora, Dave Richard, Josh Katzowitz and Ryan Wilson all believe the Seahawks will advance to the NFC title game. Pete Prisco and Will Brinson provide dissenting opinions, and believe Matt Ryan will notch his first-ever playoff victory this weekend.

Here at SB Nation, Joel Thorman believes Seattle's magical run continues, with a 24-20 win over the top-seeded Falcons. Thorman also predicts the Packers will upset the 49ers, setting up a Seattle-Green Bay NFC title game.

Kickoff between the Seahawks and Falcons is set for 10 a.m. PT on Sunday.
