 It won't be as easy as last week as back in Week 7, when these teams met in Pittsburgh, New England faced backup quarterback Landry Jones. Slight edge to New England at home but they will have their hands full slowing down Bell, Brown and Roethlisberger. Still, given the offenses that are playing this week, the Patriots arguably have the easiest draw.
Tier 2
 This unit has been a big reason the Steelers are still around, but primetime in Foxboro? This is a very tough spot for them. We recommend pursuing the Patriots if at all possible this week.
 With just four teams in action this weekend, the Atlanta Falcons defense is worth a look. Last week Atlanta limited the Seattle Seahawks offense to 20 points while racking up three sacks and two interceptions. Granted, the Falcons won't have much luck keeping the red-hot Green Bay Packers offense from lighting up the scoreboard. Aaron Rodgers and company have racked up 38 points and 34 points in two playoff outings, respectively. Turnovers also have been very rare for Green Bay in recent weeks. In the Packers last six games (including two playoff contests), they've thrown just one pick and lost zero fumbles. However, during that stretch, Green Bay has allowed three sacks per contest, which is how the Falcons will rack up a few fantasy points. Atlanta wrapped up the regular season ranked 15th in quarterback takedowns.
Tier 3
 This unit has not done much in the playoffs other than ride along and enjoy the Rodgers show. The Falcons are a high flying offense, not a lot of fantasy production to speak of from these guys this week.
