NEW YORK GIANTS (Waka Flocka Flame) vs. ATLANTA FALCONS (Roscoe Dash)
The Giants sealed their playoff spot on the final week of the season, while the Falcons have had another strong year after finishing with the top record in the NFC last season. Brick Squad rapper Waka Flocka Flame doesn't think Matt Ryan and the Falcons have a chance against his Giants, but his "No Hands" collaborator, upstart Atlanta MC Roscoe Dash, believes that ATL could get it done.

Billboard: The Giants sort of snuck into the playoffs and have a tough matchup against the Falcons. What do you see happening on Sunday?
We won. I already know we won. I just got off the phone with Eli Manning, he's like, "Man, you know we won, don't even watch the game. It's a waste of time. We won." They ain't even gonna practice because it's so easy.
That's crazy! I guess the Falcons aren't even a threat then.
They ain't got no chance of winning. Matt Ryan is a beginner. Eli Manning was great even before he touched the pro NFL game. When he came into the NFL, Peyton Manning disappeared.
So you see the Giants winning the Super Bowl this year?
Yeah, I honestly see it. It ain't gonna be easy, but I know we're gonna win. The Packers make the game look good, but they got flaws. Wait 'til they meet Eli.
Would you put Eli Manning in the same elite class of quarterbacks as Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady?
He's creeping right behind them! He's tapping on their shoulders; I've seen it in a couple of games. They're jogging, and we're running.
Who do you see the Giants facing in the Super Bowl? Will it be a rematch of 2008, with the Giants and Patriots?
I would love that. That's what I'm wishing for on my end.

How are you feeling about the Giants game?
I'm on edge, actually; I'm 50-50 on it. The Giants have impeccable defense, and I'm an Eli [Manning] fan, but Eli has his issues sometimes. I feel like, if they just keep putting pressure on him, he'll be forced to make mistakes. On the opposite side, we'll have to be on point as well, because they got Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck coming at Matt Ryan. We gotta make sure our line is there, we can't have any dropped passes… there's a lot of stuff we have to do.
The Falcons were the top seed in the NFC last year, but lost their first game. Do you feel like this is a better team than last year's team?
I feel like we've made some big additions to the team and are only getting better. As long as we're making progress, that's all that really matters to me.
Do you see them being able to beat teams like the Packers and Saints in the playoffs?
The Packers are gonna be a tough matchup for anybody -- they're really the team to beat right now. I don't think we'll have too much of a problem with New Orleans, just because we've played them so many times. That's a rivalry game, but I don't think we'll have any problem taking care of that.
How far do you think this Falcons team can go?
I think that we can probably make it to the second or third round. If we can get past New York this week, I think that we'll be straight for the next game. If we can beat a couple of good teams, we'll have momentum, and I know that we can beat tough teams in the playoffs whenever everybody's turned up.
