Vikes' third-down offense; Falcons' underrated balance

Scouts Inc. gives you 12 more things to pay attention to in the NFC postseason:

1. New York Giants
• The Giants usually have success at stopping the run with only their front seven -- especially when DE Justin Tuck moves around on the defensive line to get a favorable matchup. This gives them good flexibility in their coverage schemes and blitz packages.

• Without WR Plaxico Burress, this passing offense has used a more controlled and short passing attack. Most of their success will come off play-action, which is set up by their bruising running game.
