I will keep the polls open until 2:00 EST today.  But here are the tentative powerball numbers.  13 votes cast, throwing out the highest and lowest votes leaves us an average of Falcons-5.5. 
 
Lions win on balls 1-19, Falcons win on balls 20-59.  This game will be decided by the third white ball drawn tonight.
 
Note: A lot of powerball results sites will not list the winning numbers in the order drawn, but in ascending order.  Here is one that lists them correctly in the order drawn.
 
Edit: Falcons-5.5 is the final line based on late votes.

So I voted my Falcons by 7. Lions pose a solid challenge, dangerous offensive team. But I think we are 5 points better on a neutral field, bumping to 7 at home.

Falcons by 6. This is a young Lion's team that will be better next year with some very good fundamentals in place but I just don't see how they shut down the Falcon's offense. The Falcon's have a well rounded D and should be able to hold the Lions to under 24. I might be tempted to tease the Falcons and Browns this weekend ;)

As the Lions owner I agree with this assessment, I do think our tackles could neutralize the Falcons edge rushers and I we may be able to get the run game going on them. However, I don't think the Lions would be able to get the necessary pressure on Luck to take the pressure off our secondary.
