A Look Ahead and the Gilded Drinking Cup of Must-Win

You know what I hate? The fact that, with a scant six games left, every single one of our remaining contests is an absolute must win for the playoffs. Know what's worse? That we have to end the year with a 4-2 run just to get those back-to-back winning seasons.

Bucs_medium 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 
Where: Georgia Dome
When: Sunday November 29th, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: FOX
Why: Divisional Game

Importance: Serious Business. Duh.

Notes: We get the lackluster Bucs at home after the second two-game losing skid of the season. Sure wouldn't want to be wearing a burgundy and pewter in the Dome on Sunday. Here's hoping Norwood's back in the lineup.

The Falcons win if: at least one of our banged up players returns and the team plays with a huge, Stone Mountain-sized chip on their shoulder.

The Bucs win if: Josh Freeman suddenly turns into Eli Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Tony Romo, or the Good Jake Delhomme.

Prediction: Falcons win.

Eagles_medium 

Philadelphia Eagles
Where: Georgia Dome
When: Sunday December 6th, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: FOX
Why: Because Eagles and Falcons are natural enemies.

Importance: Serious Business. Duh, again

Notes: I still say the Eagles are as inconsistent as we are. Suffice to say, this one will be close.

The Falcons win if: they show up to the Dome as determined to destroy their opponent as they did back in October at Candlestick Park.

The Eagles win if: they air it out and run hard, which they're likely to do.

Prediction: Falcons win, perhaps by a, gasp, Elam field goal (tm).

Saints_medium 

New Orleans Saints 2: The Season Definer
Where: Georgia Dome
When: Sunday December 13th, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: FOX
Why: Divisional Game

Importance: Serious Business. 

Notes: If we win this, I will seriously (and I mean it) walk outside of my apartment in nothing but boxers and my Ryan jersey and chant Here We Go Falcons at the top of my lungs.

Prediction: Falcons lose.

Jets_medium 

New York Jets 
Where: Giants Stadium
When: Sunday December 20th, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: FOX
Why: Because New Yorkers couldn’t get enough of us the first go round against the Giants.

Importance: Serious Business

Notes: Really, really, really hoping the crappy Sanchez shows up. Also, hope we show up as well.

Prediction: Falcons lose

Bills_medium

Buffalo Bills
Where: Georgia Dome
When: Sunday December 27th, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: CBS
Why: The Bills aren't looking too good. Uh oh...

Importance: Serious Business

Notes: The Bills' passing attack is almost as abysmal as the Bucs'. Here's hoping it stays that way for this game.

Prediction: Falcons win

Bucs_medium

Tampa Bay Buccaneers With a Vengeance
Where: Raymond James Stadium
When: Sunday January 3rd, 2009 @ 1:00pm
Network: FOX
Why: Divisional Game

Importance: Serious Business

Notes: Tampa may have more to gain from this game than we would, and it's in their stadium to boot. We better bring our A game.

Prediction: Falcons win, barring any miracles for the struggling Bucs.

Current season record: 5-5 (Wins against MIA, CAR, SF, CHI, WAS; losses against NE, DAL, NO, CAR, NYG)

Current season prediction: 9-7 (Wins: MIA, CAR, SF, CHI, WAS, TB, PHI, BUF, TB; Loss: NE, DAL, CAR, NO, NYG, NO, NYJ)

tlozwarlock's Current Prediction record: 8-2 (Sometimes, it sucks to be right.)
