Falcons vs. Panthers Week 17 Open Thread

The last game of the season begins.

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons take on a Carolina Panthers team hoping to make some noise in the playoffs. The Falcons can't knock the Panthers out, but can affect their seeding today.

It's also the last game of Tony Gonzalez's career, which means it will be both a great game and a bittersweet one regardless of the outcome. We may expect a whupping, but remember that this is the last NFL game for your favorite team for more than eight months. Enjoy it.
