The Falcons and Steelers are locked in tight divisional races at the moment, with each needing every possible win over the last three weeks to sew up a playoff spot. Given that both offenses are stellar and both defenses are scuffling, this promises to be a high-scoring, down-to-the-wire sort of game. With the stakes and the potential for lots of offense, this one ought to be fun to watch.
My hope is that the Falcons will be able to slow down the potent Steelers attack and get things going through the air in the Georgia Dome, perhaps forcing a couple of turnovers along the way. That's the best recipe for success against this Pittsburgh team, and a win here would certainly make the sledding easier for Atlanta as they head into two NFC South matchups in Weeks 16 and 17.
As always, use this as your open thread. Let's hope we're celebrating a win by mid-afternoon.
