The 5-9 Atlanta Falcons are playing for the NFC South lead against their hated rivals, the 6-8 New Orleans Saints, in Week 16.

The most critical game of the year begins. Thanks to a litany of embarrassing losses, just enough wins to keep things interesting and the inherent weakness of the NFC South, this Week 16 matchup between the Falcons and Saints could very well determine the winner of the division.

If this follows the established course of Falcons-Saints games in recent years, these two teams will battle down to the very end in a sloppy, close game. I'm hopeful the Falcons can win—I never, ever want them to lose to New Orleans—and if they do there's a good shot they win in Week 17 and make it to the playoffs. A loss here would knock them out of the hunt entirely.
