Falcons vs. Panthers Week 16 discussion, tracker, and info

The 9-5 Falcons are a win away from a playoff berth.

Let me lay the stakes out for you: If the Falcons don’t win here, their path to the NFC South crown and even a playoff spot gets a lot more complicated and a lot more dependent on what other teams do. Win here and you’re in the postseason.

That’s simple, but obviously not easy. Not when this Panthers team gets to play at home and can bring Jonathan Stewart to bear against one of the league’s shakiest run defenses, anyways. Let’s watch and hope (as many of us predict) that the Falcons can win this one. Be sure to chat with your fellow fans in the comments.
