Falcons vs. Saints Week 17 game time, TV schedule, stream, odds, and more

The intrigue here involves the fact that an Atlanta win guarantees a playoff bye for the Falcons.

This is the final regular game in the Georgia Dome for these Atlanta Falcons, and they have a chance to bid a fond (again regular season) farewell to their home for the last two-plus decades by beating the hated Saints and locking up a bye and at least one home game. That would be an ideal way to end this season, too.

We all know the Saints aren’t just going to roll over and play dead, unfortunately, so the Falcons will have to get the job done against the NFL’s second-best offense and avoid the upset. They’re thankfully headed to the postseason and a home game either way, but it’d be nice to have that bye.

Here’s what you need to know for the season’s final game. Go Falcons, amirite?
