We’ve waited all week for...well, okay, there’s no Falcons game. But there is football, and that will have to be good enough.
Today’s key matchups include Saints-Jets, Panthers-Packers, and Seahawks-Rams. All of those will have playoff implications for the Falcons, which we’ll break down in more detail after the slate of games today. All you need to know is that you should be fans of the Jets, Packers, and possibly Rams today to help Atlanta along. Then we’ll just need the Falcons to get the job done tomorrow night and they’ll be pushing their way a little closer to the playoffs.
Use this as your all-purpose open thread for both the day and night games, and we’ll wrap things up again once the dust has settled on the day. Remember: The only good NFC South game today is the one that ends in a loss for our rivals, so root for that outcome.
