The only thing that matters in this final game is that the players get through it healthy and the roster battles are decided once and for all. The Falcons will have less than 48 hours to decide who they’re keeping on the 53 man roster and practice squad after the game, so it’ll be critically important that they get a good look at everyone and confirm the choices they want to make. If the Falcons get into the season with a strong, healthy roster, then the last eight months have been a success.
Here’s what you’ll need know to watch the game. We’ll see you here tonight for a live discussion.
