I don’t have much to say about this game other than this: It is the most winnable game left by a wide margin, and the one that the Falcons seem most likely to pull out. Chances are decent Atlanta’s going to win one of their final three, at least, even if it runs contrary to the draft stock improvement we’re all gunning for at this point. It might as well be this one, easily the most embarrassing potential loss in a slate full of them.
So without further ado, here’s what you’ll need to know to watch. May the Football Gods have mercy on our souls.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Arizona Cardinals, Week 15
When: Sunday, December 16, 1 p.m. EST
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
Announcers: Kenny Albert, Ronde Barber, Sara Walsh
Radio: 92.9 The Game
Key Questions: Seriously, can this Atlanta offense get back on track against one of the league’s lesser defenses? Can their defense put the brakes on one of the NFL’s worst offenses? Will anyone actually show up to MBS to watch this game?
Prediction: Falcons win, 23-17
