The Christmas Eve links are on the way.

Sometimes the links are early, sometimes the links are late, but they’re always on time.

Preparing for Falcons vs. Chiefs

We’re getting geared up for a matchup that would be absolutely thrilling in a year where the Falcons were a good, winning football team. Because the Falcons are 4-10 and the Chiefs are 13-1, the matchup fills me with more dread than anything else.

Still, it’s happening regardless, so we may as well be ready. Yesterday we talked about favorite memories from the all-time series and what you’ll want to know ahead of the game.

We also talked about how the Falcons are 10.5 point underdogs, which seems...more than fair.

Finally, we got the latest injury report, and it features Alex Mack and Julio Jones. That could mean a start at center for Matt Hennessy and another big game from Calvin Ridley.

Breaking down last week

We took one final glance back at the disappointing loss last weekend, with the gang breaking things down on Falcoholic Live.

We also found a positive even in that mess, as Kevin Knight took a closer video look at Calvin Ridley’s career game and dominance against the Buccaneers. Now let us never speak about it again.

Merry Christmas tomorrow to all who celebrate, Happy Holidays to those who don’t, and I hope everyone takes the day off and enjoys it. We’ll have an open thread for the game tomorrow if you’re around, and otherwise we’ll get ready for Sunday.
