How to watch Falcons - Bills in Week 17

The 9-6 Bills want to sew up a playoff berth for the third straight season, while 7-8 Atlanta hopes for a wild upset.

Atlanta Falcons vs Buffalo Bills Set Number: X161426 TK1

Gameday! The Falcons are going to hope for a massive upset on the road in snow against the Buffalo Bills, who look like one of the best teams in the NFL right now. They’ll need a terrific effort to get it, but we’d all love to see Arthur Smith and company get a signature win before the season wraps up, so let’s hope.

Here’s what you’ll need to know for the game ahead.
