The calendar year is almost over, and the Atlanta Falcons have one final game before we flip to 2024, with the Week 18 Saints matchup coming in the new year.

This one will see them take to the road to face the Chicago Bears, who like the Indianapolis Colts last week are a team finding more success recently than they did early in the season. The Falcons are hellbent on trying to stay alive in the NFC’s playoff race until the end; the Bears are effectively out but would relish the chance to play spoiler and put a strong finish out there, especially because they’re getting a top pick regardless thanks to Carolina.

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