Thanks to the Ravens taking down the Cowboys last night 33-24, the Falcons path to the playoffs is clear. With wins today at Minnesota and Christmas weekend at home against the Rams, the Falcons will be in the post season for the first time since 2004.
The Falcons are still getting 3 today, which means that Vegas thinks this one is a toss up, but the Vikings get a field goal for being at home. I have to like Atlanta’s chances because they should be able to at least contain the Vikings running game. If that happens, and Atlanta can establish Ryan-to-White early, this one should come out smelling roses.
Just to be on the safe side, today I am still pulling for the Chargers, Redskins, and Giants.
