A fun weekend of football is almost here. For Falcons fans, there are lots of games in play that impact their playoff hopes, but as this article states, none of this matters if Atlanta cannot win on the road at Minnesota.
Here’s your NFC rooting guide: Dallas plays Baltimore on Saturday and Tampa Bay faces San Diego at 1 p.m. Sunday. Falcon fans are rooting for the AFC teams, Baltimore and San Diego.
The Falcons will hit the field knowing the outcomes of those two key games. The Philadelphia at Washington game is at the same time 4:15 p.m., while Carolina plays the New York Giants in the Sunday night game. Washington and the Giants are the teams the Falcons fans are rooting for to win.
Regardless of the outcome, it has been a great year for the Falcons. Even if they do not make the playoffs, which will be disappointing, it will be a hell of an off-season. Waiting to next year will actually have some meaning for the first time in a long time because the Falcons will actually be expected to be a Top 10 team next year. Who would have guessed?
Go Falcons! And Ravens, Chargers, Redskins, and Giants!
