Panthers: NFC South preview – Week 16
4 of 5
Week 15: Atlanta Falcons 24, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21
Atlanta narrowly escaped central Florida with a win on Monday night as the Buccaneers missed a potential game-tying field goal wide right. In a close divisional battle the Falcons keep their playoff hopes alive and can still win the division if they stay out of the loss column over the next two weeks.
Week 16: at New Orleans Saints (10-4), 1:00pm
Already having won a home game over the Saints gives the Falcons a lot of confidence entering this pivotal matchup. However, the Saints typically play better on their home field and can also assure themselves of a spot in the playoffs with a win.
