Greetings, Raider Nation! There’s one more game in Week 15, and it’s actually one that means a lot. The Falcons take on the disappointing Buccaneers tonight in Tampa, and the Falcons have a chance to slam the door pretty solidly on many of the other playoff hopefuls in the NFC.

Matt Ryan has been on fire of late and will be chomping at the bit to get another divisional win with Julio Jones also having played some inspired football in recent weeks. The Bucs are a disaster on all sides of the ball and carry a 4-9 record into this game.

If the Falcons win, they have a really good shot at the postseason. If they lose, they open the window for jabronis like the Cowboys, Lions and Seahawks to sneak into January. Let’s hope they do us all a favor and keep the riff-raff out.
