Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have no chance of advancing to the playoffs and all they want is to finish the season on a high note. Atlanta has been doing well as of late, racking up three straight wins. The Falcons currently occupy the third spot in the NFC South Division but will finish this season with a losing record. Leading the way for Atlanta will be quarterback Matt Ryan. He has 4,153 passing yards to go along with 25 passing touchdowns. He needs to take care of the ball more, having thrown 14 interceptions that have hurt Atlanta. To pull the rug from under the Buccaneers, the Falcons need to play well defensively. They are allowing opponents to score 25.1 points and 357.6 yards per game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay is looking to repeat over the Falcons and also get a rare home win. At 7-8, the Bucs are in second place of the NFC South although some home wins could have made it better. They have lost five of its seven home games. Leading the way for the Buccaneers is Jameis Winston who has been erratic this NFL season. He has thrown 4,908 yards and 31 passing touchdowns but has thrown the ball away with 28 interceptions. Tampa Bay could also work on defending better. They are allowing the opposition 28.1 points and 342.0 yards per game. A solid defensive performance could be a fitting finale for the host team.
