So, as usual the Falcons don't make the playoffs to the exception of last year and 06's NFC Championship Run. They beat the Bills with Matt Ryan's 3 TD passes, in a death trial match-up for the Bills, 31-3 (what a surprise). This game matters nothing whatsoever, though it could be the first time in franchise history they have gone above .500 in two straight years. The Buccaneers are coming off their second upset win this season though every win this year will be an upset win.
The biggest upset this year other than Jets-Colts last week was a thriller and the Saints are officially marching backwards. Micheal Spurlock, the hot PR, will have pressure on his shoulders to repeat his performance with last week's PRTD.
