Despite the Saints’ two-game winning streak, their slim hopes for a wild card spot died before last week’s kickoff of their eventual home victory over Tampa Bay. Instead, New Orleans will spend the first day of 2017 trying to deny its archrivals a bye in the first round of the postseason. The Saints also can finish at .500 with a win in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons are finally living up to their potential. After the final two seasons of the Mike Smith era ended in a total of 10 wins, the Falcons showed signs of improvement last season under Dan Quinn going 8-8. But still, it seemed like Atlanta was better than it showed on the field. Enter the 2016 edition, which sits atop the NFC South at 8-5 with three games remaining.

It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish. The Atlanta Falcons, in their second year under head coach Dan Quinn have learned that the hard way. Last year, a surprise 6-3 start became a frustrating 8-8 ending. This team squandered a playoff spot through shoddy defense and an offense that cracked 24 points just once over the last seven games.
