The Falcons underachieving season is coming to an end. Instead of playoff scenarios they are looking at draft scenarios. They play host to the Carolina Panthers who have a lot to play for: division title and home field advantage are both within their grasps. The Falcons have won 2 of their last 4 games and could rally around Tony Gonzalez in possibly his last game of his great Hall of Fame career. Matt Ryan and Gonzalez’s emotion, plus a possible let down for the Panthers, give the Falcons a 15% chance of a win.
