The Falcons are looking at home field advantage if the win one of their final two games. The Falcons are coming off an opening when against the defending Superbowl champs, the Giants. The Falcons shutout the Giants 34-0 in the Georgia Dome. They are needing one more win to have home field advantage until the Superbowl. The Falcons travel to play the Lions this Saturday. The Falcons are looking to show all their critics that they can win a playoff game and possibly the Superbowl. The have to take it one step at a time and not get overwhelmed by their record. They have a team capable of going all the way. They have been good on defense especially with with one of the best cornerbacks in the league, Brent Grimes out for the season. They are looking for safety William Moore to come back this week after missing the last two games. The Falcons offense has been finding a lot of success also this season. The Falcons are one of the only two teams in the NFL who are undefeated at home. The other team undefeated at home is the Seahawks. The Falcons have come a long way, but will they clinch home field advantage and make a run for the Superbowl this season is yet to be answered.

The Falcons are going to play the Giants this Sunday. This will be a rematch that will show if the Falcons are ready for the postseason. The Falcons were beaten by the Giants in the first round of the playoffs last year. The Falcons only scored 2 points off a safety in that game. The Falcons are looking to show how much they have grown from their defeat last season. They will have to do better than they played last week in Carolina. The Falcons are looking to show how they can rebound from a tough loss, while the Giants are coming of a big win. I am predicting to be the " Rematch Of The Year ".

Sunday the Falcons travel to play the Panthers. The Falcons came from behind to beat the Panthers 30-28 earlier this season. The Falcons have been playing very good so far. They struggled against the Panthers in their first match up this season. The defense came up with a big play to put the hungry Panthers away. The Falcons have already clinched their division, but are looking to earn home field advantage in the playoffs. They will have to contain Cam Newton, who has reestablished himself as a mobile quarterback these last few weeks. The Falcons run defense has improved a lot this season, but there are still holes that need to be filled. The Falcons are going to be taken head on by the Panthers in this divisional game. In the NFL records are tossed aside every week. We will see a good game against these two teams Sunday.

The Falcons clinched the NFC South after the Buccaneer lost to the Broncos. This is the 5th title in franchise history. They are looking to win a playoff game after being defeated majorly the last 3 seasons. The Falcons are aiming for the first Superbowl win in Franchise History. They have a lot to work on, but they have showed improvement week after week. They defeated their hated rivals the Saints Thursday night in the Georgia Dome. They also ended Drew Brees touchdown streak. The Falcons still have not played their best football yet. They travel to play the Panthers and Cam Newton this Sunday. They just need to win 2 of their last 4 games to have home field advantage in the playoffs.
