The NFL wraps up Week 15 with an NFC matchup on Monday Night Football. The Atlanta Falcons look to stick in the middle of the wild card race as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game kicks off at for 5:30 p.m. PT on ESPN. Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden will call the game from the booth, and Lisa Salters will be handling sideline duties.
The Falcons are 8-5, and competing with the Seattle Seahawks for the second wild card berth. If the Falcons win, they will stake sole claim to that berth. If they lose, they drop into a tie with the Seahawks, Detroit Lions, and Dallas Cowboys. This game is kind of a big deal.
Atlanta is a six point favorite, according to Odds Shark. I often prefer taking the points with a home underdog, but the Buccaneers are struggling big time. I think we see the Falcons get the W with relative ease.
