The Atlanta Falcons enter their Week 15 game with the Seattle Seahawks needing to win two of their next three games to lock up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
Depending on what happens with St. Louis today, Seattle can move into first place in the weak, weak, weak NFC West. If the Rams win, the Seahawks will need to win to keep pace, and if the Rams lose and the Seahawks can win, Seattle will move into first.
The winner of the division, of course, will make the playoffs and automatically get a first-round home game.
Once the playoffs start, regular season records do not matter, as the Arizona Cardinal can attest to. They were 9-7 when they made their Super Bowl run, knocking off 11-5 Atlanta and 11-5 Carolina in the process.
Atlanta is 6-0 at home this year and 19-1 with Matt Ryan at quarterback in his career. Obviously, home-field would be huge for them.
New Orleans, second in the NFC South, is currently in a battle with Baltimore.
When the Rams and Saints finish play, I will be sure to update you on the details.
