No one would have ever guessed that a Week 17 matchup between the 6-9 Atlanta Falcons and 6-8-1 Carolina Panthers would have so much at stake.
The winner takes the NFC South and locks up the final playoff spot in the conference.
At the half, the Atlanta Falcons were down 31-7 to the Green Bay Packers, and it looked like the game was slated to get worse in the second half.
Patrick Peterson said he wanted Julio Jones one-on-one.
Be careful what you wish for.
