Before the season began, many prognosticators picked the Atlanta Falcons to challenge the Saints for supremacy in the NFC South. They apparently were right.

With two games remaining in the regular season, the Falcons (12-2) have already clinched a playoff berth. But with a victory Monday night at the Georgia Dome or in the season finale against the Carolina Panthers (2-12), the Falcons can wrap up the NFC South title and the home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
