Buccaneers, Falcons motivated to finish 2nd in NFC South
The Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will miss the playoffs. Nevertheless, both teams have something to play for in a season finale between the NFC South rivals.
The winner will finish second in the division. That's enough to keep both teams motivated. The Falcons also have a chance to state a final case for coach Dan Quinn to retain his job. Both teams have played well down the stretch in winning five of seven games.
