Eliminate the Cowboys or Seahawks with a win - what more motivation do you need? Plus you get the opportunity to play for the division title the following week at home!

Curious choice for the late afternoon game although I can only see it going one way even with the 49ers late season resurgence.

I fully expected the Cowboys and Seahawks to be the afternoon game. I'm pretty shocked with that choice. I'm all for showing all the teams, but that screams blowout, so why?

Anyway, c'mon Saints!

Saints v Falcons

The first meeting between these two went down to the wire, and the Saints really should have at least forced Overtime. They played most of that game without Alvin Kamara, and with him back and HFA, I think they avenge that earlier defeat...

Saints 34 Falcons 24

49ers v Jaguars

No idea why this is being shown instead of Dallas v Seattle. The 49ers look to have finally found their QB in Jimmy G, and have the potential to at least keep this close, but Jacksonville's Defense should carry them to victory...

49ers 14 Jaguars 24

Texans v Steelers

With Antonio Brown out, Houston can expect to see a lot of LeVeon Bell in this one. It could also be a big day for JuJu Smith Schuster against a vulnerable Texans' secondary.

This could have been a real shootout earlier in the season, but T.J Yates is no DeShaun Watson, and this should be a comfortable Pittsburgh win...

Texans 16 Steelers 31

A huge game. We always seem to play each other close. The Saints have been the class of the division since week 3 but their defence has injuries and doesn't seem as good as it was earlier in the year. I do love when we beat that gobshite Sean Payton. He is such a low life. Hardly a surprise he is great mates with Heath Evans. Sarkisian needs to feature our backs in the passing game. That will open things up for our offense if he does. I'll go with my heart over my head and say Falcons by 3. 27-24.

Nothing personal - just maybe then the media might give it a break regarding your lot! (Or maybe that's wishful thinking).

Matt Ryan is the only QB to throw 3 picks in a game and still win the game this year and he's done it twice. If he doesn't have to do (or attempt) it three times then I like our chances particularly with the Saints best wide out having a dodgy hammy!

How was that not PI on that last 3rd Down? Julio has to be one of the most hard done by wideouts when it comes to PI and holding being called on him!

And again on that deep throw! Ridiculous

Consecutive games with horrendous officiating.

Tell me it isn't DPI when the ball lands 5 yards away from where Julio is tackled (so that's two obvious ones in this half alone).

The Coleman penalty was atrocious as well. I guess he'll be receiving a fine of $9k like Allen did on Monday for the same thing!
