The Atlanta Falcons will look to continue their push towards an NFC Wild Card berth as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars at the Georgia Dome on “Thursday Night Football.”
Atlanta has won three of its last four games and is coming off a 31-23 victory at Carolina in Week 14 to improve to 8-and-5 on the season.
The Dirty Birds currently hold the fifth-seed in the NFC playoff picture and have a crucial head-to-head advantage over Detroit.
Chicago holds a tie-breaker over Atlanta, but has dropped three in-a-row to fall to 7-and-6. Meanwhile, the Jags snapped a three-game slide with a 41-14 rout over Tampa Bay on Sunday to up their mark to 4-and-9. Jacksonville is just 1-and-5 on the road this season.
The Jaguars beat the Falcons, 13-7, the last time the two teams met in 2007.
