Atlanta Falcons Radio Network play-by-play voice Wes Durham joined The Morning Show with John Fricke & Hugh Douglas Monday to break down the team’s win over the Saints and preview the matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Durham says the most interesting part of the situation involving head coach Sean Payton is that he said he doesn’t remember doing the “You choked” sign to Devonta Freeman. He’s interested wn what the league is going to do about it.
“I’m curious on what his fine is going to be,” said Durham, if they release the amount.
There’s no doubt that the next matchup between the Falcons and Saints will be closely officiated with unsportsmanlike penalties ready to be doled out if things get out of hand early.
In the playoff picture, the Falcons’ probability of making it definitely increased over the weekend. If they win out, they’ll win the NFC South. There’s still a possibility of them getting a top seed because of how things may play out with the Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz’s health. But they need to focus on themselves instead of other teams around the league.
The Buccaneers have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs; they’ll either play as well as they have all year or they’ll roll over in Monday Night’s game.
