Rice’s Record Safe? Megatron May Not Play Against Atlanta

Two final games in Atlanta’s 2012 regular season. If they win out, they’ll tie the franchise record for most wins in a season with the 1998 squad that went to the Super Bowl. Still, more people are going to be interested in seeing if and when Megatron will surpass Jerry Rice.
