Falcons look ahead to closing season against 3 division foes

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Falcons coach Dan Quinn likes his team's playoff chances heading into the final three games of the season.

At 8-5, Atlanta is one-half game behind Carolina for the second and final NFC wild-card spot. The Falcons are just one full game behind New Orleans for the NFC South lead, though they'll likely need some help to win the division for a second straight year.

The schedule closes against division foes - at Tampa Bay on Dec. 18, at New Orleans in Week 16 and at home against Carolina in the finale.
