Welcome to Week 17 of the NFL season. A week that is super exciting for lots of fans around the league. Unfortunately for Rams fans this weekend means absolutely nothing. There is very little intrigue in this one for the Rams outside of draft position. If the Rams were to lose today they most likely will have the #2 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. This could be the last game for a host of Rams including Torry Holt and Jim Haslett. There will be a lot of decisions to make after the game today.
As far as the actual game today the Falcons are playing for the possibility of winning the NFC South title and getting the bye in the playoffs. So they have everything to play for. I would expect a beatdown by the Falcons this afternoon. Back in 2005 the Rams gave up 327 yards rushing in the Playoffs. You could see the Falcons approach a number like that again this afternoon.
