Carolina Panthers (11-4) vs
Atlanta Falcons (9-6)

Time: 4:25 PM ET
Date: Sunday, December 31, 2017
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
Watch on: FOX
Odds: Falcons -4
Total O/U: 44½

The Atlanta Falcons will look to rebound from an untimely loss to New Orleans last week and will seek to claim a playoff berth as they lock horns with the Carolina Panthers in a NFC South showdown with the contest set to be broadcasted on Fox Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. ET and live from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

The Falcons, who lost to the Panthers 20-17 in the first contest of their two-game series back on November 5, can clinch a playoff berth with a win over Carolina or a Seattle loss to Arizona on Sunday. The Falcons cannot improve on their position as they are destined to finish no better than in the sixth seed with a win on Sunday.

The Panthers have plenty to play for as they can clinch the NFC South with a win on Sunday and a New Orleans loss and can also profit from an extra week of rest if they prevail this weekend and will need for the Saints, Vikings and Rams to all lose on Sunday. They enter this affair as a 4-point underdog, according to BetOnline Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 44½ points.
