Falcons Eliminated From Playoff Contention

The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders wore special holiday uniforms on Sunday as they cheered the Falcons to victory over the Carolina Panthers. Here are a few of our favorite pictures of the cheerleaders on gameday.

After Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers, the Falcons remained in the hunt for a spot in the NFC playoff race.

Due to the Giants 49-17 loss to Minnesota in Week 16, Atlanta has been eliminated from the postseason.

The Vikings and Seahawks needed to lose out and the Falcons needed to win out for the Falcons to make the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Minnesota's win gives them a 10-5 record on the season and prevents there from being a three-team tie for the final NFC Wild-Card spot. Despite Seattle only having nine wins on the season, the Seahawks have already clinched a playoff berth by holding the tiebreakers over the Falcons.
