What channel is Saints vs. Falcons on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Week 18 game

The Falcons and Saints will battle for a potential NFC South crown and playoff spot when they meet in the regular-season finale on Sunday.

Atlanta needs to defeat New Orleans and the Panthers have to beat the Buccaneers to make the postseason. Under that scenario, the Falcons, Buccaneers and Saints are each 8-9, but Atlanta would win the division based head-to-head records.

However, if the Buccaneers beat the Panthers, Tampa Bay is the division champ regardless of the Falcons-Saints finish. 

Atlanta is coming off a disappointing 37-17 loss to the Bears on a snowy day in Chicago. The Falcons secured their sixth consecutive losing season with the setback. 

Taylor Heinicke made his straight start in place of the benched Desmond Ridder and threw for 163 yards with touchdown and three interceptions. He also ran 24 yards for a score. Atlanta running back Bijan Robinson had 15 carries for 75 yards.

The Saints can win the NFC South and earn the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs with a win over the Falcons and a loss or tie by Tampa Bay. If New Orleans ties Atlanta and the Buccaneers lose to the Panthers, the Saints also will win the division.

New Orleans can qualify for a wild-card spot with a win over the Falcons and losses or ties by Seattle and Green Bay. If New Orleans ties Atlanta it will need Seattle and Green Bay to lose. 

The Saints had a vital 23-13 victory over the Buccaneers in Week 17 to boost their playoff hopes. Quarterback Derek Carr completed 24 of 32 passes for 197 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. 

New Orleans running back running Alvin Kamara left the game in the second quarter with a sprained an ankle.

Atlanta beat New Orleans 24-15 in Week 12.
