Seahawks hope to stay sharp against woeful Falcons

ATLANTA - The Seattle Seahawks are expected to be watching the scoreboard as they wait to see if they'll host Washington, Minnesota or New Orleans in the playoffs.

ATLANTA - Whether it's a close game or blowout, the Atlanta Falcons can't find a way to win.

Dismal season nearing an end

GLENDALE, Ariz. - This disjointed, dysfunctional season can't end fast enough for the Atlanta Falcons.

Not Dunn yet: Falcons' veteran running back has no intentions of retiring at season's end

FLOWERY BRANCH - Warrick Dunn doesn't want his career to end with a whimper.

The three-time Pro Bowl running back, who last month became just the 22nd NFL player to rush for 10,000 career yards, has too much pride to leave the Atlanta Falcons in such disrepair.
