Week 13 is here and NFL teams are beginning to separate from the pack and solidify their playoff position, while others are clawing and scratching just to get in the postseason. Both examples will be on display tonight as the New Orleans Saints head to Atlanta fro an AFC South showdown with the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta (10-1) is looking to lock up the #1-overall seed in the NFC while the Saints (5-6) need to win out just to secure a playoff spot after an 04 start to their season.

 

The Steelers are suddenly getting healthier as QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) returned to a limited practice Wednesday, while WR Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) practiced fully.

 

Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey claims QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to be the guy going forward for the Bills, despite another disappointing season with Fitz as the starting QB.  Meanwhile, General Manager Buddy Nix has stated he wants to draft a QB in the 2013 NFL Draft to develop into a franchise QB, something Fitz clearly is not.
