At stake
The Falcons and Cardinals have been eliminated from the playoffs.

Key matchup
Falcons CB DeAngelo Hall vs. Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald. Hall has been one of the few bright spots for the Falcons this season, shutting down teams' top receivers. Hall might be remembered this season for his outburst against the Panthers in Week 3, but what is often overlooked is how he took Panthers receiver Steve Smith out of that game. Fitzgerald was elected to the Pro Bowl team after being near the top of all receiving categories. The Saints did a pretty good job of holding Fitzgerald to only two receptions, but he did manage to score a touchdown. Fitzgerald is one of Warner's favorite targets near the end zone and has scored at least one touchdown in his last five games.

Did you know?
Falcons receiver Roddy White needs 1 yard for his first career 1,000-yard season. ... Warner has had at least two touchdown passes in his last six games.
