01:51 PM ET 12.27 | Mike Smith has talked about the importance of playing to beat the Buccaneers, but he's not crazy. That's why William Moore will sit out Week 17. The Falcons will likely try to get Roddy White a few snaps this week to keep his games played streak alive, but he likely won't log serious minutes with that lingering knee issue. Ditto Chris Owens, who is battling a hamstring issue. But they've already ruled out Moore for the Bucs game, and with very good reason. Chris Hope has stepped in and done a fine job in Moore's absence, but Moore is an All-Pro caliber safety who has had quite a remarkable year. He also injured his hamstring four weeks ago and hasn't played since.

And teams that do often earn an early exit. I don't think byes, especially those that are self-imposed are of any great benefit to teams in their next game.

Strangely enough the record book tends to agree with you. More 6 seeds than 1 seeds have won the SB over the past decade
