Falcons know they're close, even at 5-7: 'We have a chance'

The Falcons are 5-7, just as they were this time last year, but head coach Arthur Smith sees a difference. It starts with the standings. A year ago, the Falcons were 5-7, but four games behind the NFC South-leading Buccaneers. Tampa Bay's struggles this season have them at 5-6, so the Falcons are only a half-game back with five games remaining.

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is a stunning tribute

Not every movie can make me cry before the opening credits roll, but not every movie loses its star seven months before filming.
