It’s win or go home time for the National Flag Football League of Atlanta.

The 10-week regular season, or what was left of it after a few weeks of rain delays, is over and the six-team league opens its playoffs on Saturday. The league-leading Broncos (7-1) take on the 71 Clippers (1-7), the Pirates (5-3) play the Raiders (2-6) and the Wildcats (5-3) face the Rams (4-4).

Games begin at 10 a.m. at Central Park in Midtown. The winners of those games play for the championship on June 28.

On June 14, the Broncos closed out the season by defeating the Rams 35-7. The Pirates blanked the 71 Clippers 21-0 and the Wildcats downed the Raiders 14-7.
