The 1-2 Atlanta Falcons face the 2-1 Cincinnati Bengals which looks to be a high scoring affair.
Both teams are coming off bad loses and will look to turn things around.
Matt Ryan and Calvin Ridley showed a lot of promise last game and look to be in rhythm for this game. That performance last week scared the league and put everybody on notice.
The Falcons looked good last week until Ricardo Allen went down for the season with a leg injur . The Falcons only made 1 defensive stop after his injury which had fans calling for a replacement during the week but DanQuinn chose to stay in house and revisited his “next man up” speech.
This week is huge for the defense with AJ Green and Dalton having good starts. With a full week of practice you can expect the defense to be more sound and prepared for the Bengals passing attack.
The offense is clicking on all phases and it’s up to Dan Quinn to get the defense in tune. Hopefully the injury bug can spare us this week and we can finally get some rhythm.
3 keys to game
– Must contain AJ Green(We struggled with Michael Thomas last week, we need Trufant to earn his paycheck this week)
– Defense must show up(With Takk back and people questioning Vic Beasley’s heart we need to see a resurgence this week)
– Run the score up(Get a lead and grow it,don’t our foot off the pedal)
