We're gunna get lit up like the Christmas Tree in Whoville I feel like. Although our defense seems to step it up the first half in prime time games, they slowly deteriorate to nothing come the 3rd and 4th quarter. Lets hope for a W.
If Red zone offense doesn't improve, the Pats are going to win.

Should be easy. I heard Bledsoe got hurt and they're starting this QB who was a 6th round pick.
I think the red zone issues come down to the O-Line, because all great offensive teams are able to run the ball in short yardage situations which makes play-action calls so effective. But we know our O-Line rarely gets that kind of push when both sides know what's coming, and that's why the Falcons are basically "forced" to line up in obvious passing formations in short yardage/goal line situations.
rotoworldESPN's Falcons writer Vaughn McClure reports Steven Jackson is actually dealing with a hamstring injury and is expected to be sidelined until Week 7.
Jackson's injury has been classified as a thigh issue for the past week. It could be a typo, but McClure notes the injury was "originally called a thigh injury" in his post. The Falcons host the Patriots next Sunday before hosting the Jets the following week. They have their bye in Week 6 before welcoming the Bucs to town in Week 7. Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling filled in admirably for Jackson against the Dolphins. Those two will continue to split the load for the foreseeable future. Jackson owners just need to wait it out.
Hope nobody gets injured. It'll be tough to win at the Georgia Dome.
Tony got hurt in the last game and looks like a shell of himself so as far as I'm concerned he is included. Asante hasn't been at full strength with the lingering hamstring issue. McClain was hurt last game also, but IDK what's up with him. And Mike Smith said in his press conference that Trueblood got "tired" during the game, which is expected/fascinating/depressing all in one.

Yeah and that's the crazy/frustrating part about it: these injuries are the kind that linger so it's all up in the air. Nobody knows when Roddy will be himself, same with Sean, and I've already lowered my expectations for S-Jax.Originally Posted by Ramon Nivar
My vote goes to Corey Peters for best defender though (well, through 3 games). Run D has been stout thanks to him.
