Unshaven, unwashed and generally disheveled, I return in time for the game against mighty tenacious Oakland. Sitting at 4-3, the Falcons could use a win to boost themselves over last year's total with only half their slate of games completed.  I'm excited to see what the team can do, particularly if Michael Turner gets back on track.

Join me after the jump as we get some excitement going for our resurgent Falcons.


 

Who? Atlanta Falcons at Oakland Raiders, 4:15 p.m. ET

Where? McAfee Coliseum, Oakland, California

Weather? Where the skies stay cloudy all day....

Fun Fact? The Falcons will face former CB DeAngelo Hall and should have faced former FB Justin Griffith, but the latter is down with a season-ending injury. The Falcons' performance against Hall will likely swing the outcome of this game, given that Roddy White is as likely as he'll ever be to end up locked down this weekend. 

Injuries? OT Sam Baker is out for the Falcons, and *deep breath* Jamaal Anderson, Michael Boley, Brent Grimes, Grady Jackson, Jerious Norwood, Stephen Nicholas, Laurent Robinson and Todd Weiner are questionable. I expect Boley, Grimes, Norwood, Nicholas and Weiner to suit up. The Raiders have LB Jon Alston, LB Ricky Brown, DE Derrick Burgess, and RB Darren McFadden listed as doubtful.

Odds? Atlanta over Oakland, 2.5, Over/Under 41.5
