If the Falcons are going to be favored in one game all year, this is pretty much has to be it. Fresh off a nasty loss against the Bucs o' Tampa Bay, the Falcons should come out swinging against a young Chiefs squad hamstrung by questionable coaching.
This week, the team will likely look to destroy the Chiefs on the ground with the help of Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood. I'll also be looking to see further progress from Matt Ryan and some good old fashioned quarterback smashing from the vaunted Falcons' front seven. This could be a fun one!
After knocking on wood and crossing your fingers, be sure to join me after the jump!
Who? Atlanta Falcons vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET
Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
Weather? Raining? I'm sorry, I can't hear because I live in a dome!
Fun Fact? Tyler Thigpen will be the third starting quarterback for the Chiefs this year. Brodie Croyle is hurt, Damon Huard got hurt and here we are.
Injuries? Sam Baker is probable after suffering a concussion last weekend. Unfortunately, Michael Boley, Grady Jackson, Alex Stepanovich, Todd Weiner and Tyson Clabo are all questionable. Jackson seems likely to play, but losing more than one lineman or Boley would be a killer. The Chiefs will be missing QB Brodie Croyle and CB Patrick Surtain. DEs Turk McBride and Tamba Hall are both questionable.
Odds? Atlanta over KC 6.0, Over/Under 36.0
Foe? You'll definitely want to check out Arrowhead Pride, a great Chiefs blog with one of the best communities out there. Chris will surely weigh in on the game as well, so be sure to ridicule him say hello!
GO FALCONS! Let's beat the Chiefs!
