Hey, we're 3-2!
For the Falcons to match or exceed 90% of "expert" predictions for the season by getting to four wins, they'll have to roll past the Bears. This may be their toughest opponent yet, a potent team with a great defense and a workable offense.
As such, we'll need to project all our good feelings at the Falcons and similar blah blah blah. I'll see you all in the comments, after the jump.
Who? Atlanta Falcons vs. Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. ET
Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
Weather? Hopefully loud with a chance of intimidation, but no weather in a dome.
Fun Fact? The Bears have defeated the Falcons in each of their last three meetings. That's a fact, but I'm not sure it's fun.
Injuries? WR Laurent Robinson is out again, and WR Roddy White is hurting and probably 50/50 to play. DT Grady Jackson, DT Jason Jefferson and TE Justin Peelle are all questionable or worse, as is C Todd McClure. The Bears are likely without top receiver Brandon Lloyd, and CB Nathan Vasher is also questionable.
Odds? Chicago over Atlanta 3.0, Over/Under 43.5
Foe? That'd be WCG of Windy City Gridiron, who ably covers the Ursus(es?). Be sure to check him out on Sunday as you tune in to the game.
GO FALCONS! Let's maul these Bears!
