I'm nearly out of ways to say that this should be a quality, exciting game that is important for the Falcons' playoff hopes. Let's just go with "this should be a quality, exciting game that is important for the Falcons' playoff hopes." I think that covers it.

Everything you need to know is after the jump, and be sure to check out SB Nation's new NFL portal. Nifty icon, activate!


Who? Atlanta Falcons at San Diego Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET

Where? Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, California

Weather? Sunny as the surface of the sun.

Fun Fact? I heard Michael Turner used to play for the Chargers. Can anyone confirm this?

Injuries? Big ups to the official site, which tells us that T Sam Baker and WR Laurent Robinson are out. DE John Abraham, LB Keith Brooking, K Jason Elam, WR Brian Finneran, CB Brent Grimes, DT Grady Jackson, T Todd Weiner and WR Roddy White are all questionable, plus a couple others. The Chargers have DE Keith Grennan FB Mike Tolbert listed as doubtful, with a few other probables.

Odds? San Diego over Atlanta 5.0 (?), O/U 49

Foe? That'd be Bolts From The Blue, our network's fine Chargers site and steward of the fanbase that will hopefully be less happy with the outcome of this game.

GO FALCONS! Let's employ spike traps to slow these Chargers!
