The Falcons dropped two disappointing games in a row on the road, and they return home at last with an opportunity to stay competitive in a floundering NFC South. They'll have to get through the similarly disappointing Chicago Bears to grasp .500 again.
It's not going to be easy, of course, but this is a winnable game for the Falcons. They simply function better at home, the defense made a couple of small but important strides against the Giants' ground game (and they got a sack!) last week and the Bears are, for all their talent, hardly world beaters. Atlanta will hopefully walk out of the Dome Sunday evening with a win and something to build on.
