CARDINALS vs. FALCONS (SUN NOV 18, 1 PM ET)
Beware Thy Neighbor! Week 11 NFC West Matchups + Previews
The Falcons were handed their first loss of the season in their last game and now face a reeling Cardinals team that has lost 5 straight. The Falcons played pretty good offense in their last game against the Saints, but their D could not contain Drew Brees or the Saints’ rushing offense.
Matt Ryan has many great targets at his disposal and passed for over 400 yards in the loss to the Saints and the Cardinals and their 2nd ranked pass defense and solid pass rush has to play well in this game.
Michael Turner was stuffed against the Saints’ run D, but can the Cardinals and their less than stellar run defense make that happen again?
John Skelton did not have a bad game in the Cardinals last loss to the Packers, but it is key that he has time in the pocket since the Arizona offensive line has surrendered the most sacks in the league.
The Cardinals rushing offense has been non-existent this season ranking dead last in the league.
The one thing the Cardinals have going for them on offense is facing an Atlanta defense that ranks 20th against the pass and 25th against the run.
This one is not a tough call, as I think the Falcons will easily win this game at home and send the Cardinals to their 6th straight loss.
