The Atlanta Falcons travel to play the St Louis Rams in their home dome in St Louis on November 21st. The Atlanta Falcons also play in a dome and will be well prepared for this game against a tricky NFL foe. Not many gave the Atlanta Falcons much of a chance in the first Thursday night NFL game but the Falcons stood up to the test and finished against the Baltimore Ravens.
Atlanta Falcons Defense vs St Louis Rams Offense
Sam Bradford and the St Louis Rams offense are the best offense in the NFC West. This is not saying much about the NFC West competition but this is Bradford’s first season in the NFL. Steven Jackson is the best running back in the NFL that had dropped off the map because of injuries and a horrible St Louis Rams offense. Now that the Rams are in contention everyone is recognizing Jackson as a premiere running back in the NFL once again.
The Atlanta Falcons defense is ignored as one of the defensive powers in the NFL. In their game against Joe Flacco and Baltimore Ravens last weekend, they played Flacco well, forcing him out of his comfort zone and into mistakes. John Abraham is the man on the end of the defensive line for the Atlanta Falcons. Abraham leads the team in sacks and also can drop back and cause chaos in the middle of the field. The Atlanta Falcons defense has the edge over the St Louis Rams offense.
St Louis Rams Defense vs Atlanta Falcons Offense
The St Louis Rams defense is solid but average. Their best player is James Laurinaitis for the St Louis Rams defense but James Hall has quietly been getting to the quarterback off the defensive end position. Hall is in his 11th season and has been a force to be reckoned with.
The Atlanta Falcons offense led by Matt Ryan passed for 316 yards against the feared Baltimore Ravens defense. Roddy White looked healthy in that game and now has 10 days to heal up for this game. The rest could play a major part in this game and Michael Turner could use some recharging time after another lackluster performance of 39 yards on the ground. The Atlanta Falcons offense has the edge over the St Louis Rams defense.
