Falcons Vs. Chargers: Atlanta Unlikely To See No-Huddle Offense From San Diego

The Atlanta Falcons are unlikely to see much no-huddle offense from the San Diego Chargers, the Falcons' official website reports. The Falcons were able to handle Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos' no-huddle offense, but the Chargers are more likely to take a paced, deliberate march down the field.

San Diego didn't run a single no-huddle snap in their victory over the Tennessee Titans, something that allowed them to win the time of possession battle by an incredible margin of 43 to 16 minutes. In a press conference on Wednesday, Falcons head coach Mike Smith downplayed expectations of a no-huddle offense, but did say he expected to see some looks the team hadn't seen before.
