The Atlanta Falcons will try to not become the first team to fall to the Indianapolis Colts this weekend while New Orleans and Tampa Bay meet in a key divisional match up.

Atlanta vs. Indianapolis, FOX, 1:00 pm: The Atlanta Falcons come off their bye week having won two straight games and face the Indianapolis Colts who are still seeking their first win of the season. A win will guarantee that the Falcons will improve their standing in the NFC South before next week's big match up with the Saints at the Georgia Dome.

Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans, FOX, 1 pm: The Buccaneers could be headed to New Orleans at the wrong time given the Saints lackluster performance last week against the Rams. The Saints hold a one game lead over both the Bucs and the Falcons in the NFC South. After hosting Tampa Bay this weekend, New Orleans hits the road to take on the Falcons in Week 10.

Carolina - Bye Week: Carolina limps into its bye week at 2-6 and dead last in the NFC South. The Panthers will try and heal up this week before hosting Tennessee in Week 10.
