The Atlanta Falcons' bid for an undefeated season will last at least one more week, as they have a bye in Week 7. Atlanta will return next week when the Falcons visit the Philadelphia Eagles.

Elsewhere in the NFC South, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints. Tampa Bay can even its record at 3-3 with a win, while New Orleans is looking to avoid a 1-5 start.
