Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are a perfect 6-0 so far.

In Week 8, the Falcons visit the Philadelphia Eagles as Atlanta looks to stay undefeated. The teams have met in each of the last four seasons, and the Eagles have won three times. So far this season, the Falcons have the sixth-best offense and the seventh-best defense in the NFL.

Coming off a short week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night. The Buccaneers are 2-4 this season, despite scoring 12 more points than they've allowed.

The Carolina Panthers play in Chicago this week against the Bears. Chicago sports the league's toughest defense, allowing just 13 points per game on average.
