Atlanta is undefeated on the season and holds a commanding four-game lead in the NFC South. The Falcons were especially impressive in a 30-17 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday.
Meanwhile, Dallas sits at 3-4 on the year and is desperately seeking a win in order to get back in the playoff chase. The Cowboys lost a heartbreaker to division-rival New York last week.
Despite being at home and having a much better record, Atlanta is not that big a favorite. However, most pundits seem confident that the Falcons will get the job done.
In his weekly picks, SB Nation's Joel Thorman predicted a 34-20 Atlanta victory.
