Minnesota Vikings vs. Atlanta Falcons, FOX, 1:00 pm: The Falcons may or may not have to deal with Adrian Peterson on Sunday as they go for their fifth win in their last six games. Atlanta trails the Saints by one game in the NFC South and they will look to keep the pressure on against a Vikings team that has struggled this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Tennessee Titans, FOX, 1:00 pm: Tampa Bay enters Sunday's game against the Titans struggling having lost four games in a row. The Titans are expecting Matt Hasselbeck to start after he suffered an elbow injury in last week's loss to the Falcons.

Carolina Panthers vs. Indianapolis Colts, FOX, 1:00 pm: The Panthers enter Sunday's contest with just two wins but that is two more than the Colts this season. After a hot start, Cam Newton has struggled of late with the Panthers losing six of their last seven games.

New York Giants vs. New Orleans Saints, ESPN, 8:30 pm: The Saints will try to maintain their division lead when they host the Giants on Monday Night Football. The Saints are unbeaten at home and are coming out of a bye week so expect them to be rested and prepared. After a surprisingly good start, the Giants have dropped two in a row and desperately need a win to keep pace in the NFC East.
