The Atlanta Falcons face the San Diego Chargers on Sunday afternoon in a battle of 2-0 teams with elite quarterbacks. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been very good in the early stages of 2012, as he's completed more than 70 percent of his passes and hasn't thrown an interception. The Chargers' Philip Rivers is also off to a good start as he tries to bounce back from a 2011 season that saw him throw 20 interceptions.

The Chargers are dealing with some injuries to key contributors on offense -- running back Ryan Mathews is questionable, and all-pro tight end Antonio Gates is probable after sitting out the team's Week 2 game. The Falcons have concerns of their own, as both Roddy White and Julio Jones were limited in a couple of practices this week. Both should be ready to go against San Diego.

Kickoff Time: 4:05 p.m. ET

TV: FOX

Radio: The Zone 790 AM
