Cardinals vs. Falcons, Week 11 preview: Atlanta tries to get back on track

The Falcons hope to bounce back from their first loss when they take on Arizona.

Chris Graythen

The Atlanta Falcons host the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday as they look to bounce back from their first defeat of the season. The Falcons fell to the Saints in Week 10, though they still have a comfortable lead in the NFC South, with the 5-4 Buccaneers their closest competition.

Arizona enters the week on a five-game losing streak; it has not won a game since Sept. 30. During the losing streak, the Cardinals have been limited to 17 points or fewer in every game. Twice they were held to just a single field goal.

On the season, Arizona ranks 31st in the NFL in both total offense and scoring. The Cardinals have been better on the other side of the ball, where they rank ninth in total defense and fifth in points allowed per game.

Atlanta is sixth in total offense and 20th in total defense.

Game Time: 1 p.m. ET

TV: FOX

Odds: Atlanta is favored by 10 or 11 1/2 points, depending on the sportsbook.
