The Atlanta Falcons and Arizona Cardinals seem to be pretty much on equal footing into what appears to be a dud of a game this week.Injuries have essentially ruined each team's season. The Falcons (4-9) have dropped five straight and have the NFL's worst rushing offense. The Cardinals (3-10) have lost four of five with the league's second-worst rushing attack. They rank last in scoring and passing.The Falcons entered Week 1 as a Super Bowl contender after winning the NFC title in 2016 and advancing to the divisional round last year Brian Poole Jersey , but they lost three starters on defense and three on offense. Atlanta hasn't been the same since.That's nothing compared to Arizona's injured list. The Cardinals lost defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, a first-round pick in 2016, to knee surgery this week and have placed 16 players on season-ending injured reserve. Six of them were offensive linemen."Injuries and all this stuff happen all the time," Arizona rookie quarterback Josh Rosen said."It's just that the degree happens to be a little bit more here this particular year. Throughout your football life, you're always faced with adversity in different forms and fashions. It just happens to be a little bit more. I've got to buck up and get ready just a little bit more."A few things to know about Sunday's game:JULIO JONES vs. PATRICK PETERSONTwo of the best are expected to face off when Falcons receiver Julio Jones, the only player in league history with at least 1,400 yards receiving in five consecutive seasons, faces Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson."You're talking about two of the best at their position," Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said. "Who knows? Two guys that could be future Hall of Famers. It's going to be a great contest. I know Patrick is excited about the 鈥?I don't want to call it a challenge 鈥?but the opportunity to be able to cover Julio."Arizona's defense, Peterson included, has enjoyed some good days with 11 interceptions in its past four games against Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Only Carolina, Tampa Bay and New Orleans have more, and they are in the same division as Atlanta.Jones missed some time this week after getting sent home with flu-like symptoms Authentic Deion Jones Jersey , but is likely to play.LOPSIDED MATCHUP?The difference Rosen and Ryan is substantial.Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP, is an 11-year veteran with a 99-72 record. He has the NFL's leading wideout in Jones, and if he's covered tightly, Ryan has the option of looking to first-round pick Calvin Ridley, seven-year veteran Mohamed Sanu or tight end Austin Hooper.Rosen, the 10th overall draft pick, has a 62.8 rating to rank 32nd among eligible passers. He has yet to top 2,000 yards and has three victories.Rosen's star receiver, Larry Fitzgerald, is one of only two players in history with at least 16,000 yards receiving, but had just one catch entering the fourth quarter of last week's sluggish home loss to Detroit. That's mostly because the Cardinals had recently lost Christian Kirk Youth Jake Matthews Jersey , their second-leading receiver, to a broken foot, and Fitzgerald was easier to contain.Atlanta ranks fourth in passing, but Ryan has been under duress all season and is on pace to finish with a career-high 46 sacks.BALL SECURITYFalcons coach Dan Quinn bemoans his team's minus-4 turnover margin. Atlanta has nine interceptions, five by second-year safety Damontae Kazee. Arizona is worse with a turnover margin that ranks 29th, but Quinn isn't concerned with opponents.It's been an ongoing, unpleasant topic all season for a defense that has recovered just two fumbles."Defensively there will be 10 to 12 plays (per game)," Quinn said. "Did you take the shot? Did you make the interception? Did you cause the fumble on the sack?"Offensively there will be the same. Did you take care of it in traffic? Did you go get the contested catch? It's during those moments that I want to make sure that's the strongest indicator of where our focus is. Make sure we're thinking about the football in all cases."KEEP IT CLEANNothing irritates Ryan more than penalties. The Falcons aren't among the league's worst offenders, but they've made a habit of untimely gaffes. That was the case last week at Green Bay."What's important is how you respond to it, and we didn't do a good enough job of responding in those situations," Ryan said. "They're tough to overcome. Penalties, particularly when you're on the road, it's more difficult to overcome those things and keep drives going. So percentage-wise when we get our chances and create those plays , we've got to keep them. We have to keep the ball where it is."GEORGIA BLUESThe Cardinals were to leave Friday to get a day to adjust to the time difference. They could use whatever edge that can muster. Atlanta has not been friendly as Arizona has lost eight straight in the Peach State since its most recent win in 1993.AP Sports Writer Bob Baum in Phoenix contributed to this reportFalcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Thursday, Sept. 6 It’s here. It’s finally here. Like your tax refund or the food delivery guy to provide sustenance after a long night out. Like Diablo III or the afternoon you can finally go outside without being smothered by oppressive humidity. Yes, folks: It’s game day. Dust off whatever stress management device you prefer, put on your drinkin’ shoes, and gorge on the latest Falcoholinks before we take on the Eagles tonight. Eagles limping as Falcons stroll inThe Atlanta Falcons are in pretty good shape as they head to Lincoln Financial Field, while the Eagles are dealing with a multitude of injuries among key starters. Most noteworthy, of course, are Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery, which leaves the Eagles’ offensive potential as a question mark in this one.Both teams released their final injury reports, and while Ben Garland, Isaiah Oliver, and Blidi Wreh-Wilson will miss the opener, the Falcons are predominately healthy in all phases of the game.Bird Battle Point-CounterpointDave indulged his masochistic side and headed over to Bleeding Green Nation to providethree reasons why the Falcons will leave Philly angry and sad. It’s a bleak-yet-informative read Mohamed Sanu Jersey , one we collectively hope doesn’t come to fruition. But that’s not all! Brandon Gowton of BGN joined us over here on friendlier territory and gave these three reasons the Eagles will lose tonight. They involve hangovers and Nick Foles, and as my hangover was a direct result of Nick Foles the last time these teams met, that seems to check out.Knapp time?Jeff Schultz over at The Athletic does yeoman’s work covering Atlanta sports, and his latest piece expounds on a thought we’ve entertained since the Falcons brought back Greg Knapp: that Knapp will have a heavy role in the offensive scheming. The Falcoholic’s Cory Woodroof explored this a bit more, and spelled out what it could mean for the coaching arrangement going forward.The Falcoholic Podcast Ep. 48This week DW and Jeanna Thomas were joined by honorary Falcoholic Michael Kelly, die-hard Birds fan and everyone’s favorite sociopathic fixer on Netflix’s House of Cards. Come for the banter, stay for the analysis, and let’s all agree that the Bucs, Panthers and Saints are all trash. This week’s topics include a preview of tonight’s game in Philly, a look at Atlanta’s defensive potential this season, and why this game will be won in the trenches. Be sure to give it a listen here, and thanks to Michael for joining the show!
