The Atlanta Falcons will play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday as the Cardinals look to desperately claim an unlikely win against the high flying Falcons to get their record onto level terms to make a run for the postseason. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the link provided below.
The Falcons' long unbeaten run finally came to an end last week and although that would have been disappointing they are still obviously in a fantastic position for the postseason and will be keen to put that first blip in their season behind them. They will be looking to get right back on track with a confident win against the struggling Arizona Cardinals today.
However, this will likely be a tough game for the Falcons and the Cardinals will not be in any mood to just lay down. The Cardinals will have seen the Falcons fall to their first defeat of the season last week and it will have given them hope. Seeing how the New Orleans Saints turned the Falcons away on three separate occasions when they were on the 1-yard line will have shown the Cardinals that the seemingly infallible Falcons can be tackled and beaten.
Arizona will be hoping that the first loss for Atlanta will have put some doubts among the Falcons' team and that the result last week will have stung them. Some might however fear a backlash in today's game, and the Falcons will surely come out with all guns blazing today to get their winning habit back on track.
The Cardinals are fresh off their bye week and will be desperate to punish the Falcons with their second straight loss and move up to a 5-5 record. The Cardinals are currently third in the NFC West, and are two games behind Seattle who are on 6-4, and also behind the San Francisco 49ers who are currently 6-2-1.
A win today for the Cardinals would be a hug boost for their confidence and also put them in a much better position to make a late surge for the postseason.
