THE TEAM NEWS

ATLANTA FALCONS

  • Atlanta suffered a fourth defeat of the season as they conceded 53 points on their way to a big loss on the road against Houston and if they fail to beat Arizona on Sunday, their season could already be too far gone to save.
  • RB and kick returner Kenjon Barner missed his second successive game with a knee injury last week but could return for this match with a limited participation on Wednesday suggesting he is trending that way.
  • WR Julio Jones appeared on the injury report at the start of the week and is a doubt due to nursing a hip injury and he was joined on the sidelines by CB Bidi Breh-Wilson and CB Desmond Trufant.

ARIZONA CARDINALS

  • Arizona won their first game of the season but they had to rely on a late FG after blowing a 14-point fourth quarter lead and will hope to claim a more comfortable victory this time around as they host fellow strugglers Atlanta.
  • Cardinals CB Tramaine Brock suffered a shoulder injury during last Sunday's victory with the severity set to be assessed during the week but he managed to log a limited practice on Wednesday so should be available.
  • On the flip side, LB pairing Terrell Suggs and Zeke Turner both sat out Wednesday’s practice with back and shoulder issues respectively and if either of them are unable to suit up on Sunday, new acquisition Ramik Wilson could be forced into action.

THE PREDICTION

Atlanta have brushed off suggestions that they may need to shake-up their coaching staff after falling to their fourth defeat from their five games so far this season. Those suggestions may come back with a vengeance if they fall to another defeat this week with the performance likely to be irrelevant if another loss occurs. They travel to an Arizona team that picked up their first win of the year last week and can build on that with another win here to really place head coach Dan Quinn under pressure.
