Coming off of the impressive win over the New Orleans Saints, the Atlanta Falcons will face yet another challenge in the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

A lot of attention is going to the elite Falcons offense that seems as if they can’t be stopped vs that same Bengals defense that was 3rd in the NFL in total yards allowed in 2013.

But don’t just glance at the match-up on the other end. The Bengals also hold a dynamic passing game with Andy Dalton and his successor AJ Green. To make matters worse, the Falcons have a struggling pass rush.

Let’s take a look at three match-ups you must keep your eyes on from start to finish.
