Desmond Trufant will have the tough task of covering T.Y. Hilton and at times, receivers Donte Moncrief and Andre Johnson. The Indianapolis Colts’ receiving corps is loaded to say the least, so all hands must be on deck in order to contain arguably the best corps in the NFL.

Trufant will lead the Falcons’ secondary come Sunday and will need to shut down whomever he may be covering to keep Matt Hasselbeck’s eyes’ moving. If the Falcons’ secondary can force Hasselbeck to hold the ball, the pass rush very well could have a big game with a weak Colts’ offensive line.
