Who to watch

Tevin Coleman

With Devonta Freeman out with a concussion, rookie Tevin Coleman will get the start. He impressed in the Week 1 victory over Philadelphia, but left early in Week 2 with a ribs injury. He’s up against a strong defense, but Coleman has the tools to have a good game. The Falcons need to get the ball moving on the ground.

Matt Ryan

Ryan has made costly errors too often this season, and his two interceptions (not including the Hail Mary pick at the end) cost Atlanta points. The first was in the Colts’ end zone and cost them at least three, and the pick-six from his own end zone was just awful. He needs to step up his game.

Paul Worrilow

Worrilow has been strong against the run this year, and he will need to have a big game to help slow down Adrian Peterson. Worrilow won’t be required to drop into coverage as often this week as the Vikings will lean on the run game. Worrilow will be key.
