3 Atlanta Falcons who must deliver against Los Angeles Chargers
By Nick Halden
The Atlanta Falcons need a home win this week to hold onto first place in the NFC South with the Bucs and Saints only a game back and both holding the current tiebreakers over Atlanta. The Falcons need to put together a winning streak to build a division lead to help cover for what could be a brutal ending to the schedule.
In the final four weeks of the season, the Falcons play the Bucs, Ravens, Saints, and Cardinals. All tough games with quarterbacks that could give Atlanta problems. While the Chargers have an elite quarterback they also have a struggling defense and a team that is looking increasingly beatable.
Atlanta will have games against the Steelers, Panthers, Bears, and Commanders after facing the Chargers giving them a great chance to string together four or five straight wins. For that to happen, however, Atlanta is going to need their playmakers to step up starting with a player that lost the game for Atlanta last week.
