Last week the Atlanta Falcons lost to the division rival New Orleans Saints, while the Rams were at home and made a remarkable comeback victory against the division rival Arizona Cardinals. Coming into the game the Falcons are seven point favorites to win even though the Rams are the team with the better record.
The injury report for the Rams is pretty short, but there are some big names on it. CB Quinton Pointer will be out with a thigh injury and S Darian Stewart is doubtful with a thigh injury as well. DE Chris Long is questionable with a hip injury and both RB Daryl Richardson and TE Cory Harkey are probable.
The Falcons injury report is a lot bigger starting with two of their biggest playmakers in Roddy White(ankle) and Julio Jones(knee), both are questionable. Also questionable are T Sam Baker(knee), DT Jonathan Banineaux(knee), LB Sean Weatherspoon(knee), and CB Asante Samuel (thigh). S Thomas DeCoud(knee), DT Peria Jerry(knee), DE Cliff Matthews(neck) are all listed as probable.
The last time the Rams played the Falcons was back in 2010 in St. Louis and the Rams lost 34-17. However, the Rams lead the all-time record Rams lead 47-27-2. This will be the first time that Steven Jackson will face against his old team. Steven Jackson left St. Louis in the offseason to go to Atlanta in hopes of winning a championship. The Rams have moved on from Jackson and will go into Atlanta in hopes of pulling out an upset and beginning their season 2-0 for the first time since 2001 when they finished the season 14-2 and made the Super Bowl.
