The Falcons have lost their last three meetings against the Colts. But a can a winless, Peyton Manning-less Indy continue the streak?
The Falcons schedule presents a nice opportunity for the Falcons to continue improving with a trip to Indianapolis on Sunday. Atlanta has won back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Colts are still looking for that elusive first win of the year.
One season after finishing 13-3 and atop the NFC, the Falcons lost that many games before November. But Atlanta won its last two games before a Week 8 bye, including a 23-16 win over previously unbeaten Detroit.
The Colts' season has been a disaster without Peyton Manning. This is not surprising. What *is* surprising is that it's looking more and more like Indy's franchise QB might not play another down in the NFL. It's nearly impossible to understate what a blow that would be for the organization -- even if the Colts end up winning the #SuckForLuck sweepstakes and get Standford QB and über-prospect Andrew Luck in the 2012 NFL Draft.
