The Arizona Cardinals probably couldn't have picked a worse week to head to Atlanta to try to end their five-game skid.
The Falcons are coming off of their first loss of the season, at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, and are trying to make sure they don't embark on their first losing streak of the 2012 season. At 8-1, the Falcons are still the best team in the NFL and they are one of three teams to remain undefeated at home.
The Cardinals are coming off of a bye week, but that isn't easing most people's concerns about a possible win. Yahoo! Sports columnists and the voting public both picked the Falcons to prevail. CBS Sports also unanimously agreed that the Falcons would prevail and head to 9-1.
ESPN hasn't posted its Week 11 picks yet, but it looks like a safe gamble that most pundits will pick the Falcons to send the Cardinals to their sixth straight loss on the season.
