The Falcons out of the gate looked like a top-tier team after going 5-0 to start, but have lost three of four to fall back to the pack. At 6-3, they seem to be a distant second-place in the NFC South. Matt Ryan’s play over the last four games has not been the reason; the Falcons have just struggled to put the ball into the end zone.
Atlanta will look for that trend to end on Sunday at home against the Colts, who are starting 40-year-old veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in place of injured Andrew Luck. Hasselbeck has had some success this season, leading the Colts to back-to-back wins.
