NOV 21 BATTLE FOR THE SOUTH After their bye week, the Atlanta Falcons are in a position to take back the top spot in the NFC South.

They have lost six of their last eight games and are currently on a three-game losing streak, but a victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday would put them ahead of the Saints in second place.

The Buccaneers, who have a 4-6 record similar to Atlanta’s, are currently in third place because of the Falcons’ Week 6 victory.

Kickoff between the Falcons is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

NOV 12 BIJAN SCORES TD After much conversation about Bijan Robinson and his red zone usage, the rookie has run for a five-yard touchdown in the second quarter against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Falcons lead 14-6 midway through the second quarter.

NOV 7 FALCONS SWAP LINEBACKERS The Atlanta Falcons have signed linebacker Andre Smith Jr. and waived linebacker Tae Davis, per release.

Smith Jr. has spent much of this season on Atlanta’s practice squad but has seen action in three games, playing 51 total snaps on special teams and adding three additional defensive snaps. The six-year veteran has recorded one tackle this season.

Davis has played in all but one game, Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans when he was out with a concussion. He’s played 83 percent of Atlanta’s special teams snaps but been on the field for just one defensive snap.

The Falcons carry only three inside linebackers on their roster, with Kaden Elliss and Nate Landman serving as the starters

Now, Smith Jr. replaces Davis as their lead backup and special teams ace, starting Sunday at 4:05 p.m. EST against the Arizona Cardinals.

NOV 6 CARDINALS COULD START MURRAY VS. FALCONS Arizona Cardinals coach Jonathan Gannon announced Monday that Kyler Murray, who’s missed the entire season recovering from a torn ACL last year, will start at quarterback Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons “if all goes well” in practice

Murray will take reps with Arizona’s starters in practice, Gannon said, and if he’s physically able to play, he will.

The Cardinals started fifth-round rookie Clayton Tune at quarterback in this past Sunday’s 27-0 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Josh Dobbs, who beat the Falcons as the Minnesota Vikings’ signal caller, held the starting spot in Arizona for the first eight weeks.

With Murray back in the mix, life gets more difficult for Atlanta – and the stakes are only growing greater as Sunday’s 4:05 p.m. EST kick nears.

NOV 1 FALCONS INJURY REPORT As the Falcons are preparing for Sunday’s game versus the Minnesota Vikings, they will do so with a healthy Desmond Ridder, who, after exiting the 28-23 loss to the Tennessee Titans due to entering the concussion protocol, has since been cleared and was a full participate on Wednesday.
