The Falcons are picking up right where they left off in 2018, by playing terrible football. They are 1-4 to open the year, and the only teams with worse point differentials are the four who have failed to net a win. Atlanta is 10th in the NFL in yards per game, but has been unable to convert that into points, averaging a shade over 20 per game. Their defense has been even worse, allowing over 30 points per game. Only the Dolphins have given up more. With that said, the Falcons have the fortune of playing in a dome against the fifth-worst defense by points per game, and the eighth-worst by passing yards per attempt. This has all the makings of a potential shootout.

The Cardinals finally got off the deck with a win against Cincinnati. Of course, the Bengals are one of two 0-5 teams in the league, but a win is a win! Arizona is by far the highest-paced team in the league, but Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense has been trying to dink and dunk its way to success. That changed in Week 5, when the Cardinals had a 10.2 average depth of target on pass attempts, fifth-highest in the league. If the team can continue that with the dynamic pace, we should see their production rises dramatically going forward.
