NEXT OPPONENT: ATLANTA (6-4)
The Falcons have been in free fall since starting the season 5-0. A stagnant offense cost them in Sunday’s home loss to Indianapolis.
OPPONENT WEEK 11
Colts 24, Falcons 21
The Falcons blew a pair of two-touchdown leads as the visiting Colts, behind backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s two touchdown passes, scored the upset. Atlanta also lost rushing leader Devonta Freeman (concussion).
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Matt Ryan, quarterback
Ryan passed for three touchdowns Sunday but also threw three interceptions. His stats have diminished markedly since the 5-0 start, and he has 15 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions this season.
The Vikings, who have been good in road games, should affect Ryan with their pass rush. Outlook: Horns up.
