The Falcons look like they've hit a stride. With their victory over the Titans this past Sunday, Atlanta has won 4 of their last 5 games. That one loss is courtesy of head coach Mike Smith's bad decision, which he'll probably be asked about countless times over Thanksgiving dinner. This weekend, the Falcons face a Vikings team that may not have their best player in Adrian Peterson. Of course, AP is a tough dude, so you expect to see him play. But if he doesn't suit up on Sunday, we should probably just go ahead and tack on another one in the win column, right? —Jose Martinez
