Matthew Stafford is completing 63.1 percent of his passes for nine touchdowns and six interceptions.
The Falcons sit in third place in the NFC South.They lost their fourth game in a row when they were beaten 29-7 by the Baltimore Ravens on the road. Since the start of the 2013 season, the Falcons are 6-17 and critics are saying it may be the end of the line for head coach Mike Smith, who has a 62-41 regular season record with the team.
Ever since they destroyed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 56-14 in Week 3, the Falcons have seen their scoring output drop every week. Atlanta's Matt Ryan has already thrown 13 TD's this season and Julio Jones is one of his main targets bagging 3 so far.
