i was encouraged with our offense. vick, when running, can keep drives alive. our receivers played SOOOO much better.

However, our defense has been the real problem this year. Our running defense played poorly until the Saints had to air it out in the second half.

I think Chicago will have success running on us- it's really up to the offense to keep with them and for the defense to bend but not break. It's possible for the Falcons to win in snowy Chicago (remember Packers in the playoffs). The Falcons seem to play better when they are on national TV (three monday night games and thanksgiving). I predict a close game- probaby most people that are not falcons fans think the falcons will lose.

Also- everyone says falcons don't have tie-breaker with dallas and minnesota? Though this i strue with dallas- the falcons have beaten minneosta head to head? i don't get it.
