Stafford looked very bad against the Falcons defense a year ago. He's more "arm talent" than "grey matter."
I'd like to see the Falcons defense continue to build off its recent success and go in there and stomp the Lions offense. But given how incongruous (yeah, I know big word
) the Falcons have been this year, this will probably be more of the plodding game we've regularly seen from the Falcons this season.
It will be great if the Falcons build off this week's momentum, go up to Detroit and lay the smackdown on them. But I don't expect it to happen, nor will I take points off if they do not. It would be nice to see, in order to see this team building towards something in January, as the cherry on top, but not required.
