The Falcons will try to rebound from a loss for the first time this season when they head to Tennessee to take on the Titans.
Atlanta dropped a decision in New Orleans to Drew Brees and the Saints 31-21 which marked their first loss of 2015.
The Titans suffered a much worse loss as they were dropped by Miami 38-10 on Sunday.
The Falcons 31-21 loss is just the first of the season as they can consider the first 6 weeks under new head coach Dan Quinn.
In all reality, the Falcons should have actually won the game. They had 3 lost fumbles, 2 of which were in the red zone, as they left a lot of points off the board. They also allowed the Saints to block a punt and recover it in the end zone which was another major error.
RB Devonta Freeman once again continued his dominance as he had another fantastic week. Freeman had 156 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown on the ground and touchdown through the air. Freeman will go for his 4th straight game of 150 yards or more against the Titans, who has allowed 139 yards per game over the last 4 contests.
Julio Jones continued to battle through a hamstring injury, but is showing signs of progressing as he caught 6 passes for 93 yards. Look for him to be near or at 100% Sunday which will spell trouble for Tennessee.
WR Roddy White finally found the end zone for the first time this season as he caught a touchdown pass in the first half. White has noticeably struggled and not fit in with Ryan and the Falcons offense this season.
It was a given the Titans would struggle this year with rookie Marcus Mariota calling the shots. Mariota was one of the most talented college QBs, but he has gone through some growing pains here early.
Things may have gotten a lot worse for him in the 38-10 loss to Miami as he suffered an MCL sprain in one of his 5 sacks on Sunday.
Even with the sprain, Mariota’s progress continues to get monitored and he will be listed as a game time decision come Sunday.
With the Titans run game averaging just 82 rush yards per game, the pressure really sits on Mariota. However, even if he plays, the MCL sprain will cause him a lot of problems as he tries to escape the pocket and run down field.
The Titans main reason for failure through their first 5 games has been scoring. Tennessee is averaging just 22.4 points per game and has scored 14 points or less in 3 of their last 4.

With Mariota’s status in question, even if he does play, things will be tough for him. The Falcons will blitz all day long and try to force Mariota into scrambling.
