Sunday, two NFL squads with playoff aspirations meet for a Week 6 match-up amid a season on the brink of disaster. The Minnesota Vikings (1-4) welcome the winless Atlanta Falcons (0-5) to U.S. Bank Stadium in an attempt to right the ship. D. Orlando Ledbetter, Falcons Beat Reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, joined Kris Norton on The Morning Show Thursday to preview Sunday’s showdown.
With a combined record of 1-9, both the Vikings and Falcons have stumbled out of the gates in 2020:
Last week, the Falcons parted ways with Head Coach Dan Quinn and General Manager Thomas Dimitroff. Ledbetter explained why this was the right time to cut ties.
The Atlanta Falcons have struggled on defense to open 2020, surrendering the NFL’s second worst 32.2 points-per-game. Where might the Vikings look to exploit an underwhelming Falcons defense?
On the flip side, the Vikings have fared only slightly better. Minnesota ranks 28th in the league in points allowed, averaging 30.4 points through Week 5. Ledbetter looks to Quarterback Matt Ryan and crew to exploit the young Vikings secondary.
The Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons Week 6 game will be broadcast on KSDM radio at Noon on Sunday, pregame beginning at 11 a.m.
